Do you Have large Gaps on your Floor?
It is possible to give your Parquet Block Floors or Hardwood Flooring or Pine Floorboards a much more attractive overall look if all the major Gaps are filled.
There are two main methods that are commonly used for the filling of unsightly gaps in wood flooring.
The most popular (and easiest) method is the Dust & Resin Mix. This is where the fine dust generated during the floor sanding process is mixed with a resin to form a paste, which is then worked into the gaps. This method is undoubtedly the most commonly used form of gap filling used on wooden floors by Floor Sanding Contractors.
The second method – “Solid Wood Fillet Strips” is when usually reclaimed Pine strips are used, these strips are covered with PVA glue then knocked firmly into the gaps, left overnight to dry, then the excess material is chiselled away before being Sanded off.
This method of Gap Filling is a much more involved process overall, but the results are usually aesthetically better and also more permanent as the Fillets tend to expand and contract with the timber.
