Great finish for the money. &nbsp;Same 5 gallons today is $250 plus.<br/><br/>The "new" 250 VOC is impossible to get to flow on and in horribly inconsistent. &nbsp;I am returning the remaining and getting my money back on all that I bought.<br/>&nbsp;<br/>So, &nbsp;do not move to CA especially in leu of Moobeam's new 20 cents a gal gas boost come Jan 1 '15 to our already highest in the country gas prices.<br/>&nbsp; Mon, 23 Jun 2014 03:33:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-average-cost-to-refinish-hardwood-floors-for-about-800sq-ft/427769/ 2014-06-23T03:33:00Z Great answer Mr. Bart!

Welcome to Zillow and thumb to you :) Wed, 30 Apr 2014 18:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-average-cost-to-refinish-hardwood-floors-for-about-800sq-ft/427769/ 2014-04-30T18:30:00Z In North Carolina to have ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-average-cost-to-refinish-hardwood-floors-for-about-800sq-ft/427769/ In North Carolina to have your floors refinished properly which means have them sanded with 2 or 3 different grits, have the shoe mold removed and replaced, have the floors stained or sealed (for natural) and have them finished with 3 coats of polyurethane or waterborne floor finish and use low dust protocols in both cases, the price should be between $3.75-$4.00 per sq foot for oil based and between $4.00-$4.50 for waterborne. Oil based should take 4 days and waterbased 2-2.5 days depending on sqaure footage. <br/><br/>The operator and quality of the products do matter a lot! With that said you can find hacks on Craigslist to it for $2.50 but you will have wear through, color loss, may not get your three coats and or have peeling and have to re-do it anyway. The products and sandpaper alone cost almost $1.75 per sqaure foot if you use the good stuff so how can someone do it for $2? <br/><br/>Hardwood Doctor <br/> Wed, 30 Apr 2014 18:17:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-the-average-cost-to-refinish-hardwood-floors-for-about-800sq-ft/427769/ 2014-04-30T18:17:00Z Beverly Hills ?

You will need to remove all furniture. If you have Swedish finish applied you will need to vacate the property for a few days. The end result is gorgeous and durable.
