Before the works...

The oak parquet flooring in this Greenford school was overall looking tired and in urgent need of restoration. During our initial survey, we did detailed inspection of the floors and discussed with the client all possible options.

Our client has decided to go for floor sanding, gap filling, of 170 sqm oak parquet flooring and finishing the floors in matt Lacquer.

How we completed the restoration works...

Parquet flooring restoration requires years of experience, skills and the right floor sanding equipment. Depending on the overall condition of the floors, the initial parquet floor sanding may start with coarser or medium grid. The aim of this stage is not only to remove the previous finish and get the floors to bare wood, but also to provide a smooth level throughout the entire floor. Some older parquet floors may require more thorough work at this time.

Next stage in the process of floor renovation was the application of the gap filling. We aim to apply resin filler in the end of the working day, so it settles properly overnight and we can repeat it on the following day , if required. The filler is after that removed by next step of the finishing process with medium grids .

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

The parquet flooring was consequently sealed with 1 coat of primer and 3 coats of Bona Traffic Lacquer in matt sheen with another light screen buff between the coats, for an excellent final touch to the finish.

Did you know this about oak flooring?

Oak is the king. It is hard, beautiful and resilient. While all other timbers may change colour and shape with time, oak does not (or very little) - it is eternal. Because its quite popular, oak planks and blocks, are available in various sizes when repairs to oak floors and parquet are needed.
