WoodMaster’s wood floor restoration process:
- Step 1 – We carry out a free site survey and provide a full written estimate to present the best restoration options for your wood floor. After we’ve agreed on price we’ll arrange a suitable time for our work to be completed. Our team arrives on time and completes their work with as little disruption to your surroundings as possible.
- Step 2 – Our floor restoration process starts with a full sanding of boards to get rid of old oils and bring back bare wooden boards. Using our large industrial belt and planetary sanding machines we can make sure your board becomes smooth and flat, then our new 3 head machine is used specifically for new engineered boards (where belt sanders cannot be used).
- Step 3 – Once the previous sealers have been fully removed, including around all the edges up to the skirting boards, we use our dustless edging machines. Next our 3 head finishing machine will tackle any fine scratches created during the sanding process. Now the floor is then smooth enough to apply the sealer.
- Step 4 – Demonstration sample of finishes and stain options. Natural lacquer can be used for a brilliant, durable finish. We can also apply a stain to enhance colour if you would like to change the look of the wood completely. This can really give the floor a new lease of life!
- Step 5 – We apply a base coat to fill up the wood, which adds the first stage of protection.
- Step 6 – When the base coat has dried, we complete a light sand of the floor, removing any areas that prickle up from the base coat of sealer and preparing the floor for the finish.
- Step 7 – 2 coats of top finish are applied, which can be a 1 or 2 pack lacquer depending on the situation. Alternatively, we can apply oils when a change of colour or an enhanced level of smoothness is required.
- Step 8 – When dry, the floor will be ready for sign off. Furniture can be moved back, and after a few hours the floor is normally ready for light foot traffic with socks and slippers.
Where requested we can offer maintenance advice and aftercare products.

Depending on the type of wood and condition, excellent results can be achieved with our restoration services as we are bringing back a fresh new layer of the wood. However, an old Victorian pine floor will always look aged and have patina but this is often seen as a positive with the character of a period property.
The length of time required for the floor to dry depends on the type of product that is used. We will advise you once work is complete.
Yes, no problem. The sanding process will be selected so that we cut deep enough to remove the scratches and damage that is present. Also if Some holes and grooves are too deep to sand we can advise on a filing method that will improve the appearance of these areas.
Yes, we are happy to carry out a free demo on your wooden floor. The best way for us to do this is to bring one of the smaller dustless edging machines and sand 1 board x 1m of linear length. This will show the natural colour the wood returns to and we can then discuss which product is best to return the wood to the colour or look of your preference. The demo is also great as it can allow us to work out how many sanding grits and processes are required, which also helps with firming up a fixed cost for the project.
Depending on the level of damage and thickness of old surface finishes, most household projects under 50 sqm take 1.5 days. On the first day we can sand the areas and get the base coat on. This is left to dry and then we return the following morning to start applying the 2 top coats. Again, smaller rooms with furniture take longer, whereas bigger open spaces which are completely clear can be completed in a timely fashion.
Every job is different but during the free survey we measure up, do a free demonstration clean to show the results we can achieve, and from this we send over a full proposal for you to browse at your own leisure. We do not give prices on the day or put you under any pressure for an answer there and then
All products used are within the manufacturer’s guidelines, and where applicable your flooring manufacture own brand products can be used.
We are happy to give a ballpark figure from pictures and room sizes, as this can help customer budgeting on renovation projects if they are unsure whether to restore or replace, but ultimately we would need to carry out a full survey and demo before any work can take place.
