Renovating your Queenslanders’ floors

Renovating your Queenslanders’ floors
The Queenslander is a much admired and sort after home that can be found in most parts of Queensland as well as northern New South Wales.

There are a number of eras and designs of the Queenslander ranging from the 1800’s to post WW11 homes dotted all over Brisbane, varying in architecture as time progressed and the average size of the urban house block decreased.

There are however a couple of unique features all Queenslanders share, the most iconic of which is the verandahs and the timber floors.

Over time timber floors deteriorate due to the wear and tear of high traffic causing dirt, grit and hard soled shoes including high heels to scratch the surface. Furniture is a constant enemy of timbers flooring with continuous movement. Harsh sunlight can change the colour of the timber and water damage or white ant can cause rot. It is therefore important to maintain your floors and bring them back to their original glory with a fresh sand and polish by a professional Floor Sander.

A professional floor sanding and polishing company will prepare the surface by filling holes and punching nails. Most floor sanding companies these days operate state of the art equipment including high tech dust collectors. Once the floors are sanded back, your choice of stain and finish will be applied.
