Question

I am taking bids to strip and refinish a 10,000 sq. ft. facility. After stripping, I would like 4 coats of finish applied. How much per sq. ft. should I expect to pay? And, how much to do a scrub and recoat?


Answer

In metro Oklahoma I would expect to see a range of $.25-$.38 cents a square foot on a strip and 4 coats of finish for 10,000 sq. ft. The price range would need to take into consideration: access, buildup, neglected edge work, layout and number of small rooms. In addition, it could be higher if moving considerable furniture. If your facility is medical/professional, then you will likely have smaller rooms. You will probably find a scrub and top coat (2 coats) at about 60% of the initial strip price.
