Refinishing Hardwood Floor Cost?

hard wood floor refinishing Add comments

I have a section of flooring in my house that is approximately 300 square feet. The flooring material is oak solid hardwood that is nailed directly to the sub-floor.

I want to refinish this to due to a bunch of surface defects and to change the general color to a darker stain. I do not want to do this work myself. I want to have a contractor sand it, stain it, coat it, etc. How much would this cost approximately? You can tell me by sq. ft. or total.

I realize there are many dynamics that can cause estimates to be higher or lower. I have no clue how much this would cost to do and am looking to ballpark it.

Thanks in advance.

$2.00 to $3.00 a square foot minimum 2 coats and a 3rd coat optional for a little more,3 coats if its a high traffic area.Good luck on your floors glad i could be a help. Wood flooring contractor Michigan.

    That smurf guy is nuts on those prices,and if he bids like that he must find himself sitting at home with no work.Forgot to mention staining will cost an extra 50 cents a square foot.

    I live in southern Illinois. I had the floors in my 1920’s house sanded and refinished about a year ago. The company I had do it charged $ 2.25/sq.ft. That included two coats of finish. It turned out beautifully!
