What we do
We remove tile, timber or vinyl and sand the concrete, timber or particleboard beneath so you have new flooring built upon or further polished.
Who we are
We are a small team in the uplifting and grinding business for ages, covering whole Auckland area serving both domestic and commercial clients. Jun Dong has been project managing this business for over three years and you can contact him through 021366217.
When you need us
The ideal timing of our commitment is After the old furniture or fixture is gone(in case you want to salvage some value or change the floor plan where previously inaccessible) and Before new furniture, painting or flooring come in. We are more than happy to coordinate with your tiler, timber floor or carpet layer for scheduling and any other concerns.
What is the finish like
We generally make the carpet finish foe the new flooring, as fine as 30 grit, ready for new adhesive so the bond between new flooring or waterproof and concrete is perfect.
How do you do it
Roughly we will use jack hammer to break the old flooring which is noisy (about 120 decibel) and dusty, then sand it with grinder for the finish.
What are the concerns
Dust control. It is unavoidable in the uplifting step and controlled in the sanding, so it is important that we step in at the right stage, i.e. preferably furniture free and covered. We do use tarpaulins to stop the dust, but it is not 100%.
Edgework We need the kickboard or toe kick removed before the job for the purpose of better edge finish as our grinder blade can reach the desired space required by the flooring people, and eliminate the potential scratches on the kickboard or toe kick.
Particle board Some tiles are directly glued on particleboard without underlay, this may lead part of ripped off when lifting the tiles, you can usually fix it by apply new underlay or replace part of floor board.
What do you charge
Our minimum charge is NZD350-400+gst, for a small bathroom or toilet. For a bigger project, please give us a ring on 021366217 or text us, which is faster to get response than email as Jun usually drives a lot and do not have good signal coverage.
