Our Floor Sanding Perth Process

Sanding existing timber floors in Perth

Sanding newly installed timber floors in Perth

1. If renovating, all other trades need to have finished before sanding starts. This is to ensure the perfect finish. If other trades are on site we cannot guarantee the finish due to the exposure to sand, grit and chemicals. Before we start and power must also be available in all rooms. 1. Wood floors need to be laid 3-4 days before sanding occurs.
2. Furniture and carpet should be removed. Dust protect other rooms, with plastic sheeting over openings or by taping up doorways. 2. If on a building site, power needs to be connected. Our machines draw too much power and front power poles will burn their motors. We need power to be available in all rooms, along with adequate lighting.
3. Nails in the floorboards are punched. This is done so they sit below the timber. We then fill the holes and knotholes, as required. However, we do not suggest filling the gaps between floorboards as wood expands and contracts in different temperatures. By filling the gaps you remove the space for movement and this can result in cupping/peaking. 3. All other trades need to have finished before sanding starts. This is to ensure the perfect finish.

4. Next, we sand with a finer grit sandpaper. Edgers sand the corners and tricky parts that the main sander cannot reach.

Initially, we apply a sealer which takes about 30 minutes to dry.

Then we apply the first coat of product. We allow this to dry overnight.

6. Final Coat

Once dried, any imperfections or nail holes that were missed will be filled. We then buff back the first coat. Finally, it is vacuumed and a final coat is applied.

Your floor is now finished and looks incredible. You will need to give your new floor time, so be patient and wait for the coat to dry. After about 24 hours, you will be able to walk on your new wood floors with socks and admire the latest feature in your home. Furniture can usually be replaced after 4 days.

Stained Black Jarrah Floorboards

New Age Timber Floors was asked to transform this Jarrah floor in South Perth. The owners wanted the Old, Reddish, Jarrah floorboards, stained black. To start, we sanded the floor. This time around the only floors to be sanded and stained were the bedroom and ensuite. The owners want the rest of the floors to be completed at a later date. The next step was to change the colour of the Jarrah floorboards to black. Mark did this by using a stain, on a test patch, to achieve the desired colour. He then, stained the floorboards and finished the floors with a Matt finish. The transformation is impressive. The owners were extremely happy with the final result.

Knitted Blackbutt Floorboards

New Age Timber Floors installed Blackbutt floorboards for this project in Willetton. The owners had a games room added to the back of the house and were renovating their kitchen. They wanted their timber floors to flow seamlessly throughout their house. Due to the renovations, the new floorboards had to be knitted into the existing floor. To do this, we ripped up and cut some of the exiting floor so we could "knit" the boards together. We then installed the rest of the wood floor. Finally, we sanded both the existing and new floorboards and coated them with a water based finish. This was to ensure a consistent finish across the floor. The floor looks like one uniform floor from the dining to the new games room. Therefore, the owners were very pleased.
