Flooring Company to get TV Exposure
A traditional wood floor restoration company is to get television exposure via the Channel 4 show Beeny’s Restoration Nightmares later this year. Jim Sanderson from Eco Flooring and Restoration UK will be making an appearance on the restoration reality TV show in three months time, in November.
The company, which particularly specialises in the recycling of old wooden parquet flooring, is responsible for the new floors in Rise Hall, the large Georgian house in Hull which is actually owned by Sarah Beeny, the presenter of the programme. She has been having the property restored to its former glory in order to use it as a venue for weddings.
Sanderson set up Eco Flooring and Restoration UK around 16 months ago, back in 2010, after spending two decades as a self-employed contractor in the flooring industry. Sanderson says that more and more handymen and joiners were starting to include fitting floors in their services and that that, coupled with the rise of DIY, led him to decide to start providing a different service, recycling and fitting reclaimed parquet and solid wood flooring. “We went back to basics and returned to the old fashioned technique of parquet flooring,” he says. “I use old products and do everything traditionally and find I get the best results that way.”
“I have to admit I was a bit sceptical that anyone could really save the floors at Rise Hall,” Beeny admits. “I am happy to say Jim has exceeded my expectations and they now look truly amazing.”
