I did a bid today 2000 sq/ft engineered wood, client asked for two bids, one to refinish existing floor and apply a darker stain she also wants it hand scraped - lol and another bid for brand new 2 1/4 oak hand scraped, the bid also included 18 step & risers + railings, ( the original flooring is an Armstrong engineered product with only a 3/16 wear layer ) I have took on a recent snf project w/ the same floor and it came out pretty nice, but Handscraping it I couldn't imagine doing. I submitted both bids, I get a call immediately from client that says "if you can handscrape existing we have a deal" I over bid it by more then 50%, to avoid this, and she still wants it. I guess my question is to you, would you do it?? Here's a photo of existing floor.
