Hardwood floor refinishing is a great way to refresh stained, scratched, dented or sun-faded wood floors. Plus, it can add value to your home! A win-win, right? While contemplating if you should refinish or not, you may start to wonder, how much does it cost? Luckily, we have given you a price breakdown below and other good tips you need to know.
How Much Does it Cost to Refinish?
The cost of refinishing an area truly depends on how large the space is and the type of stain your contractor will have to use. However, our prices are generally based on the type of room:
- Master bedroom: $1500
- Foyer: $835
- Dining room: $1400
- Living room: $2000
- Family room: $2500
- Great room: $3400
Again, these prices fluctuate based on size and materials. In addition, we can also refinish other rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms, etc. For an estimate on your home, send us images of the areas you would like to refinish.
Should I Refinish or Recoat My Floors?
Did you know that you do not have to necessarily refinish your floors right away? Instead, you can recoat them with polyurethane. So when do you know when to recoat and when to refinish? Recoating your floors should happen every three to five years. You are only doing surface-level fixes, as in light scratches and stains. Refinishing lasts about five to ten years, depending on how well you care and maintain your floors. If you want even more information, check out our latest guide here.
Can I Save Money Refinishing On My Own?
This is a question that clients ask all the time. And while there are many other home projects that you can do on your own to save money, hardwood floor refinishing is not one of them. Yes, you can refinish them yourself, but we have seen more horror stories than successful ones. When it comes to wood floor refinishing, you need to have the right kind of stain, equipment, knowledge and experience. We have seen many amateurs and inexperienced professionals cause more damage than good. And by the end, you end up spending more money trying to fix your mistakes. That is why it is always a good idea to work with a skilled refinisher from the get-go.
