Closing The Gaps In Your Sanded Floors
GJP Floor Sanding Surrey is committed to improving both the look and utility of your wooden floor during the sanding process. Filling the gaps between exposed floorboards can help reduce drafts, prevent dirt from building up in the cracks and improves the look and feel of your floor, giving a smooth and continuous finish. GJP Floor Sanding currently uses three techniques for gap filling which include: resin filler, wood slivers, and our unique ‘Flexi Fill’ option.
The most common technique for filling gaps is to mix wood dust from the sanded floor with resin to form a paste that is pressed into the gaps and then sanded when dry.
Gap filling using resin mixed with pine dust is only recommended for gaps up to 3mm wide, loss of the resin gap fill may occur through the natural movement of the floorboards. GJP Flooring cannot be held responsible if this occurs. Never wet mop you floors, always use the correct cleaning products to clean your floors. This is the least expensive method of filling gaps, but we believe it is also one of the least effective.
Solid Wood Strips
Using pre-made wood slivers to fill the gaps between floorboards gives a premium finish and is less prone to cracking or falling due to board movement than resin/pva filler.
Wood slithers are made from hand cut reclaimed pine and gives the effect of a solid wood floor. The wood slivers are dipped in PVA glue and hammered into position between the floorboards before being sanded back creating a continuous appearance.
Really pleased with the end result. Would highly recommend the company for their professional approach and high standard of workmanship.
Thanks it looks amazing. Well done to all the guys who did a splendid job on time. Cleared all rubbish aways as well. Highly recommended. – 30/11/2010
The work was carried out efficiently with a professional service. Where the job ended up being more complex that first envisaged the GJP team invested extra time to sort things out. We were very pleased with the work done. Rachael Atkinson 30/10/2010.
I should like to say that we are very impressed by the work done – the floor looks incredible and also the clear up job afterwards was very professional. There was no mess at all and it was dust free. (I’m not sure how you managed that). Oliver Gillespie 10/12/2010.
