Sanding Hardwood Floors

Question: I want to get someone to refinish my hardwood floors about 400 sq. ft. How much should I be charged I don't want to get ripped off. And what kind of sander do I need to rent? I really just want the trade to do the sanding part not really the staining and everything.

Answer: It depends somewhat on where you are located. But you should budget $1.50 to $2 a sq. ft. for sanding, they will supply the sanders and sandpaper. That should also include doing the hand work in corners, but will not include stairs. The big box home improvement centers offer this service.
