Floor Sanding and Staining of Timber Floors

Budget Floor sanding completed a large house in the Brisbane suburb of Hawthorne recently. The client who had recently purchased the house asked that the old hoop pine floorboards in this Queenslander be stained a chocolate brown color. Having received an indicative picture of the floor color desired from the client,  Budget Floor Sanding then made a number of stain samples. These samples were then shown to the client who then selected the most favored color. This process ensures that the client’s expectation of stain color is met, and then comes the time to stain we know exactly what the stain formula is.

After the completion of the floor sanding the stain, the coat is then applied to the floor. The next day after it has dried the first of the polyurethane topcoats is applied to the floor.

As can be seen in the before and after photos the transformation in floor color is amazing. Staining has certainly become more popular and the process using the Feast Watson range of Prooftint stains is user friendly and allows for many variations in colors.

    Hi Claire & Lawrie,
    the only way to deal with ghosting on the timber floor is to completely remove the existing finish and re-coat the floor. To stop it happening again you need to minimize the amount of direct sunlight hitting the timber floor as UV light is predominately what triggers the ghosting .
    Regards Glenn
