Ideas & Inspiration from Gurnee Flooring & Carpet Contractors


Gurnee Wood Floor Refinishing

About 40 miles north of downtown Chicago, Illinois, sits the village of Gurnee, most popularly known as the location of the Six Flags Great America theme park and the formidable Gurnee Mills Mall. Drawing upwards of 26 million visitors annually, this village of approximately 31,000 residents offers a variety of benefits including two distinct elementary school districts, a more affordable cost of living when compared to its neighbor to the south, and larger homes and lots, including a number of golf course homes.

With an even real estate market and access to mass transit systems in nearby Waukegan, Grayslake, and Libertyville, Gurnee is a popular spot for metro commuters as well as families looking for a quieter way of life that still doesn’t skimp on entertainment. Gurnee has a median home listing price of $269,000 as of 2016 and a number of exclusive, estate-style neighborhoods. However, sellers are not only competing within the town, but must stand out in the vast metropolitan Chicago market. That is why presentation and maintenance, including refinishing wood floors, is so important for both the aesthetic value of your home as well as its value and salability on the market.

Local Cost for Wood Floor Refinishing

Gurnee is part of the Chicagoland metropolitan area, with many local contractors serving homes within and around the city proper. As a result, most contractors serving Gurnee are located in or near Chicago, and most project prices reported for Gurnee homes are lumped together with others in metropolitan Chicago.

The average cost paid by these Illinois homeowners for a wood floor refinishing project that covers an area of about 300 square feet is $1,531, which is only a few dollars off of the national average of $1,552. Likewise, most Chicagoland homeowners reported paying between $1,010 and $2,100 for a wood floor refinishing project compared to a range of $1,000 to $2,137 nationally. As is evident through these prices, Gurnee—and Chicago—are right on par with national averages when it comes to refinishing, recoating, and sometimes repairing floors.

Licensing and Qualifications Needed 

The State of Illinois only requires roofing contractors to hold a license or certification to work. The Village of Gurnee further requires electricians, plumbers, and HVAC techs to obtain a local license. Flooring contractors do not fall into any of those categories. Homeowners should instead consult reviews, use word-of-mouth recommendations, and otherwise research any contractor they choose to refinish their wood floors in a Gurnee home.

Other Projects to Consider 

Refinishing the wood floors in your home helps to make an impression on buyers and guests alike by adding shine and finish to a room. However, there are other associated projects that you may want to consider:

  • Wood Floor Repair
    In addition to refinishing, consider repairing, replacing, or resetting some of the boards of your wood floor. This will help add to the aesthetic effect of the floor without costing too much. This is also a great way to get rid of annoying floor creaks and groans, particularly in the older homes around the Gurnee golf communities that were built around the 1970s.
  • Wood Floor Recoating
    Newer wood floors may not need a complete refinishing job to look good. Instead, simply adding on an additional layer of polyurethane sealant to the top is enough to refresh that extra shine with a much lower price tag. This is a common project involved in prepping Coventry Estates and Steeple Point homes before a sale.

Prominent Neighborhoods in Gurnee, IL

With a population of just over 31,000 people as of the 2010 census, Gurnee neighborhoods are not nearly as diverse as those Chicago because the area is largely suburban. However, there are a few key areas within the village's boundaries that are worth noting:

Gurnee Golf Communities

Gurnee, IL is home to two large golf courses: HeatherRidge to the south and Bittersweet to the east. Homes surrounding both of these golf courses offer homeowners premium lots and land and include communities such as Bittersweet Woods and HeatherRidge, which offer additional amenities such as a clubhouse and private security. Expect to find well-kept wood floors in houses here, as well as in the condominiums and townhouses that dot the HeatherRidge landscape.

Gurnee Estate Homes

In the northern part of the village, just east of the Gurnee Mills Mall, several estate-style homes sit in more exclusive neighborhoods. These communities include The Estates at Churchill Hunt, Coventry Estates, and Steeple Point. Many of these homes were built in the late 1990s through the early 2010s by individual developers. They follow one of a few floor plans, sit on on large wooded lots, and differentiate from one another through custom features and creative uses of exotic woods and parquet designs in their flooring.
