Ideas & Inspiration from Peoria Flooring & Carpet Contractors

Peoria Wood Floor Refinishing

The Central Illinois city of Peoria is perhaps best known as the home of world headquarters of Caterpillar, Inc. and the largest city along the Illinois River. However, aside from these major landmarks, Peoria is a bustling city of over 115,000 and the oldest European settlement in the entire state of Illinois. For its residents, however, a slow-to-recover housing market that ranked as one of the worst in the nation in 2013 has led to an increased need for differentiation in the market.

For Peoria homeowners, getting the most value out of their property means taking time to invest in updates, renovations, and refinishing that earn dividends on sales. Refinishing wood floors, for example, can add literal shine into your home and brighten a space. So, as the real estate market in Peoria begins to recover, making these small changes with big impacts is one good way to stand out among the crowd.

Local Cost for Wood Floor Refinishing

The average cost to refinish a wood floor across the United States is $1,552, with most homeowners reporting that they paid between $1,000 and $2,137 on average. As of mid-2016, there is not enough available data to generate local numbers for Peoria homeowners.

However, the median household income in Peoria, IL is $52,719, which is just a bit higher than the national median of $52,000. In fact, the city is famously known as a representation of the "average American city" with a cost of living just about 12% below the national average. Therefore, Peoria homeowners can reasonably expect their wood floor refinishing project to fall within or around the average range for the nation.

Licensing and Qualifications Needed 

The state of Illinois only requires roofing contractors to hold a license. Counties and municipalities, including Peoria county and city, follow this lead. However, Peoria homeowners can still check on the reviews of potential flooring contractors before hiring them for a refinishing job. In addition, there are a number of national associations that flooring contractors can join in order to assure homeowners of their skills and abilities. These include the National Wood Flooring Association and the Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA).

Other Projects to Consider 

In addition to refinishing wood floors, add-on projects such as replacing baseboard trim and painting walls are easy ways to brighten up and modernize any room. Because all the furniture needs to be removed from the room where the floor refinishing is taking place, it’s much easier to paint quickly and access all the corners and spots near the floor to put up new baseboards. Putting up fresh crown moldings is another option, as is hanging new drapes or installing new lighting fixtures, which complete the renewed look of the space. Homeowners may also want to look into wood floor repair as part of their refinishing project. Replacing and resetting select boards can help to eliminate annoying floor creaks and groans in older homes.

Prominent Neighborhoods in Peoria, IL

Peoria was first settled in the 17th century by explorers traveling up the Illinois River who established Fort Crevecoeur on its east bank in 1680. Eventually, Peoria incorporated as a village in 1835 and then into a city 15 years later. As such, Peoria buildings (and homes) represent a variety of architectural styles and design periods, with many offering owners the chance to own a piece of the city's extensive history. Older homes abound here, and with them come the unique challenges associated with original, aging wood floors that have specific maintenance requirements.

Historic Districts

A total of 22 sites in Peoria are on the National Register of Historic Places, including three neighborhoods. The first, Grand View Drive, is home to some of the best-known homes in the city. The West Bluff Historic District includes a number of late 19th and early 20th century homes as well as two structures designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Finally, the North Side Historic District, which is geographically in the southeast section of the modern city, includes a number of historical homes that date back to the 19th century.
