Budget Floor Sanding was recently engaged to floor sand and polish this set of open tread timber stairs. The client was keen to maintain the light pine color 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 color. In order to help hide this discoloration, the stair treads were finished with an Enviro Pro water-based coating in which a liming solution was mixed. After two coats of this whitewash solution, the color 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.
