The Complete Guide To Sanding And Refinishing Wooden Floors – How To Sand A Floor
As a homeowner faced with the task of bringing your wood floors back to life, it can be a very difficult decision whether or not fork out the money and hire a professional or roll up your sleeves and DO IT YOURSELF!
Is it going to look good enough when you’re done?
How can you be certain that you aren’t going to ruin your floors and end up REPLACING THE WHOLE LOT?
The decision can paralyze you!
Unfortunately, looking to the internet to get handy tips and tricks may lead you down the wrong path. It can very easily lead you to waste time and money or even cause you to give up in frustration.
I cannot tell you how many websites I have found giving inaccurate or outright destructive information. It is incredible how many people sand their floor once, then write a “How-To,” claiming to be a guru.
While their before and after photos look terrible.
Being a floor sanding professional can easily lead you to believe that floor sanding shouldn’t be undertaken by amateurs. And believe me, most professional floor refinishers are not shy in saying it! But they really do believe that, and so did I.
I have seen floors sanded by amateurs many, many times. Let me tell you, I have seen some horrific work.
Just over 2 years ago, I had a friend that wanted to sand his own floors. He was a long-distance from me so, lending a hand was out of the question. I spoke with him for no more than 30 mins on the phone, I told him what machines to hire, what to look for while doing the job and methods of using the tools.
A week later he sent me photographs of his floor and I was shocked!
I never had any faith that amateurs could do a good job, but what I eventually found, is that after giving people advice on the task of floor sanding, for a mere 30 minutes, gave them
ALL THE INFORMATION NEEDED…
…to do an absolutely fantastic job, by anyones standards.
You can quite easily tell the difference between those who were in-the-know and those who weren’t. Unfortunately you can only tell this after the fact.
Pareto’s Principle states that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. I can verify, that rule remains true here.
Just that slight boost in knowledge, can lead to dramatic differences in the quality of the finish.
You see, resanding and refinishing isn’t just about improving the floor. It’s about changing one’s entire house, an ascension on the family lifestyle ladder.
As home improvements go, refinished floors make that big impact like nothing else. They’re unparalleled as an upgrade.
I have seen some of my competitors consistently produce worse work than any DIY job I have seen. Luckily very few pro’s are like this, but how can you know whether the guy you’re hiring is the right one?
Did you know that resanding creates more attractive hardwood floors than new installations could ever hope to achieve?
I should know, I did both types of jobs for 10 years. Though more than 95% were resands and refinishes, because it was so much more sensible for the homeowner.
Nowadays those same wood-harvested trees are grown through genetically modified seeds, taking years instead of decades to reach maturity. That fast growth speed shows in the lackluster wood that they produce.
Yes, when you’re replacing the plumbing and electrics, best to call an expert.
But your floors? This isn’t rocket science my friend!
With just a couple hundred dollars for equipment rental, more for the materials, and an honest desire to do something meaningful with your hands, I guarantee you could do this job better than any expert. It’s your home, and no one cares about your house as much as you do.
Frankly when you’re paying a fixed-price job, people want to get it done quick and get paid. Not an issue at all when you do it yourself.
These figures assume your run-of-the-mill, three bedroom, two bath house. Expect to pay proportionally more for extra rooms.
This is exactly why you don’t see real estate agents recommending upgrading the floors prior to a sale – it’s so darn expensive it’s not worth it! But when you do it yourself, all that extra cash go straight into your pocket.
Even if you don’t sell, the cash is still accessible to you. Next time you’re looking to refinance some money, your appraiser is going to give you a higher price for the upgrade due to the improvement.
In my low-cost guide, I’m going to walk you through the entire process of sanding a floor. We go from the very basics prep stages all the way to putting the finishing touches on the floor to give it that extra “wow” factor that woos guests and family members alike.
What others are saying…
I am proud to anounce that I have finally, finally, FINALLY produced a video course. I have to admit I did get some emails, telling me that I should do a video course, because people dont want to read about floor sanding they want to watch it! Of course they do.. So I decided to rent a cabin in a farm, and lay a reclaimed oak floor, the roughest of which I have ever seen to be honest, cost me a lot of money too. I rented the sanding machines and I did as a DIY’er at home would do it. The rental place was even limited on abrasives, so I had to find work arounds which I explain in the videos. The videos include…
I have taken 2 courses with the major manufacturers in the industry.
These courses were being taught by people who rarely (if ever) actually sand floors themselves.
They have advice that sounds nice and easy, but they don’t encounter the problems that
professional floor refinishers like me encounter every day.
So how much do I charge for giving away my craft… My Trade Secrets?
