Is it cheaper to refinish or replace hardwood floors?

Refinishing your hardwood floors is almost always cheaper than replacing them entirely. New hardwood floors typically cost between $1.75 and $9 per square foot to install, or $1,500 to $10,000. Refinishing your floors will generally cost around $2.70 and $3 per square foot, or $600 to $5,000. 

It’s always better to refinish your floors when they’re still in good condition rather than waiting until they have heavy damage and scratching. This will lower your costs in the long run, and it’s a great way to preserve your floors. 

Contact the best wood floor refinishers near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your floors.

Is refinishing hardwood floors worth it?

Refinishing your hardwood floors has many benefits for homeowners, both short- and long-term. For example, it can immediately improve the value of your home by appealing to future buyers. You might also save money in the long run, as damaged floors require expensive maintenance and may even need to be replaced. And a professional floor refinisher will have the tools and equipment to refinish your floors safely and efficiently.

Talk to the top-rated hardwood floor refinishers in your area to find out if refinishing your floors is a good idea for your home.

How long does it take to sand and refinish hardwood floors?

It typically takes between two and five days to refinish hardwood floors, depending on the type of polyurethane you use (oil or water-based), and the size and condition of your floors.

For example, some flooring businesses may be able to sand approximately 1,500 to 2,000 square feet in one day or several hundred square feet in a few hours. Re-sanding floors with old finishes will usually take longer than sanding unfinished hardwood. It might also take longer to sand floors in older homes, floors that have sustained water damage or floors located in humid environments. 

Contact the best hardwood floor refinishers near you to find out how long it will take to sand and finish your floors.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a flooring professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To safely set up a consultation or appointment with a flooring professional and avoid the risk of transmitting COVID-19, start with an online search. Contact the professional through a message and ask to set up a video or phone call to discuss the project. This lets the professional visualize what needs to be done without physically needing to be there. Discuss the project’s timeline, budget, virtual payment capabilities and adherence to guidelines set forth locally and by the CDC.

Can I use digital payments to pay for floor installation, replacement or repairs?

Many local flooring professionals offer digital payments to conduct transactions for floor repairs, installation, replacement and more. This trend has been increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is prompting flooring professionals to take payments through Venmo, Square Cash, PayPal, Google Pay, Zelle and other convenient platforms. 

To ensure you can safely pay for the service, contact the professional beforehand and ask which services are acceptable. Take any measures necessary to comply with guidelines on social distancing.

Do flooring professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Because flooring work has to be done in-person, flooring professionals are typically unable to perform work virtually. If you come across a pro's profile that states they're offering remote services, message the pro to see what those services include.

If you plan to get indoor flooring installed once the pandemic is over, you can ask potential flooring specialists if they host virtual consultations through video calls and digital messaging. Compare flooring professionals in your area online to find the right fit, and book an appointment.

How can I find out if a flooring professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a flooring professional is considered an essential service in the current coronavirus pandemic, consult your city or state’s government website. To get a sense of the national recommendations, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage

This page lists 16 different infrastructure sectors that are officially considered essential during this time. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. Ultimately, you should consult with your local government. 

Does a flooring professional need to enter my home?

If the flooring project is located inside your residence, performing the job would require the flooring professional to enter your home. This is not recommended by the CDC during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if a flooring project takes place in a separate location outside of your home, the flooring professional will not need to enter your home. 

Talk to flooring professionals in your area to see if it’s necessary for them to enter your home. If so, you might want to postpone the project until social distancing guidelines are relaxed by the government.

How much are oak hardwood floors?

Installing oak hardwood floors can add value and beauty to your home. The cost of hardwood floors is typically based on the overall square footage of your new floor, the type of oak you select, any repair work your subfloor requires prior to installation, and any demolition costs to remove your old flooring. Other factors that will affect your total cost can include the regional cost of labor and business overhead of your flooring company.

A flooring installation company may charge $3 per square foot for standard installation. For hand-scraped (higher-end) ¾-inch oak planks, the cost is approximately $7 per square foot, for a total cost per square foot of about $10 as long as no repair work is required. Standard oak planks are available from big-box stores for as low as $3 per square foot, so the quality of oak you want will affect your total project cost.

If you're looking for a professional to refinish your hardwood floors that is excited about their trade, responsive to their customer's needs and time, does quality work and has great communication skills then look no further than New Concepts Hardwood Floors. My wife and I are flipping her mother's house. The original plan was to do everything ourselves including refinishing the 65 yr. old abused hardwood floors. As with most projects the timeline was getting longer and longer. I was seeing another 3 full weekends of work to do the floors myself so the research into finding a trustworthy, reliable and affordable company to refinish the floors began. I chose New Concepts because of the reviews, the very quick initial response and after meeting the owner, Tim. The knowledge, passion and experience Tim expressed made the decision easy. I definitely knew he truly cared about his craft and his customers. Tim and his team truly exceeded our expectations on quality, time and service. The only drawback is I'm finding it hard to get the rest of the work in the house done because I can't stop staring at the awesome beautiful floors we now have.

We were super happy with our decision to have Edgar refinish the hardwoods in our new house before we moved in. Our closing date changed more than once and I had to reschedule him and he was very patient and professional about the changes. The floors turned out beautiful and we are excited to start moving in tomorrow! I can not recommend Edgar highly enough. We will definitely be sharing his name with our friends and family when they need their floors refinished. Thank you, Edgar!!

I am a general contractor, and was looking for a hardwood floor refinisher for a client. Clients were impressed with Tim's explanation of what needed to be done and how he planned to accomplish the work and how much it would cost all on the spot. The work was done quickly and cleanly, and looks great. I will refer Tim to other clients with no fear of problems.

We were very happy with LeviArs’ work on our home refinishing and installing hardwood flooring. They worked through Seattle’s “Snowpocalypse” driving on icy roads to our house when others might have stayed home. They accommodated all of our requests and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. They were the most competitively priced too. Our floors look amazing and we couldn’t be happier. We’d highly recommend LeviArs to anyone!

Otto’s Hardwood Floors is such a great company. José took the time to come out and give a free estimate for the work to be done, repaired part of my floor for free, and finished the work early. He was courteous enough to take the time to answer all of my questions throughout the process. The work he and his team did was fantastic and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. Our floors were in pretty rough shape and had not be treated in many years as the top clear coat was non existent, there was water damage, and had other problem areas that floors of almost 70 years would have. We will definitely hire again and would highly recommend to anyone needed their floors refinished.

Tim was fantastic! He was timely, communicated well with me, had exceptional attention to detail, and our refinished floor looks amazing! I really appreciated his customer service and willingness to work around our family's schedule. He had the job finished in exactly the time he estimated, and the whole project was completed in just a couple of weeks (from estimate to completion). He has great product knowledge and recommendations. We also appreciated that he explained where costs could be saved. I would recommend him without hesitation for any hardwood project, and have already recommended him to our neighbors!
