I called in the experts – the Hardwood Experts.
It was insane to think I could do the floors myself after checking out the equipment and reading up on the process. My hands were so bruised from scrapping the kitchen floor that it seemed impossible to sand down the 1000 sq. ft of white oak flooring in the house. I have never made a better decision. Three guys came out and sanded and sealed the floors for $1.70 a sq ft. Plus, they patched in a damaged board and filled the dings in for free. They were courteous, helpful, on time, and very professional. They also did the whole thing in 2 days!
It turned out beautiful – and if anything goes wrong with the urethane in the next year they will come out and fix it for free.
