We Sand, We Polish, We Shine!

Economy Floor Sanding is an experienced, full service timber floor restoration company. Karl Little is the business owner, and to this day still enjoys the ‘hands on’ work creating beautiful polished timber floors for our clients. We have been in business since 1997 and service homes and businesses throughout the Brisbane region.

My first job, straight out of school was with a local floor sanding company. Working with wooden floors seemed very satisfying, especially witnessing the end results. Moving the clock forward up to the present time, nothing has changed. Call this company and you talk to me – Karl Little. I am your sole point of contact throughout the entire process.

Our aim is to assist the home renovator add that spark to their completed renovation work. Rather than just settling for an ‘OK’ floor, we strive to create a stunning talking point within your home.

Floors take up a large surface area in your home. Therefore they can impact the overall look and feel in a big way. In the event that you want to smile rather than sigh when you look at them, then you’re in the right place.

Karl was fast to respond and took great care to quote and then do the work for our floors. He took time when quoting and talked us through his quote and then when we pulled up the carpet and discovered some issues, Karl kindly took care of them at no extra charge. The work was beautifully and meticulously finished and he even gave us great after care tips.

We've recently had a repair made to our deck which resulted in the exposed part of the deck being replaced. This meant we needed the original deck sanded and the entire deck coated. Karl has just finished the job and we couldn't be happier.Quote Process - so clear and easy to understand; probably one of the better quotes we've ever received for trade style work to be completed at our homeOn job - Karl arrived when he said he would and kept us updated along the way. There were no surprises and it was very clear to us that Karl takes pride in what he does.Finished result - the result was so much better than we expected; it is not possible to tell where the replacement portion of the deck is, with a nice even finish across the entire deck. Karl covers the underneath area of the deck too, so no stray drips onto the area below.We would have no hesitation in recommending Karl for his attention to detail, care factor and end result.

Karl is a gentleman. He coated our floors and they look amazing! I am so thankful we chose the matt finish (as recommended) as it looks great. Two years on, the floors are standing well up the abuse of two kids under 4. Karl was even kind enough to come back 2 years later and coat a small section when we removed a kitchen cabinet. I certainly will be using Karl again in the future as we continue to renovate the house!

During our renovation, Karl was the most professional person we had dealt with. Always on time and very informative. The finished product was excellent and I have no doubt we got the best results possible. We love our new floors. Thanks Karl!

We could not be any happier with the work completed by Karl. The floors had previously been finished by a professional and the result was ok. Karl has just finished our floors today and we were totally blown away with the quality of the finished product. It is better than we could have expected. On top of this, Karl's communication and punctuality was spot on. We will definitely be recommending Economy Floor Sanding to to anyone looking for a first rate floor finisher.

I am so happy that I have booked him to do the second level of my home which is a much bigger area . I know he will do an amazing job. Thank you so much Karl.

Karl was fantastic and the floors look even better than we had hoped. He had excellent advice, replaced and colour matched broken boards, fitted in to our timelines (which were limited) perfectly and was polite, prompt, helpful and went the extra mile by removing a door that had dragged on boards and planed it to size. Thanks Karl! We will definitely recommend you.

Karl was very honest and open to deal with a great level of knowledge. Arrived on time and work was completed promptly with little dust. Originally I was skeptical about how my 30 year old pine floors would look, but I couldn't be any happier WOW!

Karl was at my house this week sanding and polishing the old timber floors which hadn't seen the light of day for decades. When I saw the finished product I couldn't believe my eyes! The new floors totally brought the house back to life!.... Karl was professional, easy to deal with and very speedy throughout the job process. He even fixed a broken floor board at no extra cost - what a champ!.... Money well spent.... Thanks Karl!!Regards,Chris

Karl treated our floors in July 2015, and we sold the house soon after. During the selling period, we received many compliments on how great the mixed hardwood floors looked, and we found them to be very easy to maintain. It's now November 2015, we've bought another house, removed very old carpet and underlay and tar-like glue, and Karl has again done a brilliant job of revealing the natural beauty of the timber floors.

Just thought I would leave a review about Economy Floor Sanding, as I feel they have more than impressed me with the service I have received. Karl was a very professional tradesman, he was polite and courteous, but more to the point he did a fantastic job on our floors. If anyone is in the market to sand and polish their floors, I would definitely recommend their services.

We had Karl, from Economy Floor Sanding around to do our floors in a home we recently purchased. We were on a tight time frame and found our floors also needed repairs. Karl carried out the repairs between his other booked works, then finished our floors to meet our deadline. At first we expected you would see some sign that the floorboards had been replaced. The colour and repair in the water damaged area was blended perfectly, as if it was never there. Thanks again for a fantastic result!

A quick note to say how pleased I was to have Karl (from Economy Floor Sanding) sand and polish the lounge, dining room, kitchen and breakfast room in my 1920s house. Karl was on time when he came to give a quote and offered advice on what to do to bring to life the floors that had been neglected for sometime.Karl completed the job (4 days) without fuss and the floors are looking great. He also did a couple of extras (sanded the bench top in the kitchen, replaced a floor board and fashioned a wood surround for the tiled fireplace).Very much appreciated his professional touch and would highly recommend his work to anyone contemplating rejuvenating their tired floors.
