Floor Finishes Geelong

Your timber floor finish is what gives it its distinctive look.  It affects the tone and color of the floor. Do you like a raw, unprocessed look? Then you can go with a clear finish. Do you prefer a more amber tone that still highlights the wood grain? You have many stains and oils to choose from. Or you can go stylish with a limewash or super deep brown. 

Your floor finish is also what protects your floor from the elements and from wear and tear. The type of finish you choose will affect the durability of your timber flooring – its susceptibility to water damage or staining, and its resistance to scuffing or scratching. There are a lot of options when it comes to timber floor finishes, such as stains, oils, waxes, polyurethanes, and various combinations of those. Let our experts guide you to the best choice.

All timber floors need maintenance and repairs, even the best quality wooden flooring. There is no way to avoid scratches, dents, scuffs and spills.

Floor Finishes Geelong

All timber floors need some type of protective coating on them. Otherwise, the effects of temperature and humidity would cause the boards to warp and crack. Plus, unprotected wood flooring would soon be damaged by stains, scratches and scuffing.

In addition to solving those problems, a floor finish adds beauty and lustre to your wood floor. We have a vast array of finishes that will suit the décor of any home or workplace. Whether you are going for a natural, rustic look or a stylized designer look, we have the expertise and the materials to realize your vision.

Our timber floor polishing enhances the beauty of your floors and protects them for years to come. Let’s take a look at some of the different types of floor finishes that Floor Sanding Geelong can offer.

Oils & Hard Wax Oils

Penetrating oils like linseed oil and tung oil give your timber floor a subtle, natural look that brings out the wood grain and highlights the color. Hard wax oils can be buffed to high shine finish. This type of finish tends to be low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) so it is environmentally friendly. Oil floor finishes are not as durable as some other types, and can be more prone to stains from spillage or water. But minor damage from wear and tear is usually easy to repair. And with regular care, it’s possible to refinish the floor without sanding it down first.

Polyurethane 

There are two categories of polyurethane floor finishes: water-based and oil-based.

Water-based polyurethane is one of the most popular finishes these days due to its low VOCs and a fast drying time.  This floor coating is versatile as well – it dries clear, so you can put it on natural wood to preserve the natural color and enhance the grain, or you can use it as a sealer on top of a stain finish. Water-based poly finishes tend to be low shine. Although resistant to spillage – it’s basically a plastic coating on top of the timber – it’s not as hard-wearing as the oil-based variety. On the other hand, due to their low VOC content, water-based polys don’t give off noxious fumes and can even be completely odourless. The drying time is also fairly short. 

Oil-based polyurethane is a little more expensive than water-based. These finishes have a high VOC content and a long dry time. The advantage of oil-based polys is that they’re more durable and long-lasting than water-based. The finish can range from matte to high gloss. The downside is the finish will yellow with age.

Stains

Stains penetrate deeply into the wood, both adding color and protection. A wide range of stain colours are available, from lime wash to near black. It’s even possible for us to mix and match stains to get just the tone you want for your timber floor. For an extra layer of protection, we can put a polyurethane coating on top of stain as a sealant.

Our experts in floor polishing are second to none in their knowledge of floor polishing products and methods. From selecting the right finish to getting the job done flawlessly without disruptions, we’ll take care of you.

If you need timber floor repairs or refinishing in Geelong, you can always rely on us. From small repairs to complete floor board replacement, we can restore your wooden floor to pristine condition in no time. Like a doctor with a patient, we treat your wooden floor repairs with expert care and skill.

In addition to restoring your floor, we’ll also offer you expert advice and suggestions on how to best maintain the condition of your floor and finish, saving you time and money in the future. For any kind of timber floor repairs or refinishing, contact us today for a free consultation. From solid hardwood floors to parquet floors to floating floors, we can fix it.

Properly taken care of, wooden flooring can last for generations. But maintenance and repairs are unavoidable, even with the highest quality wooden flooring. There is no way that you can avoid surface scratches, dents and spills. Just the wear and tear of daily foot traffic will dull and scuff your finish.

Wooden floors are also susceptible to the elements – sunshine can cause the colour to fade, and temperature changes and moisture can cause floorboards to warp and crack. Boards may come loose from the subfloor and lift around the edges. When this happens, it can destroy the look of the room and make your home feel old and in disrepair. 

However, Floor Repairs Geelong can solve all of these issues and more. Our skilled craftsmen know what it takes to put some life back into your floor surfaces.

We have the techniques to do patch repairs so that they blend seamlessly with the rest of the floor. We’ll expertly buff or hand sand your scratches and stains and refinish. We can fill holes or dents with putty that’s perfectly colour-matched to your floor finish. 

For larger areas, it may be necessary to replace part or all of your timber floor. This involves carefully removing the floor boards from the subfloor, prepping the subfloor surface, and placing new boards that match the old ones so that they fit seamlessly. We can do all of this cost-effectively and with minimal disruption so you can carry on with your life or business.

Cork floor repairs

Cork floors are popular nowadays as a green and comparatively cheap flooring option that is easy to maintain. However, cork flooring can easily be damaged by furniture leaving dents, pets scratching it with their claws, and staining. You should maintain a good polyurethane finish on your cork floor to protect it as much as possible. For scratches and dents we can repair them using colour-matched filler. For larger repairs we may wet-sand and then spot refinish with polyurethane.

Parquet floor repairs

Restoring your parquet floor will do a lot to bring out its unique look. We’ll replace damaged planks and re-glue loose ones. Then we use just the right amount of sanding and filler to create a perfect surface for refinishing. Finally, we’ll apply the oil or water-based polyurethane finish of your choice and your parquet floor will be back to its original stunning form. 

We are well-known in Geelong for offering reasonable and affordable wooden floor repair and restoration services, including parquet floors, bamboo floors, and cork floors, and we’re ready to assist you with your specific flooring requirements.

Why timber flooring?

There are a lot of reasons to consider timber flooring for your home. The first thing is, it just looks good! You can’t deny the sophistication that a beautiful wooden floor adds to a room. It’s just classy. And it goes with any style.

Another reason that probably occurred to you is that timber flooring is easier to clean. Just sweep and mop. Did somebody spill food or track dirt in the house? No problem – just wipe it up (as long as you have a good protective finish on it, that is). Unlike carpeting, timber floors don’t absorb odours and dust.

Timber floors can last a long time, too. Again unlike carpeting, when your timber floor starts to show some wear and tear you don’t need to replace it. Refinishing can restore its former glory.

And home buyers recognize these benefits of timber flooring and are willing to pay more for it. So an investment in wooden flooring is an investment in the value of your home.

Of course, while wooden floors are durable, they do need maintenance. For the most part, you’ll need to take care of the floor finish. This is what protects your floor boards from wear and tear, scratches and stains. But regular foot traffic, pets, furniture and spillage will take their toll. So, refinishing and some spot repairs will certainly be required along the way.

Finally, cost is a factor as well. Timber flooring can be expensive, especially high-grade solid hardwood flooring. Engineered timber flooring and laminated flooring can be cheaper, so let’s look at these different types of timber flooring.

Different kinds of timber flooring

Solid wood flooring is the most expensive option. Different species of wood have different characteristics of color, grain and hardness. Australian beech, blackbutt, Cypress pine, and American Oak are popular species for hardwood floors. One factor that can affect both the appearance and the cost of solid timber flooring is the grade of the timber – the higher the grade, the fewer imperfections (like knots). Solid wood flooring is normally finished on site after installation.

Another option is engineered timber flooring. Engineered timber boards have a veneer of real wood on a substrate of plywood. Engineered timber floors can be installed directly on the subfloor or floated in a foam layer. The planks are normally pre-finished, so installation is easier than solid timber flooring.

The third main type is laminated timber flooring, which is layers of pressed wood with a photo image of a wood species laminated on it and covered with a protective layer of clear plastic. This type of flooring is both very durable and easy to repair because you can get replacement planks that are a perfect match.

Deciding which type of timber floor to install depends on the look you want to achieve, your budget, and other factors like environmental conditions and the function of the room. Our team of experts can walk you through all the options and help you make the right choice.

Deck Sanding Geelong

There’s no getting around it – your beautiful deck is not going to stay that way forever. Your wooden deck in Geelong is exposed to sun, rain and temperature fluctuations that inevitably cause the wood to dull, crack and possibly warp. Expansion and contraction of the timber may cause nails or screws to protrude (not to mention the rust). And stains are unavoidable, too. 

Fortunately, there is a process that will restore beauty to your deck. Our experienced deck sanding and refinishing professionals in Geelong will clean, sand and refinish your deck to remove the old finish, mold, algae, dirt, and peeling paint. We will then apply a premium coating in a natural tone or solid color of your choice for beautification and protection. 

Do you need to sand your deck?

Most experts agree you will need to refinish your deck every 2-3 years. The question is, do you need to sand the deck before refinishing?

The answer is yes – if you want to prolong the life of the deck finish as long as possible. Even well-sealed decks in Geelong accumulate grime, mold or algae that seeps into the pores. Over time, the elements wear away the sealant, too. 

You want to get rid of all that gunk as well as the remaining old sealant before you apply new stain and a new layer of sealant. Otherwise, it may not be fully or evenly absorbed by the wood, and then you may find yourself facing the same situation again in as little as one year.

In addition, there will always be some amount of discoloration on the surface of your deck from exposure to the elements. Sanding that layer of gunk away brings out the true colour of the wood.

Our expert deck sanding process

Deck sanding needs to be done with knowledge and care. Long exposure outdoors can make deck planks very susceptible to damage from improper cleaning and sanding. 

The first thing to do is clean the deck thoroughly. Some people use chemical deck cleaners or powerwashing, but sometimes it’s enough to wash with detergent. Ensuring the right cleaning products and methods are used is essential in order to prevent further damage to the deck. 

Our deck sanding specialists in Geelong will wait until the deck is dry after washing and then check for loose planks, nails or screws. We hammer or screw any protruding nails or screws to just below flush, and we replace any that are rusted or damaged.

It’s important to use the right type of sander – for most surfaces an orbital sander is best – and to use it in the right way, moving with the wood grain. We use just the right coarseness and pressure for your wooden deck. If you sand with too fine a grit, it will interfere with absorption of the finish. For board ends we use a smaller detail sander and hand sanding for hard to reach areas on railings. 

After vacuuming and wiping down, we’re ready to apply whatever type of stain or finish you prefer. Darker stains tend to penetrate the wood more than transparent ones, so they last longer. We can advise you on the most suitable options for refinishing your wooden deck, or we can exactly match your previous finish. It’s up to you.
