The restoration of aged, damaged, distressed, and dull wooden floors can be a very challenging job even the most experienced and knowledgeable professionals lose their sleepover. The outcomes you will get after such a project can vary dramatically as the process and results are highly determined by a number of factors. There is no doubt that when left in the safe and experienced hands of wood floor restoration and repair professionals, all the risks are minimised to the bare minimum. Of course, as a truly dedicated, hard-working, and passionate wood floor repair and restoration specialists we are always striving to achieve the best results while remaining within the budget and the schedule of our clients.
It is the approach we started this project when our in-depth professional inspection of the pinewood floor concluded a good need of repair, gap filling, replacement of some highly damaged floorboards, sanding, finishing, and final staining for a complete transformation. In a nutshell, all of the floorboards have been exposed to so much wear and tear and high traffic that the surface was in an emergency need of renovation, while for some extra damaged floorboards the more time-, money-, and energy-saving option was the alternative of simply replacing them.
Once the replacement of the distressed boards was completed, our professional team carried on with the sanding process. This is a basic floor renovation process that starts with stripping off the old finish until the surface is left completely smooth and even. We work with state-of-art wood floor sanding machinery and equipment with advanced technology for an almost complete collection of the sawdust. This is highly beneficial for every project because it minimises the stress, mess, and disruption significantly and we are also able to collect the dust that, when mixed with natural resin, makes the perfect solution for a gap filling service.
Since the sawdust comes from the same timber wood of the floor, the match in colour and texture is flawless and the surface remains uniform. Additionally, we added pine slivers for the larger gaps of this flooring construction. Gap filling is a great method for not only ensuring full stability and durability of the floor but also better insulation and higher energy efficiency in wintertime. The project carried on with a thorough buffing with a rotary machine so the surface is prepared for the application of finishing and staining projects. For this project on the pictures, clients wanted a completely renewed and refreshed look for their floor and additional staining was recommended and performed. We used a lacquer finish that guarantees a long-lasting and hard-wearing power along with the shine that adds a lot of elegance, style, and beauty.
This project and the results achieved once again demonstrates the skills and mastership of our wood floor repair and refinishing team and we are happy to share it with you and maybe inspire you to maintain your favourite wooden floor too. As it comes to this beautiful wooden floor we have worked on, unfortunately, you can judge by the pictures, it wasn’t in the best shape ever and it needed a bit more than just maintenance and cleaning.
Thankfully, when in the safe hands of experienced and knowledgeable professionals, in almost all cases the wooden floor can be successfully restored and there is often no need of expensive and more complex replacement of the entire floor. Our clients contacted us in need of a major wood floor renovation service. Once we visited them, assessed the condition of the floor, and discussed all additional details, our specialists concluded that the overall project will mainly involve around spot repairs in the most damaged areas and continued with some slight repairs in some other areas of the floor, filling gaps, then finished up with sanding and re-oiling.
As we aim towards minimising the disruption to our clients’ day-to-day life and work, we make sure to offer not just the premier quality of service but also an overall hassle- and stress-free experience. Flexibility, timely manner of work and still delivering the best quality, and respect to our clients’ schedule are just a few of our core values. This is why we’ve managed to finish the project for less than 2 days and achieved really impressive results.
We’ve started with replacing all the floorboards that were too damaged and distressed to be able to withstand another year or two. By doing this, we not only improve the overall appearance of the floor, but we’ve also ensured a lot of stability, solidness, durability, and lasting power. In order to improve the strength of the floor even more and ensure brilliant insulation, we’ve filled all the gaps between the boards. We use a mixture of natural resin along with saw we collect after sanding and by this, we achieve a uniform and even colour on the surface of the floor. To finish things up, we’ve continued with sanding the floor until flawless smoothness and evenness. The final touch of re-oiling the floor gave it this natural look and restored its beauty.
