Floor Refinishing

Floor Sanding System

Sanding Method:
Dust Barriers

A riser is the vertical surface between steps.In many cases, risers are painted and do not need to be refinished. If the risers are not painted, the risers and steps will need to be refinished.

Sanding System Removes:
90.0% of the dust

This is a measure of how efficient the sanding system is at removing the dust created from sanding the floors from the air before it is vented into your house. The closer this number is to 100%, the less dust is generated and the less cleanup will be required after your floors have been sanded.

Waste Factor:
7.0% of materials cost

In pricing jobs, flooring companies typically calculate the total square footage to be covered and then add a waste factor to this total. The waste factor covers the additional material required when flooring has to be cut down to fit to the size and shape of the floor. This factor is applied like a sales tax to your job, e.g. a 7% waste factor will increase your job cost by 7% and can have a significant impact on the price of the job. Some companies apply the factor only to materials while others apply it to the entire installed price. Prices listed above do not include the waste factor.
