"Chuck and his team were fantastic! My refinished wood floors look gorgeous. They were exceptionally helpful and accommodating. Chuck recommended a stain that looks natural and polished but hides old pets stains and other imperfections beautifully. I highly recommend Woodchucks Flooring!"

"I am grateful that I found Roque and his crew. He refinished the floors of the entire downstairs of my new home. He was very kind, gave great advice, and was extremely accommodating to my tight schedule. He did top notch work at a very affordable price. He really loves what he does. I asked him for a stack of business cards afterwards because I want to recommend him to everyone I know who wants to install or refinish their floors. I can’t say enough good things about his work!"

Ideas & Inspiration from East Greenbush Flooring & Carpet Contractors

East Greenbush Wood Floor Refinishing

East Greenbush is a small town with about 16,000 residents, and the population sees only minor fluctuations from year to year with very little growth, resulting in a somewhat stable housing market where residents old and young can really get to know their neighbors. The climate in East Greenbush includes cold winters and mild summers, with temperatures that usually stay in the low to mid 80s. Residents can expect to deal with up to 40 inches of snow each year, however. Cold temperatures and snow can affect the condition of the wood flooring that is common around this town, so it is important to refinish them to ensure they last as long as the historic and new houses.

It is important for homeowners to refinish their wood flooring in order to protect the wood and to protect the overall value of the buildings they call home. The finish can wear out quickly if there is a lot of traffic on the floor, extreme environmental changes, or exposure to differing levels of precipitation during spring rains and winter snows. While it might seem like an expensive project to take on, refinishing a wood floor is much cheaper than replacing the floor and is not required very frequently, only about every 10 to 20 years.

Project Costs for Floor Refinishing

Wood floor refinishing is a very labor intensive project that limits your use of rooms in your home while the work is underway. Thus, the total project cost is ultimately determined by how large of a space needs to be refinished. On average, the cost is $3.32 to $3.71 per square foot around the country, but in East Greenbush the cost is slightly higher at $3.62 to $4.65 per square foot. The table below compares the total project cost for an 800-square-foot space.

Pad and recoat work involves only removing the top layer of finish rather than going all the way to the wood. This makes it an easier and much less expensive project. It is one that homeowners should consider if their floors are in relatively good shape.

Likewise, homeowners can save money by taking the do-it-yourself route. Labor is the most expensive part of the entire project and can run as high as $2,249.74 to $2,960.36 of the total cost in East Greenbush. However, homeowners will have to factor in the cost of renting equipment and purchasing supplies should they choose to attempt DIY work.

Licensing and Qualifications

New York does not license home improvement contractors statewide, and only a handful of cities require licenses for these contractors. Rensselaer County, where East Greenbush is located, is not one of them. Therefore, contractors working in East Greenbush for floor refinishing are not required to obtain a license. However, depending on the scope of the project, the contractor may need to apply for a permit from the Town of East Greenbush Building Department before beginning the project.

Other Home Projects to Consider

Adding a fresh coat of paint to the room is a popular project to take on when refinishing wood flooring. This is especially smart if the color of the floor is changing with ate. The paint will complement the flooring and make it look like new. Completing the project concurrently also saves time because all of the furniture needs to be removed from the room for the refinishing project.

East Greenbush Area Information

East Greenbush is a small suburb that is south of the capital city of Albany. It is close enough for a rather easy commute to the city, but far enough away to retreat to peace and quiet. The town itself is divided into two prominent communities of Town Center and Best/Luther. It has a low median housing cost and a high median income cost, making it an attractive suburb for people who work in Albany. Outside of the town, there are a few other communities nearby that people from East Greenbush frequent or consider living in as well.

  • Sand Lake - This town sits northeast of East Greenbush. It is a small and quiet place made up of several hamlets and subdivisions. One of the biggest attractions of this town is Crystal Lake, which draws fishermen and people who enjoy exploring the great outdoors.
  • Rensselaer - This town has a history that dates back to the early 19th century. Residents will find a mix of historic homes and new construction. One of the main features of this suburb is the Amtrak station, which heads straight into Albany. This makes for a fast and easy commute for people who like small-town life but must work in the city.
