Aspley Chermside & McDowall

Well built older homes generally with hardwood floors
Timber floor after a sander and polisher have completed work.
Brisbane northside real estate 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 all over this floor. In fact since it was built. 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. In reality, the best solution is to lower them to the floor. The owner instead chose to install timber quad to cover the gaps. (at a later date) And painting them to match the skirting boards. Get a floor sanding quote in Aspley, Chermside or McDowall now!

Geebung, Virginia and Wavell Heights

Established Older Brisbane Northside Suburbs
Wavell Heights, Virginia and Geebung are established older Brisbane northside suburbs. 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 we also encounter 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.

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 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. Get a floor sanding quote in Kallangur, Petrie or North Lakes now!
