Timber flooring is a staple in many homes in the Brisbane area. When done correctly, timber floors are durable and add value to your property far into the future. They provide a warmth and a timeless aesthetic that other flooring can’t match. But these mistakes can ruin your timber floor and cause you to spend time, money and effort trying to compensate. Here are some timber flooring mistakes not to make.
Failure to Plan

But correctly installing a Timber floor and getting the finish right is hard work. It may take a little more equipment than you have in your shed. If you install and maintain your timber floor correctly, it can last as long as your house does.
But if you have to cut corners due to a lack of equipment or you don’t have the full complement of skills it takes to install a jaw-dropping timber floor, it may be best left to professionals.
Besides the pride one can take in completing a project that looks great and serves you for years, the other main benefit of DIY is that it can save you a lot of money. But if you don’t get it right the first time, you can spend a lot more time, money and effort to repair it then it would have cost to hire a professional in the first place.
DIY but do it right. Or hire someone who can.
