Tasmanian Oak in Mt Eliza

Tasmanian Oak Mt Eliza

Here's a Tasmanian Oak floor with a little bit of everything. Firstly, the main room had been extended by a couple of metres, and rather than use second hand boards the builder opted to use brand new material, which is fine, but when your working with a fifty plus year old house there's every chance that the newer boards are going to be a fair bit lighter in colour than the existing flooring. This job was no exception. To help counter the stark difference between the old and new I applied a coat of Wattyl quick drying seal as the first coat. This quick drying seal has a fairly dramatic bleaching affect on the timber which toned down the older boards to help it all blend in a little better. The second and third coats were Wattyl 7008 two pac polyurethane, giving the floor that great look and toughness, which is needed, particularly in the kitchen.

Along with the extended section there was also a big area of old glue and water marks in the kitchen/dining room. All of the glue sanded off without too much fuss and only a couple of dark rings remained around some nail holes where they had rusted right through the boards.

All up a terrific floor. With a big roomy living space and the transition between the old and new not being too noticeable.

Clint.
