Reviews of Canton Hardwood Floor Refinishers

Project: Refinish Wood Flooring
North Canton, OH w

They are easy to work with and did a GREAT job! My old hardwood floors were under carpet for years and badly worn and a terrible orange color when I ripped the carpet out. Now they look brand new!

 
Project: Refinish Wood Flooring
Beachwood, OH w

We are extremely pleased with the work. They were easy to work with. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but best at answering questions and explaining their bid. Delivered exactly as promised, exactly on time, remaining extremely clean throughout.

Olmsted Falls, OH w

Nice people, did a very good job -- surprised at how clean and dust free they were able to keep the house during refinishing. Machine problems caused them to be a day late to their promised schedule.

Ideas & Inspiration from Canton Flooring & Carpet Contractors


Wood Floor Refinishing in Canton

Canton, Ohio, is located about 20 miles south of Akron and is the county seat of Stark County. It has a population of about 72,000 people, but that number has been on the decline in recent years. With a history that dates back to the early 1800s, residents can find a blend of historic and older homes along with new construction throughout the city. Canton has cold temperatures in the winter, but it does not receive much snow. Spring and summer are typically hot and humid, while fall tends to be very dry. Such climate extremes can have an effect on hardwood floors, which are susceptible to moisture permeation, meaning it is important to maintain them properly to ensure that they last a lifetime.

Hardwood floors can last for several generations as long as they have the right care. Refinishing the wood floors every 10 to 20 years ensures that the floors remain in good condition and have the protection they need to stand up to heavy traffic, temperature changes, and shifting humidity levels. The process for refinishing floors involves sanding the finish off of the floor all the way to the wood planks and then applying a new topcoat in several layers. The process can take up to two weeks to complete to ensure adequate drying.

Local Project Costs for Wood Floor Refinishing

The exact cost for wood floor refinishing depends on the the type of floors, how large the area is, and the location. The average cost for this project is slightly higher in Canton than the national average. The table below shows the price differences per square foot as well as the total cost for one room that has 300 square feet of floor space. Homeowners can estimate average costs for the project by determining the square footage of their home.

Canton, Ohio

National Average

Cost Per Square Foot

$4.03 - $5.10

$3.32 - $3.70

Cost for One Room

$1,209 - $1,530

$996 - $1,110

Another factor that affects the cost of wood floor refinishing is the type of wood used for the flooring. Exotic woods are often more sensitive to environmental changes and can be harder to work with; thus, contractors often charge more to work with these materials. Additionally, these woods can produce harmful dust that requires extra care when sanding.

With routine maintenance, homeowners may never need to refinish their floors. Instead, they can pad and recoat the floors to keep them in good condition, although this process is not as thorough as the full refinishing completed by a professional. This involves lightly sanding the finish from the top of the floor and then applying a new topcoat. Homeowners can rent sanders to complete the project on their own and save a bit of money.

Licensing and Qualifications

The state of Ohio does not require general contractors to carry a license; electricians, HVAC technicians, plumbers, hydronics technicians, and refrigeration technicians, though, are required to obtain statewide licensing. However, the city of Canton, Ohio, does require all contractors to have a license if they complete home improvement or remodeling projects. Licenses are obtained from the City of Canton Building Department. Likewise, salesmen who are responsible for selling home improvement work are required to have a license in Canton. With a license, contractors are required to undergo a background check as well as carry a bond. This provides a high level of professionalism and better protection for the homeowner.

Licensed contractors in Ohio are also required to carry liability insurance policies worth a minimum of $500,000. While this does not apply to unlicensed general contractors around the state, it is still important to search for a contractor who carries liability insurance. This ensures that a homeowner is protected in the event of an accident or damages caused during the course of the refinishing project. Homeowners can verify if a contractor has a current license by looking up the contractor or contracting company’s information on the Ohio Construction Industry Licensing Board’s official website.

Other Projects to Consider

Homeowners can save time and money on their home improvement projects by completing more than one at once. The process of refinishing wood floors requires removing all furniture from the room. At this time, homeowners can choose to make repairs to any damage in the walls, add a fresh coat of paint, remove wallpaper, or even take down an old popcorn ceiling. Likewise, it is a good opportunity to replace baseboards, which can get damaged over time, so they match the refreshed flooring.
