Budget Floor sanding recently completed the timber floor renovation of an old house at New Farm. This work was completed for one of our regular customers, a Brisbane building firm. This was a particularly old house with the old Hoop Pine flooring nailed with old hand made crown head nails. Some floors are ideal for before and after photos and this timber floor restoration was certainly one of them. The first photo shows the floor at the commencement of the floor sanding work, the tongue and groove flooring was very uneven, rough and aged. Pine wooden floors like this require considerable sanding to even them out and to present them in the best possible condition by the end of the floor polishing project.
This floor required the full sanding process and while the end result might aptly be described as rustic flooring, it now can be seen with an appearance fitting for a heritage Brisbane home of this age.
This pine floor was finished with a satin polyurethane coating, the low sheen finish being appropriate for this old home. Satin timber floor finishes enhance the beauty of the old rustic wooden floor without over exposing any of the imperfections that old timber floors collect over time. Once the furniture and floor rugs are returned, this antique timber floor will add to the ancestry of this beautiful old home.
