Pitch Pine Parquet Block Floor Lancashire

By On August 31, 2015 No Comments

We are constantly looking at ways that we can keep our potential and existing clients well-informed about their particular type of wood floor and the best ways that they can maintain it.

Pitch pine is a hard, and therefore durable timber that is used for a variety of building uses. The term pitch pine describes a more solid variation; it is often recognised by having a closer wood grain pattern with fewer knots.

This pine floor had clearly experienced a lot of foot traffic over the years in this lovely family home. The image of the hallway shows the overall worn look of the floor. The entrance was in a much worse state and the family felt that it looked unsightly on entering their home.

Parquet floors are particularly beautiful and there is a definite resurgence in the laying and restoration of this wood flooring. It is great to see and offers a really unique statement for any building.

It seems to fit well with both modern decors and traditional homes, offering a functional, aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting floor type.

We fully sanded the entire floor and then finished it with a water based lacquer. A water-based finish is often quicker drying and is not a pollutant.

A wood floor is a stylish additional to your home and this includes any range from contemporary homes to more traditional properties.

We were employed to complete a full refit and restoration for this pine flooring in Ormskirk. Our client wanted the floor in this room to look more original to match the existing panelling and other feathers throughout the house.

To begin with we lifted a hard wood floor that had been laid on top of the original pine boards. The original pine floor were damaged beyond repair so a new floor was required.

The new wooden boards were cut from reclaimed pine timber from demolished buildings.

Once the floor had been entirely re-laid, it was fully sanded with our virtually dust free floor sanding process. It was then stained and lacquered to offer an exceptionally long-lasting and suitable wood finish.

Our client was so pleased with the end result and the way that it seemed to fit seamlessly in with their existing décor. They commented on our professional approach and didn’t imagine that the result that they gained was even possible. They felt as though they had added a valuable feature to their traditional home.

They also commented on how impressed they were with the way that we finished the job; we remove all debris and clean the floor. This leaves our clients with the job of sitting back and enjoying their beautiful, restored floor.

This is just another reason why so many homeowners select 1 Stop Floor Care to restore their wooden floor. Please contact our friendly staff today on 0800 852 7188.

Sanding Pine Preston

By On November 27, 2014 No Comments

Pine wood has a variety of uses and one of the most popular of these is pine flooring. It is a high-quality alternative characterised by its fine, straight and even grain pattern. Any knots in pine are tight and small which gives it a rustic wood finish.

As a wood floor it is durable and attractive in its appearance. When stripped back it is pale in colour, easy to cut and shape, and machines relatively well. This means that any pine restoration project can provide brilliant results.

We were approached to fully restore this pine floor in Preston. The finish of the floor, when we arrived, had lost its original lustre. It had become sun damaged over time and the discolouration left it looking unattractive and unappealing.

Rather than sanding the floor, the previous owner had then covered the wooden floor with carpet. The new owner moved into this house and during a larger restoration project revealed the wooden floor boards.

Stain Lacquer Wood Finish Ormskirk

By On August 21, 2014 No Comments

Wood FInishes LancashireThere are many different wood finishes available and the important thing to remember is that there is a reason for different types of finishes. They all have their place and work well in specific applications.

This is where our time-served experience is pivotal to the overall success of our wood floor sanding work.

Wood Finishes OrmskirkWe were approached to restore this wooden flooring in Ormskirk. We spent a lot of time discussing finishes and this allowed us to offer the advice that a stain lacquer would be the most appropriate wood finish for this particular job.

It is undeniable that wood floors are an incredibly attractive and functional flooring choice. The natural grain in wood is intrinsically striking. Floor finishes deteriorate over time and this means that they can start to look unattractive and discoloured. Heat variations and direct sunlight over a long period of time are harmful as the UV rays cause fading and discolouration.

To re-finish a wood floor it is important to restore it with dust free floor sanding. This process strips back the top layer and aged finish and prepares it for the selected new finish. The images show the end result that boasts the best-achievable natural look. Our client was really pleased as their restored floor complimented their newly renovated home.

Pine Floor Wood Finishes Formby

Through our time restoring wood flooring, we have identified that people often live with tired and worn-looking wood floors unnecessarily. This may be due to the misconception that employing a wood floor restoration specialist will be extremely costly or the fact that they are unaware of the services that are readily available.

This was certainly the case with this job; we were invited to quote for a full restoration of this pine floor in Formby. The initial images show clearly the state of the floor when we arrived. Our client was unaware of their choices in wood finishes as well as timescales of the work.

Firstly, it is important that we answer enquiries quickly and comprehensively. We look to start the process as we mean to go on and offer an honest approach from the point of enquiry through to completion of the work and beyond.

Secondly, we look to offer all relevant information and detail about the job so that our customers feel that they are making a well-informed decision. Our client was tired of their dark wood floor and wanted to brighten up the room.

We spoke to them about all of our wood finish variations and they made the decision that they wanted a varnished finish to their pine flooring. They did, in fact, want to achieve a high-shine varnished finish to bring a crisp and clean feel to their striking room, filled with impressive features.

The boards were fully sanded with our belt sander; the dark colouration was no more! We then used our edging tools to reach right up to the skirting boards and fireplace, offering a seamlessly finished room. This prepared the floor for the application of the varnish.

We hope that you agree that the finished look was nothing short of an impressive transformation. If you would like to enquire about our floor sanding services please call on 01257 270775.

Pine flooring is considered a soft wood, however, this does not mean that it is not a durable flooring choice that if looked after correctly, can last a lifetime. It is a relatively low-cost type of wood and can be successfully restored.

An advantage of a pine floor is that it is sometimes found as a subfloor in older properties. We were requested to provide a quotation for complete restoration of this pine flooring in Preston. We discussed our dust free floor sanding system and explained the repairs that we could complete to the damaged boards.

The areas of this home to be restored were extensive. It was important that we used our valued experience to make sure that the job was completed to the best possible result achievable. This client wanted to achieve a dark, natural tone to the wood floor so we discussed the application of a black hard wax oil.

This is a fascinating element of our work as individual tastes differ so much. It was also a great job to show case due to the immense improvement we were able to achieve. The wooden floor looked, to the untrained eye, that it was past its best and would likely need replacing. The images of the floor restoration process show the complete transformation.

Reclaimed Flooring LancashirePine wood flooring offers good value for money and is relatively straightforward to install.

They are also suitable for heavy domestic use in many areas of a home including hallway, dining room, lounge, bedroom and even conservatories.

Pine Flooring WiganThis Pitch Pine block floor was originally reclaimed from a Lancashire school. It had been fitted in a high traffic area and so it was badly worn and scratched. This is visible in the first images of the restoration project.
