Floor refinishing sequence

Post by Jim W » Wed Feb 07, 2018 8:22 am

We plan to have wall to wall carpet torn up and the wood floors beneath refinished. We will also be painting the walls and ceilings. Should we paint before refinishing the floors, or do the floors first and then paint?

I would do the floors last, that way any spills or spatter or ladder scuffs won't damage your fresh floor.

Invariably, there will be some baseboard damage during the floor finishing, don't worry about it, you can easily touch this up afterward.

I agree, I alway do the painting before any flooring if I have the choice.
