This week, we continue our ongoing series that goes over common problems we see when we go out to do estimates for people. A recurring theme in this series is simple negligence, laziness, and ignorance. Due to the nature of hardwood floor work, some tasks may seem repetetive or not important because the average homeowner isn’t going to notice. We’re writing this so you do notice! Educate yourself when it comes to handiwork, it could save you stress and money!
Our customers always have great questions for us. A common question is, “What’s the difference between a drum sander and an orbital sander?”. The two are very different machines good for accomplishing different tasks, but are often used inappropriately by amateurs. We’ve come across countless instances on DIY forums where people are simply using the wrong tool for the job.
