TIMBER FLOOR POLISHING
MAKING OLD FLOORS LIKE NEW
There’s something about a lovingly restored timber floor that really adds depth and beauty to a room. Star Flooring Concepts will ensure that your home radiates the warmth that only a professionally restored wooden floor can create.
We can bring your old floors to life, or give your brand new floor a beautiful glow. We offer a variety of finishes and textures to compliment your décor and lifestyle – not only will your refinished wood look great, but our coatings will resist wear and tear in high traffic areas, protecting the wood beneath.
WE WILL TAKE CARE OF THE WHOLE PROCESS FOR YOU
We will move & store furniture neatly for you, if you desire we will carefully wrap & protect your furniture from any possibilities of fine airborne dust.
As a precaution we use the latest, low dust technology equipment in the sanding and preparation process to protect your property. We will seal doorways, cupboards & draws, & any gaps that may otherwise allow fine airborne dust particles to travel.
We will also guarantee after each days operation that a full clean up is carried out. At the completion of your new floors we will dress your rooms and move furniture back into place. We want you to take advantage of our complimentary furniture to floor protection covers.
We want to make your whole experience easy & pleasurable!
No matter what the condition of your floor or the type of timber used in its construction, we can turn it into a truly stunning polished floor. Your wooden floor can be polished to a natural finish or choose from a range of coloured stains and oils that will not fail to impress your family, friends, clients and visitors.
Older floors with cracks can be trowel filled with the appropriate colour. If there is any significant movement in the floor we will professionally carry out the required repairs.
You can stay in your home during the floor sanding process, however, access to the floor area being worked on will be restricted due to the need for a certain amount of drying time each day. Sanding and finishing is typically a four day process, but you should allow for five as the weather conditions can come into play and impact the drying process.
One of the best ways to beautify your home is through flooring upgrades, it is one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to improve your home’s value. We will help you choose from a variety of commercial-grade floor coating systems to create the perfect look for your home that you are looking to beautify. So whether you are looking for a highly durable, UV resistant coating for your outdoor patio or a decorative high-gloss floor coating for your interior timber flooring, we have the perfect solution for your floor coating.
A coat of oil based poly will take 8-12 hours to cure, and a coat of water-based poly will take around 4-6 hours to dry.
We recommend that you wait at least 72 hours after the final coat is applied, and then place protective felts under all furniture. Large area rugs need to be kept off the floor for the first 30 days – you can use a breathable perforated rubber pad if you wish to place rugs. We will give you some protective felts for your furniture; the perforated rubber carpet pads are available at most carpet stores.
Products we can offer ranging from nontoxic, hard wearing environmentally friendly water-based products to oil and polyurethanes. Finishes also come in varying levels of sheen from high gloss to mat. We use the latest technologies to ensure the best finish and minimal disturbance to you.
