Some wood floor repair and renovation projects are significantly more challenging and require more mastership and attention to details than others. Today we introduce you to one of the most heavy duty projects we have carried on in Bromley. Our new clients were in an emergency need of a major wood floor restoration and repair service before they move into the new place. As apparent from the pictures below, the wooden floor in this Victorian building, once beautiful and existing, was completely damaged and missing.
After we inspected the ‘before’ pictures we were provided and we assessed the condition of the subfloor and the existing joints on site, we recommended a list of much-needed sub-projects, including replacement of all aged, dry, and distressed floorboards, including removal of the floorboards of the fireplace hearth, and replacing them with new ones that match the style and colour of the floor. We provided all the materials as a supplier of all of the highest quality manufacturers worldwide and our clients were very happy with the quality-value ratio we offered.
Once the new floorboards and materials were transported and delivered to the address, we carried on with their installation. Once again, we always make sure to achieve the perfect match between old and new boards, which can be very challenging and hard but we ensured a maximum uniform and even look. Once we were finished with the fitting of the boards and achieving the original pattern and appearance of the floor that added a lot of elegance, charm, and unique atmosphere of the room, we started working on the finishing touches. First of all, sanding is of essential importance as it ensures the uniform and smooth surface of the floor. Gap filling is a highly recommended service for many floors, especially aged ones, as it brings back the initial stability and solidness of the floor and ensures great insulation and lasting power.
The gap filling process is pretty simple and inexpensive as it uses the sawdust created by sanding the floor. Followed by buffing, the surface of the floor was finally as smooth and even as possible. Once we are done with sanding and the finishing buffing, the pores of the wooden structure are open and prepared for the application of staining and sealing products and their efficient absorption. In order to completely transform the appearance of the floor and make it look more up-to-date and stylish, as required by our clients, we applied a high-quality wood floor stain and finished the surface with glossy lacquer. All high-quality products and services combined plus the craftsmanship and professionalism of our repair team successfully transformed this once destroyed wooden floor into the interior designer’s dream!
