Floor Sanding Brisbane Northside

Economy Floor Sanding is based in Cashmere, Brisbane northside. Our service area covers all northside suburbs from Caboolture township right through to the Brisbane River. 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 and Kedron Service Area

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 & McDowall

Well built and generally with solid flooring
Timber floor after a sander and polisher have completed work.
Homes in Aspley, Chermside, and McDowall, 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 and 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. Not only glue, but also staples. Hundreds of them holding down underlay. Broken staples, as can be seen in the image, must of course be punched down. This can cause further issues as can be seen with the floorboard splitting.

Everton Park and Stafford, once again, floor sanders in Brisbane north love these areas. Renovating with polished floors is popular. As can be seen in this image, wall removal has taken place at this Everton Park renovation. The white outline shows where they were previously situated. After creating this open plan, polished floors will, in effect create a uniform look.

Kallangur, Petrie and 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 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.
