We have a £300 minimum charge for sanding and sealing with a Premium-grade Polyurethane lacquer, or Hardwax Oil finish because transport and labour costs are the same even if the area is only a small entrance hall. But the all-inclusive price quoted following a survey visit is VAT-Free! and the cost of restoring a wooden floor is far less than the cost of replacing it. If you add the expense of fitting to the cost of the raw materials - PLUS the cost of removal and disposal of the old floor, it makes sense to renovate rather than install.
A wooden floor renovation project causes much less hassle and is far less expensive than a complete replacement, because the cost of reconditioning does not include any charge for removal and disposal of the old timber floor or fitting of the new one. It would still be necessary to give the newly laid floor a light sanding anyway to ensure a smooth surface, and there is no doubt that a wooden floor restoration is Faster, less Hassle and much Cheaper than fitting a complete new wood floor. The final price depends on a number of factors, such as areas which are difficult to reach, the room size and of course your choice of finish. However, the itemised written quotation prepared by our surveyor is comprehensive and will include everything without any hidden extras.
Some people actually like a bit of DIY and consider hiring a floor sanding machine to have a go themselves, but floor sanding and refinishing is a difficult process which requires a high level of expertise to produce good results. You would struggle to create a professional looking finish with a hire shop sander. We can actually use up to 6 different machines for just one single job, and none of these are available for hire locally. In fact we are often called by people to resurrect a floor after someone has attempted to do it themselves with a hire centre sander.
Please don't think you will get the hard sell from a direct salesman type who is working on a commission-only basis. We know from the feedback we have received from customers that our Surveyor has never used any pressure tactics during his visit. He will merely be there to assess the situation and price-up the job, however - he IS authorised to take a deposit for an order to go ahead if a customer wishes.
