Default hardwood repair question

If a contractor has to repair a small section of your hardwood floors, does he have to refinish the whole room too? We just want that small section fixed and we're trying to get price quotes. This one contractor said he has to refinish the whole room so the section will match the rest of the wood. But the other parts of the room are fine. Is this standard?

You won't be able to match the patch dead on so he is right

If the whole floor isn't redone it will be noticeable... A good contractor can do it without MUCH notice, but it will still be slightly different. So its all based on how much you want to spend.

What they said .... Unless....

If its a newer floor and if its a pre-finished wood floor and if the style/color is still made and if its still available hen it is possible to repair just the damaged sections.

Lots of If's.
