The Sanding Process
Here at Floor Sanding Partners, we begin your floor transformation by preparing your floor so that it is ready to be sanded. We will check for any protruding nails and staples and ensure that all of these are removed or punched down level to the floor. Next we check for any loose or uneven floorboards by walking over the floor and making visual checks. Any boards that need our attention are first lifted before securing into place to ensure that we do not interfere with any pipework or electrical wires underneath. We use Tongue Tite screws which are very strong and nearly invisible to the eye due to their small screw head to fix boards into place.
Fire Hearth Removal
Do you have an unsightly concrete fire hearth that you would like gone? No problem! We can remove this for you.
We start by hammering out the existing concrete base. we then supply and fit joists where necessary and then use our reclaimed pine floorboards to stagger fit these to cover the gap and disguise the border.
Judging the level to sand the floor to is something that we are experts at as over-sanding the floor can damage and weaken it or give it an uneven finish.
We use a wide range of quality abrasive sanding belts and discs when sanding your floor, each with a different 'grit', this refers to how harsh the belt or disc is.
Starting by using a harsh 24 grit abrasive to sand all over the floor, this process is then repeated using 60, 80 and 100, then finishing off with a 120 grit fine abrasive to give your floor a nice smooth, even finish.
Repair or Replace Floor Boards
Not all floor sanding companies will consider renovation of staircases as they are notoriously hard work!
However here at Floor Sanding Partners, staircase renovation is all in a days work for us.
We are able to use smaller dust free machinery to sand the treads, but the risers must be done by hand using a small precision hand scraper blade. For this reason you can typically expect some wood shavings and a small amount of dust. This same blade is also used to work on hard to reach areas such as corners.
We can repair or replace any damaged floor boards to give your flooring new life and longevity.
We use reclaimed pine floor boards to try to best match your existing flooring.
