It sounds like you want the wood floor sanded and refinished, correct?

Carpet is cheaper.

BananaTom is correct. You'll spend quite a bit of money & time trying to refinish those floors and if it's going to be a rental, your renters will probably not take care of them properly. I love hardwood - but would never allow it in a rental. Buy some inexpensive carpet - you can probably replace it several times for what you'll spend on refinishing.

I have sanded and refinished some older homes. They all turned out beautiful. A lot of hard work. If you are renting I would stay away from wood. If you are going to live there way your options. They are "beautiful" but there was a reason someone put carpet over it. Expensive to refinish. Also expect higher energy cost, if you have allergy's stay away from hard surfaces. As an added expense wood floors require recoating them to keep them looking beautiful. 1000 sq. ft. $3500 to $5000 to refinish. You can d.i.y. and save or hire someone for beer money. Good luck saku39
