What was the job?

To be honest we didn’t work at the castle but we did venture to the Berkshire town of Windsor to restore the wood floors in a lovely residential property.

Challenges

Large gaps had formed between some of the boards and there were also holes in places which required our attention.

There were exposed wires in places where electrical sockets had not yet been fitted, which could have posed a potential risk.

Areas:

Room 1- 13.3 m2

Room 2- 13.3 m2

Room 3- 16.9 m2

Time taken:

2 days

What we did 

Before sanding could begin, we had to repair the floor in order to protect the machines and ensure a high quality job. When floorboards had been replaced or just refitted, we were able to start the three step process.

With the floor sanded, we added a cosmetic gap fill made of resin and wood slivers. This also made it easier to apply light stain and four coats of lacquer to the pine surface.

The results

Without gaps and holes, the floor is less of a trip hazard and the surface is stronger. It will be easier for the homeowner to maintain and means the room is a lot more presentable to guests.

The lacquer will preserve the colour and add resistance to scuffs.
