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.Cameron Turner

Restoring Floors in Queenslander Syle HomesWood 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.
