If you are looking for a ballpark figure for sanding your floors you have come to the right site

In summary If your floors are located within the Pitlochry Glasgow Edinbough triangle, the room is clear, the floors require no repairs, the work can be carried out during normal office hours and you are happy to put three bags of dust and rubbish in your bins per room, there are only two options affecting the cost.

What grit sanding pads we can start at. (Pine usually needs a 7 step process starting at 24 grit whereas some Hardwoods may only need a 4 step process starting at 60 grit)


All you need is the square meterage of the room to work out a ball park figure

(Length x width, remember to split the room into rectangles and add these together if the room is variable width)


Armed with the total you should be able to work out the price by choosing one from each option and multiply each option by your squares meterage, then finally adding the three figures together


Sanding Costs

4 step sanding £20 per Sq M

7 step sanding £24 per Sq M


If however your floor restoration is not straight forward, we have got a downloadable Floor Sanding & Finishing Calculator, but unfortunately it is currently only available in excel. However, we have copied portions of the dfownloadable PDF with all the figures is available, but you will have to do the calculations manually. All


you need to input is the square meterage of your floors, the number of rooms or Linear meters where appropriate and you will be able to work out the price.

If you are not sure about any of the options, please check out our videos or simply give me a call on 07724148800 or email me direct at paul@citrusflooring.co.uk

Gaps between boards


Tongue and grove pine floor boards have an expansion joint that opens and closes with the seasons and the prevailing atmospheric conditions. 90% of our clients see this as a feature of their beautifully restored pine floors. However, some clients want them filled because they have a tendency to accumulate dust and debris and or, there are issues of drafts that nee to be resolved. Up to about three years ago the


re maximum width you could fill a gap with mix and fill ( a product mixed with the dust from the 80grit sanding ) was 3mm Pallmann have brought out a new product with added fibres that allows us to successfully fill gaps unto 5mm. Using this method wider gaps can be filled, but it flys in the face of the manufactures recommendation and we do not offer this solution, as it will look great for as couple of months then fall out as the floors contract.

The only permanent solution to filling gasps wider than 5mm is wedge shaped slithers glued in with PVA
