How much does it cost to resurface a hardwood floor?

Let's say it's about 20X15

can you re-surface a small area or do you have to get it all even and do the whole thing?

I would think sanding and restaining the whole floor would look better.

I'd do the whole thing. If you rent a floor sander and the paper that SHOULD cost around $100 I would think.

Mexicans are cheap.

What are your remedies for light hardwood floor damage?

I had a house with old pine floors that had water damage, and a few other bad spots. We took a rough sander, scuffed it up good. Cleaned the floors, then took a thin pre-finished Glue down and went over it. The secret, run the board the opposite direction. Its like when they make plywood, the verniers are crossed, back and forth. Easy to do and cost is minimal. Repair and refinishing is labor intensive.

300 square feet...
add 10% for waste gives you 330 square feet

if you do 3.25 a square foot wood that comes 15.5 square feet a carton... it would be 1108.25 before you add transition pieces and shoe molding...

This would assume you are doing the labor yourself and have glue

I just did 550 sq.ft. of tile for less than that. Tile, thin set and grout was right at $1000.....labor was free.

I'd still like to see the bad area.

Rent a buffer. Buy the scrubber pads. Buff that shite out. Mop the frick out of it. Slap some stain on that bitch. 300 bucks?

How much was the tile though? If you are doing .79 cent tile then yeah.

Of course he can get cheaper wood than 3.25, I just did that number to give him an idea of what he would be looking at. He could get some 2.99 wood and I think Home Depot has some cheaper than that.
