Frequently Asked Questions

 How much does it cost to buy stain for a wooden floor?
You can buy staining products in DIY stores starting from around $27* for a gallon. There are two main options: oil-based and water-based polyurethane.    Oil-based products can mean your project takes longer, as they need more time to dry between coats, but they are slightly tougher than water-based polyurethane. Flooring contractors may be able to obtain these finishing products at a trade discount, which can be cheaper than buying high-quality polyurethane yourself.
 Will it cost extra to have hardwood stairs refinished?
The cost of refinishing stairs is usually higher than for a flat floor because it takes a long time and a lot of the work is done manually. The average cost of refinishing hardwood stairs is between $80 and $140* per step. 
What is the cheapest option for replacing wood floors? 
If it is time to replace your wood floors, the cost of the project will depend on the material you choose. Lower priced options include pine at between $1.50 and $4* per square foot, while red oak ranges from $2 to $6* per square foot and exotic woods such as Brazilian walnut can cost between $5 and $9* per square foot. The cost of labor for installing your new floors will be charged separately. 
 Should I repair or replace my hardwood floors?
It is always cheaper to refinish rather than replace wooden floors, but there may come a time when they are damaged beyond repair. The boards can become very thin if they have been refinished too often, while water damage or decay can cause them to become sagging and soft. Speak to a contractor to find out which option is best for your home.
