Our Services

Preparation

The end result of every project is only as good as the preparation. We will make the necessary repairs including filling holes with the matching color and punching nails.


Sanding

Sanding a timber floor is an art form which should not be attempted by an amateur. Floor sanding machines can be difficult to control and with just one slip you could be left with a very difficult to repair gouge in your floor. Why take the risk when you can have a master floor sander take your floor back to a smooth flat finish. Surfaces which we can sand include tongue & groove, parquetry, cork, ply and overlay.


Staining timber

When staining a floor the color must always be darker than the original timber color. To make the timber lighter it must be done using a white wash. Where floorboards are made from different timber or newer replaced timber boards the color will not exactly match unless we use a dark colored stain. The color of the stained timber will darken when the clear is applied.


Finishes

We use the only highest quality polyurethanes to ensure maximum lifetime and appearance under heavy foot traffic conditions. Available in Satin, Gloss or High Gloss finish in water based for low odor and easy recoating, moisture cured for high durability or 2 component mixes for ultra high durability.


Quotes

We will provide a swift quote upon request immediately after visiting the site. These quotes will be firm and without hidden charges. We can also provide a rough quote when supplied the measurements and condition of the floor along with a few photos by email. Email quotes will then be confirmed after viewing the site if requested.


Domestic or Commercial

No job is too big or too small. From basketball courts and stages to little old Queenslanders, new floors or renovated oldies, we will sand them all.


Recoating or polishing

Sometimes it’s called a maintenance coat. A cost effective way to rejuvenate your timber floors if they are looking a bit tired without having to re-sand. We lightly sand and then apply one or two coats of polyurethane. This procedure cannot be done where the coating has been worn through to bare timber, in this situation we will need to do complete sand and recoat.


All work guaranteed!

As simple as that! All our work is guaranteed.


CARE & CLEANING

A lustrous polished wooden floor won't stay that way for long unless it is looked after. Maintaining that luster is less troublesome than the ongoing cleaning and maintenance of carpets and most other floor coverings. Your hardwood floor does cope with high traffic usage, does not wear unevenly and is cheap to maintain. If can be re-polished if damaged and requires minimal maintenance if looked after.


Maintenance

Dirt and grit is a timber floor's worst enemy! It doesn't just hide the gleam of polished floorboards; its abrasiveness actually harms floorboards too. Use dirt-trapping mats at each entrance to help prevent sand, dust and grit from being trodden getting inside. Small rugs, or carpet squares just inside the door can also help to remove extra dirt from shoes. Dust daily, if possible, with an electrostatic broom.

Strong light, particularly direct sunlight can cause a chemical reaction in wood causing it to change color (aging or weathering). Move rugs occasionally and use curtains or blinds to protect the floor from direct sunlight.

High heel shoes, especially worn ones, will dent any hard floor surface, even concrete! Encourage your visitors to take off their high heels on arrival.

With furniture, it is not so much their weight but movement that damages floorboards. Fit protective pads to the legs of tables and chairs so that they can be moved easily without the risk of scuffing the floor.
