Timber floors are hand sanded in tight spots, gaps are filled, nails get punched in and quad edging is removed prior to machine sanding.
Concrete floors require the filling of cracks and pits prior to grinding which reveals its aggregates.
It is important that the right colour stain is utilised and professionally applied so that your floor feels luxurious, radiates depth and creates a lasting impact.
We can assist in your choice of Oil or Water based Polyurethanes, Oils, Hard Wax oil, Bio Varnish or Organoil stains for your timber or concrete floors.
Once the stain has cured and settled, the finishing stages commence. This involves fine sanding, buffing and polishing of the floor surface.
Depending on the stain selected, polishing will create the final seal and unify the finish over the entire floor surface whether a gloss or satin effect.
Any defects in the floor must be addressed before sanding or grinding. Old timber floors may have gaps between boards and at wall joints, splits along the board's length, or rotten boards. Within reason, small gaps can be filled with putty otherwise most of the issues require replacement of the board.
Concrete imperfections include cracks and pits which in most cases can be fixed using a special filler resin.
In addressing the defects properly, there will be added years of longevity to your newly finished floors.
The preparation of your floors is the key to achieving a perfect result. Timber floors will be sanded using several abrasive grades to achieve a clean smooth surface.
Concrete floors involve a similar process where the surface is grinded in layers to reveal the aggregates within the concerete and create a uniform level.
The machines used for sanding and grinding are designed to create minimal dust.
In both cases, it is crucial that the work environment is kept spotless; free of soils, grease, and most importantly dust as these will impact on the final finish.
There are many timber varieties available and many options when it comes to deciding the timber's finish. You may choose to bring its natural colours to life; add a tint to chnage its tone or colour; or apply an effect to suit the mood of its environtment.
If your floor is concrete, the most common method of finish is either a clear satin or clear gloss as you are emphasising the aggregates in the concrete.
