Parquet Flooring County Durham

By On November 18, 2014 No Comments

This Oak Parquet floor was discovered under some carpeting during a home restoration project. It was identified that it was approximately 110 years old. Our client wasn’t sure if we could bring it back to life such was the obvious wear on the surface!

We visited his home a few days earlier to patch sand a sample area which gave us a glimpse of the possibilities of the lovely Oak floor under the cloud of deterioration!

We started a little gentler on this project with a 60 grit belt working through to highlight this beautiful old Oak flooring.

Half way through the sanding process we mixed fine sand dust with quick drying glue and screeded the floor to fill the many existing gaps. This also worked to give the floor a complete and more solid appearance.

Before finishing the floor sanding process the wood floor was protected with several coats of Pallmann Magic Oil. Our experience in the wood restoration field has allowed us to identify the best-available product formulations for individual and specific phases of the process. It means that we are equipped to tailor our services to achieve the best possible finish that will stand the test of time.

Restoring Oak Flooring South Durham

By On February 10, 2014 No Comments

Wood flooring is an incredibly versatile flooring option and it really can boost the appearance of any area of your home. It is relatively low maintenance when looked after; some wood floors suffer a lot of wear and tear and can start to show scuffs, scratches and markings over many years.

This client’s home was a beautiful, substantial Georgian period residence in the Barnard Castle area of South Durham. With a lot of refurbishment ongoing throughout, our work was part of a programme of fantastic improvement.

We were quite surprised at how badly damaged the surface of the narrow Oak floor boards were when we first saw the floor. This was due to previous carpets being glued in place over many years; you can see from the photos how the heavy duty glue had etched into the surface of the Oak floor which helped make up the once beautiful sprung floor.

It is not normal that the first sanding grit we had to use was a course 24 grit belt to try and strip away the old residue, which kept clogging the wheels of the machine as we worked gradually to clear the surface.

The room wasn’t small either, at approximately 75 square metres of solid wood; but we were helping to transform this once again stunning old Drawing room. We are well-equipped to deal with smaller and larger sized jobs and our attention to detail remains the same.
