          Hardwood Floor Sanding & Refinishing procedure: Refinishing hardwood floors is a very detailed work and requires many years of experience that deals with and tackle many variables and factors in the floor environment including old wood floors vs. new unfinished wood floors, misture issues ,age and the type of hardwood floors your dealing with; such as Pine hardwood floor, Oak floor, Ash floor, Maple floor, Mahogany floor etc., and most important the proper pressure and techniques when using a heavy drum sanding machine that if not used properly it could damage the wooden floor,that why you should look for an experienced and professional floor re-finisher. On the surface, hardwood floor refinishing is a multistage process. First, you must examine the floor for raised nails staples, carpet tacks, and the like and then sand the old finish off of the floor starting with coarse faze; moving up to fine and finer coarse drum sanding. Next, after you clean up and vacuumed all the dust created by sanding, it’s on to staining. Sometimes, the staining step is skipped to leave the floor with a “natural” look or honey color. Finally, we move on to sealing and finishing the floor with polyurethane which could be of water or oil base finish. After first coat is applied and dry, a second coat and maybe a third if desired is applied.

              Sea container – How we removed the wood floor

              This may not be ideal for everyone, but it worked for our purposes. If you do this, you will want a good dust mask or better yet a respirator, and a good drill. I burned up a newish seldom used Ridged Electric drill on this job before getting an expensive heavy duty drill for it. Surprisingly, my Ryobi battery operated 18v stood up fairly decent to this job as well. But it did need a lot of recharging of the battery, even the new lithium battery needed quite a bit of recharging. The plan is to reuse the wood for outdoor gates and such.

                          How to sand a hardwood floor – dustless refinishing

                          For a Free Estimate, contact Amherst Finishing at (716) 907-2746 Today! In this video Tim is using a Lagler Hummel to drum sand the floor, equipped with an Oneida Vac cyclone dust pre separator with HEPA filter. The sander and separator are connected to a Blastrac 1219 HEPA vac placed outside the home by a main 2″ and 1.5″ vacuum hose. The combination of this hardware creates an extremely high quality sanding job with hardly any dust whatsoever. After the 8″ hummel belt sander has been used to sand the bulk of the floor, Tim will either use our Clarke Super 7R or Lagler Unico Edger to sand the edges starting with 36 grit up to 120 grit sandpaper. To feather out the edger cut marks into the belt sander area, Tim will use a 6″ Rigid Random Orbit Sander with 80 and 100 grit sandpaper, which also is attached to this same vacuum system. The corners will then be sanded by hand, and then the whole floor sanded again with a Cherry Hill Upright 4-pad random orbit sander with 120 grit sandpaper to eliminate any possible chatter marks left by the hummel. Depending on the degree to which the customer wants the stain to soak in to the wood, Tim may sand the floor a final time with a Clarke square floor buffer with either 120 or 150 grit sandpaper to close the grain of the floor up a little more. The finishing process will be shown under another one of our videos!

                            side return extension – design and build in 8 weeks

                            www.sigma-builder.co.uk This video presentation profiles the work required for the design and construction of a single storey side return extension. Sigma Builders was approached to design and build a new extension and to refurbish the existing ground floor living space of this Victorian London mid-terrace house. Sigma Builders has an integrated design team to maximise the service we may provide our clients. Through close communication with each Client from the project’s inception we can best develop a detailed CAD proposal of the agreed design and then translate this seamlessly into a finished built product with our skilled team of builders. The Client in this instance had a specific brief to demolish a poor quality existing lean-to and open up the general internal living space on the ground floor of the house. A Planning Application was submitted by Sigma Builders to the local authority Planning Department for approval. Building Control was also notified of the anticipated programme ahead of Works commencing on site. Party Wall Awards were required between the owner and adjoining neighbour for the excavation of new foundations. Sigma’s skilled team of builders quickly and accurately erected the supporting structural walls of the new side return extension. The extension was built using high density engineered blocks with good thermal value and compressive strength. A damp proof course above the foundation line ensures that moisture from the ground cannot rise up into the

                              Recent tests show that a glass fiber wallpaper in conjunction with a special Bayer adhesive made from polyurethane can preserve the collapse of building walls in the event of an earthquake. This innovation could be a lifesaver for people living in earthquake areas.
