    Floor Sanding

    We restore timber flooring, no matter what condition its in.

    A durable flooring option, timber will last a long time but it needs to be taken care of. Timber will eventually show signs of wear and tear especially in high traffic areas of a home or business. Protect the timber and keep your floors looking great with a restoration every 3-5 years, depending on the use of the property it may need it sooner such as a cafe with a lot of foot traffic every day.

    Floor sanding involves floor preparation to ensure all nails are sunken, any damaged timber is removed and replaced and then it is sanded back using high grade equipment by a skilled floor sanding contractor. It is important that the contractor or who ever is doing the work uses precision and a sound technique to ensure that no damage is caused to the timber because the machine strength is one to be used with caution.

    Firstly, high grit sandpaper is used as appropriate, to remove layers of timber in an efficient way, subsequently reducing the grit and producing a finer, more precise removal of timber. The numbers go up, the finer the grit. For example, a contractor may begin with grit 24, then they will finish with 120+ to reveal a smooth, even finish.

    We bring our floor sanding services to the Scenic Rim, including Tamborine, Boonah, Beaudesert, Jimboomba and of course, the Gold Coast.

    Floor Polishing

    The polish that is used when restoring timber flooring is a vital piece in completing the restoration. 

    Sanded timber is vulnerable when bare and must be coated with a protective sealant to prevent from moisture penetrating or staining the timber as well as an scratches. 

    It is advised to vacate the house when floor polishing is underway (trust us when we say you would have wanted to vacate in the sanding step due to the noise and mess), the odour of such varnishes can be unpleasant and it is strongly recommended to refrain from stepping on the surface, even if it feels dry to touch, until FULLY cured. 

    This will ensure the best, most durable outcome for your shiny timber flooring.

    Staircase Restoration

    There’s no point refinishing timber floors at your Gold Coast property if your stairs aren’t done.


    Similar to indoor floor sanding and polishing, depending on the condition of your stairs, the service you need will either be a light sand or a full sand back to timber. Sanding back to bare timber also gives you the opportunity to change the stain or colour on your stairs which has a significant impact on overall feel of your space. 

    Once the timber is sanded back, a stain, varnish and other protective coatings are added to seal and protect the newly sanded timber.  Your floor sanding contractor can talk you through your options when it comes to sealants and protective products, but in a nutshell, products are designed to either penetrate and preserve your timber, or create a protective film over the wood instead. With a range of different coating products we can suggest something to help you achieve your desired look to compliment the rest of your home.

    6 Wonderful Benefits of Restored Timber Floors

    Restores Appearance

    Floor sanding removes the top layer of wood which may be worn, damaged, or stained, revealing the fresh, clean wood beneath. This process can drastically improve the look of a floor, bringing out the natural beauty of the wood grain and making it look brand new.

    Cost-Effective Option

    Sanding and refinishing an existing timber floor is far more cost-effective than installing a new floating floor on top. When done correctly and using quality coatings you can expect up to 10 years of beauty and good service from a refinished timber floor.

    Increases Durability

    By removing surface damage such as scratches, dents, and indents, sanding helps to strengthen the floor’s surface. A well-sanded floor is more resistant to wear and tear, extending the lifespan of the wood.

    Enhances Room Hygiene

    Sanding removes old layers of finish that may have trapped dirt, allergens, and bacteria. A freshly sanded and sealed floor is easier to keep clean and hygienic, reducing the buildup of allergens.

    Improves Lighting

    A sanded and refinished floor can improve the light reflectivity of a room, making spaces appear brighter and more inviting. This is especially beneficial in rooms with limited natural light.

    Increases Property Value

    Well-maintained wooden floors are highly sought after and can increase the market value of a property. A freshly sanded and polished floor can be a strong selling point for potential buyers.

    Gold Coast Floor Sanding FAQs

    What types of timber flooring finishes are there?

    When it comes to refinishing your hardwood floors, choosing the right type of coating is essential to both the appearance and longevity of your flooring. Here are a few of the most popular types of coatings we provide, each with its specific benefits and considerations:

    Polyurethane Coating

    Polyurethane is a favourite due to its robustness, available in both water-based and oil-based forms. Water-based polyurethane dries quickly, emits less odour, and doesn’t alter the wood’s colour. Oil-based polyurethane, while highly durable and adding a warm amber tint, takes longer to dry and has a strong odour during application.


    Varnish is excellent for enhancing wood’s natural grain and comes in various finishes from glossy to matte. It’s moisture-resistant, making it suitable for wet areas, but it can yellow over time and may crack under significant impact.


    Lacquer provides a hard, durable finish with a high level of sheen, drying very quickly. However, its fast drying time can make application challenging, leading to potential streaks, and it requires professional spraying due to strong chemical content and fumes.

    Oil Finish

    An oil finish penetrates the wood to enhance durability and maintain a natural look, easy to touch up and less prone to scratches. However, it’s less resistant to spills, requires more maintenance, and has a longer drying time.

    Each coating type offers distinct benefits and trade-offs, catering to different preferences and needs in terms of traffic levels, aesthetic goals, and maintenance willingness.

    Is solvent based polyurathane more durable than water based polyurethane?

    Yes, traditionally, solvent-based (or oil-based) polyurethane has been considered more durable than water-based polyurethane, especially in terms of resistance to wear, chemicals, and heat. Solvent-based polyurethane forms a harder, thicker coating, which provides a higher level of protection. This makes it particularly suited for high-traffic areas and floors that are likely to encounter more severe use.

    However, water-based polyurethane has been significantly improved over the years and now offers a level of durability that is often more than adequate for most residential applications. It has several advantages that make it a preferred choice in certain situations:

    Faster Drying Time: Water-based polyurethane dries much faster than solvent-based polyurethane. This can be a significant advantage when you need to apply multiple coats or have limited time for renovations.

    Lower VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds): Water-based polyurethane contains lower levels of VOCs, making it less toxic and better for indoor air quality. It emits a less pungent odour, which dissipates more quickly.

    Non-Yellowing: Unlike solvent-based polyurethane, which can yellow over time, water-based polyurethane remains clear. This makes it ideal for lighter wood or any application where maintaining the original color of the wood is important.

    Easier Cleanup: Cleaning up after applying water-based polyurethane only requires soap and water, whereas solvent-based finishes require chemical solvents for cleanup.

    In summary, while solvent-based polyurethane is generally more durable and better suited for extremely high-wear environments such as commercial applications, modern water-based polyurethane offers more than sufficient durability for most residential applications and has several practical and environmental advantages.

    How long does it take to sand and polish a house?

    The duration required to sand and “polish” (apply a finish to) a house can vary significantly based on several factors such as the area size, floor condition, type of coating used, and environmental factors. On average, for an entire house, the process could typically range from a few days to a week. This estimate includes everything from preparation (sinking nails, repairing damaged sections of flooring etc), sanding, and cleaning to applying the chosen finish and allowing it to dry sufficiently before the floors can be used again.

    To get a more accurate timeline of your floor sanding project, contact us so we can inspect your space and provide you with an estimate.

    Do I need to sand my floorboards back to bare timber?

    In the context of floor restoration, the necessity of sanding your floorboards back to bare timber depends on the condition of your floors and the results you wish to achieve. Sanding to bare wood is essential if your floors have old, worn finishes or if the surface has become uneven, as this allows for a fresh and even application of new finishes. It’s also crucial for effectively levelling the surface and repairing deep scratches, dents, or other significant damage.

    Additionally, if you’re planning to change the colour or type of finish, removing all previous layers ensures that new products adhere properly and display their true colours. However, if your floor’s current finish is intact and the underlying wood is in good condition, a lighter sanding might suffice. This less intensive approach can refresh the appearance of your floors without the need for complete sanding.

    If you’re looking to revamp your floorboards, check out the different floor restoration options. You may also contact us so we can inspect your floors and provide professional insights.

    How much does floor sanding cost on the Gold Coast?

    The cost of floor sanding on the Gold Cost area depends on several factors including area size, floor condition, type of timber, and choice of finish, and whether the floor requires just a light sand and recoat of if it requires a sand back to timber and recoat.

    If you want accurate pricing, contact us so we can discuss your plans and provide you with a quote. We can offer a breakdown of the costs based on your floor sanding needs.

    Do you have any timber floor maintenance tips?

    Maintaining timber floors properly is essential for both preserving their beauty and ensuring their longevity, whether at home or in commercial spaces.

    Regular cleaning is crucial in maintaining your timber floors at home. Sweep, dust, or vacuum regularly using a soft-bristled broom or a vacuum with a soft floor attachment to remove dirt and grit. Use a slightly damp mop and a timber-specific cleaner to avoid damage. Protect floors from fading with curtains or blinds, maintain consistent indoor humidity to prevent warping, and clean spills immediately to avoid stains. Use felt pads under furniture legs to prevent scratches and consider refinishing your floors every few years depending on wear. Place rugs or mats in high-traffic areas to reduce wear. For more information, check out this post on how to maintain residential timber floors.

    On the other hand, maintaining timber floors in commercial settings requires more rigorous care due to increased traffic. Daily cleaning with a soft-bristled broom or a vacuum and mopping with a microfiber mop and pH-neutral cleaner are essential. Address spills quickly to prevent hazards and damage. Use commercial-grade mats at all entry points to reduce dirt and moisture, which should be frequently cleaned or replaced. Apply durable finish coatings suitable for high traffic and check and replace protective pads under furniture regularly. Limit sunlight exposure with window treatments and schedule regular floor inspections and professional deep cleanings to preserve the floor’s durability and appearance. Check how to maintain timber floors in commercial spaces to know more.

    Can I stay in my home during the refinishing process?

    It is often advisable to stay elsewhere during the refinishing process due to the need for an empty floor space, fumes from the finish, and the noise from the sanding equipment. If staying off-site isn’t an option, it may be possible to perform the job in two sections depending on the layout of your home and spaces you require refinishing. If in doubt please give us a call and we can find a solution for your situation.

    What is hardwood floorboard polishing?

    Polishing hardwood floors involves applying a finishing product over the surface of the wood to enhance its appearance and protect it from wear and tear. This is typically done after cleaning and can help restore the floor’s shine. Regular hardwood floorboard polishing helps maintain the protective layer that wards off scratches and scuffs.

    How do I know if I need hardwood floor refinishing?

    If your floors look dull, and have significant scratches, discolouration, or water damage, it might be time to refinish them. Also, if the finish is worn off in high-traffic areas, refinishing could restore their look and durability.

    You can also test the condition of your floors by pouring a tablespoon of water on a floor section that gets a lot of traffic. If the water forms droplets on top of the floor, the coating is still in operational condition. However, if the water soaks into the wood, it’s time to refinish your hardwood floor.
