Rustic Floor Supply offers wood floor fillers at our Boise, Idaho location. Wood floor filler is a product used to fill in cracks, gaps, and other imperfections on the floor, helping to create a smoother, more finished appearance. This type of filler is typically used in areas such as end joints, knots, and other small cracks in the wood. It is known for its fast drying time, typically taking only 20-30 minutes to fully cure, and it is both sustainable and sandable after drying. While wood floor filler is available in a range of colors to match different species of wood, some materials may not have a specific shade of filler available. In these cases, you may need to mix fillers to achieve the desired color or use a product like wood doe to achieve a closer match. It’s important to note that wood filler is not designed to be elastic and may crack with movement.

Premixed Wood Floor Fillers
Premixed wood floor fillers are a convenient and effective solution for filling in imperfections on your floor in Boise, Idaho. These fillers come in a range of colors to match a variety of wood species, and they work well for the majority of flooring materials. However, some materials may not match the colors of premixed fillers and may require custom matching. When staining over filler, it is important to ensure that the filler has taken the stain color well and is not noticeable. While wood floor filler is designed to smooth and finish the appearance of the floor, it is known to sometimes come out during the final sanding process and may need to be reapplied. By following the proper application and maintenance procedures, you can achieve a beautiful, smooth floor with minimal effort.
Mixing Wood Floor Fillers
In some cases, you may find that there is no premixed wood floor filler that matches the color of your flooring. When this happens, you will need to use a mixing filler to create a custom blend. Mixing fillers typically use fine sanding dust and a specialty product, such as wood doe, to create a custom filler that can be matched to the specific color of your floor. These fillers can be water-based or petroleum-based, depending on the specific product you are using. To apply mixing filler, simply mix the dust and specialty product to the desired consistency and trowel it onto the floor just like a premixed filler. This type of filler can be stained and sanded and is typically dry and ready for use within 20-30 minutes. By using a mixing filler, you can create a custom wood floor filler that perfectly matches your flooring.
