Timber flooring adds class and ambiance to any room in which you install it. Different types of wood, colours and styles are available for this flooring today. To receive the optimal results from this type of flooring, though, you must select the best in timber floor installation, sanding and polishing. If any of these elements are of poor quality, your results will be less than desirable. Let us examine each one of these procedures to learn how they affect the final outcome of your floor.
The Importance of a Quality Installation With Timber Flooring
When professionals properly install a timber floor, all the boards are flat in a secure manner without any gaps in between them on a quality subfloor. In addition, if any nailing is necessary all nails are below the surface to ensure that they do not catch on shoes or hurt bare feet. The installers also pay attention to the perimeter of the floor in order to fit the wall trim over the edges in the appropriate manner.
What Sanding Brings to the Final Results
Sanding creates a completely smooth surface that is void of splinters. Also, this step is necessary before professionals can perform the polishing step that follows next. The professionals will start with one grade of sanding material and change to finer grades during this process to wind up with a desirable result in smoothness.
How Polishing Influences the Timber Floor’s Appearance
Once the sanding stage is complete, polishing takes place to provide a shine to the floor and to enhance the timber’s grain pattern. This transforms the matte finish to the shiny one that most property owners strive for with timber flooring. Professionals carefully perform this step with the right techniques and equipment to ensure that it brings about the ideal results.
