What Are the Benefits of Wood Floor Gap Filling?

Varying humidity levels, wear and tear and the natural properties of wood can all cause gapping in wooden flooring over time. The problem can be exacerbated if the expansion gaps in your flooring weren’t the right size when the floor was initially installed.

Floor sanding and gap filling can extend the life of a wooden floor with even the most serious gapping issues. And hiring a gap filling service in London can deliver a range of benefits.

  • Prevents dirt and dust accumulation
  • Makes pest infestations less likely
  • Prevents structural issues in the future
  • Prevents heat loss
  • Improves the look of a wooden floor
  • Extends the natural life of a wooden floor
  • Reduces the noisiness of flooring


What Does Wood Floor Gap Filling Involve?

If you live in a home that suffers from big temperature and humidity swings, your floor may be prone to gaps. However, with the professionals on the case, you should be able to manage the problem effectively.

There are two primary ways to fix gaps in a wood floor. The first involves the use of sawdust and a resin filler. The good thing about this method is that sawdust from the exact wood used in your flooring can be used — guaranteeing a seamless finish. The second method involves the use of solid wood strips or slivers.

Should you fill gaps in wood floors?
This depends on the type of wood and the size of the gaps. In some cases, adding a filler yourself might cause more problems down the line. Always seek professional advice.
How do I fill in a large gap in my hardwood floor?
Sawdust and resin are sometimes used to fill in large gaps. Alternatively, a floor restoration expert might use solid wood strips or slivers. But this is a highly technical process.
Is it normal for wood floors to gap in the winter?
Dry winter weather can cause certain types of wood to contract and lose moisture. And when this happens, cracks and gaps can develop quite quickly.
How do your hide gaps in hardwood floors?
There are dedicated resins and putties designed for this purpose. However, to preserve your flooring and extend its lifespan, it’s best to rely on professionals to do the work.
Why do old wood floors have gaps?
Contraction is part of any wooden floor’s natural life cycle. This happens in the wood dries out and shrinks during the winter. Conversely, wood expands during the summer months.

Excellent, clean and fast service. They sanded the floors perfectly, beautifully stained the boards and varnished to an extremely professional standard, and cleaned up very well. Couldn’t have been a better service from Wooden Flooring Experts, especially as they were fixing a job that another company had performed very badly.

We used Wooden Flooring Experts to sand all of our original + damaged floorboards. They were super responsive and great to deal with during the process of choosing them, and when they were doing the job they always arrived on time and communicated throughout. We couldn't recommend these guys more if you needed expert floor sanding, amazing!

Great experience with the team at Wooden Flooring Experts. They arrived early and worked hard to get our floors done quickly and perfectly. We had a lot of gaps to be filled and lots of small corners which made this hard, but they managed to get it done! The difference between before and after is amazing.
