On this job the reclaimed parquet from Parquet Parquet has been cleaned on all 4 sides. Parquet is then laid in herringbone pattern, sanded, gap filled and lacquered (Junckers Strong).
Work has been carried out in Herne Hill, Norwood, SE24
We have a few photos of herringbone reclaimed parquet floor fitting in progress. This beech block is reclaimed which came from s school in Somerset. The block was actually made in Yugoslavia, when it was a single country, therefore the block is older than 20 years. Can't wait to see how the floor turns out once it is sanded and sealed! The job we are doing is in New Cross SE14
In this project we had 90 sqm of old victorian pine boards to sand, gap fill and seal with hard wearing varnish. 3 rooms upstairs, landing, 15 steps, dining and living room downstairs and hallway. The floor boards had many gaps between them which we filled with pine slivers, the floors were finished with Junckers Strong lacquer.
We've stripped the old white paint of these pine floor boards. Gap filled the floors with filler. The project was carried out at residential premises in Clapham, South London.
The rooms now have warm, homely feel. Floor sanding gives the floors new life for many years to come.
We sand the floors for £12.00 per sqm.
In this post we have a few photos of the work in progress in an office in Brixton (SW9). Oak parquet floors are sanded with our Frank Cobra sander and smaller sanders to do the edging.
Because the oak flooring is hardwood we need to take extra care and make sure we go through the grips from lowest to highest to leave the finished floor 100% smooth.
After the floor is sanded we buff the floor and then apply 3 coats of water based lacquer.
Here we've made 3 videos which show how the floor is sanded, buffed and gap filled. The floor is firstly sanded with different sanding grits to even out the floor and strip the old lacquer. After the floor is even and stripped to bare wood, we gap fill between the floor boards with a mix of saw dust and filler (this is not necessary but an option). After couple of ours the filler is dry and the floor can be sanded one more time. One of the finishing stages in preparing the floor for varnishing or oiling is buffing the floor using a wood floor buffer to make the floor as smooth and even as it can be. The floor buffing machine can even out any small inconsistencies left by a belt and edger sanders. Finally the floor is hoovered to get rid off any dust and the finish is applied.
We sand and buff the floor for £12.00 per square metre, gap fill the floor for £5.00 per square metre.
