Top 7 reasons to choose us

Don’t be fooled by our name ‘Economy Floor Sanding’
Our primary focus is to offer our clients world-class quality polished timber flooring and strive to exceed our customer's expectations.

1. You deal direct with the business owner

From quote to completion of your floors, you deal with the business owner.
Karl is your sole point of contact, and the only tradesman attending your home. You get a fully qualified tradesman with over 20 years of hands-on experience in sanding, polishing and restoring timber floors in Brisbane.

2. The difference in quality

The labour and technique used to restore your timber floors is all carried out in your home. How this is done, and the care taken, will determine the quality.
The best way to explain, is to show you in this video.
This floor was previously sanded and polished by another company. We point out the sanding defects they left in this floor. Then we show you how we fixed them and created a stunning feature floor in this home.

3. Commercial grade durability

The type of coating used on your floors is a big deal. Ultimately, it will determine whether your floors last 2 to 3 years or 10 to 20 years. Unfortunately, most clients don’t even enquire about this aspect.

We use a 3 coat system of moisture cured HIGH SOLIDS Polyurethane. It is a highly durable coating also used in high traffic commercial applications.

I have walked into some clients’ homes 10 years after completion, and they still look as good as the day I finished!

4. Customer security

The Q.B.C.C. (Queensland Building & Construction Commission) is the governing body for all building work in Queensland. From a customer standpoint, you should insist on a Q.B.C.C. contract for your protection.
We use Q.B.C.C. contracts with every job.

5. Peace of mind

Generally, vacating your home during works is necessary. It would be unsettling not knowing who is entering your home, which in most cases would be random employees (as the case with larger companies)
Relax because Karl, the business owner, is the only tradesman onsite.

6. Up-front pricing

Our quotations form part of the Q.B.C.C. contract and are treated as a legal document. All facets of the work are included in the quotation offered.
The quoted price is in the Q.B.C.C. contract so there are no surprises.

7. Keeping you informed

Karl stays in touch during works and advises on any latent issues if they arise. The day after completion your floors are inspected to verify the highest quality has been achieved.
You are kept up to date and Karl is just a phone call away!

Karl is a gentleman. He coated our floors and they look amazing! I am so thankful we chose the matt finish (as recommended) as it looks great. Two years on, the floors are standing well up the abuse of two kids under 4. Karl was even kind enough to... come back 2 years later and coat a small section when we removed a kitchen cabinet. I certainly will be using Karl again in the future as we continue to renovate the house!read more

Karl was fast to respond and took great care to quote and then do the work for our floors. He took time when quoting and talked us through his quote and then when we pulled up the carpet and discovered some issues, Karl kindly took care of them at... no extra charge. The work was beautifully and meticulously finished and he even gave us great after care tips.read more

Karl has done an amazing job of our 100 year old hoop pine floors. He blended old and new, keeping all the character and making it look fabulous. So pleased we found someone that spent as much time in preparation as in the application. Could not... recommend Karl more highly.read more
