Durability of timber flooring

Solid timber flooring isn’t just a beautiful addition that completes the look of your home no matter what style you have, it is much more. Did you know that timber flooring, once installed will last a lifetime? That’s how durable timber flooring is. Even a floor that has been mistreated in the past can be sanded and refinished to give it a second lease of life and many more years of service.

You get what you pay for with and unlike other types of flooring, like vinyl and carpet; you will never have to replace your solid wood floors. Would you rather choose to keep on replacing your floor again and again, which can cost you more or settle with a timber flooring that can last throughout the entire generation of your family? The choice is yours. For practical purposes, timber flooring is a great flooring option, especially for allergy sufferers as dust and dirt doesn’t get trapped in your floor.

Australian hardwood floors

When choosing timber flooring, Australian hardwood floors are a great option. They are known to withstand the harsh climate of the area where they were originally grown. A popular choice for architects and interior designers is the Jarrah when aesthetic and versatility is concerned, Marri for lovely colours and Blackbutt. With the many choices of Australian hardwood floors, you can be sure to find something that will suit your taste.

Timber flooring has been around for hundreds of years, which means one thing – they have withstood the test of time. Plus, combined with the technology today, they become more durable and hard wearing.

When should I seal my deck?

Hardwood_deckingSeal your deck every year. Having your deck sealed annually will help keep its gorgeous look for years to come.

Follow the 5 easy tips to extend the life of your deck,

  1. Sand any rough spots
  2. Sweep clean all dust
  3. When to reapply deck sealer
  4. Apply deck sealer
  5. When should I seal my deck?

Sand any rough spots

Before you start cleaning, make sure to remove the scratches, lumps or bumps on the surface of the board making it smooth ready for sealing. Use a fine sandpaper to sand any splintered floor surface. Check for any damaged or rotten boards to know if needs repair or replacement.

Sweep clean all dust

Sweep the entire deck with a soft broom to clean dust, dirt and any debris above from the boards. You could also use leaf blower for loose dirt or debris that maybe hiding between the boards.

When to reapply deck sealer

When do you need to reapply your deck sealer? Every 12 months is a good rule of thumb but depending on the conditions you may need to do it more often.

To determine whether to seal or not, pour a small amount of water on a deck surface of your deck; if the water beads up in droplets then you don’t need to reapply deck sealer in that area of your deck. If the water soaks into the deck, then you will need to reapply the same type of sealer you have used previously; after the cleaning process.

It is very difficult to change from oil based sealers to water based sealers or vice versa with sanding your deck back to bare wood. The old saying of oil and water don’t mix really is true for deck sealers.

Apply deck sealer

Follow the instructions on the back of the can for your particular type of deck sealer.

Try to prevent people and pets from walking on the deck while it is drying, which depending on the weather may take a day or two.

When should I seal my deck?

Sealing your deck is like applying moisture to your skin, it stops the wood drying out and keeps your deck in great condition for many years to come. You should reapply a sealer to your deck every year to help prevent damage occurring to your deck. Or if the weather conditions have been harsh or the deck has not be sealed for a while you may have to reapply more often.

Need new decking boards or a whole new deck?

West Coast Timbers have a whole range of timbers you can choose from. We have a larger variety of timbers than Bunnings so chances are we will be able to match your existing deck if you need to do a repair.

Can you change the colour of your hardwood floor?

timber floorYour hardwood floor starts to look yellowish and you don’t like it at all! Well, it’s natural for hardwood flooring to yellow, darken or lighten overtime, depending on the wood species and the exposure to sunlight. There are many reasons why your hardwood floor starts to change its colour. Constant exposure to sunlight and the age of your floor could play a big role.

Can you do something about it?

Your hardwood floor is subject to change its colour after a while, but it doesn’t mean you can’t prevent it. Floor experts recommend moving furniture and rugs occasionally to allow your hardwood floor to age evenly. Surely, you don’t want to look at your floor and see two different shades on both sides? While you can ensure your hardwood will have the same colour, you can also change the colour of your hardwood floor.

Is it possible to change its colour?

Yes, you can. Many homeowners may not realise it yet, but you can change the colour of your hardwood by refinishing your floor. You can go light, dark or red tones or choose a tone anywhere in between. When refinishing your floor, you can stain your floor in a shade that you like.

When staining your floor, always do a test first. Remember, different wood will accept stain differently. Don’t worry because testing your hardwood floor with stains will not damage it as they will get two more sandings. The important thing here is to check the effect of stain on your hardwood floor and see other colour options before finalising your choice.

Can you change the colour of your hardwood floor?

The answer is a definite “yes”!

If your flooring is really old and damage is already done and you need to replace boards or whole sections give West Coast Timbers a call as we will sell you the exact amount of timber you need. West Coast Timbers can custom cut flooring to suit your needs. Call 9720 2561 week days to discuss your situation and requirements.

How to keep your decking looking good?

Hardwood_deckingYou’ve invested a lot of time and effort into your deck! So, it’s no surprise you want to keep it looking good for as long as you can – to enjoy many years of entertaining. Luckily, it’s fairly simple to maintain a deck and keep it looking beautiful.

Protection is the key

To keep your decking looking its best, it needs to be cleaned regularly. However, if you want your deck to last longer, you need to protect it. Don’t wait for your deck to start deteriorating before you do something about it. Preventative maintenance is a very wise idea. Before a problem arises, prevent it!

It’s extremely important to protect your deck once a year by using a decking cleaner and a decking stain, oil or protector. If it’s looking really old and weathered, you will need to use a decking restorer first before applying the products.

There are 3 types of products that will protect your decking:

  • Decking protector. This makes your deck water proof. Don’t worry, applying a decking protector won’t change the colour of your deck at all because it is translucent in colour;
  • Decking stain. This is available in a variety of colours. This makes your deck weather proof and gives it a semi opaque finish; and
  • Decking oil. It penetrates deep inside the wood replacing its lost natural oils while leaving a subtle colour that enhances the natural beauty of your wood decking.

Each of the above provides different levels of protection. Don’t let your deck look worn out and weary! Keep it looking fresh and new, so you can hold a deck party at the drop of a hat, without worrying about how tired it looks.

How to protect your timber floors this summer?

timber flooringYour timber floor is tough, durable and beautiful but it still needs a bit of TLC. Now the weather is warm your floor will be exposed to a large amount of foot traffic, with people moving in and out all the time. It’s important that you take good care of your floors.

Floor maintenance should be done all year round but when the weather is lovely you really don’t want to stay inside and do house work.

There are many factors that can cause your floors to get damaged and most can be prevented.

  • Keep a consistent temperature
  • Clean your floors
  • Take off your shoes
  • Use entry floor mats

Keep a consistent temperature

When the weather is hot it is tempting to whack on the airconditioner full bore but this is not good for your flooring. Sudden temperature changes can cause wood planks to separate or spilt. When using your air conditioner, avoid turning your cold up and down to protect your floor against separation and gapping. Allow the temperature to come up slowly. Close your curtains in the morning before the heat start and help prevent the sun from coming in, in the first place.

Clean your floors

Sweep, vacuum and mop your floors. Do not let the dirt piled up! Dirt, sand and grit can get trapped in your shoes and scratch your flooring.

Take off your shoes

Before entering your home, ask everyone to remove their shoes. Shoes are one of the most common ways for tracking in outside dirt.

Lay entry floor mats

By having entry mats on the outside of your doors you can help to prevent the dirt coming into your home. Laying floor mats in high traffic to your floor areas like hallways can also prevent wear and tear on your floor. Make sure you vacuum your mats regularly, take them outside from time to time for a good shake and let the sun freshen them up.

How to protect your timber floors this summer?

If you use these tips all year roundyou will be able to enjoy the great outdoors this summer and not be stuck inside doing too much house work.

Are you a DIY person and need wood for your next timber floor or replacement pieces? Contact West Coast Timbers for your timber flooring needs. We have huge range of Australian woods you can’t find elsewhere – we mill our own timbers so you save.
