Birch Wood Floor 

Commonly called cherrywood, yellow birch, in addition to being one of the best-known noble woods in Québec, stands out for the variety of its uses and for its commercial value. Birch wood is reddish, very strong, very hard, veiny, and lasts a long time; it’s almost like oak. Its red colour becomes darker by leaving it on the ground for two or three years after it’s been cut. It’s often used for floors, as it’s veiny and has a pleasant colour. In addition, it takes polish well and is easy to work with.

For the varnishing of your birch wood floors, our company, which specializes in varnishing hardwood, uses high-performance products that will live up to your expectations and varnishes that will effectively protect your surface. Our specialists in varnishing birch wood floors recommend choosing water-based varnishes: they have a low impact on air quality during evaporation. A study has demonstrated that a good water-based varnish is more resistant to wear than a Crystal-type coating. 

Birch is a large tree found in the woods of temperate countries in Europe, in Mississippi, and in Canada. The natural colours of the birch tree give it a unique appeal. Its grain, which is similar to that of maple, is very popular in the manufacture of furniture and floors, as it’s a durable material.

The dust-free birch wood floor sanding is carried out in five steps, which is the secret to the success of L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal and its team of master sanders. 

The first step that our experts carry out is to clean your floor before beginning the sanding of your birch floor. The second step involves repairing it, if necessary. The third step is to sand your floor with our dust-free floor sanding system. This system is used to sand your floor completely in a short timeframe without releasing dust particles into the atmosphere. Then, the fourth step involves sanding the edges and corners of the room. Finally, during the fifth step, a coat of primer is applied to your perfectly sanded (and possibly stained) floor. Two coats of the finish that you’ve chosen will also be applied. The finishing step carried out by L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal and its master sanders is very important, since the staining and varnishing of your birch wood floor will give a new look to your floors that were faded or damaged.

The lifespan of a birch wood staircase coating varies depending on its owners. The more attention they pay to it, the longer it will remain in good condition. Some people will have to restore it after only five years, while others won’t have to do it for ten or fifteen years. It’s a question of use. 

If you have to rely on specialists in birch wood stair and railing restoration, please note that L’Artisan du Plancher Montréaland its master sanders have extensive experience in this field to give them back all the charm they had before. 

As a birch wood floor sanding contractor, restoring a birch wood staircase involves several steps: stripping the old coating, sanding, and applying the new finish. 

There are several possibilities for creating a new coating for your birch wood steps and railings: 

  • Apply a varnish to prevent future scratches and shocks. 
  • If you want a more natural birch wood staircase, we’ll apply an oil or a wax to your staircase. These two products require more regular renewal than varnish. 
  • You can ask us to paint your birch wood staircase in a single colour or your risers and steps in two different colours. This will give a different cachet to your staircase. 
  • If your staircase is often used by children or elderly people, you can dress it up by attaching non-slip strips to it.
