Cork Floor Sanding & Polishing
Brisbane cork floor sanding and polishing
Are you a Brisbane property owner looking to have your cork floors sanded or polished? If you have worn or old floors, you will notice a world of difference from a simple sand and polish. You are in the right place — here at D.R. Main Floors, we are floor maintenance and restoration experts, specialising in floor sanding and polishing of Cork and Timber Floors
What is cork flooring?
Cork is a wonderful natural product that offers excellent insulation properties. It is quite soft underfoot and wears incredibly well over time. In addition, it has the benefit of not being overly cold in winter and still cool in summer — making cork flooring the perfect all-year-round option for any room.
How does sanding work for cork floors?
A cork floor can be re-sanded to remove all polyurethane and reveal the natural cork underneath. After all the stages of sanding have been completed, we will apply three coats of Polyurethane Polish in either Gloss, Semi-Gloss or Satin.
As it is a natural product, it will have colour variations, especially when it has been re-sanded and polished. The sanding of cork is quite different to a traditional timber floor, and a lot of skill and extra care is needed due to the soft nature of the product. Cork re-sanding tends to throw out a bit more dust than when sanding traditional timber floors due to cork composition. Luckily, our sanding machines remove around 95% of dust; the rest can be avoided with drop sheets and coverings. We do dust down the areas we are working in but there will always be some small traces of dust in places as we cannot keep disturbing surface dust as it will affect the finish coat.

The flooring in the pictures had been exposed to many years of wear and tear without proper maintenance. However, as you can see from the pictures, it was possible to bring the cork back to its original quality state. The new owners decided to have the cork completed with a satin finish.

What our clients say about us
Thank you Glyn & Alison from DR Main Floors. So professional, friendly and great communication and amazing results. We went for the Matt Finish and the floor preparation, sand, stain and finish is exceptional. I'm still tip toeing around in socks! Beautiful finish and so happy with the results!
Glyn and Alison sanded and polished the floors in 3 bedrooms and a hallway. They did a terrific job which cannot be faulted. Absolutely no marks on the freshly painted skirting boards as well which shows great care was taken. Highly recommend DR Flooring for a top quality job!
We recently had our floors fully refurbished by D R Main Floors, and have been delighted with the truly amazing result. On returning to our home after the work was completed, the very fine looking timber floors were indeed a welcome sight. Given the condition that the floorboards were in beforehand, the transformation is quite unbelievable. Both Alison and Glyn were extremely knowledgeable and able to provide sound advice. We are most appreciative of the wonderful work done, and the overall effect has been to lift the whole appearance of the house interior.
We just had our decks sanded and oiled by D R Main Floors, Glyn did a fantastic job, we are very happy with the result. We have acquired several quotes and chose to go with D R Main Floors because Alison was knowledgeable and gave sound advice, and their quote is reasonable. We highly recommend D R Main Floors for any sanding and oiling floor work.
I'm not normally one to leave reviews but we had such a positive experience using D R Main that I'm happily writing one now. From the get go Alison and Glyn were helpful, informed and reliable. We had a slightly unusual situation because I was pregnant at the time of our floor polishing and so safety and speed were of high priority to us. Alison and Glyn delivered on safety and speed without compromising on quality. They really did their very best for us and the final look of the floors exceeded our expectations. We couldn't be happier with the results.
I recently had my floors sanded and stained by DRM floors. They were recommended to me and I am happy to recommend them to anyone. Apart from prompt service and a great job, I somehow managed to pay the deposit twice. Received a call about a month later advising of my error and deposit promptly returned. Honest as well!!!!
Alison and Glyn are such friendly people and really know their stuff. Our floors look amazing. Great results, great people, professional and great price. Can't recommend DR Main Floors enough.
