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
We've fitted 45 sqm of reclaimed herringbone parquet flooring on plywood in a residential house in Tooting, SW17. Photos below. A difficulty we had with this job was that the parquet block was not an easy job to clean as we previously thought. It had to be cleaned from 5 sides to get it ready for laying which took us a very long time indeed. We laid parquet with a 2 block border. The laid afrormosia parquet was then sanded down and sealed with 3 coats of lacquer. In the end it was very much worth it - Afrormosia parquet has this warm and unusual shade to it and is rare to get now days. We could only see the beauty of the parquet at the very end and the floors were lacquered. Lacquer gave more depth to the colour of the block and also highlighted the grain of the wood.
We install herringbone parquet from £30.00 per sqm.
In this project we've fitted reclaimed herringbone Sapele parquet. All the blocks were cleaned individually. Before the flooring was installed, the areas were levelled with levelling screed. Floor sealed with 3 coats of varnish. The project was carried out in London Bridge area in Southwark, SE1.

Here is a video of floor sanding in action in an office in Brixton, oval area, SW9.
This oak parquet is a hard wood and needed more sanding, going through different sanding grits. We floor sand for a price of £12.00 per sq. metre.
