Stairs Stripping & Sanding
Restoration of stairs is a relatively slow and labour intensive process due to the fact that only smaller sanding tools can be used and most of the work needs to be done by hand. However, once restored, the stairs can become a stunning centrepiece in any home.
Like any wooden flooring, stairs can be sanded several times to restore the beautiful natural look. It is a shame to cover the stunning appearance of any wooden floor with other floor coverings like carpets, as nothing really will be as beautiful as the natural wood.
Once sanded, stairs can be stained with your desired colour or just sealed with clear varnish or oil. There are extremely hard wearing wood floor sealants available today for areas like stairs where a high level of foot traffic is expected, so you should not worry about the durability of the floor finish.
Our standard service includes refinishing of steps only. Occasionally we can undertake restoration of side boards as well, but in many cases, during the period of their existence, they have been painted a number of times. During this time imperfections, joints and cracks been filled with paint and fillers, which will be difficult to completely remove. This can spoil the uniform appearance expected after the restoration.
Steps repairs and replacement of nosings which have been damaged is also included in our service. This may be required in order to extend the safety and live of your stairs.
Or even better, if you are one of the happy owners of a pine staircase, you can forget about all the additional hassle around the maintenance. As you know, we offer sanding and finishing, which can even include lacquering and staining the staircase in any colour you'd like!
