Larry F. says, "Bernard and his crew provided an overall great experience from start to finish. I have an older home that is in need of a lot of work. I had multiple people give me an estimate but I didn't feel like they were listening to what I wanted. Some didn't even respond at all. Jairo was very honest and patient with me (he knew I had no clue). He came to my house, listen to want I wanted and then educated me on options out there that can give me the look I wanted within my budget. He gave me an estimate (very reasonable) and told me when he would be available to get started. Him and his partner were on time for phase 1 of my remodeling project, floor installation in the kitchen, dining room, living room and bathrooms. They did an incredible job and made sure everything was cleaned up and back in place before they left. I am so happy how this project turned out. I am so excited and looking forward to starting phase 2 with Bernard very soon. Thanks for everything! Great job!!!" Read more

Your Hardwood Floor Refinishing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to refinish hardwood floors?

Professional hardwood floor refinishing costs $2 to $6 per square foot or $1,200 to $2,400 total on average. Refinishing hardwood stairs costs $25 to $85 per step.  

Refinishing includes sanding the surface layer to remove dings, scratches, or discoloration. After sanding, most contractors add a stain and a clear seal to protect the floor. Instead of sanding, you can lightly buff and recoat hardwood for $1.00 to $2.50 per square foot

Is it cheaper to refinish or replace hardwood floors?

Hardwood floor refinishing is cheaper than the cost to install new hardwood floors, which is $6 to $15 per square foot. Floors should be replaced instead of refinished when they have substantial water damage, warping, or subfloor issues.

Is refinishing hardwood floors worth it?

Refinishing hardwood floors is worth it because it increases the value of your home and may prevent costly repairs or replacements later on. Solid hardwood floors can be refinished 4 to 10 times, depending on thickness and age, before they shold be replaced. 

Homes built before the 1920s often have thinner wood flooring that shouldn't be sanded. In those cases, buffing and recoating is a better option.

Do you tip floor refinishers?

Tipping floor refinishers is optional but appreciated. Most contractors are paid an hourly wage and do not expect tips. You may choose to tip $10 to $30 per person if their work exceeds your expectations.

How long does it take to refinish hardwood floors?

Hardwood floor refinishing takes 2 to 6 days, depending on the home size, layout, and finish type. After refinishing:

  • Wait 24 hours before walking on the floor in socks and 7 days for bare feet or shoes.
  • Wait 4 to 5 days before moving furniture into the room.
  • Wait 3 to 4 weeks before placing area rugs on the floor.

How often should I refinish hardwood floors?

You should refinish hardwood floors every 7 to 10 years, especially when the floors have:

  • Scratches
  • Dings
  • Discoloration
  • Other damage

How do I choose a hardwood floor refinisher?

Start by searching our list of professional hardwood floor refinishers, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Read reviews and browse their work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Choose a company that is licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance, guarantees, and warranty.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before work begins.
  • Avoid making large payments up front. Follow a payment schedule instead.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the best refinishing company your area.

What questions should I ask hardwood floor contractors?

Consider the following questions when looking for hardwood floor refinishers:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Can I see a portfolio of your work?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Are you a member of the National Wood Flooring Association (NFA)?
  • Do you charge for in-home estimates? If so, do you apply that to the total cost?
  • What type of wood is best for my home?
  • How long will the project take?
  • Do you offer a warranty? If so, what does it include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate and contract?

I had a list of items that needed to be done. Josh and William completed every one of them. I am so happy to have found them. I am already thinking of what needs to be done next. What I really appreciated is that if they can repair it instead of replacing they will.
Incredible remodeling
Evelyn G.
Henry is very professional. I’ve been using him over the years. He has remolded ny floors, kitchen, bathrooms and installed baseboards. I have a few pictures. Timing is always good and the work itself cannot be compared to other contractors. He is not the cheapest because his work is not cheap. I’ve had 3 homes and have learned that you get what you pay for. He is highly recommended.

Bernard brought his incredible commitment and enthusiasm to our kitchen project. He was available and responsive to our many questions, diligent about the scheduling of the sub-contractors, a source of ideas and problem solving, and quick to correct any issues that arose. We love our new kitchen, and can’t imagine a more positive experience.
