Floor sanding, gap filling, floor repairs of parquet flooring in Putney

Before the works...

The pine parquet flooring in this Putney house was overall looking tired and in serious need of restoration. During our obligation-free survey, we did a thorough inspection of the floors and discussed with the client all possible options.

Our client has decided to go for floor sanding, gap filling, floor repairs, of 30 sqm pine parquet flooring and finishing the floors in matt lacquer.

How we completed the renovation works...

Our floor renovation service begins with detailed inspection of the floors and any repairs to the parquet flooring will be completed in this initial stage. In this project approx. we have repaired approx. of parquet flooring.

Parquet flooring renovation 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 task of this stage is not only to remove the previous finish and get the floors to bare wood, but also to provide a good 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 second half of the working day, so it settles properly overnight and we can repeat it on the following morning , 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 pine 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 2 coats of Bona Mega 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 pine flooring?

Pine is softwood timber widely used in construction for structural and finishing elements, due to its resilience to moisture. As a porous wood, rich in resins when its fresh, pine will shrink over time slightly, but it also changes colour and makes the original floorboards, which we love to repair & restore, such attractive asset to our environment.
