Floor Sanding

As a qualified floor sanding specialist I can offer floor prep, floor sanding, floor coating and general advice about the floor sanding process.


Before you lay timber, carpet, vinyl, cork, tiles or any other overlay flooring your substrate needs to be prepared so that it is a smooth, clean and flat surface.

This means that any floor repairs that need to be done must be completed by your builder first. Then I can come in and sand the particle board/plywood/substrate before the overlay is applied on top.


We sand and finish both your new wooden floors and your existing wooden floors. We can sand all types of timber flooring, including but not limited to:

  • hardwood timber
  • cork flooring
  • parquet flooring
  • particle board
  • plywood
  • And more, contact us!

Before I start sanding, if there are any nail heads that need punching or holes that need filling I epoxy fill or acrylic fill these. I can also use oxides in the epoxy to match the colour of the timber.


1  Floor Sanding Process 1 Belt Sanding

Belt sanding the floor with the required grit to remove old coatings

If it is a new floor this first cut is to get the floor flat and free of lips between boards.

2  Floor Sanding Process 2 Edging

Edging the floor is sanding the existing coating off the edges from where the belt sanding cannot reach (as it is a large machine).


3  Floor Sanding Process 3 Finishing

After belt sanding and edging to the required grit the finishing machine is used to smooth off the floor. This ensures there are no belt sanding or edging marks left on your floor.

4  Floor Sanding Process 4 Vacuum

The vacuum is one of our main tools in the floor sanding process. Between every machine used vacuuming ensures less dust particles in the air and therefore on your floor. This reduces dust in the finished coating.

5  Floor Sanding Process 5 Coating

Depending on your choice of floor coating, this is the final stage in the process.

Depending on which product is used dry times and the number of coats do vary.
