Sanding and Coating

No matter what condition your floor is in or the type of timber, let us show you the magic of a polished floor by beautifully transforming them.  It will change the look and feel of your home by being inviting, cosy and natural.  Bring your old floors to life or start your new floor with a glow.  Tongue and groove, cork, parquetry, particle board, ply, overlay…

Harbour Floorsanding provide a complete timber floor sanding and restoration service. We will restore a well used, scratched or damaged timber floor to an extremely high finish. Our professional sanding services restore all types of timber flooring from classic T&G to parquet floors, chip board and cork to name a few.  Existing timber floors that are stained, worn or generally lack lustre will benefit from our professional timber floor sanding service.  We use top quality polyurethane products from Handley Industries and can help you choose the right finish for your type of floor and for the effect you want.



The timber floor is then sanded to a fine finish to remove any scratches.  For a superior finish, we use 3 grades of sandpapers, down to a fine 120 grit screened finish.  We recommend this for feature floors. Our specialised machinery guarantees a stunning finish, the best in New Zealand.

Preparation for Carpet, Vinyl, Tiles and Overlay - Including Builders Cut

We carry our any sanding preparation work that is required before laying carpet, vinyl, cork, tiles and overlay flooring.  For a Builders Cut, we sand particle board seams or the entire floor.



Polyurethane Finish

To finish your sanded floor, we use only the best quality polyurethane and offer a variety of finishes for you to choose from and made to wear well in New Zealand conditions, even with constant foot traffic.

The more commonly used polyurethanes are solvent based moisture-cured Gloss, Satin and Low Sheen.  There is also water-borne polyurethane in Gloss, Satin and Low Sheen.  We can apply a variety of finishes and textures to compliment your décor and lifestyle including non-yellowing polyurethane which is available in either solvent based moisture-cured or non-toxic water-borne. 

Reglazing - To Revitalise Your Floor

Commonly known as a maintenence coat, reglazing is a cost effective way to bring new life into your existing floors.  If your existing timber floors are looking a bit tired, we can easily revitalise them without having to completely re-sand and coat.  This is called a reglaze.  We simply come in, wash your floors with a reglaze solution, lightly sand and apply one to two coats of polyurethane of your choice - Gloss, Satin or Low Sheen.  This is great value if you are trying to sell your home or if your floors are in need of a facelift.

Please be aware that a reglaze cannot be done on a floor which has worn through to the bare timber.  You will require having your floor completely re-sanded and re-coated.


As you can see from the before and after pictures in our gallery, Harbour Floorsanding provide perfectly finished floors.  With maintenance, your refurbished floor should out last any laminate or carpet.
