What to expect before

Written estimate

Some estimates are itemized and some are a comprehensive paragraph of the scope of work with a total. Just remember that estimates are just that - estimates. All things that are promised should be included in the final contract to you.

Cost of job

This will vary depending on the products used and the job that will be done. Research your needs first and educate yourself on the products and then get quotes from a couple of contractors that use those products.


Warranties and guarantees should always be included in the final contract. All questions regarding what to expect should be discussed in detail between the customer and contractor to avoid discrepancies.

What to expect during

Work hours/expected length of time in the home

This should be discussed in the "Expectations" portion of the bid. Make sure you feel educated about the process of sanding and finishing your floors and the products that will be used. Feel comfortable and confident about the investment you are making.

Potential delays

If you are unable to determine what products are currently on your floors, it could lengthen the sanding process. We continually stress the importance of being educated on the life of your floors. Also, temperature and relative humidity can play a role in the dry times of the product.

Potential noise

If Oregon Custom Flooring INC is doing any demolition or remodeling there will be load noises associated with the scope of work being performed.


What to expect after

When can I walk across the floors again?

Your floor can be walked on with stocking feet in 3-4 hours and furniture can be placed back on the floor (not dragged) in 48 hours. Area rugs can be put down in one week when the grout is fully cured.

How much clean-up will be needed?

Clean-up is extremely minimal. Since the installation of tile is nearly dust-free, virtually all the airborne dust generated during the process is eliminated, so there is no wasted time spent hanging and taking down plastic in the home. In addition, everything must be picked up and cleaned before the grouting portion, so you are not left with any mess in your home.

What kind of maintenance is required after the process?

This depends on the amount of traffic you have in your home. If you have children and pets, you will want to clean more regularly. We recommend dusting your floors with a dust mop daily or every other day. Regularly clean floors with a waterborne, non-toxic formula that is specifically formulated for hardwood floors. The Bona Premium Hardwood Floor Mop is an easy and effective tool to start with!
