FAQS

Gap filling & Finishing services provided by trained experts in Floor Sanding Stevenage​Do you have any questions at all concerning floor sanding and finishing in Stevenage? Of course you do, so we’ve drawn up this list of some of the ones that have been put to us during the course of our 20 years in this business. Don’t hesitate to contact us  with any others, or if you need to know more. 

 


WHEN DO YOU CONSIDER A FLOOR TO BE BEYOND REPAIR?

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding StevenageWe’ve been doing this work for 20 years now and in our experience there are very few wooden floors that are beyond repair. Unless your property has been gutted by fire or swallowed by a sinkhole, your floorboards should be fine despite all appearances to the contrary! The paint and grime that makes them look so unappealing will usually be their best protection, as a matter of fact. 

We’ll use our cutting-edge sanding machines to strip off these top layers of filth and expose the lovely fresh wood underneath. It’s like watching a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis, and the wood will then be ready for us to apply a stain and varnish treatment or any other finish you care to choose. 

 

 

WHAT'S THE BEST FINISH?

Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding StevenageThe finish that we apply will be down to you. We have many eco-friendly finishes to choose from, such as lacquers, waxes, oils and varnishes. Stains are also very popular and instead of using a coloured varnish we apply transparent varnish on top of a suitable stain. This preserves the colour as we add new coats. The coloured varnishes you get from DIY stores may be more convenient but they are unsuitable because the colour darkens as you add coats and the final shade is unpredictable.​

There are advantages and disadvantages to every type of finish, although except in heavy traffic environments like museums and restaurants it doesn’t make a great deal of difference which ones you go for. 

An oil finish, for example will penetrate deep into the wood and look rich and golden but you’ll have to re-apply the oil fairly regularly. On the other hand, when an oiled floor starts to get patchy you can carry out local repairs. With a wax or varnish finish the floor doesn’t need such regular maintenance but when patches do eventually appear you’ll need to get the entire floor sanded down and the finish applied again, as local repairs will not be an option.

Give us a call  for more information about this, but it will all be explained to you in your free on-site assessment and during the course of the work, should you choose to go ahead with it. 

 

 

​​HOW LONG BEFORE THE FLOOR IS FINISHED?

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding Stevenage​A normal floor in a suburban house for instance will take a day to repair and sand down, a day to apply the finish we’ve decided on and a further two or three days to allow the finish to completely cure the wood. If we find that the floor is in an unusually poor state of repair, the time frame may be a little wider, but you’ll know all the details after we’ve done the assessment so there won’t be any surprises on that score.​

 

WILL THERE BE A LOT OF MESS AND DISRUPTION?

Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding Stevenage

We use the very latest technology to keep the mess to an almost negligible amount (literally a dust-pan full, max!). You probably have visions of masks, dust clouds and flying slivers of wood, but this is not the case. Our sanding machines are designed to retain the dust in sacks, so you won’t actually see much of it, if any at all. 

The Stevenage floor sanding and finishing team SG1 will also make sure that other parts of the property are sealed off, and they’ll completely tidy up before they leave.
