A wood floor would normally take several passes with up to four grades of abrasive paper until we are happy with the finish. This process is dependant on the type of wood being sanded and the degree it has been soiled.
Most of the time your old floor will look best finished displaying its natural colour. But there are times it can be improved or changed to suit your taste with the use of wood dye prior to applying the floor finish. We have various different coloured dyes and can often carry out little sample patches on your floor to help you choose while work is in progress.
We have some professional flooring finishes to apply to the floor next. Our varnish is water-based, which gives a clear finish and enhances the look of the floor without adding any colour. Our oil is also clear, but will provide a slightly richer tone to the finished wood.
We need to apply 3 coats of varnish or 2 coats of oil at this stage, usually at daily intervals. Once the floors are sanded and cleaned we can apply the first layer of finish. After the coat has dried, and if it is water-based, we lightly abrade the surface to cut back the raised wood grain and then apply a second layer of finish. This process is repeated until the desired effect is obtained.
