low sheen timber floor finish

Satin timber floor

There was a time when customer expectation was that a polished timber floor must be glossy, and the glossier the better. Now, however, the lower sheen satin timber floor finishes are very popular. There are a few reasons for this.

Firstly it can be argued that the satin timber floor finishes are more forgiving. Any super glossy floor is going to show up dust and wear and tear on the timber floor more than a lower sheen satin polyurethane alternative. Satin is the best option if you have a very old and rustic timber floor.

Secondly, I believe they just look better. The low sheen duller finish is now considered more contemporary and fashionable in new houses. The lower sheen satin presents the floor in a more natural circumstance than the glossy finish.

Thirdly if you have lots of glass in your house and sun hitting the floor, the lower sheen satin finishes are less reflective from sun glare.

Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane has sanded and polished numerous timber floors over the years, completing them with a satin polyurethane floor finish. If you are planning to update or renovate your timber floors and your preference is for a more natural low sheen look contact Budget Floor Sanding to discuss satin polyurethane and our other low sheen options.

Timber Floor Staining

Stained Hoop Pine Wooden Floors

Last year Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane sanded and polished the old timber floors at the White Chapel Kalbar wedding venue and their Black Hall Reception Centre in rural Historic Kalbar in the Scenic Rim. A year later the owners of White Chapel have added two residences to act as wedding accommodation for the quests or wedding party. Both of the residences are old Queenslanders that had rustic old Hoop Pine flooring that were in need of a timber floor restoration. The owner requested that the old hoop pine timber floors have a dark finish added to them. To achieve this the wooden floors were stripped back by sanding and then finished with a coat of Feast Watson Prooftint stain in the black colour. The timber floor was then sealed with three coats in a polyurethane satin finish. With all timber floor staining, the intensity of the stain can be altered, it all depends on how strong you want the colour of the wooden floor to be. In this case the customer desired a very intense colour and the stain was mixed accordingly.

As can be seen from the before and after photos, the transformation of the old hoop pine timber floor is remarkable. If your floors need re-sanding and polishing or you are thinking of staining your wooden floors darker, Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane has decades of experience in the floor sanding industry and a long list of happy customers. Contact us for a chat about your project or send us a floor sanding inquiry email.

Staining stairs darker

American Oak stair treads stained darker with white paint to be applied to the stair risers.

American Oak timber floors have become more popular around Brisbane lately, especially in homes where a Hampton style is desired. Recently Budget Floor Sanding completed the floor sanding and polishing of three sets of timber stairs in three new homes at Clayfield. The timber stairs had been installed with American Oak feature stair treads. The timber stair risers and stringers were to be painted white and the stair treads were sanded and polished, giving the staircase the Hampton look that the owners wanted. The client also requested that the timber stairs be stained a darker colour and this was achieved by applying a black Feast Watson stain to the timber stair treads, after they had been sanded. The timber stair treads were then finished with three coats of Loba water-based timber floor finish. The last coat applied, meets the non-slip R10 requirement that is now required by building regulations in Queensland for new timber stairs.

If you are thinking of changing the look of your old timber floors or staining your new timber floor, Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane has years of experience in staining wooden floors. Contact Budget Floor Sanding and find out what options are available for your floor sanding project

Raw looking timber floors

Invisible Protect creates a natural raw looking timber floor

Do you want your floor to look natural, like it is raw timber that has the appearance of having never been coated. If you don’t want your floor to look as if it has a plastic layer on top of the timber and for it not to change colour and yellow with age, Loba Invisible Protect is the natural looking timber floor finish for you.

The featured hardwood timber floor had previously been polished with a polyurethane coating that had yellowed with age, significantly altering the appearance of this blonde colored timber species. The owners did not like the orange looking colour of their timber floor and therefore decided to re sand and polish the timber floor using Loba Invisable Protect. The end result was a completely transformed floor that now looks like it is entirely natural. The coated timber floor now looks true to what the timber colour is when the wood is in its raw state.

Loba Invisible Protect is a water based timber floor finish that is as easy to keep clean as any vanished surface. Due to its lack of shine it also has a very good anti slip rating of R9.

If natural looking timber floors are the look that you desire, Loba Invisible Protect is the floor finish for your floor sanding and polishing project. Contact Brisbane floor sanders Budget Floor Sanding and we can answer any questions you have regarding this new and popular floor design trend.

Timber Floor Board Replacement

Water Damaged Hardwood Floor

Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane recently attended this home in Fairfield that required timber floor board repairs, followed by floor sanding and polishing. The spotted gum hardwood timber floors had suffered water damage to the floor due to waterproofing issues in the bathroom. Over time the water ingress had damaged the timber flooring. To repair the water damaged timber floor, all the affected tongue and groove flooring was removed and then it was replaced with the same species of wood, in this case Spotted Gum.

After the timber floor was repaired the entire downstairs floor needed floor sanding and polishing. The sanded and polished timber floor was then finished with 3 coats in a polyurethane satin timber floor finish. The water damage had also resulted in some of the timber flooring cupping, and this required extra attention with the timber floor being re sanded to make the floor flat. Water and timber flooring are certainly not friends, wooden floors need to maintain a reasonably constant moisture content and if this is upset the results can be dramatic.

Sanding and Polishing American Oak timber floors in Brisbane

American Oak Solid Timber Flooring

Our latest floor sanding Brisbane project was this new house in Balmoral. The home owners chose American Oak tongue and groove flooring in a wider 180 mm width. Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane was contracted by the builder to install the timber flooring. With a wide profile floor such as this the timber was fully glued to the substrate and then secret nailed. It was then also necessary to top nail the floor before floor sanding and polishing.

The owners desire was to then have the timber floor finished with a coating that would present the American Oak floor as naturally as possible. Loba Invisible Protect was the obvious choice to use. Loba Invisible Protect is designed to finish the timber floor in such a way that the floor almost looks like raw wood with no obvious coating on it. A timber floor finish in a very low matt sheen level is the best way to achieve this look whilst still protecting the timber floor with a coating. After the floor sanding, three coats of the wood floor finish was applied and this included the sanding and finishing of a matching American Oak open tread set of stairs. Contact Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane to find out the variety of timber floor finishes that we offer to suit your needs. Gloss, satin and matt wood floor finishes in water based and polyurethane and oil options are available to complete your floor sanding project.

Spotted Gum Parquetry Floor

New Spotted Gum Timber flooring was installed on the upstairs and downstairs levels at a recently built new house at Cannon Hill. A decorative Spotted Gum timber parquetry floor had been laid in the entry as a standout feature of this new home. It was the owners desire to have the wooden floor looking as natural as possible at the completion of the floor sanding and polishing project. To obtain the desired look the best timber floor finish to achieve this was a water based coating system.

Budget Floor Sanding’s water based finish of choice, is Loba and on this timber floor the low sheen mat, satin finish was used.

The timber floor coating used on the spotted gum provides a lovely soft lustre and being a water based finish the coating will be resistant to yellowing as it ages. As a low VOC product (volatile organic compounds) the smell of the product is very low compared to a solvent based polyurethane floor coating product. Polyurethane finishes will yellow with age and in time start to obscure the original timber colour.

Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane have been a reliable and trusted floor sanding and polishing company producing outstanding results for over 20 years through out all of Brisbane. Email or call Glenn for a floor sanding quote or any general timber floor sanding advice.

Timber floor renovation

Floor board replacement in a damaged pine timber floor

Often in older houses the timber floor requires repair as part of the floor sanding and polishing process. These floor repairs often involve floor board replacement and are a service which is also carried out by Budget Floor Sanding. This house in the Brisbane Suburb of East Brisbane had previously had a section of the pine wood flooring patched with a sheet of plywood. After removing the plywood and installing replacement timber floor boards in a staggered fashion to blend the new timber flooring with the older original Hoop Pine flooring, the floor was sanded back in preparation for staining.

Staining wooden floors

Stained Pine Timber Floors after Floor Board Replacement

Although the same Hoop Pine flooring is used, the new timber floor is much lighter in colour. As part of the floor coating process, the new timber flooring is then stained to blend it in with the original old timber flooring. A mixture of Feast Watson Prooftint stains are used in various ratios to achieve the best colour possible. Home owners often reluctantly resort to carpeting their damaged old timber floors as they are unaware that the damaged timber floors can often be repaired. Many old homes may have damaged portions of flooring that are capable of being repaired with floor board replacement and timber floor staining. If you are uncertain if your old wooden floors can be restored, email or call Budget Floor Sanding for an appraisal of your timber floors. You may be very surprised how fantastic your timber floors can look.

Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane has in recent weeks been busy with timber stair sanding and polishing. At the “Ison Collection” development in Morningside where there are 14 separate homes with a total of 27 sets of timber stairs, requiring floor sanding and polishing. These were Durian timber stairs which the architect had specified to be coated in “Feast Watson Floor Liming White”. The Lime washed stairs were then completed with two coats of Loba Water Based Satin Finish. To comply with Building Safety Certification, the timber stairs were finished with a Non slip floor coating.

Sanding and coating 12 sets of stairs at a six unit townhouse complex at Cannon Hill required the same floor sanding process, but a different look was achieved. These stairs are the same Durian wood but were finished with three coats of Loba Water Based Satin finish. Once again they were coated with the Non slip timber floor finish. It can be seen in the two photos how the same timber stairs can be coated and finished to vary appearances with the application of different timber floor coating. Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane sand and polish timber floors, stairs and timber decks. Need a Professional Floor Sander, contact Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane for a free floor sanding quote.

Satin Timber Floor Finishes with Whittle Waxes

Floor Sanding and Finishing with Whittle Wax

Both Whittle wax and Treatex are Hardwax oils. Hardwaxes are highly effective timber floor coatings that consist of natural plant oils and waxes that have been used for the protection and enhancement of timber for centuries. Whittle wax and Treatex products in addition to enhancing the natural beauty of timber are also non-toxic, eco-friendly and are extremely durable.

This house in the Brisbane suburb of Highgate hill had hoop pine flooring which had been previously finished in a polyurethane coating. With a desire for a floor with a soft natural luster, the owners decided to use the Treatex Hard Wax oil. After the floor sanding, two coats of the hard wax oil are applied with the wooden floor receiving a light sand between coats.

When ever Budget Floor Sanding uses this product we are always impressed by the beautiful soft earthy luster that is achieved. While the coating is not as hard wearing as a polyurethane finish, the patina it achieves look fantastic. If you would prefer to finish off your floor sanding project with a coating other than polyurethane, Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane can offer non-toxic timber floor finishes and water based timber floor finishes as well. If you would like more information on the timber floor coating choices available to you, Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane is glad to supply all the data you need.
