I know there's a flooring forum too, but it doesn't appear very busy. We gutted and remodeled our kitchen this past year and instead of being int he ABB group, we're in the ABF (flooring!) category.
We have a huge amount of old maple flooring we are going to put down in our kitchen and the rest of our downstairs. Half of it already has old oak flooring, but because we took down walls I want everything to be one flooring type so we're are going over the top of that as well.
Having never had floors refinished, I am wondering about anyone's experiences. Are we pretty much going to have to move out for a few days while they do the coats of poly? My husband talked to the guy to get a price, but of course, doesn't think about the practical stuff. LOL We have an 8 year old and a 5 month old so either way it's going to be a PITA. The guy said he could do half the downstairs at one time and the other half after, but it's not being able to use the kitchen that will be the trouble so that doesn't solve anything.
