What Customers Want to Know

  • How much experience do you have?
  • Who will do the actual work? The business owner may be a salesman but not a refinisher. Determine the competency of the individuals who will be doing the work — and ask who will be supervising them.
  • Can you provide references? Not only do you want to talk to those references, you should take the time to visit businesses or residences where the contractor has done work. Be wary of contractors who won’t put you in touch with past clients.
  • Who is responsible for moving heavy furniture and appliances? How will you protect built-in cabinetry and shelving?
  • Who is responsible for cleanup and debris removal at the completion of the project?
  • How will you protect the rest of my home from dust?
  • What are the conditions of payment and to what extent do you guarantee your work?
the average professionally completed refinishing job costs $3.32 to $3.70 per square foot in 2014. That figures out to $2,656 to $2,960 to refinish 800 square feet of hardwood floors
