New Flooring Project - Costs seem right?
We are about to add unfinished A1 Select 2 1/4 inch red oak flooring to our house. This will be sanded and finished with 3 coats Red Mohogany stain and a matte finish. We are covering approximately 2200 sq ft at a cost of $12,296 or ~$5.58 per sq ft complete.
Does this price sound about right for this kind of job?
We are also finishing the stairs which currently have a red oak rail with a natural finish. We were wonder what the best option would be to make the railing match the floor color. My understanding is that sanding off the exitisting finish could be a tough approach, was wondering if there were alternatives.
Thanks for you help/advice.
