Floor repairs of floorboards in Ealing

Before the renovation works...

The pine floorboards in this Ealing house was overall looking tired and in urgent 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 repairs, of 30 sqm pine floorboards and finishing the floors in matt lacquer.

How we made it happen...

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

The thickness of the pine victorian floorboards used for properties is approx. 20 mm when laid. Pine timber shrinks with the time and also becomes thinner every time the floors are restored. The minimal thickness, after which floorboards cannot be restored any more is approx. 15 mm.

Depending on the overall condition and level throughout, the initial floor sanding of the floorboards may start with coarser or medium grid. The purpose of the preparatory floorboards sanding stage is to remove the previous finish and level the floorboards throughout.

Unless the victorian floorboards have been sanded in past 10 - 15 years, they will usually not have a good level. Floorboards covered previously by carpets, may have cupping and larger gaps.

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 floorboards was consequently sealed with 1 coat of primer and 3 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.
