    Are there carpets down? is there furniture to move? without seeing it I'd guess at somewhere between 20-30 hours work, probably nearer 30, rate depends on where you are in the country, £15 - £20 per hour.
    If you want to put ronseal woodstain on oak, you won't find a decent decorator. Sadolin quick drying satin varnish, others will suggest Osmo Oil or the like, I prefer varnish.

    No carpets down, no furnture to move, all on one floor, free parking outside I am on the south coast. The only reason I am saying ronseal is thats what the manufacturer is specifying. I have used hard wax oil before on veneered doors but with these been told not to use it
