Ideas & Inspiration from Eugene Flooring & Carpet Contractors

Eugene Wood Floor Refinishing

Nestled along the I-5 corridor of Oregon’s west side is the artistic and beautiful city of Eugene with a population of about 156,000 residents. This number continually increases each year, which can be seen in the form of new developments and subdivisions popping up throughout the area. It has a Mediterranean-like climate with cool summers and wet winters. Snowfall is common, but it rarely accumulates. Refinishing hardwood floors helps keep homes looking like new so they can be competitive in the Eugene real estate market and stand up to the excess moisture that’s a hallmark of this region.

Wood floor refinishing is a moderately large project in terms of how it limits the usage of a house while it’s being completed and one that homeowners need to plan to undertake every 10 to 20 years. The finish protects the wood from damage, moisture, and other elements to ensure that the floorboards withstand the test of time. The project involves using a sander to remove all of the existing layers of finish and then coating the floors with new finish. While this is a lot of work and a long process, it is much cheaper and less time consuming than replacing hardwood floors.

Costs for Wood Floor Refinishing

On average, homeowners nationwide spend between $2,656 and $2,960 to refinish 800 square feet of floor space in a home. The price goes up and down depending on how much floor space needs to be covered. If the home has wooden stairs, homeowners can expect to pay between $25 to $45 per stair to refinish those, too. The table below breaks down the costs of a wood floor refinishing project in Eugene.

If the existing finish is not in bad condition, it may be possible to simply remove the top layer and apply a new coat of finish. This process is known as padding and recoating, and it costs significantly less at $1,000 to $1,400 for 800 square feet. Homeowners can also cut costs by taking on the project themselves. The process is time consuming but not typically difficult, although particular care needs to be taken to remove the old finish and sand evenly to prevent uneven application of the new finish.

Licensing and Qualifications

Anyone working on a construction or home improvement project for compensation in the state of Oregon must have a license. The only exception is for handymen who perform projects that cost less than $1,000. However, in order to advertise a business, a license is necessary. Contractors must be bonded and insured before applying for a license. The Oregon Construction Contractors Board is in charge of issuing licenses.

The amount on the insurance policy that an Oregon contractor must carry depends on his or her license classification or endorsement. Both commercial and residential specialty and general contractors may perform floor refinishing projects, and they must carry general liability policies worth $500,000 or $300,000, respectively. Be sure to verify that the contractor has a current insurance policy to ensure protection against accidents or damages during the course of the refinishing project.

Other Projects for a Eugene Home

One of the easiest projects to take on when refinishing the wood flooring in a home is replacing the baseboards around the wall where it meets the floor. This is especially wise in high-traffic areas where the baseboards are more likely to be scuffed or damaged. Materials are inexpensive for the project, and because the furniture is already removed from the room for the refinishing project, removing the old and installing the new baseboards is simple.

Eugene Neighborhoods and Area Info

Eugene is a bustling paradise for people who enjoy creativity and access to outdoor activities. The town is broken up into 23 different neighborhoods, and each one has its own unique personality. The neighborhoods are just as diverse as the population living in the city. They range in size, with some being more prominent than others.

  • West University - As the name suggests, this community is located just west of the University of Oregon, which makes it a popular neighborhood for students, recent graduates, and young adults. Most of the people living in this area rent the homes instead of own them. It has one city park and a public safety station staffed by the police department to ensure the area remains protected.
  • Friendly – Located on the south side of Eugene is the large neighborhood of Friendly. It has 7,000 residents and lots of outdoor space. The neighborhood has been around for several generations, which is noted by the number of historic buildings and landmarks. Popular spots in Friendly are Madison Meadow and Amazon Park. Wood floors are entirely common in the older homes around Friendly.
  • Jefferson Westside - The neighborhood of Jefferson Westside was once named "neighborhood of the year." It is cyclist- and walker-friendly, and it has several amenities that encourage people to get outdoors. It is also home to the fairgrounds and Monroe Park. Additionally, the neighborhood prides itself on being a leader in actively finding ways to reduce negative impacts on the environment.
