This old timber pine floor in a New Farm house had many timber floor boards which had been previously infected with timber borer. This often compromises the structural integrity of the timber floor board and also renders the floor board unpleasant in appearance. Firstly the timber floor is sanded back and any damaged floor boards are identified for replacement. The old damaged floor boards are then cut out of the timber floor and replaced in such a fashion so as to leave no indication of replacement. The pine timber floor boards were replaced with the same type of timber. When new timber is used it will always be much lighter in colour than the original old flooring, as seen in the first photo. New timber flooring is predominately used for floor board replacement and repairs, as finding matching old boards is difficult and more expensive.
In conjunction with the coating of the floor, the replaced new timber pine floor boards were then stained to blend them in with the old floor colour. Remembering that timber is a natural product and there is always a variation in tones and colour in a species of timber. The result is such that the floor board replacement can hardly be noticed and the floor maintains its old floor consistency.
