Re-coating Polished Floors

Economy Floor sanding in Brisbane are polished timber floors re-coating experts. Recoating your polished timber floors plays a huge role in preventing your coating wearing through to the raw wood surface. Once that happens, moisture will penetrate into the timber and cause staining. Remedial measures would require a complete re-sanding of your entire floor area to gain a uniform look again.

There are key locations within your home which are prone to wear first. These are the main foot traffic areas within your home. The working triangle of the kitchen or down the middle of the hall is prime examples of high wear areas.

About Timber Floor Finishes

Your current polished timber floors have a surface film build sited between the bottom of your feet, and the raw timber floor surface. This floor finish film protection or wear layer component provides two functions:

  • The visual appeal
  • A protection barrier between moisture/dirt and the surface of your floorboards
Our Brisbane polished timber floors re-coating service gives you the option to change the gloss level of floors, while at the same time renewing the surface. The level of gloss is determined by the final coat finish and can range from a dead flat finish right through to full gloss.

Gloss Level Guide

Choose a gloss level from our range to suit the style of your home.

The Problem

Once this varnish breaks down or wears through on older timber floors, the only road to recovery is a complete re-stripping of your floors from scratch. Economy Floor Sanding’s Brisbane customers don’t want that type of family disruption. View a Case Study with a worn surface coating.

The Solution

Take advantage of a simple top surface film layer application to renew your Brisbane polished timber floors, parquetry or stairs. It is a one day job! This ‘maintenance coat’ procedure boils down to:

  • Using an abrasive fine mesh screen to sand the surface coat removing fine scratching
  • Final micro-fine sand with Bona buffing pad
  • Washing down to remove contaminant build-up residue
  • Application of a high solids coating of polyurethane for maximum protection film build

Felt Protection

Self adhesive felt pads will protect the floor surface.

Durable Commercial Grade Coatings

After more than 20 years in the Brisbane polished timber floors industry, I believe we have sourced the most durable floor coating available. Monothane HS 50 is a solvent based high solids (high build) polyurethane with superb durability.

We always use the best quality products which offer long term benefits to our customers. With commercial durability your polished timber floors or staircase will have no trouble handling a busy family's foot traffic.

The key aspect a customer should consider after aesthetics is durability – how long a surface coating will last before maintenance (another top coat) will be required.
