Dayna C. in Vancouver, WA

"Marian took a completely botched job by another contractor, and worked miracles, despite the fact that he warned us that so much damage had he ...been done, wasn’t sure he could fix it 100%. Despite this, our beautiful floors, so horribly ruined by another poor “craftsman,” were returned to their original splendor and look better than they ever have. Not only did he do an excellent job for a fair price, but he did it in such a timely manner as to recoup some of the time lost on our project because of the botched floors to begin with. Marian is friendly, professional, honest and a true craftsman. Listen to his advice: he knows what he’s talking about. "

Joyce H. in Vancouver, WA

"I had never met Josh and Dan prior to this remodel. I found them to be professional, personable and very hard-working. They were reasonable their charge. kept us involved to make sure we were getting what we wanted. They remodeled our master bedroom to make a walk-in closet, a bigger bathroom to be handicapped accessible for my husband. They gave us a completion time frame and they absolutely met it. I love both new areas, they did a great job and I would definitely hire them again. I would also highly recommend them to anyone. "

Ideas & Inspiration from Vancouver Flooring & Carpet Contractors

Vancouver Wood Floor Refinishing

Located just across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon, the city of Vancouver, Washington, serves as both a bedroom community for its southern neighbor and an active metropolis unto itself, with a population of over 160,000 according to the 2010 census. Homes in Vancouver sit slightly above the median national cost but are still affordable at an average of $250,000. In addition, a rapid economic recovery and influx of investors to the area has allowed for quick and steady growth throughout southwest Washington following the 2008 recession. In fact, the low housing inventory has even driven up prices, making Vancouver largely a seller's market.

Living in Vancouver has immense benefits, as its climate is mild year-round and its position near the Cascade mountain range offers a variety of outdoor recreation possibilities. Homeowners in the Vancouver area who take care of their properties are likely to see a good return on the market, and this includes taking care of key elements such as wood floors.

Local Cost for Wood Floor Refinishing

Although it’s in Washington, Vancouver is part of the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area. Therefore, average costs for wood floor refinishing in Vancouver include the costs paid by homeowners in Portland as well, since many contractors travel between the two cities/states.

According to real cost reports, most homeowners in metropolitan Portland paid between $1,151 and $2,202 or an an average of $1,633 to have wood floors in a 300-square-foot room refinished. These numbers are slightly above national reports. Across the U.S., homeowners paid an average of $1,552 to refinish their wood floors for that amount of square footage.

Licensing and Qualifications Needed

The State of Washington requires that all contractors working within its borders register with the state through the Department of Labor and Industries. The state recognizes registrations both in general contracting as well as specialty contracting, including wood floor laying and finishing. Registered contractors must pay a fee, which is good for two years, and must also purchase a surety bond worth $12,000 for general contracting and $6,000 for specialty contracting and liability insurance worth a minimum of $250,000.

Vancouver-area homeowners can check on the status of any contractor's license at the state's website, located here

Other Projects to Consider

Refinishing your wood floors is an important home improvement project that helps to refresh and revitalize your space, especially if your floors are old or subject to a lot of wear and showing things like scratches or discoloration. However, in these cases, refinishing is not the only option:

  • Repairing
    In especially worn areas or where a floor is creaking, it may be necessary to repair wood floors, including relaying and replacing boards.
  • Recoating
    Floors in generally good condition may benefit from a simple recoating job that does not require sanding. Instead, floor contractors simply apply a new coat of polyurethane to the floor.
  • Replacing
    In cases of extreme damage or wear throughout the room, completely replacing wood floors may be needed because refinishing will not yield favorable results.

Prominent Neighborhoods in Vancouver, WA

The city of Vancouver includes 66 recognized neighborhood associations that account for over 90 percent of its residents. Representing diverse housing options along with several different cultures and lifestyles, these neighborhoods work directly with their residents as well as Vancouver City Hall in an effort to improve the quality of life for all who call them home. Popular neighborhoods and associations include the following:

  • South Cliff
    Notable for its secluded location at the southwest corner of McLaughlin Heights, South Cliff is full of single-family homes developed from post-WWII temporary housing.

  • Firecrest
    One of the largest neighborhoods in Vancouver, Firecrest is located east of I-205 and includes residential, agricultural, and commercial areas. While most of the homes in Firecrest are single family, there are some large apartment buildings and condos.

  • Countryside Woods
    Located in East Vancouver, Countryside Woods is one of the largest neighborhoods in the city and includes a mixed bag of homes developed throughout the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Most homes are single family and of mixed architectural styles. Many homes are situated on private roads, turns, and cul-de-sacs, offering residents enhanced privacy.

  • Riverview
    Located on the banks of the Columbia River, Riverview homes are often situated on large lots with water views. Typically contemporary, but plagued by narrow streets, houses in Riverview are restricted in height to preserve this view.

Most of the homes in Vancouver are single-family, detached-style houses. Homes in the central areas of the city were generally built in the 1950s to the 1970s, whereas those on the outer parts of town are more likely to be newer builds from the 1990s and early 2000s. Condos and townhomes are less common in this small city, but may be found close to the banks of the Columbia River, offering residents an easier commute into Portland. No matter which era they herald from, most homes in this area feature wood flooring, some of which may be quite old.
