Gap Filling

Gap Filling

Gap filling servicesA common complaint with wood flooring is gaps between strips in flooring. Often these gaps occur because of normal, seasonal conditions. However, occasionally gaps appear because of improperly manufactured or installed flooring.

Process:

  • First, the flooring will be assessed for movement between strips. Strips may require face nailing, particularly near the groove edge to eliminate movement.
  • Next, we thoroughly clean the gaps. Old filler and trash is scraped and vacuumed away.
    Filler is then applied down into the gap to the tongue level. For latex filler in the wide gaps, shrinkage of the filler may require more than one application.
  • After filling, coloring (stains), screening, and re-coating may follow where surface finish is applied. If refinishing the floor is determined to be necessary.
