Restoring Oak Flooring South Durham

By On February 10, 2014 Under Floor Sanding, Natural Wood Flooring

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.
