This new house under construction in the Brisbane suburb of Sherwood had new secret nailed Blackbutt flooring and Blackbutt stairs laid throughout the entire house. Blackbutt flooring is a blonde colored hardwood and a popular choice as it has a lighter tone of color. However, when the blonde colored hardwood is finished with a polyurethane timber floor finish, the lighter pale tone of the timber is gradually lost to a yellow/orange color as the polyurethane yellows with age. This is a result of UV light affecting the polyurethane timber floor finish.
Water-based timber floor finishes offer more resistance to the finish changing color as the water-based is considered non-yellowing. After floor sanding and polishing the blackbutt timber floor, the finished colour of the wooden floor should not significantly alter with time. Therefore the natural-looking finish of the floor coated with the water-based timber floor finish will be maintained with age.
The Water-based timber floor finish of choice for Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane is the German brand Loba. Timber flooring, when finished with the lower sheen matt/satin coating, has an awesome natural appearance that sits well in traditional and contemporary style homes.
If your polished timber floors have yellowed over the years, Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane can rejuvenate them with a non-yellowing water based timber floor finish. Contact Budget Floor Sanding Brisbane to discuss your floor sanding project.
