We are goining to paint our hardwood floor because it is costly to have it replace. To many spots in the floor to refinish it. Any way is there any certain produres to follow. I don't want to paint it and it come off everytime we walk on it.

Hey Munchkin. There are a few things to consider. First you have to look at the type of wood your floor is constructed of. You would not want to hide a beautiful oak? What do you mean by "too many spots in the floor"?
As far as the cost to refinish.......YOU could do it yourself! You may need to read a little to gain some insight but in the long run you'll be very proud of the results. If all else fails remember that preparation is the key. It may need a light sanding or the full treatment. you have to make sure it is C L E A N. You will then need the proper primer and a good enamel that that will wear well. A little research and planning will go a long way. you will gain some knowledge, save alot of money and have a floor (refinished or painted) you can be proud of. Good luck and enjoy!
