Is your floor prefinished?
To determine if a floor is made of prefinished or untreated wood, you have to examine the contour of the wooden slats. If you see V-shaped notches between each slat, it is a prefinished floor. This type of floor is factory-treated before being installed: the slats are covered by several coats of varnish using a mechanical process. Even with professional equipment, the thickness of the finish makes sanding them much more difficult than an untreated floor that was varnished on site. If you weren’t the owner when this floor was installed or if you’re unable to determine the nature of the floor, you can select “I don’t know.”
Hot water radiators require greater precision when working around them. Measure the length (in feet) of each cast-iron radiator and add these figures up.
Your floor has likely sustained a few injuries over the years. Sometimes, a repair may be necessary before carrying out the floor sanding. For example, if there’s a nicked wooden slat in the living room or if you’ve knocked down a wall and want to add the missing slats, you should state the total surface area to be repaired by adding up the number of square feet of the two isolated surfaces. N.B. To calculate the number of square feet, simply measure from the ends of the wooden slats on each side to form a square. The surface area of each square will give you the total number of square feet to be repaired. The adjacent photo will help you understand the method to use to calculate the number of square feet.
It is not suggested to fill the spaces between the boards. Wood is a living material that expands and shrinks with changing seasons. The wood pulp will tend to come out of the floor more or less long term. So, this work is not guaranteed.

The steps are subject to more pronounced wear and tear due to frequent foot traffic. It’s best to sand all the steps at the same time to obtain a uniform finish. Add up the number of steps to be sanded by counting them one by one.
The nosing is the part of the floor that announces the beginning of the staircase. It’s a molding used to imitate the front of a step so that there’s continuity between the floor and the staircase. A nosing can also be found on the landing that separates two staircases or on a mezzanine floor. Calculate it in linear feet.
Square balusters are easily recognizable, since they’re found in slender and refined staircases. This type of baluster has flat, square, and/or rectangular surfaces, which makes sanding them easy. A square baluster will not have any rounded shapes.
Turned balusters are often found in country-style staircases. These balusters have rounded and more detailed forms, with wood that has been worked and sculpted. This type of baluster requires more time to sand due to the variety of the relief present in the material.
It’s possible to modify the colour of your original floor using a stain. We offer a range of several different Pratt & Lambert stains. It’s also possible to create a personalized colour. Our colourists will help you choose the perfect stain! To choose your colour, please visit Colobar at 357 boulevard des Laurentides, Laval, QC H7G 2T9, phone number: (450) 667-7200, website: www.colobar.ca.
The stain must be applied to a sanded wooden surface, just before the varnish stage. If you’d prefer to keep the natural colour of the wood, our artisans will apply the varnish right after the sanding.
Is there glue on your floor or staircase?
To detect traces of glue on your floor, you have to look closely for rough substances, beige, white, or black stains, and a dry appearance. Glue residue is often due to the presence of a carpet or linoleum having been installed above your hardwood. If glue is present, it’s best to contact us directly so that we can make a diagnosis. Unfortunately, glue damages our sanding equipment, and sometimes this requires us to refuse certain contracts.

Are there staples, nails, or screws in your floor or staircase?
Staples, nails, and screws must be completely removed from the wood surface to be sanded to avoid damaging the sanding equipment. There should no longer be any metal pieces embedded in the floor before our team arrives. The sanding equipment can’t be used on metallic surfaces at the risk of breaking it or slowing the work down considerably.
Make sure to remove them before we arrive.
What type of finish would you like to use on your floor?
What level of gloss would you like?
Pour la finition à huile naturelle, le seul fini disponible est Mat.
The gloss level is mainly a question of taste. The glossier the floor is, the more light it reflects. A high gloss, as is the case with an 80%-gloss varnish, makes the floor look beautiful, but this type of finish can reveal defects in the floor. By contrast, a 35%-gloss varnish will help mask scratches while offering a beautiful satin effect. Deservedly, the current trend is this satin look: the majority of our customers choose this option. As for semi-gloss varnish, it falls somewhere between the two: it’s around 55% gloss. It’s a good compromise, since it reflects enough light to suit most people’s tastes. Finally, a matte floor (5%-gloss varnish) offers a very warm and pleasant finish while preserving the more natural and rustic look of the wood. Hint: a matte finish camouflages imperfections in the wood very well, which is why it’s recommended for finishing antique floors that have been through a lot.
