The Floors! Finally!

The plan was to find someone who could just repair the areas that were remaining from the earlier work that was done (wall and floor heater removed), which I did, but on the start day he came in saying it really bothered him to do these areas that are spread around the house without ‘really’ doing it right. That since things were slow, and they had the time and the house was small, he would give me a good deal to just do the whole thing.

So it came down to repair areas only or pay an additional $500 to have the whole house done which would include all repairs including filling holes, replacing damaged planks, repairing scratches, etc., EVERYWHERE but the inside of the closets. AND…he can do it while I live there.

Just a Little Wood?

Patching the Original Hardwood Floors

Is it not possible to do just some small area wood repair? I need to fill in where the wall and floor heater were removed. So far I have been told it will require me to refinish if not those areas, then might as well do the whole house. This is sad to me since: a) the floors are beautiful, b) its pretty expensive ($2K+), c) it’s a huge hassel (need to move out, mass dust created and damage/touch up required to newly painted baseboards and walls, and d) it’s a needed repair for me to continue on the progress of the kitchen penninsula.
