Ideas & Inspiration from Staten Island Flooring & Carpet Contractors

Staten Island Wood Floor Refinishing

Known as "the forgotten borough," Staten Island is the southernmost point of both the city and state of New York. Marked by single- and multi-family semi-detached houses rather than commanding apartment buildings, Staten Island stands out for its distinct suburban and residential vibe that has long made it a haven for families and city workers looking to escape the concrete jungle of Manhattan. However, with the renaissance of Brooklyn driving up real estate prices in all the outer boroughs, Staten Island is beginning its own brand of gentrification that has most notably included massive development along its north shore.

Now more than ever, Staten Island real estate is hot, with many homeowners easily getting their asking price on well-maintained homes and even some bidding wars breaking out. Maintaining or selling your Staten Island home, including refinishing the wood floors, is essential in order to cash in on this renewed market interest.

Local Cost Info for Wood Floor Refinishing

Like many homes in the Northeast, many residences in Staten Island include wood floors, so refinishing them is a common construction and contracting job. While the national average for such a project is $1,552 for 300 square feet of space, in Staten Island, the average job costs $1,511, with most homeowners paying between $967 and $2,060. However, these figures are not for Staten Island alone, but for the whole of NYC, including more expensive boroughs and larger homes.

Licensing and Qualifications Needed 

Because it is part of New York City, contractors working in Staten Island are required to be licensed by the city in order to perform any construction, repair, or remodeling work. In addition, the City of New York also often requires permits for any substantial remodel or construction, including flooring work, especially in historic buildings or districts. Staten Island homeowners should check with their contractor in regards to the need for these permits and can check on the status of any contractor's license at the City's website.

Other Projects to Consider 

In addition to refinishing the wood floor of your home, it may be necessary to repair parts of it as well, particularly if your home is old or has been subjected to extreme damage such as fire or flooding. Take note of any especially worn areas and be sure to ask your contractor about the cost and benefits of spot-based repair. In extreme cases, however, a complete wood floor replacement may be needed.

It also may be possible to save money on a refinishing project by doing less, particularly in newer homes or those with minimal foot traffic. Instead of completely refinishing these floors, homeowners may be able to save money by just recoating them with polyurethane.

Prominent Neighborhoods in Staten Island

The "mere" 473,000 residents of Staten Island make this the least-populated New York City borough, although it is the third largest, encompassing 58 square miles just southwest of Manhattan. While Staten Island is known for its free ferry service to the island, its lack of subway access means most Staten Island residents commute by car, and MTA bus service and the Staten Island railroad are also available.

Like most of New York, the neighborhoods of Staten Island are as old as the city itself, with some dating back to the 17th century. However, the more isolated nature of this borough has led to less reinvention compared to Brooklyn or the Bronx. As such, most locals simply divide Staten Island geographically, noting the special communities or living styles in each of the island's four quadrants:

  • North Shore: This area, which generally includes neighborhoods north of the Staten Island Expressway, is a hotbed of development thanks to its easy access to Manhattan. The most urban part of Staten Island, North Shore communities such as St. George, Port Richmond, and Tomkinsville are experiencing a rapid sequence of new builds, including high-rise apartments and condos along with affordable housing options.
  • South Shore: A very suburban area, the South Shore was originally settled by the French and Dutch Huguenots in the 17th century. It then experienced a rapid building phase in the 1960s and 1970s. Homes in this area include stately historical mansions along with a variety of detached and semi-detached homes for one or more families.
  • East Shore: Though some people include the East Shore as part of the South Shore neighborhood group, this area along lower New York Bay is notable for its post-WWII homes and the FDR Boardwalk, the fourth-longest boardwalk in the world. Homes are suburban in character, built on what used to be farmland.
  • West Shore: Only one residential area, Travis, is on the West Shore. The rest of this part of the island is dedicated to industrial parks.
