Do Expect

  • Quality sanding and coating
  • A coating that will provide many years of beauty providing it is properly maintined (Refer to care and maintenance)
  • All visible nails punched and filled using appropriate colour putty.
  • All knot holes and gaps at end of boards will with appropriate colour putty.
  • Some variation in colour and grain between new and old boards.
  • Black Japanning or stain around perimeter of some older floors may produce a finished floor with a two tone effect.
  • Movement in timber floors. All timber floors will expand and contract according to the environment. This is quite normal and to be expected.
  • Some lighting, particularly downlights will produce a visible, fine, circular, scratched effect on the finished floor. High gloss finishes will tend to accentuate this effect. It often reduces over time.

Don’t Expect

  • A completely dust free finish. It is impossible to have a totally dust free environment, so there will always be some dust particles in the air that may settle on the wet coating. These small dust particles that appear in the finished floor surface will walk off quite quickly in traffic areas.
  • Removal of deep cuts or gouges in boards. The deep cuts and gouges will often appear darker after sanding and coating.
  • Removal of all stains by the sanding process. Animal urine stains and water stains withing the boards and around nail holes are often impossible to successfully sand out. They will appear black after coating.
  • Filling of gaps between the boards. Unless specifically quoted for, gaps between boards are not filled because subsequent shrinkage and expansion in the timber will often cause cracking in the filler.
  • Do not expect boards damaged by borers or other insects to have the same gloss level as those in good condition.
  • Do not expect any areas filled with putty to have the same feel as the timber after application of coatings.
