O'Berry 2084 Squeak Ender Kit

The Squeak Ender positively elminates the cause of squeaky floors. The squeakender consists of only two major parts, a square anchor plate with carriage bolt and a joist bracket. The mounting plate is placed right next to the joist and screwed to the underside of the floor (screws provided). Then the joist bracket slips under the joist and through the bolt. A washer and nut (provided) are posistioned on the carriage bolt and tightened, thus pulling the floor securely to the joist.

Stopping those annoying squeaks in your wood floors:

In most cases the three wood flooring members (the joist, subfloor and finished hardwood) have separated, and the nails binding them are moving in the nail holes. A little dust in these nail shafts makes the boards squeak. That’s why talc, wax and graphite offer a temporary solution. But why not try a permanent fix for your squeaky wood floors?

How to Repair a Water Damaged Wood Floor:

Well, the first thing to do, is to dry out the floor surface and more importantly the subfloor, so that the boards don't continue to warp. In fact if you have a plywood subfloor, it going to be very difficult drying the underside of all the hardwood floor boards affected, because of the waterproof nature of plywood.

How To Apply polyurethane to your wood floors WITHOUT the bubbles:

I promised a novice floor guy in New Jersey to write this article. He’s been having quite a problem with his wood floors, (and I’m sure customer complaints) because he has been leaving bubbles in the last coat of polyurethane. He would like a quick fix, and I’m afraid both you and he may be miffed by the length and detail in this article. I cannot help this, but you will be satisfied by the depth this article will cover.

Should I sand the wood floors myself or hire a pro?

While your gender shouldn't affect your ability to sand a floor, your lack of training will. You just cannot pick up the floor sanding trade on a weekend. It took me 6 months of full time work, before I was let loose on client’s fine wood floors. Suffice it to say I cannot teach you how to sand a floor by e-mail or in this web site. It is a strictly hands on training. And I doubt that the rental places will give you a course on sanding and finishing your floor. The "toy" floor sanders they rent at all the tool rental shops will not, in any case, do a decent job of sanding your floor.

Health and Safety when working on your wood floors

This is meant to be an article about avoiding health robing practices when installing a new or sanding your old wood floors. But it may turn out to be a treatise on how to learn from the mistakes of others. Namely, my own really deadly mistakes.

How To Clean And Maintain Wood Floors PART ONE:

First, I'm going to refer to water based cleaners. These are the safest and easiest cleaners to use on a well finished wood floor. Well finished means the finish must be either 3 coats of oil modified polyurethane (no lacquer sealers please), or 4 coats of a water based finish (either a one part oxygen crosslinking formula, or a two component catalyzed type).

How To Clean And Maintain Wood Floors PART TWO

This stain article for your wood floors will talk about what type of stains to use on particular woods, and the best methods to apply them. I will also talk about the dreaded white pigmented stain, dye stains, and ebonizing wood floors.

Laquer Finish Wood Floor Fires:

I hope the title of this article alarms you because every time I get news of another lacquer wood floor fire it brings me back about 21 years ago when a floor caught on fire right under my nose.

Wrong Way Wood Floors:

Here we have a situation that could have been avoided with a little planing and knowledge. In our video section you can see me preparing a sub-floor on the main floor, of a Toronto home, before installing a new oak wood floor. Well believe it or not, (because of my busy schedule) the owner hired a major Toronto based firm to install a similar wood floor on the second floor. This article will teach you what you should be looking out for when hiring a contractor to work on your wood floors.

Wrong Way Wood Floors Concluded:

Well I guess , all's well that ends well. I spent quite a bit of time with my client, coaching him on his upcoming Small Calims Court lawsuit. He has spent a fair bit of his time this summer gathering estimates from other companies and making a video of the humpy floor using a spirit level to demonstrate just how bad this job was.

A Brief History Of Wood Floors:

According to "THE ELEMENTS OF STYLE" encyclopedia as late as 1625 the ground floor of most European houses still lacked wood floors. Most houses had a beaten earth floor that required visitors to wipe their shoes on a entry mat to prevent this natural floor from getting muddy or dusty depending on the weather.

Plank and Strip Wood Floors:

I will divide strip wood floors from plank wood floors in this discussion because they have different fastening and sub-floor requirements. Tongue and groove strip floor in 2 1/4" or 3 1/4" wide and 3/4" in depth, is probably the most popular hardwood flooring available to North Americans today.

Prefinished Wood Floors: How to choose!

I can't tell you how many times I've been asked what brand of prefinished wood floors I recommend. Or how many samples I've gotten through the mail. These days there are so many choices out there it really is hard to tell the good wood floor from the mediocre and poor wood floor. For this discussion I will try to stay away from brand names (for once) and try to talk out these wood floors in a more generic manor.

Parquet Wood Floors:

This type of wood flooring first showed up in the Baroque Period (1625-1714) in France's most Royal of homes and palaces. This is where they first experimented with the most intricate of patterns and 3D effects. These days parquet flooring is found in the most humble of apartments, as the basic mosaic pattern is quite affordable to the rest of us plebeins.
