Karl has done an amazing job of our 100 year old hoop pine floors. He blended old and new, keeping all the character and making it look fabulous. So pleased we found someone that spent as much time in preparation as in the application. Could not recommend Karl more highly.

Wood Borer Damage

Generally, Hoop Pine wooden flooring is the most common timber flooring found in Queenslanders. Often, old Hoop Pine floors show signs of some form of wood borer activity within an isolated floorboard. A ‘honeycomb’ type effect of damage will be present, and this is a result of borers chewing or tunnelling through the wood.

This effect will cause one of two issues. A visual issue, and a structural one, and often both. Flexing of a floorboard when walking on it, for example would be a structural issue. Borer tracks, viewed on the surface of a floorboard are highlighted by light reflection, this is the negative visual side.

Economy Floor Sanding Brisbane are experts at repairing Borer damage in Hoop Pine floors and also colour matching with aged timber.

Rotary Sanding Technique

For super-flat floors
The last sanding step removes any remaining blemishes on the floor after preparation. It's the difference between an average polished floor versus one that can be looked at from all perspectives under reflected light without any defects. We use a rotary sander with a 150-grit screen mesh disc for the final sanding pass. This guarantees maximum wood grain closure and takes away any signs of sandpaper marks.

Floorboards & Gaps

Sometimes the gaps between floorboards can be a topic for concern, especially in older floors. Because timber is a natural material, it will absorb as well as release moisture.
