Budget Floor Sanding were recently engaged to floor sand and polish this set of open tread timber stairs. The client was keen to maintain the light pine colour of the timber as much as possible. Unfortunately either end of the stair treads had previously been covered in paint. After the floor sanding process it was evident that this section of the stair tread was a little lighter in colour. In order to help hide this discolouration, the stair treads were finished with a Enviro Pro water based coating in which a liming solution was mixed. After two coats of this white wash solution, the colour difference in the timber of the stair tread was barely noticeable with the added bonus of the limed treads complementing the previously painted stair stringers. If your timber stairs are suffering from wear and tear, contact Brisbane’s floor sanding and polishing specialists and we can refurbish them to their original state.
