Timber Floor Sanding and Polishing

Quality Finishes, Sanding and Polishing

Vincent’s Floors uses a variety of timber finishing products to ensure the best finish for your floor. Trusted brands such as Bona, Loba, Polycure and Handleys ensure a high standard of quality and durability.

Choosing the right finish can be a big decision.

A water-based coating is the least toxic, lightest toned finish that will keep the grain in your timber light.

Oil-based or solvent-based finishes have a higher grade of water and scratch resistance. Ideal for commercial spaces with higher foot traffic. Oil or solvent based finishes tend to darken the grain in timber.

Below is an example of the same species of timber, Blackbutt, with a water based finish and a solvent based finish.
