Strategies for Repairing Floors Damaged by Frost

Understanding Frost Damage on Floors

Frost can cause considerable damage to wood floors, especially when it infiltrates and water expands upon freezing. This expansion can lead to cracking, swelling, or even lifting of the boards. At Plancher Deluxe, our expertise enables us to effectively assess and repair these damages.

Accurate Diagnosis of the Damage

  • Detailed Inspection: A thorough examination of the floor to identify the affected areas.
  • Structure Evaluation: Determining whether the frost has affected only the surface or the very structure of the wood.

Specialized Repair Techniques

Sanding and Renovation

  • Meticulous Sanding: Using adapted floor sanding techniques to remove surface damage and prepare the surface for repair.
  • Surface Restoration: Repairing cracks and leveling boards to regain a uniform surface.

Moisture Treatment

  • Professional Drying: Drying methods to eliminate any residual moisture in the wood.
  • Future Prevention: Applying treatments that protect the wood against future effects of frost and moisture.

Finishing Options for Increased Durability

  • Selection of Varnishes and Oils: Choosing high-end finishes to protect the floor and enhance its aesthetics.
  • Expert Application: A meticulous application to ensure a uniform and long-lasting protection.
