Sanding

The correct combination of sandpaper grits would be selected, dependent of the species of wood, to level off the flooring and remove scratches and marks, leaving a beautifully clean smooth finish to the wood.

 

Staining

Our high quality spirit based stains provide excellent grain definition and depth of colour & come in a variety of shades. They are designed to penetrate and seal the wood, while adding luxurious colour to suit your decor. A bespoke colour matching service is also available.

 

Lacquering

After the sanding preparation we can re-protect your flooring with a lacquer of your choice, using waterborne polyurethane lacquers in different finishes for low or high traffic areas. The finish used can last for many years, without any further treatment.

Thank you for your reliability and helpfulness. I particularly appreciated the time taken to talk things through and discuss options. It was also a relief to find someone so accommodating, so that I was relieved of some of the stress associated with difficult time constraints.

Repairs - Parquet Blocks

We can repair or extend your parquet block flooring, matching the wood, colour and finish using reclaimed blocks with no living trees felled and at a reasonable price. The reclaimed blocks are sourced from all over the UK, often from buildings scheduled for demolition. A lot of these wood blocks are species of wood that you are unlikely see again due to their rarity.

Stair Sanding

Gap Filling

Existing original floor boards, hidden under carpet coverings for years may have gaps between the planks. The best way to fill gaps in pine floor boards is to hammer and glue in reclaimed pine wedges and sand off.

A cheaper, more cost effective way can be to fill the floor with the appropriate coloured mastic and sand off.
