There is much to love about hardwood floors. Hardwood is extremely strong and durable. Hardwood floors are famed for their ability to add significant value to homes, and are incredibly easy to maintain and clean. You cannot just install your hardwood floor and forget it. Your hardwood floor takes a lot of punishment every day, and can develop cracks and dents over time. To maintain the look and feel of your hardwood floor, you need to get it refinished every 7-10 years.
On average, homeowners pay between $1,074 and $2400 for hardwood floor refinishing. Expect to pay up to $4,000 for a complex refinishing project involving a lot of effort. If your floor covers a larger than usual area, you may get a discount on your hardwood floor installation in Atlanta.
Expect to pay between $0.50 and $3 per square foot for sanding an average 12X14 foot room (approximately $80-$500). The actual amount you will spend will primarily depend on two factors,

Staining will cost you an additional $1-$3 per square foot. The actual cost spent will depend on the quality of stain used and your contractor’s hourly labor rate.
Recoating will cost you $1-$2 per square foot, which is quite less than refinishing. A major benefit of recoating is that you can skip sanding, which can cost hundreds of dollars.

Homeowners who use a water-based coating usually pay between $25 and $50per gallon.
