Power Tools for Flooring Projects

By: Danny Lipford

Flooring projects often require expensive, specialty power tools to make the work go faster. Fortunately, most of these tools are available to rent at home improvement centers or tool rental stores.

Power flooring tools that are available to rent include:

  • Motorized Floor Scraper for removing glued vinyl flooring ($50-$60/day)
  • Jamb Saw to cut the bottom of door casing for flooring ($30-$40/day)
  • Drum Sander for sanding down wood flooring ($40-$50/day)
  • Edge Sander for sanding wood floors next to walls and doorways ($30-$40/day)
