Kedron Floor Case Study

We just completed this Cypress pine floor for a customer who was preparing to sell their home. Of course, they were keen to add that wow factor with a full gloss finish to grab a buyer’s attention and also create an impact.

Therefore I knew I had to impress this customer, and also deliver on my promise.

First of all, they just installed a new kitchen, so this exposed some old plumbing holes. There were also surface defects and extensive dog claw marks throughout.

Floor Sanding Defects

These floors had been polished years ago. It was obvious that a lack of quality sanding equipment had left these floors in poor condition. Also, an edge sander with a rounded up nose had caused some damage. This seems to have left arc shaped indentations around all the edges. I had further concerns because of the terrible wave effect left in the floor. This is due to the floor sanding equipment which was previously used.

Problem in the Kitchen

The new kitchen did not sit exactly where the old cabinets were situated. As a result, this exposed a section of raw timber. Also old plumbing holes needed repairing. The rounded up nose on the edger (previously used) had caused a problem. There was a deep groove left around the raw timber area which needed to be sanded out. This caused me to have to sand off more timber than I would normally feel comfortable with. Just to be safe, I screwed up and glued a brace across that area from under the floor to strengthen it.

The completed Floor

The board replacement in the kitchen blended in perfectly. Finally, with the right prep work, this home ended up with a super-flat floor. Most of all, this will help this customer sell their home.
