Local Project: Sanding And Painting Damaged Oak Floorboards in Croydon

It looked like the typical distressed floor. It had suffered from dents, marks and scratches all over. The floor, however, seemed stable enough and did not require extensive repairs or floorboard replacement of any kind. Cases such as this one allow us to immediately get on with our work and save time to our clients as well as ourselves.

There isn’t much to be said about the sanding process. Like always, we stripped the more uneven parts and slowly transitioned to finer sandpaper grits until we were sure that the floor looked as good as it could possibly be. Once the surface was fully buffed it was ready for painting.

Staining is one of the trickier parts of floor restoration for two reasons. First, sometimes the process can be tough to perform on some specific wood types because the stain isn’t properly absorbed or is affected by the wood’s original colour. Fortunately, oak is quite easy to stain so it wasn’t a problem at all.

Second, if the sanding is not performed at a professional level, any imperfection will be magnified by the stain and become more visible. If something goes wrong, the only way to fix this is to sand and re-stain again. Obviously, with our expertise such a scenario will never come to pass. We stained the floor white with no complications.

We usually go for lacquers like the Junckers HP Commercial which provides excellent results at a reasonable price but in this case, we agreed with the client to go for Bona Mega. Bona Mega is a water-based varnish which, like most of its kind, doesn’t turn yellow as it ages. This makes it very suitable for grey or white stained floors such as the one we were currently working on.

The floor was restored to its previous glory in a flash. The whole process took us no more than 2 days. One for sanding and buffing and one for staining and finishing. The differences before and after making any words obsolete. We also included pictures showing how we restored the floor before applying the stain to make the result more visible.

Local Project: Staining Floorboards After Sanding Service in Croydon

As we already mentioned, our teams are experienced in the restoration of old and damaged wooden floors. The following case is a proof for our high level of craftsmanship and expertise. The flooring is from pine floorboards and suffers from finish flaws and huge gaps, which was the reason some of the boards to be refitted. There was also a huge difference in the level of the boards in particular areas of the room.

Our tasks included stripping off the scratched surface in few stages with different sandpaper grits. Once the boards were smooth and levelled, we could continue with filling the gaps. For some of the gaps that wide up to 5mm we’ve used wood slivers with matching colour.

The clients wanted to have some major changes in the appearance of their flooring, so they also included staining in the quotation. The selected product was in medium tones – Morrells light oak. The final step from the job was to seal the flooring with the hardwearing finish, in this case, this was the water-based lacquer ‘Junckers HP Commercial’. After applying 4 coats with a satin sheen, our job here was done. These impressive results were achieved in 3 days.

Local Project: Teak Engineered Flooring Repair in Croydon

When our team arrived at the premises, it turned out that this project would not present any difficulty at all. It was pretty much a one-two job where all they had to do was refit some of the old floorboards, then proceed with the sanding process.

After the teak floors were sanded, part of the residual dust was used to fill the gaps between the floorboards. After applying the primer and sealant, respectively, the floors were finished off with Osmo's Polyx Hardwax Oil. This led to the beautiful and shiny look you can see in the photos.
