Considering the beauty of parquet flooring, its usually higher price, and the complexity of parquet patterns, if you own a parquet flooring, you want to maintain it regularly and in perfect condition so you can enjoy it for decades. Parquet does not go out of style as it is a golden classic, however, maintaining, repairing and renovating it is always highly recommended to be left in the safe hands of experienced professionals. When it comes to parquet floor repair and refinishing, it should be approached with the highest standard of craftsmanship, attention to details, experience, and knowledge.
Due to the specific parquet patterns, the risk of sanding against the grain and ruining the whole floor’s surface is pretty high, that is why you should look for a reliable and reputable company. As you can see from the pictures, our professional team was challenged to renovate this beautiful parquet floor that struggled with some wear and tear. After the initial inspection and assessment of the floor on site, we prepared for a project that requires mastership, a good understanding of proper parquet floor sanding, refinishing, and repair, and the highest quality professional equipment.
First of all, we started by tackling down the spot repairs here and there. Our clients wanted to achieve a look reminiscent to the initial appearance and condition of their parquet floor, this is why we made sure to remove all distressed, broken, and too old parquet boards and replace them with brand new from the same wood species and colour to achieve the best match. Once we were done with this stage of the service, we continued with stripping off the top layer of old and worn finish along with all scratches, stains, dents, and marks on the surface. Special attention is paid to always sand with the grain in order to minimise the risk from faster wear and tear of the floor. It appeared that due to the age of the floor, a gap filling service should be performed.
We filled in all gaps between the boards with a mixture of resin and the sawdust collected after the first round of sanding. This way we ensured a uniform evenness of the surface and lasting insulation and durability of the whole floor’s structure. A couple more rounds with the sanding machines and the floor were ready for the final touches. A high-quality finishing product was applied on the surface. The clients have chosen a glossy lacquer finish that perfectly matches the classy and elegant style of their parquet floor. Final touches and we managed to completely transform the look and condition of this tired and worn parquet floor.
There is nothing else that gives a real wood floor such an unbeatable appearance and a boost of the natural beauty of its texture and colour such as a wood floor oil finish. This is why we are always happy to undertake a wood floor sanding, buffing, and re-oiling project – the final results are always impressive and our clients going through such a process are always happy and satisfied not only with the outcomes but also with the whole experience. Besides professional job and impressive results, we also guarantee stress- and mess-free service, no matter the treatment of your choice, thanks to our experience, knowledge, and the advanced technologies and techniques we utilise for our job.
It is safe to say that most of the wood floor sanding, buffing, and re-oiling projects are pretty easy to deal with. However, this is not always the case and the finished project we are about to share with you today is a great example that some wood floor renovations are more challenging compared to others. This does not mean that you have to give up on your dream to have a beautiful real wood floor, especially when its renovation is in the safe and experienced hands of specialists. When we arrived at this location for an initial free inspection, we quickly concluded that the condition of this wood floor is not the best and we were glad to undertake this challenging project, foreseeing the great results we are able to achieve.
One of the main things we take the most pride in our job is our work ethic and the fact we always recommend and undertake only the most required and necessary services for improving your floor. We value honesty and we don’t pursue money. This is exactly how we approached this project – only the most necessary services done, which included refitting and repair of some of the old floorboards in very poor and worn condition, then fillip the gaps in between the boards. Gap filling does an amazing job in terms of creating a uniform and even surface along with ensuring great insulation and stability. We continued with sanding the surface for an extra smooth and even look and feel, then applied a few layers of oil finish. Wood floor oil finishes not only enhance the natural beauty of real wood floors, but they also penetrate into the wood’s structure and ensure protection from within and preserve the surface of the floor. As you can tell by the pictures below, we were once again able to achieve outstanding results!
