4 Things to Know About Your Floor Finishing Project


Floor Finishing New Home 

Whether in the construction of a new home or as part of renovations, the question of the choice of flooring is often food for thought, sometimes even a source of hesitation.

This is even more the case when it is a parquet floor.

It must be understood that when a hardwood floor is laid or restored (sanding, varnishing, oiling), this has certain consequences.

However, it is a sustainable choice, a real investment.

That's why it's important to get information before making a decision.

I have gathered for you my best advice regarding the choice of flooring to help you in your approach. Good reading!


1- A Factory Varnished Wood Is Not Harder 

Wood suppliers and flooring manufacturers now offer high quality products.

Their processes make it possible to plane, sand and vitrify the planks optimally.

This gives so-called "prefinished" floors, solid wood and in different species such as maple, birch and ash.

As the finish is cooked in the factory, the uniformity of it is perfect.

That said, they are not more resilient than old hardwood floors refurbished with quality products.


2- Old and New Floors: The Same? 

To this common question, I would answer: yes and no.

Let me explain.

The visible surface of prefinished or engineered floors is made of "real" hardwood, like that of old floors that were varnished once installed and were still solid wood.

Engineered wood floors contain only hardwood veneer and are less "alive" (heat, moisture).

Once on the ground, we recognize the floors prefinished by the angled grooves that are present between each of the boards.


3- Sandblasting Does Not Correct Everything 

I usually tell my clients that sanding does not change the nature of a floor.

By sanding it, we just expose it more and show it as it really is.

Sandblasting has the effect of highlighting the grain of the wood, but also its imperfections that may be natural or not.

I remember the case of a rustic maple wood floor that had been dyed white; the client wanted to change his appearance and leave it, this time, natural.

From the beginning of sanding, all the blackish spots naturally present in this wood species appeared.

It was therefore necessary to dye the wood to restore a more uniform appearance.


4- The Finishing Of a Floor Takes Time 

At Selection Buff and Coat, we are real perfectionists.

We use proven techniques, we use the best equipment Bona and we apply high quality products in each of our projects.

The whole philosophy of the company, based on passion, patience, meticulousness and method, is in harmony with the first requirement of our work: to perfectly restore a floor or a hardwood staircase requires time.

Some people will say, "I understand your philosophy, but I only want to get an acceptable result, without having to invest too much time."

To this assertion, I will answer that sanding, dyeing or varnishing a parquet must always respect rules, established techniques, otherwise the final result will always be disappointing.
