What not to Expect

It’s important to know whats not going to happen with your timber floor. It’s also our duty of care to ensure you aware of these factors before you order. All Coast Floors is happy to discuss these points in detail with respect to your situation

  • A furniture finish. Be aware of a floor’s pre-existing natural variations, defects or problems, these often enhance the final look.
  • If timber flooring is damaged from scratches, abuse, borer, stains etc, a coat of polyurethane is rarely all that is required to correct the problem, you may need to have the floor restored.

Stair Sanding and polishing

Having decided on the installation of a feature timber floor or the renovation of an existing floor (Mosaic Block, Parquetry Flooring, Overlay Floor) ensure that the style of timber flooring chosen is suitable for your lifestyle.

With this advice in mind, we have set out a few points for you to consider. .

  1. Your local environment (coastal, inland, cold, dry or humid).
  2. Timber quality & conditioning (acclimatisation).
  3. Installation – use an experienced flooring contractor.
  4. Sanding & preparation, prior to & between coats. Coating finish & suitability.
  5. Coating application techniques & system integrity.
  6. Finally always insist on a quality-flooring contractor who uses only superior Polycure coating products.

All Coast Floors can advise you on any particulars to do with your flooring choice for all Brisbane suburbs.

Preparation

Timber flooring is a natural product & will be influenced by its local environment. Awareness & correct preparation of the floor prior to coating will ensure the quality of the floor and its finish.

  • Confirm your requirements & expectations with your contractor. Ensure that the flooring involved is of suitable quality and properly acclimatised to its intended environment.
  • Complete all other building maintenance prior to coating floors. Unless correctly managed the activities of other trades will affect the overall finish. Foot traffic & the activities of other trades often introduce contaminants or foreign materials to the floor. These cause coating defects that require costly repairs such as re-sanding & coating.
  • Full curing of the floor will take 10 to 14 days. Attention to these relatively minor details will ensure that the flooring project is successful & its full potential reached.
  • Do not install carpeting or apply the final coat of paint to skirting boards prior to completion of the flooring project.
  • Prepare the site. Remove anything that may be an obstacle to the flooring works. Cover curtains, seal any draught points & air vents, clean dusty areas & fittings, have gas & electrical appliances disconnected. Ensure all food is placed in airtight containers.
  • It may be wise to arrange alternate accommodation, if possible for 24 hours to allow thorough drying of the floor & to avoid the possibility of exposure to unpleasant odours during the drying time.

The result will be a beautiful hard wearing floor that will last for many years.
