Removal of Glue from a Tasmanian Oak Floor in Frankston

Sanding Glue Off Timber Floors

This particular Tasmanian Oak floor in Frankston, is one I'm extremely proud of. In many cases, home owners get told that glue can't come off, or that the boards will be ruined and not worth even having a go at. However, I'm a believer in at least giving it your best shot, and at least making the effort to get the glue off.

If we find that your boards are particularly badly damaged, after the glue is gone, you now have the choice to either re-cover them, or perhaps replace them, or, you may even have me stain them to hide any damage. 

In most cases, we find that the boards are fine. In fact, as it is with this floor, they are pristine. So, if you come across a heap of glue and gunk on your floor don't panic there's every chance the boards will be fine.

This floor is worth looking at given the amount and thickness of the glue. Once it was finished there was not one trace of glue or a blemish anywhere to be seen.

Getting all set up to tackle this bitch of a job

This glue is a thick, black tar like substance.

Along with removing glue we also effect some repairs to the Tasmanian Oak boards

The sandpaper we're using here was a super coarse 24 grit paper

It's a combination of sanding, using kerosene and scraping away that makes it all happen

Once the bulk of it is sanded away we can start to see just how good the floor boards are

With the bulk of the glue gone we can now get 'Big Bertha' into the game

With a bit more kero and 24 grit on Bertha the rest of the glue gets sanded off.

See - brand new looking floor boards that have been protected by the glue all their lives

With all the glue gone and the Tasmanian Oak fine sanded we fill the nail holes....

                                          The first coat of the 2pac polyurethane is being rolled on                          

The coatings make the grain in the Tasmanian Oak boards pop

It's pretty hard to believe that we started with a floor covered in glue. Amazing, huh!

                       The whole floor all came together as one, without a trace of it's ugly past   
This here iS the final coat of 2pac polyurethane as it was applied
