Damaged timber floor boards are a common occurrence in older Brisbane homes. Timber floor board repairs are regularly undertaken as part of our Brisbane Floor Sanding and Polishing Service.
WHY DO TIMBER FLOOR BOARDS NEED REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT?
Following are some of the possible reasons timber floors, on occasion, will require timber floor board repairs and replacement.
Expansion and contraction of the wood due to the changes in its moisture content is unluckily a course of events that do not leave the timber floor without causing damage. The most common challenge that is faced is the concave and convex deformities and loosening of the boards with their adjacent ones.
When, on one hand, timber floors add beauty to your house, but on the other hand they are also prone to get influenced by excessive exposure to sunlight. This leads to fading of the wood with time ultimately the floor will look uneven. This can be corrected by replacing the boards or staining them with the same color as of surrounding, unchanged boards.
Scraping Furniture Across the Ground
Furniture scratching the wood floor is a common problem and is reversible through the use of proper techniques and materials. This can be prevented by lifting the furniture instead of dragging it while moving it from one place to another, use of area rugs, or installing furniture pads to avoid marks left when furniture is placed for a very long time.
How We Do Our Job?
We can repair or replace floorboards damaged by termite and borer infestation and stain the replacement timber to a similar color to the original timber floorboards.
Our Color Matching Skills
Floorboard replacement is carried out in such a manner that no evidence of the replacement will be apparent when viewing the floor. You will be amazed by our careful color-matching skills.
Similar colored timber floorboards are sourced and when color variations occur, wood floor staining is performed to blend the new floorboard with the original surrounding ones. Staining of the whole area is avoided as it may increase the cost of the work and also increase the time required for the completion of the whole process which includes the drying time.
Source of Floorboards
Older original wooden floorboards can sometimes be sourced from timber demolition yards, but this can be time-consuming, troublesome, and a more expensive option.
