Wooden flooring enhances the interior on a bigger level. But when it comes to repairing, things can be a bit tricky. However, wooden flooring is resilient and long-lasting and we can rely on it for years. All it requires is good care, handling, and occasional repairs.
If you are about to hire the professionals for wooden floor repairs in Melbourne, it’s time to understand their technique to repair your floor. This will ensure that you are hiring the right team for this job and you will get satisfactory results.
So shall we?
Take Out the Damaged Boards
Whether the floor has been damaged because of pet stains, termites, or water, some boards can’t be saved. In such cases, replacing the boards is the only choice. However, it’s up to professionals whether the entire board is required to replace or staggering the joints will do the work. In the second technique, the patches can seamlessly blend with the rest of the floor.
Your experts might use the below tools for this task.
- Circular Saw
- Trim Pry Bar or Cat’s Paw
- Wood Chisel
- Brad Nailer
- Multi-Tool (recommended)
Install New Boards
Now that the damaged boards are taken out successfully, it’s time to fix the fresh boards on the floor. They might have boards of different sizes, shapes, and textures. If you want to remodel the entire floor, this is the right time. However, the boards you choose must fit on your floor.
When the boards are in place, refinish to have the seamless match. Refinishing process takes care of uneven surfaces. If only a few boards have been replaced, refinish them for a smooth look. The domestic or commercial Floor Polishing Melbourne is done at this point only if you ask for it.
Apart from the fact that experts are repairing your floor, you must take care of some aspects for the sake of completeness of work.
- Make sure that the wood is of same species age as of your wood otherwise they will not match (if getting replaced). There are three types of woods – red oak, white oak, and heart pine.
- The wood must be of the same age. Woods have transformed over the decades. Therefore, it’s crucial to use the woods from the same era. You simply can’t put a red oak from 1990 next to the one from 1799. They both will look different and can ruin your interior.
- Some houses have subfloors and some don’t. If you didn’t find any subfloor (or did find one) when the boards are taken out by the experts, don’t panic. The procedure of repairing and replacing both is the same.
Alright, that’s it! That’s how a professional team perform wooden floor repair in your home or office.
