Refinishing a small spot on a hardwood floor
September 25, 2010 3:27 PM Subscribe
We recently moved out of an apartment with hardwood floors. The owner claims there is damage to the floor where we had a desk. He says he needs to "talk to his floor guy" to see how much it will cost to repair, which will then come out of our security deposit. I have no idea how much spot repair runs, and I'd like a general idea so that we can stand our ground in case he comes up with a high estimate.

There was an office chair on that spot, so basically it's a circle on the floor that looks a bit worn - not really major damage. I've googled and found that more or less it's a few dollars a square foot for refinishing. I'm assuming that's for refinishing an entire room, and this is basically a small area, so I'm not really grasping how much that would cost a professional to do. Is there a ballpark figure I should have in my head before we meet up with the owner?
