My son just purchased a home in Orangeville and the floors need to be sanded and redone.

Before he goes out and attempts to do it himself I thought I would see what it costs to have a professional do it.

As well, what is the time span for sanding, staining, top coating and drying?

There are about 5 steps as well as the floors to be done.

Hi Robert

There are lots of variables when it comes to sanding down floors, many homes in Brampton from the 70's have the traditional 1-1/2 inch by 3/8 strip flooring, you need to pull a vent cover and determine if the floor has ever been sanded previously if so many companies will not refinish because there isn't the required thinkness.

A general price from a company such as Azores or Toronto hardwood is roughly $3-5.00 per sqft and goes up from there depending on finish and color.

Mark is correct in that there are a couple of variables pertaining to refinishing floors and the range is correct although in some cases the cost can be as low as $2.50 psf. Stairs will be extra.
