My apartment is 950 sq ft and the hardwood floors need to be sanded and stained. How much should I budget for this work in Montreal? Only looking for ideas at this time.

Thank you.

I would budget approximately $3.00-$4.00/sqft for now until you can provided additional specific detail.

I hope this helps.

Hello there;

The actual sanding and staining itself should be in the $3.00 to $4.00 per sq ft, however there are certain variables to consider...

-Are there base boards to come off and be reinstalled?

-Will you be moving around the furniture from location to location during the work?

-The amount of coats of stain and hardener can possibly increase or decrease the price.

-You as well have to consider the mess. It will be a strong odor for the better part of a week, there will be a tonne of dust so you will be cleaning for a very long time.

-You may need to move out for a week,and possibly place your furnishings in storage to expadite the project.

I hope this helps!!!

Kindest Regards,
