Reviews of Denver Hardwood Floor Refinishers

Project: Refinish Wood Flooring
Edgewater, CO

They really know their stuff.

Project: Refinish Wood Flooring
Denver, CO

I had a oak floor that was so damaged (water damage, animal stains, dark marks) I thought the only solution was to seal it with Kilz and cover the floor with carpet. Caldera 7 Flooring brought the hardwood back to life made and made it look like a 10!

Denver Wood Floor Refinishing

Boasting stunning views, spectacular outdoor recreation and approximately 300 sunny days every year, Denver, Colorado, has a lot to offer its residents. Nestled approximately 12 miles from the foothills of the famed Rocky Mountains, this high-altitude city boasts panoramic mountain views and a diverse selection of neighborhoods for its population of 3 million.

Every home in the Denver metropolitan area relies on its flooring for lounging, dancing, walking, and more. Upgrading and refinishing wood floors add beauty and value to the home, while allowing homeowners to express their design preferences. Before trying to figure out the cost of a flooring project, take the size and scope of the work into account. For optimal planning, contact an experienced flooring professional for a detailed estimate.

Local Cost Information

The larger the square footage and the more exotic the wood, the higher the price is that’s associated with refinishing wood floors. Other price-affecting factors include the following:

  • Condition of the existing floors/ the amount of preparation and repair work needed
  • Refinishing stairs (this costs an average of $25 to $45 for each step)
  • Extras needed to finish the job, including the topcoat and trim
  • Labor (often charged as a flat rate or hourly fee)

Denver homeowners have many different options when it comes to sprucing up their wood floors. Repairing and refinishing the floor is the most budget-friendly option. For an at-a-glance look at some of the area's average prices for common wood flooring projects, check out the table below.

Refinishing is a much more cost-effective choice when compared to a complete replacement. Denver's average prices for wood flooring projects hover close to (or slightly below) the national average. Before committing to the project, ask for an estimate from a local flooring company for a more exact picture of the budget for each individual project.

Repairing and Refinishing Wood Floors

In many instances, homeowners may need to have a floor repaired before having it refinished. Repairs can address many common problems, including scratches, water damage, cracks, splits, and squeaks, that affect the look of the refinished floor if they’re not fixed beforehand. Denver homeowners typically pay $200 to $3,000 for repairs, depending on the size and scope of the job. Common repairs include tasks such as:

  • Fixing or replacing rotted or damaged floor joists
  • Filling cracks or gouges with wood filler
  • Buffing scratches out with fine steel wool or lightweight sandpaper
  • Inserting screws or shims to stop a squeaking floor
  • Replacing warped planks

Refinishing a wood floor is a cost-effective way to revitalize an entire room or home. In Denver, most homeowners spend $600 to $3,006, depending on the size of the room and materials needed to accomplish the work.

Necessary Licensing and Qualifications

Flooring contractors aren't required to be licensed in the State of Colorado, Larimer County, or the City of Denver. Some companies or contractors may pursue voluntary certification to demonstrate their expertise and competence. Some of the professional organizations that offer certifications include:

  • National Wood Flooring Association
  • Certified Floorcovering Installers Association
  • National Institute of Certified Floorcovering Inspectors

Homeowners who hire a flooring company should make sure the company or contractors have current insurance coverage. General liability insurance protects homeowners from the costs of accidents or damages that occur during the project.

Other Projects to Consider 

Sometimes, refinishing the floor just won't provide the desired look. Homeowners who want to change the layout of the room or switch to planks with a different length and width may prefer installing a new floor. Two common choices include installing wood laminate and replacing the hardwood floor. When big changes like these aren’t desired, other projects to consider include adding decorative options such as changing the trim or the baseboards. Alternatively, homeowners can warm things up by adding a radiant heating system to the room. This heating system goes under the flooring to keep the temperatures even and prevent cold feet.

Popular Denver Neighborhoods

The city contains a lively array of neighborhoods, each offering its own amenities and attractions. From the urban lofts of downtown to the upscale homes in Cherry Creek, Denver residents can choose from a variety of nooks and crannies to call home. Some of the "Mile High City's" most popular neighborhoods include:

Bonnie Brae- Known by some locals as the best neighborhood in the city, Bonnie Brae offers proximity to all the action along with a serene setting. It's home to a vibrant array of shops in addition to the charming design that's similar to a village in Scotland, with its circular park and curving streets. Home styles range from stately English Tudors to sweet Cape Cods.

Cherry Creek- Upscale shopping and pedestrian-friendly layout make Cherry Creek a favorite neighborhood among everyone ranging from nature-enthusiasts who love the access to the Cherry Creek recreational path, to hipsters who love the boutiques and galleries. Home styles include luxurious townhomes and swanky bungalows.

Downtown- With its vibrant combination of arts and culture, entertainment and recreation, restaurants and shops, downtown Denver is a mecca for anyone who wants to live in the center of all the city's action. From loft-style condos to luxurious high-rise apartments, residents of Denver's downtown can choose from many housing options, most of which are in walking distance to some of the city's best venues. Downtown contains several neighborhoods, including Lo-Do, Golden Triangle, and City Park.
