The Secret of Gap filling method in Pine Floorboards

Posted on December 22nd, 2010 In: Blog, Wood Floor Staining & Gap Filling Blogs

Years of use or neglect can make a Victorian pine floor look pretty unsavory. To unearth its inherent beauty, it is important to restore the pine floorboards. Gap filling is an important aspect of the wood floor repair which helps in creating a uniform look.

Traditional Method Of Gap Filling

The traditional method of filling the gaps between Victorian pine floorboards is using a mixture of resin and the dust that comes from the floorboards. Although this is no doubt the cheapest gap filling method, it is also the least effective. Resin can easily crack given temperature differences and can fall out from between floorboards, rendering the whole process null.

The Best Gap Filling Method

The secret of best gap filling method in Victorian pine floorboards is, in fact, the use of strips of pine itself. It is possible to get specially manufactured strips that are made from reclaimed pine to be used between the gaps in the floorboards. D3 PVA glue is used to attach the pine strips in the appropriate position which is then hammered into place. Extra bits are chiseled off and the entire area is then polished off to create a uniform look.
