Floor sanding and polishing is a great way to really enhance the look of your timber floors, as well as increasing their durability. A well-finished timber floor is stylish and complements any style of home.
Floor sanding and polishing professionals are able to provide a number of services. These include:

When selecting a floor sanding and polishing professional, there are some things that you need to consider. The professional should be licensed and insured. Ask if the work is guaranteed in any way.

Floor sanding cost is generally based on the area of the job, typically quoted per square metre. It will also be influenced by the amount of prep work involved. For example, an existing timber floor with raised nails and splinters is going to require considerably more work than a newly laid timber floor. Also confirm if the quote includes any finish or stain required. Expect prices that range from $28 to $40 per square metre not including stain, which could add $8 to $15 per square metre to the overall cost. These prices are obviously a guide and will vary locally.
