Expansion gaps of 10 mm should be provided at all walls and other fixed obstructions, which are parallel to the run of floor boards.

We use latest dustless machines with efficient dust bags to control more than 98% of the dust that is created. We recommend covering book shelves and electronic equipment.

Sanding provides a method for smoothing an installed floor, compensating for unevenness of the subfloor. Additionally, sanding is used to renew the appearance of older floors. No beveled edges, as seen in some pre-manufactured prefinished floors, will be evident in a sanded floor. Sanding using successively finer grades of sandpaper is required to ensure even stain penetration when stains are used, as well as to eliminate visible scratches from coarser sandpaper grades used initially.
FloorCraft will work with you to determine the best finish for your wooden flooring. Consideration is given to the way your floor is used and amount of traffic to the area. Generally, there are three main types of finishes that are available.
1. Solvent based Polyurethane,
2. Water based Polyurethane and
3. Tung/Modified Oil.
All these finishes are applied in 3 coats, each product has its own distinct advantages. At FloorCraft we use and recommend the use of water based polyurethanes and oil based sealers for new floors.
We do not recommend the use of Solvent based polyurethane or other products that may cause edge bonding. As timber flooring continues to move throughout its life due to changes in atmospheric conditions, we advise the use of products that allow the boards to move independently of one and other. Oil based sealers, modified oils and some water based polyurethanes will allow free movement of the boards whereas solvent based polyurethane often bonds the edges of the boards together which may result in 4 or 5 boards being glued tightly together and excessive gaps appearing on either side of these boards.
