Higher Ground Floors is constantly looking at improving, with staff knowledge, continuing training and product understanding, we listen to our customers and their comments. One issue is dust that arises when sanding a timber floor, so at Higher Ground Floors we can offer the closest thing to true DUST FREE floor sanding. This is possible by using vacuumed piped suction to a mobile dust extraction unit, instead of using the conventional cotton bags catching the dust. The extraction unit allows a vacuum to be attached to the sander, there is a minimal amount that may escape but this is the best system any floor sander can offer so when comparing contractors; ask do they use cotton bags or a vacuum system.
Floor Sanding Coatings
At Higher Ground Floors our preferences is to use water based floor coatings. The advantages of these finishing products are the low in V.O.C (volatile organic compounds), therefore low in odour.
Another major advantage is water based coatings are fast drying, allowing you and your family to transit through these areas during the job progression.
Unlike traditional solvent based coatings, water based coatings are non-yellowing, which means the grain of the timber floor shows through with clarity and wont darken with time.
Higher Ground Floors has a number of coatings, in addition to the water based product for commercial and domestic floors, we can finish a floor in Tung oil base and most coatings come in a satin gloss or matt finish that you can choose or we can advise.
Higher Ground Floors also offers a staining service, which changes the colour of the floor. With comprehensive understanding of the staining products, we can stain the floor dark chocolate to liming it white, together with the knowledge we can give you the best results for your flooring project.
