This floor had been carpeted over for a long time, and as the layout of the room had been changed over the years the border was missing or wrongly aligned in several places. We restored the floor, fabricating the missing pieces and
re-finished it, bringing it back into use again.
This is an oak parquet floor that had been in place for some years and the clients wanted to re-finish it, but without the golden colour that oak ages into. We sanded it, then bleached it with lye and finally enhanced the lightness by sealing with a white pigmented lacquer.
This was a utility room with oak boards, and after sanding we set out a chequerboard pattern using coloured oils.
This is a typical re-finishing job on pine floorboards, replacing the tiled hearth with additional boards, staining with Antique Pine and sealing with hardwax oil.
This old church in Manchester is now the home of the Halle Orchestra, and we re-finished the existing oak floor for them using Bona
This original parquet floor was long overdue a good sanding and sealing, and we used the tougher 2-pack lacquers that are best for commercial floors subject to hard wear.
This old pitch pine parquet floor (with unusually large and thick blocks) was in a very sorry state, with almost every single block loose and rattling. We lifted the entire floor, stabilising the sub-floor, and re-laid the blocks in exactly the same positions with fresh modern adhesive. Finally we sanded and finished the floor with hardwax oil. The picture shows the floor just as we finished, and before the pews were re-installed.
