Floor Sanding Cost Variability

How much will my floor sanding cost? The cost of the floor sanding varies according to the condition of the floor, the size of the floor space, the type of wood floor and the finish required. It is, however, advisable to choose experienced professionals and the right floor for you over the cost, so as to ensure you have what you want. Our team of professionals always carry out the best job and guarantee you will be satisfied with the work we do.

Condition of the Wood

The way the wood has been treated since fitting has much influence over the costs incurred. Wooden floors which have been carpeted several times, using nails and glues will be damaged to a degree, demanding extra sanding. The wood which has been covered by laminates use strong glues which often take several sanding attempts to remove before our work can begin. The finish will always be professional and sanded to perfection before we begin any further work.

The Size of the Floor Space

The size of the floor space has an influence over the cost of the job, as a small room will be less than a large room, as will a regular shaped room compared to an angular space. The number of sandings and coats of varnish will also require extra work, as the damage caused requires careful attention to restore the wooden floor to its original condition before work can begin. We guarantee whatever the size or shape, our work will be professional and to your expected standards.

Type of Wood

The many different woods used as flooring have a degree of impact on the cost as the wood may require treating before work can begin. Our professional team will communicate such information with you and guide you through the necessary steps to restore the wood before we sand and varnish. The final product will achieve your requirements and bring you the satisfaction of having a wooden floor.

The Finish

The type of finish required incurs costs which will ensure you have exactly what you want. The different types of finish are set at different prices, according to base. The solvent based products are hard wearing but carry a distinctive smell on application and often looks less natural than the water based products, which are cheaper but look as nature intended. The solvent based products are recommended for rented accommodation and work places, as the wear and tear is of a greater demand than a private home. The ownership of pets is also worth considering, as the solvent based can take the constant traffic of feet and paws, whereas the water based needs more care.

The type of finish also involves the use of gloss, satin or matt. The gloss finish has the highest level of sheen and gives that warm glow in the winter to make you feel cosy and relaxed, as well as the natural coolness of a summer's day. The dark room will be lit instantly and allow a natural light instead. Satin and matt finishes are less striking but just as natural and warming. Our professionals will advise you every step of the way so you make the right choice.

The Professional Touch

Our team of professionals will guarantee the look and finish you want, guiding you every step of the way and ensuring your complete satisfaction with the finished product. Wood flooring is the natural way to liven your home, personalise your space and give it that fresh look. Regardless of the costs involved, nothing looks better than a well sanded and varnished wooden floor.
