What is the standard price for refinishing a hardwood floor?

hard wood floor refinishing Add comments

I’m guessing that the room (my living room) is 13×13. There is latex paint covering the wood currently, which would need to be stripped before a natural finish is put on the floor. I don’t want anything fancy, just a routine strip and finish job. How much would you say this job would normally run?

It will run you ( as a ball park figure) 3/5 $ a s/f to strip and refinish the flooring. This will depend on where you live and the going rate there , but this will give you and idea.
Have a flooring persons(s) give you a written quote, after they see the floor. It can be firmed up after they visually see the floor..GL

    Well, you could make it a DIY project: Here’s a good site to reference if you decide to do that
    http://www.findanyfloor.com/
    Also on this site, you can go into forums and see who other people care for and refinish their floors. Just a suggestion.
    Also, look for a local contractor… have them come and give an estimate – many people have diff. prices… depending on how well your hardwood has been cared for. You can find one at that same site using the flooring directory. Hope this helps you out! have a great day! :)

    There is no such thing as a standard fee, or routine job. All jobs are different, as are the prices of each individual. Get 3 estimates.
