Floor sanding of solid wood flooring (Junckers) in Runnymede

Background…

Junckers is a brand, which primarily offers solid hardwood flooring. Unlike engineered wood, which has a veneer of hardwood over a plywood core, solid hardwood is made entirely of one species of wood, providing durability and a rich, natural appearance. Solid hardwood floors from Junckers can be sanded and refinished multiple times, extending their lifespan and maintaining their appearance over many years and is an excellent choice for wooden flooring in schools, sport halls, gyms, museums and more.

Our restoration works…

The beech hardwood flooring in Runnymede Borough Council was overall looking tired and in need of restoration. During our obligatory site survey, we did a thorough inspection of the solid wood floors and discussed with the client all possible options. Our floor restoration service begins with detailed inspection of the floors and any repairs to the hardwood flooring will be completed in this initial stage.

Our client decided to go for finishing the floors in matt Bona Traffic lacquer. Bona Traffic is a high-performance waterborne finish, designed to withstand heavy traffic, making it a suitable finish for wooden floors with residential and commercial use.

Solid wood flooring comes usually as "tongue-and-groove" planks and would have approx. 6-7 mm sandable depth, measured from the surface to the position of the T&G on the plank. This upper layer defines what is the remaining thickness available for sanding on the beech plank. Depending on the overall condition of the floors, the initial floor sanding may start with a coarser or medium grid. The task of this initial floor sanding stage of the hardwood flooring is to remove the previous finish and provide a good level throughout all planks.

Overall, the level of the hardwood flooring is expected to be good, due to the "tongue-and-groove" locking between the planks, however due to presence of past, current or seasonal damp in some cases the planks may get slight sides curving with the time.

Sanding the floors with fine grids (80 - 120 gr) and a good rotary buff to the new beech timber surface with high grid buffing screens is the most important stage in the preparation of the wooden flooring for finishing.

Floors were consequently sealed with a coat of primer and 2 coats of the Bona Traffic water-based lacquer in matt sheen with another light screen buff between the coats, for an excellent final touch to the finish.
