How To End OSB flooring

If you could find OSB flooring with none paint traces on it, that in fact could be preferrred. We couldn’t and our ground began out with the inexperienced paint traces used to help in nailing.For starters, whether or not you must do away with paint traces or not, it would be best to sand the ground with a belt sander. These may be rented from locations like Menards or Lowes. Don’t use a drum sander which might tear up any wooden ground in case you are not cautious. Even with the a number of layers of OSB, it’s wonderful how easy you may get the wooden after sanding. Use a medium grit sandpaper for greatest outcomes.

After sanding, broom sawdust into any gaps left the place sheets of OSB butt up to one another. Then, vacuum totally with a moist dry vac being cautious to steer clear of the gaps that you simply simply stuffed. You are actually prepared to use your ground polyurethane. We didn’t do any staining however that is all the time any possibility if you wish to go together with a darker shade. We merely utilized three very heavy coats of polyurethane specifically formulated for flooring. The model we used was Varathane which I might advocate. The OSB will take in the polyurethane fairly good so do not be afraid to do heavy coats. Ours have been nearly in puddles. Additionally, use a painters pad with a protracted deal with extension for making use of. It offers a pleasant easy end.

We all the time utilized a coat as we have been leaving the cabin after a weekend of labor after which would come again the subsequent weekend and it might be dry and easy. It could in all probability take a few days of drying time for the ground to not be cheesy.

After three coats, I like our ground. It’s exhausting and easy and feels as good as my hardwood ground at house. All you must do for somewhat additional heat is throw down some space rugs!
