Sanding Parquet Floors Accrington

By On March 26, 2016 No Comments

We are always incredibly proud of the calibre of work we are able to gain. This pays testament to our provision and the hard work we put into delivering a second-to-none service in comparison to our competition.

We were invited to restore this beautiful parquet floor in St James Church in Accrington. The process of wood restoration is always a special one and tells a real story; but this job, in particular, provided a real sense of achievement as the results were so well appreciated.

The flooring in the church had been well used and no longer offered the appearance of beautiful parquet flooring. In fact, it looked dark, drab and uninviting. Funding for such work is often challenging so the fact that we were able to complete this job also offers potential clients with the assurance of the cost-effectiveness of our service.

St James Church was undergoing a lot of work and the wood floor restoration played an important role in transforming the space. The dark coating, years of wear and tear, scratches and dents were fully sanding using our dust free sanding system.

This left the floor ready to be finished. Although the theory and explanation of that process sounds simple and straightforward it does demand a lot of skill and tailoring. The sanding machinery that we use requires knowledge and there are different techniques required in the use of the different machines.

It is important to take your time whilst sanding any wooden floor.  To rush a job would likely result in a less than satisfactory result. The images tell the story of the restoration from the start, through the job and the striking result achieved on completion.

The wooden flooring looked like new but at the same time respected the age and heritage of it through skilled restoration. If you would like to find out more about how to sand wood floors please call our helpful staff on 0800 852 7188.

Our clients felt that their floor darkened the space with the way that it looked as well as being uninviting and unsightly. They wanted a more natural wood finish to bring out the natural grain pattern of the wood boards.

Samlesbury Hall is quoted to be “A haven for history lovers where the past meets the present” and nothing could be further from the truth in the results that were achieved in the restoration of their beautiful parquet floor.

Floor Sanding PrestonWe were invited to fully restore the coffee lounge wood floor in Samlesbury Hall. The requirement was that the process needed to be completed in one day. We worked conscientiously to complete the task as required and the results were truly magnificent.

After the floor was fully sanded with our dustless sanding system it was coated with a quick drying hard wax oil from the Pallmann range of floor coatings. Our expertise allows us the detailed knowledge required in order to select the most appropriate wood finishes for any particular job.

This needs to take into account the expected use, time restraints and condition of the floor. The staff were so pleased with the finish that we achieved;

The parquet flooring complimented the ethos of the building and allowed visitors to the Hall to appreciate the heritage of the floor, whilst being wowed at the lustrous appearance.

Parquet Floor Restoration Bury

A true reward for our wood restoration work is when we visit a home or business where they feel as though their wood floor is past saving. This is when a true transformation can be completed and where our services are fully appreciated.

We went to quote for the restoration of this parquet floor in Bury. The owners called us as a last resort before lifting the floor and replacing it. They were truly shocked when we discussed the restoration process and the brilliant results that we were confident that we could achieve.

We refitted the loose parquet blocks, filled any gaps and then finished the floor with a hard wearing commercial floor lacquer. The result was an exceptionally beautiful parquet floor.

This is an outstanding example of parquet flooring. The wood pattern creates a real statement and the restored floor only worked to compliment this; our clients were so pleased with the result. Below is a testimonial that the owners sent onto us after completion of the work:

“From the moment I met Ian from 1st Stop Floorcare I knew we were in the hands of an expert! His knowledge and enthusiasm for restoring our floor was exceptional. He gave a detailed description of how he would be able to renovate our floor and advise on the best techniques to meet our requirements.

The works itself was carried out with minimal disruption and the finish is spectacular. My wife and I were pleased not only with the end result but the fact that nearly zero clear up was required; all we were left with was two bin bags of dust that we had to simply put in the bin. Fantastic!

The floor was ready to use within a day and we had furniture back in by the following evening.

I’d thoroughly recommend Ian and his co-worker Dave for any flooring restoration job. Professional, tidy, competitively priced and both have a good sense of humour! Cheers guys”

Fiver Finger Block Parquet Flooring Leyland

By On November 27, 2013 1 Comment

Parquet flooring is often thought to be linked with older type properties. They do have a traditional feel but they are growing in popularity and have been reinvented as a contemporary wood flooring choice.

Their appearance is varied as parquet floors can be laid in many ways; different patterns allows for true individuality. They can be laid in either simple or intricate design, using angular, block and geometrical patterning.

We were asked to restore this five finger block parquet flooring in Leyland. The floor was scratched and scuffed and required our dust free floor sanding to restore it. Our floor sanding machinery carefully and efficiently sands the floor boards evenly.

Once the sanding process had been completed, a hard wax oil was applied. This was chosen due to the finish that our customer wanted to achieve. Our services restore wood floors, avoiding costly replacement. The below images show the restoration process from start to finish.
