"Only gripe with the service was twice I was told the crew would arrive at a certain time, and both times they were at least 60 minutes late. I was not living in the house and had a 40 minute drive to get there. The laminate floor and new carpet helped the house sell quickly. "

Ideas & Inspiration from Crystal Lake Flooring & Carpet Contractors


Crystal Lake Wood Floor Refinishing

As a suburb of Chicago, Crystal Lake offers a safe, quiet refuge for families and individuals who want easy access to the Windy City without all the ins and outs of city life. With a low crime rate, excellent schools, and easy access to the best cultural amenities the Chicago area has to offer, Crystal Lake is an oasis outside of the urban jungle. Deriving its name from a small lake just about a mile away from the city’s quaint old-fashioned downtown, Crystal Lake offers plenty of opportunities for its residents to enjoy natural beauty while the weather isn’t too terribly cold and snowy.

Housing prices tend to be high in this suburb, which matches with its high median annual household income of more than $75,000. Refinishing the hardwood floors in a Crystal Lake home can certainly add value to the property, making it more appealing for prospective buyers or for the renters who pay the city’s relatively high monthly rental fees. Thanks to its convenient location at the confluence of several state highways that lead to Interstate 90, Crystal Lake is well placed for you to get the best deal possible on your wood floor refinishing project.

Wood Floor Refinishing Budget

It should be easy to find a professional to come to your home in Crystal Lake and provide you a quote for hardwood flooring refinishing. You will find some reputable flooring businesses in Crystal Lake itself, though you may want to extend your search to the greater Chicago area to find the best fit for your situation. Reported prices for this home improvement service in metro Chicago are on par with the national average.

Across the country, people pay an average of $970 to $1,250 per 300 square feet of space. Use this chart below to help evaluate the quotes you get from flooring contractors. Remember that the more floor space you have to work on, the higher your cost is likely to be.

Because this is not the most complicated home improvement project and it does not require any particularly dangerous equipment, you may want to try refinishing your wood floor as a DIY project. After doing the proper research and obtaining the right equipment, you may be able to do a good job as long as you’re careful to remove all traces of the old finish on the floors and sand evenly. At the very least, you may be able to handle prep tasks such as sanding in order to save money on the total cost of professional service.

Contractor Licensure Requirements

Unlike most states, Illinois doesn’t license construction contractors, so you may not need to worry about finding a flooring professional who’s properly licensed to refinish your hardwood floors. While Cook County, which includes Chicago proper, has some rules about contractor registration, McHenry County, which is Crystal Lake’s county, does not.

This does not mean you’re out of luck when it comes to using a critical process to hire a flooring professional for your refinishing project. You can rely on private-sector sources such as online reviews or even word-of-mouth recommendations to find the right professional. In addition, it’s always important to find a professional who carries liability insurance regardless of whether or not he or she is licensed; this protects you against being responsible for covering the cost of damages or an accident that may occur during the course of the refinishing project.

Other Projects to Consider

While you’re undertaking the wood floor refinishing project, it may make sense to tackle some other home improvement projects as well. Your flooring contractor may have experience refinishing other types of wood such as built-in shelving or molding and baseboards. You may also be able to get a discount on other types of flooring repair or replacement, meaning you can give your whole house a little makeover all at once. Depending on the condition of your flooring, you may need to have a few boards replaced if they’re very worn out or have started cracking. During the course of this project is also the ideal time to paint the walls a different color, too. All the furniture will be tucked away in a different room, which lessens the amount of prep work you need to complete before brushing on a new color.
