    Default Sanding and varnishing floorboards.

    drywallschool.com

    got asked for an estimate to sand and varnish floorboards which have been coverd with carpet or lino. just wondering what sort of price to give? due to needing to hire a proper drum floor sander and edging sander to get the boards decently smooth and nicely finished.

    taking into concideration that nails will probably have to be sunk before sanding and maybe other little bits (usually the time consuming bits)

    would i be better of giving a price or working hourly rates? as not sure how much work/time would have to go into getting the floor sanded properly.

    You might be better with an hourly rate on this one, bit like stripping paper you never know what you might be in for.
