FLOOR SANDING AND POLISHING TIMBER DECKS

Sanding timber decks and recoating them with a fresh layer of deck finish is part of the ongoing maintenance required with exterior timber decks in Brisbane, especially if they are not covered and completely exposed to the harsh Australian sunlight. Floor sanding your wooden deck before the timber deck coating becomes compromised and starts to let moisture into the timber is paramount if you wish to keep your deck looking its best. If the timber deck is neglected, returning it to its best will cost more as damaged and unsafe wooden decking will need to be replaced. To avoid this unnecessary timber flooring cost, it is advised to make sure that the deck coating is still holding up against the harsh outdoor elements. A light sand of the deck and a single coat of deck finish may be all that is needed. If the deck has had a bit of a hard life, a complete re sand of the timber flooring may be required with multiple coats of timber deck finish applied to protect it from the elements. If your deck needs a little renovating or a complete timber floor restoration, contact Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane for a free floor sanding and polishing quote.

HOW TO GET RID OF ORANGE COLOURED TIMBER FLOORS WITH FLOOR SANDING.

Would you like to update the look of your timber floors? Old hoop pine timber floors can take on an orange colour as the polyurethane finish "yellows" with age. The only way to restore your timber floors back to a more natural timber tone is to strip the old floor finish off. Budget Floor Sanding, sanded and polished the old timber floors in this Brisbane home in two stages. The photo shows the old orange wooden floor before sanding and the timber floor renovation with a new water based non yellowing timber floor finish. The water based wood floor finish was chosen as it tends not to darken as much as polyurethane wood floor finishes. Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane returned at a later date to complete the floor sanding and polishing project. If the orange colour of your timber floor needs an update or perhaps you would prefer a darker stained timber floor or a lighter limed Scandinavian timber floor look, Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane can transform your old timber floors with a new appearance. If you can't decide whether to darken or lighten your timber floors, take a look at our website for some polished timber floor inspiration.

FLOOR SANDING SANDPAPER DONATION

Through out the year Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane uses a substantial amount of quality Norton sand paper to prepare timber floors for the floor sanding and polishing process. Due to some of the sand papers being custom cut to fit our floor sanding machinery, there are small left over off cuts. It seems such a waste to discard such a useful and costly material. Budget Floor Sanding has found a happy recipient of our off cut sand paper in The Wood Turners Society of Qld. We hope it is a helpful donation to their association.

SANDING AND POLISHING TO CHANGE THE COLOUR OF
YELLOWED WOODEN FLOORS

Over time polished wooden floors may seem to change colour and lighter toned timbers may take on a orange tone known as "Yellowing". The timber flooring hasn't changed but the coating upon it has. In the past most products used in the floor sanding and polishing industry had a tendency to yellow with age. With advances in timber floor finishing products, Non yellowing products are now available. So if you are looking to alter the colour of your wooden floor, Budget Floor Sanding can assist by either re sanding and polishing your floor, with a non yellowing timber floor finish or by liming or staining your timber floor to a colour of your choice.

                       THE LATEST TRENDS IN TIMBER FLOORING

Parquetry is back!  Minimalism has lost its grip on fashion and pattern is making a return in 2016. No other style of timber flooring offers more options of pattern than parquetry. Polished wooden floors have been in fashion for some years now. Especially since so many of our old timber homes already have timber floors. Often the floor boards are hidden under layers of dust mite infested carpet or out of fashion old lino or tiles. Peeling back the carpet and finding timber floors at the start of a home renovation, can be a welcome relief for the new home owner. Floor sanding and polishing the wooden floor is an easy and economical way to revive the potential of these lovely old character homes. Sometimes there is the added bonus of discovering parquetry flooring hidden away. Parquet flooring was made famous by Louis XIV. He replaced his marble floors with parquetry in his humble abode at Versailles.
The most common patterns around Brisbane are The Herringbone, and Square on Square. Both parquetry patterns sit easily in a contemporary or classic home. So don't rip up the floor, not all homes are lucky enough to have such a stunning feature. Restore this elegant style of wooden flooring back to its sophisticated best and be the envy of all your friends with your beautiful polished parquetry floors. If your one of the lucky ones and would like to sand and polish your floors back to their former glory, contact us at Budget Floor Sanding and we will gladly oblige.

           GHOSTING-WHITE MARKS IN POLISHED TIMBER FLOORS   

Ghosting is the appearance of lightly coloured boot prints or cloudy smudges that appear in polished timber floors, some time after the floor sanding and polishing has taken place. The exact cause is still uncertain, but at this point in time there are a few theory's. Some ghosting is thought to be caused by oils being absorbed from bare feet or more often, footwear into partially cured floor finishes that contain some residual solvents. The oils are rapidly dissolved by the residual solvents. The oils remain dormant within the cured coatings until UV light gradually breaks them down. Gradually a ‘ghost’ reproduction of the exact object that was in contact with the floor starts to appear on the polished timber floor. The majority of the foot or boot prints are usually within a couple of meters of windows or glass doors walls or where natural light hits the floor. Unfortunately there is no quick fix and the only way to remove the white marks from the timber floor, is to re sand and polish the floor. Well worth the effort though. You will be rewarded with the beauty of natural polished timber floors.

                                      POLISHED WOODEN STAIRS

The majority of the floors in this contemporary Brisbane home had been tiled. The staircase became a stunning standout feature of the home, when it was constructed and completed as sanded and polished timber stairs. A water based finish, with a satin appearance was used to finish the project.

                            Musee d'Orsay  "THE FLOOR SCRAPERS' 

The "Floor Scrapers" is a oil painting by the french impressionist Gustave Caillebotte that is currently displayed in the Musee d'Orsay. It illustrates three flooring tradesmen on hands and knees preparing a wooden floor in a Parisian apartment. Caillebotte's oil painting was one of the first to feature the working class in an urban environment. In 1875 "The Floor Scrapers" was rejected by France's most prestigious art exhibition of the time, The Salon. The "vulgar subject matter"of partially clothed working-class wooden flooring tradesmen, shocked the judges of the famous art competition. The painting depicts the beginnings of the floor sanding and polishing trade in 19th century France.
The polished wooden floors that were sought after by the French bourgeois are still considered stylish and a timeless feature, desired for our modern and heritage Brisbane homes.

The floor sanding and polishing process and the timber floor finishes of today have greatly evolved from Gustave Caillebotte's "Floor Scrapers" era. More floor sanding and polishing information can be found on our website http://budgetfloorsanding.com.au/

                  POLISHED  FLOOR RENOVATION AND STAINING

After the completion of a Hamilton renovation, Budget Floor Sanding polished floors in a large extension at the rear of the home. Hoop Pine flooring had been chosen for the new timber floor installation. The owners were keen to stain the new timber flooring to make it look similar to the old Hoop Pine flooring in the original part of the Queenslander home.The wooden floor was stained with Feast Watson Prooftint stain to transformed the timber floors appearance. Now the new section of flooring ties in with the older original wooden floors. The floor was finished with a satin polyurethane finish, this softer subdued finish suits the old Queenslander home.
