Repairing Noisy Timber Floorboards
Repair Floor Surface damage
Timber floor repairs such as scratches, scuff marks or surface damage can be an easy fix. This is only if they are superficial, that is, only in the top coat of the polyurethane. The negative side is that the entire floor will need to be re-coated to avoid gloss level variations. If the scratch is in an inconspicuous location, an individual board may be coated as a quick repair. This type of repair would not impact on the floor as a whole.
Repair Timber Floor Moisture Damage
Water and moisture damage is most prevalent in or next to wet areas. Wet areas would include the bathroom, toilet, laundry and kitchen. Failed pipe connections leaking under floor coverings over time can be a cause. Moisture barrier coatings in bathrooms can also fail. Fibrous cells of the timber absorb moisture and will begin to break down over an extended period of time. Staining of the floorboards can also occur. An onsite inspection will determine the extent of the damage.
Restoring Floors with UV light Damage
UV light or unfiltered sunlight reaching the floor surface has damaging effects over time. Just as our skin will burn without the filter of sunscreen, so too will your floors suffer harm. Excessive yellowing of the surface coating will be the first tell-tale sign. If it is detected early, you can stop it by filtering the light. If left too long the coating will start to deteriorate and break down. The interior coating would be exposed to the full exposure of the sun. This would be like it was coated on an exterior deck. Interior finishes can not withstand this type of exposure to the sun.
Timber Floor Restoration Repairs
After a major home restoration there are a many reasons your floors may need attention. Removing walls to achieve open plans or kitchen adjustments can expose raw timber surfaces. Damage from tradesmen’s tools or building materials can also lead to possible repairs. Repairs can range from a simple re-coat to a complete re-sand back to raw timber to rectify the abuse.
Timber Floor Rejuvenation
Rejuvenation of worn polished floors is just general maintenance. Polyurethane finishes will thin and will wear down over time. This is generally in main traffic zones such as in the kitchen and down the centre-path of the hallway. The rest of the polished floor surface may need a re-coat at the same time. This is to get that uniform gloss appearance throughout. Re-coating a floor is a one day procedure for minimal disruption for your family.
Timber Sub-floor Repairs
Minor sub-floor repairs may be necessary in older homes, and if under-floor access in available, most of these repairs are quite simple. Floor joists may need bracing or propping up to remedy a spongy section of flooring.
