When to finish the hardwood floor


What do you do first paint the house or sand and refinish hardwood floors?  Max


I would suggest you paint first and finish the hardwood floors after you paint.  This way you don't have to worry about spilling anything on the floor.  Sometimes, due to scheduling issues, we will do the hardwood floors before painting, except for the third and final coat of urethane, which we will do after the painting is complete.  If you do it this way, make sure you are very careful over the finished floors.  Put tarps down and watch the placement of heavy tools etc over the floor.  The floor is pretty soft for the first 30 days and is subject to scratching. Good luck and good remodeling.
