An Example of Calculating Costs and How They Vary

cost of floor sanding in Brisbane

Here and there, floor sanding costs related to labour & materials can vary. This old pine floor for example, had borer damage. I would need to source floorboards before the starting day. Without delay (and before offering a quote) I contacted the timber yard about prices. From time to time timber prices move up and down depending on availability. Generally speaking, prices for new Hoop Pine floorboards are $6 to $8 (+GST) per linear metre. Prices will also depend on timber grade.  In any event, at the time, Hoop Pine floorboard prices had soured to $13 (+GST) per metre. This was due to a shortage at the time.

An Example of Calculating Costs for Labour and Materials

This old floor is another example of why prices for materials can vary. To begin with, glue covered the surface. This gums up the sanding belts fast. There were also hundreds of staples hammered down flat. In like manner, the steel staples blunt the sandpaper belts. Depending on the grade of paper, these belts can range in prices between $8.50 to $11 (+GST) each. A floor like this one could chew through 10 to 20 belts in no time. Besides extra materials, further labour costs increase. To sum up, in this case extra labour costs for this floor was $264 including GST.
