Local Project: Fireplace Heart Removal and Re-Finishing of Pine Parquet Flooring Blocks in Satin Lacquer in Islington

Parquet flooring is something unique. It was once only reserved for the nobility and the upper classes until modern technology allowed common people to have it in their homes. The current job involved the repair and restoration of old parquet flooring as well as the supply and installation of blocks in the stead of a recently removed fireplace. Among our other services, we also offer our clients to provide reclaimed flooring for their homes. Thanks to our vast network, finding the needed parquet blocks was a child’s play.

Repairing old parquet floors can sometimes been tricky since most of them are laid with bitumen. Pulling the blocks one by one in order to repair them can take some time due to the brittle and unstable adhesive. However, we have a lot of experience in this so the process went smoothly. After repairing or replacing the parquet pieces who needed it, we sanded the floor and buffed it with Bona Trio which made the worn blocks reveal their inner beauty.

Once we uncovered the bare wood, we applied three coats Junckers HP Commercial which allowed the parquet to achieve mirror-like smoothness as well as a very attractive, shiny look. A few decades old parquet repaired, sanded and finished in less than three days is certainly not a bad thing. We left a satisfied customer who appreciated our hard work and desire to give him the best.

Local Project: Solid Oak Sanding & Sealing with Matt Lacquer in Islington

There are floor and floors. Some of them are severely damaged or distressed while others just need a bit of help in order to truly shine. We were called to restore a floor covered with penetrating oiled finish.

Solid oak sanding & sealing project in Islington

The oak boards we stumbled upon were in relatively good condition and did not require replacing. The surface, however, was in a state which can be described as ‘far from perfect’. The main problem here was the worn finish. Penetrating oil finishes enhance the grain and make the surface look more natural but require more frequent maintenance.  Because of this, we advise our clients to go for varnishes/ lacquers because they offer better overall protection.

In this particular case, though, the client valued the qualities provided by the oil finishes and had no desire to use anything else. Of course, we did as the customer requested by sanding the old, worn finish and applying coats of oil. As a result, the distressed surface was fully restored for two days. We used oil with a low sheen level. A matt finish will reflect less light and make it easier to hide small flaws and imperfection, especially when exposed to heavy traffic.

Local Project: Staircase Sanding & Floor Restoration in Islington

Just by entering the premises, we figured that would be one of the jobs we love. Jobs where we can see an old and worn-out floor and we just can't wait to get our hands on it and restore it to the brilliant and shining centrepiece that it once was.

Renovating wood flooring is a task that requires skill and expertise. We could tell from the first glance that those particular qualities will come in really handy when it came to this job. The dire straits of the stairs required our immediate attention, so we decided to put them on the top of our to-do list.

Local Project: Hardwood Sanding, Buffing, Lacquer & Gap Filling in Islington

One of the elements of your interior you will never regret choosing is having a real wood floor installed in your home or office. This type of flooring comes with a long list of benefits, one of the major one being the fact it can be re-sanded and refinished a few times in its lifecycle which will make the floor look like brand-new and improve its condition even after years of active use. A great example of how even an old, worn, and dull wooden floor can change dramatically after professional service is this recent project we undertook. As you can tell by the pictures shared here, the initial condition of the floor was poor, which also affected its appearance.

There is nothing a good professional sanding and refinishing service cannot help with. Sanding is one of the most popular treatments for real wood floors, it strips off the top layer of the floor that usually consists of the old and worn finish and all the imperfections on the surface. Once the issues and imperfections such as scratches, stains, marks, and dents are removed, the floor already looks better, the surface is smoother and more uniform, the risk of small issues turning into big problems is minimised. This is also a great moment to consider gap filling if needed. This project definitely required filling some of the gaps between the floorboards and we've managed to make the floor structure more solid and sturdy, improve the insulation properties. Finally, the final touch is the application of a beautiful, very elegant and stylish lacquer finish that protects wood from imperfections and damages.
