Floor Sanding Brisbane Northside

Economy Floor Sanding are your north Brisbane floor sanding and polishing specialists. Our service area covers all Brisbane northside suburbs from the CBD right through to the Caboolture township.

Brisbane Northside Service Areas

Below is an overall outline of the areas we service. Because each area will vary in age, we also explain what is uniquely different about these homes, and of course, their floors.
Hoop Pine floor in Gordon Park, Brisbane northside.

Gordon Park, Kedron, Stafford & Grange

Well established older homes
Homes in Gordon Park and Kedron are generally where you find the classic old Queensland style homes.

Home renovations are thriving, especially in Gordon Park. Old Hoop Pine Floors are usually the most common type of flooring in these classic homes. Generally, some previously ‘external’ decks are now enclosed. Often these are made from hardwood. Enclosing decks is generally common in these Brisbane northside areas. Because of this, multiple flooring species can be present in the same home.

Aspley, Chermside, Bracken Ridge & Bald Hills

Well built and generally with solid flooring

Homes in Aspley, Chermside, Bracken Ridge & Bald Hills, in contrast generally have hardwood flooring.

This image of a floor in Chermside is typical of what we encounter. In this case, carpet was previously laid throughout this home. Hence it kept it in perfect condition. On the negative side, when we removed it, the skirting boards were sitting 2 cm off the surface. The best solution is to just lower them to the floor. The owner instead chose to install timber quad to cover the gaps. (at a later date) Painting them to colour match the skirting boards helps to conceal it.

A hardwood floor showing nails punched and a splitting floorboard.

Geebung, Virginia, Banyo & Wavell Heights

Established and ripe for renovations
These homes usually have multiple layers of old floor coverings present

They are also a floor sander’s dream. Despite their age, they are solid well-built floors. Although this may be true, we frequently find old floor coverings that give us grief. For example, lino glued directly to a floor, or hundreds of staples holding down underlay. Broken staples, as can be seen in the image, must be punched down. This can cause further issues as can be seen with the floorboard splitting.

Kallangur, Petrie, Mango Hill & North Lakes

North Brisbane outskirts suburbs
Re-coating a polished floor with a roller and wet polyurethane.
Timber flooring is abundant in Kallangur and Petrie.

Generally younger families with children seek the hygienic quality of polished timber floors. Likewise with North Lakes. Although in contrast, North Lakes is a near new Brisbane northside region. Although timber floors are present, it is generally not from front door to back, like the older timber floors in neighbouring suburbs. At the same time, at about 14 years old, original polished floors are now due to be re-sanded or re-coated. Floor sanders are now rubbing their hands together. This image shows a floor at the re-coat stage.

Floorboard 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.
