How to Find the Best Floor Sander Hire
The importance of caring properly for hardwood floors can't be underestimated. When refinishing, every step of the job can add to or detract from the durability and appearance of the final result. This is why your choice in a floor sander hire is very important.
Flooring Professional or Handyman?
When it comes to your floor sander hire choice, you should factor in experience, reliability and price. A bargain price is not at all cheap if it buys you an inferior job. With all the time and money you're investing in your hardwood floors, the last thing you want is an inept or inexperienced sander doing damage. This damage can potentially cost more to repair than the original sanding!
Sanding is one of the very first steps in refinishing an old hardwood floor. Some floors have multiple coats of sealant on them, and it's important to sand through them all. An easy mistake to make, for an inexperienced sander, is to leave some coating or sealant on the floor. This makes a proper refinishing impossible, and the floor will have to be sanded again once the mistake is discovered, costing you more time and money. Your choice of a floor sander hire should have the experience to avoid this mistake, and also the common mistake of sanding too aggressively and digging into the wood itself.
If your floor sander hire works in a professional flooring crew or on their own, they should be experienced as much as possible. It doesn't matter how they got their experiences but it's how knowledgeable they are about the job that makes the difference.
A professional crew will likely be fully insured, including the sander. If your floor sander hire is independent, ensure that they carry adequate insurance. This will prevent a lawsuit if they are injured on the job, as well as making sure that any injuries are covered and will be treated properly.
Insist on References
You may be hiring a flooring crew, and if so, the sander's references and credentials should be given to you along with references for the entire crew and the contractor. If you notice any missing references or credentials, don't' be shy about asking. You're paying them for a quality job, after all, and you have every right to look out for your own interests.
A floor sander hire isn't a very difficult decision to make if you keep a few common-sense guidelines in mind. Simply remember that experience and knowledge are very important, and that a sander's past work is the best indication of the job he'll perform on your floors.
