"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."
: John Ruskin

Before you hire a Hardwood Floor Refinishing contractor you're going to talk to a few of them. Most you talk to are going to quote you a low ball number; because they know less expensive is what catches the consumers attention. Once they have secured your business usually with a deposit and are ready to work in your home, they will try to upgrade you to something that's more expensive. Doesn't sound fair...does it?
Our Mission is to give you the information & resources to educate yourself about refinishing hardwood floors so you can be more informed when making your decision. We do this because after 30 years in the business, we are confident you will realize the value, quality and convenience of our service. The description of our packages include the names of the products we use on your floors, so you know exactly what you're paying for because MOST ARE NOT GOING TO TELL YOU! By reading this you are already more informed because now, you will be savvy enough to ask.
Most of the time our customers that need to sand wood floor are in need of floor refinishing because the finish is worn out, or for stain color changes. The wood itself is usually fine except for minor wood floor repair, like chips, cracks or holes from cable wires that we fix. Rarely is the floor beyond refinishing.
Floor refinishing always consists of 3 coats because 2 isn't enough. Just like paint, there are different manufactures & qualities of floor finish. Some of our customers want only the best and don't mind paying a little more; but many tell us they are preparing to sell their home so they want to save money by opting for something else. Please keep in mind "Better Products Cost More Money" Be the savvy shopper and ask about this before you hire someone.
Be The Savvy Consumer.
Most people have no idea what's involved in wood floor refinishing and call to ask for a price. Dustless floor refinishing and finish type is what can make it more expensive. Fast drying, water based (Latex is another term for water-based) finishes with quality Aluminum Oxide are extremely durable, better appearance and affords you convenience, (fast dry & no harmful vapor) however, it comes with a price tag. Water based with Acrylic is also fast drying, less expensive, not as good looking, and not as durable, so beware! Oil based finishes have been reformulated to comply with state EPA laws and is not the same product as it once was, don't fall for the "Good Old Polyurethane Routine" its 5x less expensive than quality Latex, and not convenient at all leaving your house smelling like a toxic waste dump for weeks. Oil Based Poly will probably be non-compliant w EPA laws in the near future and not available in the state.
Make Sure the Contractor has made the investment in proper dustless floor refinishing equipment before you make an investment in him!
