Wooden Floor Sanding Norwich Norfolk
After Sanding and Junckers Baseprime
We were asked to complete a sand and re-seal of this pine wooden floor.
This lovely pine floor had been hidden under a carpet for years and was discovered by the current owners. We were instructed to complete a full sand and re-seal of the floor and fill the gaps to reduce under floor draft. As the floor was slightly cupped and there were remnants of carpet adhesive we began sanding on a 50 grit belt diagonally to the grain of the wood. This procedure ensures the floor is flat and clean of any dirt. The floor was then sanded along the grain of the wood using a 50 grit belt, an 80 grit belt, finishing on a 100 grit belt. The edges were sanded with our Lagler Flip edge sander using a 60 grit disc, a 60 grit disc, finishing on a 100 grit disc to ensure uniformity. The gaps between the boards were filled with Lecol 7500 resin and the dust from the sanding process to ensure the colour is the same as the floor. Gaps that were wider than 3mm were filled with pine wood slivers. Once all adhesive from filling the gaps was removed the floor was thoroughly vacuumed. We used Junckers Baseprime as a primer before using Junckers High Performance water based polyurethane lacquer.
“Conrad fixed and restored our floorboards and they look brilliant. My partner thought they didn’t need doing but now that they are done he is amazed the difference it makes. It looks like a new house! It is insulating the house a lot better now that all the gaps are filled in.” – via testimonial site
