HOW TO REFINISH RECYCLED FLOORBOARDS

STEP 1 – SAND THE FLOORBOARDS

Start by using a drum sander which can be usually found at any tool and equipment hire company. The drum sander is used to remove any old coatings on the floorboards and also to make the floor level. Best practice is to use the drum sander with a bag with good ventilation. In most cases you sand going with the grain of the floorboards.

STEP 2 – EDGE THE TIMBER FLOORBOARDS

To access tight and hard to reach areas of the floorboards typically a handheld edge sander is used. Always choose sandpaper of the same grit so that it matches the same as you used previously with the drum sander.

 

STEP 3 – APPLY FILLER

For a great looking timber floor patch up gaps, cracks and holes with wood filler that is similar to the shade or colour of the floorboards. Then another round of sanding is required.

STEP 4 – FINISHING THE FLOOR

After the sanding of the floorboards is completed its time to stain the floor. It’s best to have a few samples before staining as to find which stain and look you want to achieve. A paint roller can be used to apply the coats or a special applicator which can be purchased at a hardware store.
