Businesses charge an average of $28/m2 for timber floor repairs. However, this changes depending on factors such as the extent of repair or the size of the area to be repaired. Typically, rates range from $25/m2 to $30/m2.
What affects the price of timber floor repair
There are a number of things that influence the cost of a timber floor repair job including the following:
Extent of repairs
This usually has the biggest impact on pricing. Simple scratches, stains, or discolorations are relatively minor repairs, and tradies do not normally charge much to fix them. On the other hand, sagging wood or decaying floor joists are a bit more difficult to fix. Repairs like these are labour-intensive, and businesses are likely to charge more money as a result.
Size of area to be repaired
Since most timber floor repair companies offer rates on a per square metre basis, the size of the floor area that needs repair directly affects the final cost of your job.
There are some tasks that might not be included in the price, which was originally quoted for you. Examples include floor sanding, polishing, or re-finishing. Any of these services may be needed if the repair is so extensive that the floor was left uneven.
Costs vary from state to state
Queensland residents pay an average rate of $25/m2 for timber floor repairs. Prices, however, are a little higher in Victoria where businesses charge around $27/m2 for the same service. At approximately $30/m2, timber floor repairs in New South Wales is the most expensive across the country.
