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'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.

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.
