Unfortunately, looking to the internet to get handy tips and tricks may lead you down the wrong path. It can very easily lead you to waste time and money or even cause you to give up in frustration.
Being a floor sanding professional can easily lead you to believe that floor sanding shouldn’t be undertaken by amateurs. And believe me, most professional floor refinishers are not shy in saying it! But they really do believe that, and so did I.
I have seen floors sanded by amateurs many, many times. Let me tell you, I have seen some horrific work.
Just over 2 years ago, I had a friend that wanted to sand his own floors. He was a long distance from me so, lending a hand was out of the question. I spoke with him for no more than 30 mins on the phone, I told him what machines to hire, what to look for while doing the job and methods of using the tools.
I never had any faith that amateurs could do a good job, but what I eventually found, is that after giving people advice on the task of floor sanding, for a mere 30 minutes, gave them
Pareto’s Principle states that roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. I can verify, that rule remains true here.
You see, resanding and refinishing isn’t just about improving the floor. It’s about changing one’s entire house, an ascension on the family lifestyle ladder.
As home improvements go, refinished floors make that big impact like nothing else. They’re unparalleled as an upgrade.
I have seen some of my competitors consistently produce worse work than any DIY job I have seen. Luckily very few pro’s are like this, but how can you know whether the guy you’re hiring is the right one?
I should know, I did both types of jobs for 10 years. Though more than 95% were resands and refinishes, because it was so much more sensible for the homeowner.
Nowadays those same wood-harvested trees are grown through genetically modified seeds, taking years instead of decades to reach maturity. That fast growth speed shows in the lackluster wood that they produce.
With just a couple hundred dollars for equipment rental, more for the materials, and an honest desire to do something meaningful with your hands, I guarantee you could do this job better than any expert. It’s your home, and no one cares about your house as much as you do.
Frankly when you’re paying a fixed-price job, people want to get it done quick and get paid. Not an issue at all when you do it yourself.
And even that looks cheap compared to the $12,000 average my installer buddy charged for fresh installs.
These figures assume your run-of-the-mill, three bedroom, two bath house. Expect to pay proportionally more for extra rooms.
This is exactly why you don’t see real estate agents recommending upgrading the floors prior to a sale – it’s so darn expensive it’s not worth it! But when you do it yourself, all that extra cash go straight into your pocket.
Even if you don’t sell, the cash is still accessible to you. Next time you’re looking to refinance some money, your appraiser is going to give you a higher price for the upgrade due to the improvement.
In my low-cost guide, I’m going to walk you through the entire process of sanding a floor. We go from the very basics prep stages all the way to putting the finishing touches on the floor to give it that extra “wow” factor that woos guests and family members alike.
I am proud to anounce that I have finally, finally, FINALLY produced a video course. I have to admit I did get some emails, telling me that I should do a video course, because people dont want to read about floor sanding they want to watch it! Of course they do.. So I decided to rent a cabin in a farm, and lay a reclaimed oak floor, the roughest of which I have ever seen to be honest, cost me a lot of money too. I rented the sanding machines and I did as a DIY’er at home would do it. The rental place was even limited on abrasives, so I had to find work arounds which I explain in the videos. The videos include…
This eBook is normally valued at $97 . Which I think you will agree is incredible value, for all the benefits you’ll receive. A perfectly smooth, flat finish, a pocket full of cash and most of all, astonished friends and family.
It also covers every kind of finish there is, like hardwax oils, polyurethane and more. Like I said before the book is normally $97…. And if I were to sell all of this information separately, at an in-person event, I could charge $1200+ (which I am currently looking into doing)
Considering I actually do this every day (and thus, know what I am talking about), I could charge a lot more! You can make a lot of money sanding and refinishing floors… and $2500 is reasonable to buy your way into a new career!
However for the time being there is no in-person course and you don’t have to pay $2500 to get everything you need to know on floor sanding, and you’re not going to pay $1200…
You are not going to pay $299 which is what I was originally going to sell this course for. In fact, by ordering today exclusively from this page you’re not even going to pay the normal price of $97…
