Reasons That Set Us Apart!

Our Before & After Images

Floor Sanding: Pine vs Oak

Did you know that balsa wood is classified as one of the hardest woods in the world? However, because of its lightness, you wouldn’t use it for flooring. You need a wood that’s dense and can bear the traffic of everyday footfall in your property, but whether that’s a softwood or a hardwood may be down to a number of factors, including budget, appearance and practicality.

Pine vs oak

Both pine and oak are extensively used for flooring, and both have their pros and cons. Oak, a densely compressed hardwood, is exceptionally hard wearing and a great choice for floors that expect to see a lot of traffic. However, it has a very distinctive grain pattern that some find overwhelming, and it is expensive, as all hardwoods are.

Pine, on the other hand, is more plentiful and less expensive. The world is full of heritage pine floors that can look beautiful after floor sanding and finishing. However, as a softwood, it will bear the scars of furniture and pet claws.

Sanding for perfection

Refinishing a softwood floor requires a great deal of patience and it must be sanded with the utmost care to avoid damage. Pine floorboards are usually hammered into the subfloor with nails, so you’ll need to both take the time to countersink each one and be careful with your initial grit, as it will tear through the finish and into the wood itself. In fact, it may be better to use floor sanding specialists to take your pine floorboards back to the raw wood.

By contrast, sanding oak and other hardwoods can be much more forgiving, even though it’s an equally labour-intensive process. You can use a lower grit to make quick work of stripping the old finish and, as long as you always move with the direction of the grain and never start or stop the sander when in contact with the floor, you should end up with a smooth and professional finish.

Finishing like a pro

Because it’s much easier to damage, pine should always be finished with sealer, followed by up to three coats of oil-based polyurethane for a robust and hard-wearing finish. Oak, on the other hand, can be finished with oil or quick-drying, water-based polyurethane. Ultimately, however, whether you choose a hard or softwood for your flooring, both will benefit from regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them looking their best.
