Quicksand & Polish can replace damaged or missing timber boards in your Solid Tongue and Groove Timber floor.
Below is an example of a Pine Floor where an owner had an unlicenced contractor replace some boards in Brisbane for them.
As you can see, it was not a very competant job. Note the big gaps between the boards and the knots in the timber.
There is nothing wrong with knots in boards in a floor that is consistant, however this floor was clean of knots and now they had been introduced to floor with the boards being replaced.
We removed all the offending boards and replaced them with new Pine Boards. Whilst New Pine Boards are quite light, even white in some cases, they deepen up quite quickly and go a beutiful honey golden colour.
We don't recommend staining Pine Boards as it tends to look like fake Tan. Rather it is better to leave them deepen and darken naturally. People understand new boards.
When replacing Timber Boards, its best to do a complete section. If you look closely at Pic one there are only 7 Boards wide that need replacing. However in Pic 2, you may notice there were some single boards that needed replacing also. Rather than have some piano tooth section, we removed 9 boards. The extra two boards were part of the original Timber floor, and we recycled these and used them to fill the single board section.
Picture three shows the result. You have one big section of new floor. But note in the background, where we recycled the two extra boards, they have blended perfectly.
The new section as it ages will tone down. Whilst it will never be exactly the same as the old section, it will be natural, clean and clear. Stained boards will never look anything like a Natural one.
They look Fake, and can be streaky, and they do not age or wear well. Its far better to leave the new boards natural. Enjoy the pictures of our Board Replacement in Brisbane.
This is our attempt of board replacement. Sure we used new boards and there is a colour difference. But people understand and accept this. Its obvious these are new, Solid Strong boards. That's a Good thing.
