Beech reclaimed parquet fitting in New Cross SE14

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!

Floor sanding project in Brixton SW9

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. Floor sanding in Oval Floor renovation in progress Parquet sanding service Oak floor sanding project

Wood floor sanding, floor buffing and gap filling videos

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.
