Floor Coating Options Explained

  • Natural Coat

Your first option is a natural coat. It is water-based, 2K duo polyurethane. You can choose either a matte or a satin finish. It is Natural SR-5, it offers standard durability and is cheaper than Option 2 and 3. The only disadvantage is that it has a softer more, subtler finish so it’s not as durable as the others.

  • UV Hybrid

The second option is UV Hybrid. It is our most popular option because it is cheaper than Option 3, but double the strength of Option 1. It includes two coatings of Option 1 and a final coating with Option 3, making it SR-10 Family Grade durable. It is still cured with UV like Option 3 so you can move in immediately (Cured at the speed of light – literally!). We recommend this option for most people because it is a great balance between cost and durability.

  • UV Cured Polyurethane

If you are looking for the best option, this is it. UV Cured Polyurethane is a commercial-grade finish. It comes in a modern Matt/Satin finish.  It’s Commercial Grade SR-15, offers triple durability and you can move in immediately because it is cured instantly with industrial UV lights.   It is the toughest, most scratch resistant coating for timber floors today.  No other coating can compare to this.   If you want the best, you have found it.  It ticks all the boxes.  Its natural, non toxic, no smell and hard as nails.  You can have your cake and eat it, but it does cost a little more.

Our Floor Sanding Process

After the old floor coverings are pulled up (You can do this to save money),  we punch and fill nail the holes. Now we are ready to start sanding.

  1. Floor sanding starts with a coarse angle cut with the Galaxy floor sander to remove excess dirt or build up & bring the timber floor back to bare timber. They repeat this step with medium grade sandpaper angled back the other way.
  2. Then your timber floor requires a medium grit Trio to get the floor 30% flatter than belt sanding alone.
  3. We then use a fine sandpaper on the Galaxy in the direction of the grain to remove any cross-grain scratches.
  4. The next cut is with a fine Trio to remove any chatter marks left by the drum sander.
  5. To finish, FLOOR uses an Australian Polivac and an American Square Buff to finely finish the timber floor.
  6. We then apply the first coat , which is a quick dry, timber sealer.
  7. The 2nd coat usually is a non toxic, natural water based coating.
  8. The final coat is a Super tough, commercial grade, UV Cured Polyurethane.  See UV Hybrid UV above.

This delivers better results every time.  FLOOR are world-class experts, right here in Brisbane.

What is Floor Sanding?

Floor sanding is the process of sanding timber floors back to the grain in preparation for the polishing stage. This involves going back and forth over the timber floor with various grades of sandpaper to get the timber floor as smooth as possible.

What is Floor Polishing?

Floor polishing is done by applying a finish to the sanded timber floor. Traditionally, floor sanding companies used a polyurethane oil to create a polished look. However, no polishing is actually involved. Nowadays, floor sanders can choose from both oil and water-based finishes. The latest technology in floor polishing is using UV technology to ‘cure’ the finish so that it sets immediately. There is no toxic smell left, and it lasts longer than traditional methods.

How much does it cost to sand floors?

It depends on the size and what coating you choose. Price is based per M2. Tougher, longer lasting coatings like UV cured Polyurethane are more expensive than a home grade water based polyurethane.

How much does it cost to sand and polish floor boards?

Regardless of the floorboards used, it depends on the total floor area and whether or not you are going to have a coating applied. Price is based per square metre.

Can I use a hand sander to sand a floor?

Yes, technically you could. However, it would take a very long time.

How do you polish floorboards?

You paint three layers of polyurethane on them.

How much does floor sanding cost?

Sanding is about half of the total cost of Sanding & Polishing. Price is based per m2.

How long before you can walk on polished floorboards?

Usually 24 Hours for normal Polyurethane, but with UV cured, you can walk on them immediately after they are cured with UV lights.

Do you have to sand floors before polyurethane?

Yes. You always must sand first to make sure the surface is clean and flat.

How do you polish timber floors?

You paint three layers of polyurethane on them. It is not a typical polishing or buffing action as you would use for a metal surface. Polishing timber floors is actually applying polyurethane to it to make it shiny.

How long will it take to sand a floor?

It depends on the size, but usually 2 days. Day 1 to sand and apply 2 coats. Then the final coat is applied on Day 2.

How long does it take to polish floorboards?

After sanding you can apply a sealer coat and a top coat on day 1. Then on day 2 apply the final coat.

How much does it cost to have hardwood floor stained?

Price is based per m2. Usually an additional $33m2 on top of sanding and polishing.

How many coats of poly should I put on my floor?

It’s important to apply no less than three coats of polyurethane.

Which is better oil based or water based polyurethane?

It depends on usage. Oil based is tougher but toxic. Water based is softer but non toxic. If you want the best of both worlds, then go for UV cured polyurethane. It’s tougher than Oil based and non toxic like water based.

Can I use a hand sander to sand a floor?

Yes, but it would take a very long time.

Do I need to strip the wood before sanding?

Technically the sanding phase takes care of stripping it. But if there are any floor coverings like carpet, tile or vinyl, they would need to be removed first.

Do I need to sand between coats of polyurethane?

Only between the second and final coat. Modern day sealers don’t need to be sanded back.
