Parquet flooring

Parquet flooring is made of angular wooden blocks which can be laid in many different patterns and styles.
Some popular patterns for parquet flooring are herringbone, basket weave, bersailles and chevron. You can choose from a range of different wood types all suitable for parquet flooring, including: Walnut, Oak, Mahogany, Teak, Cherry and more.

If you already have a parquet floor and you are looking to restore it to it's former glory, then it is a much cheaper option than installing a new parquet floor. Missing blocks will be replaced, the flooring is cleansed and sanded down, any gaps will be filled in and repaired and then a finish will be applied.

Oak Flooring

Oak flooring is both durable and hard wearing, beautiful to look at, and will last a lifetime. Because oak flooring is water resistant it is suitable for all areas of the home including the kitchen and bathroom.

Plank Flooring

Plank flooring is made up of solid wood planks which are both durable and good to look at.

Engineered Flooring

Engineered flooring has planks that are made up of two or more layers of wood. The top layer which is visible once the flooring is installed is called lamella. It is the most common type of wood flooring used around the world. There are several different types of engineered wood floors including: Veneer, Acrylic, Laminate and Vinyl floors.

Guide To Wooden FlooringHOW DOES IT WORK?

The process for sanding and refinishing your wooden floors involves the following:

  1. First we will clean your flooring thoroughly in preparation for sanding.
  2. Sanding the wooden floors - next we begin sanding the wooden floor until all the old surface is removed and smoothed out.
  3. Staining the wooden floor - if you have decided to have the floor stained rather than leaving the natural colour of the wood then the wooden floor is now stained with one or two coats.
  4. Finishing the wooden floors - Once the staining is complete and dry the floors are coated and given a professional finish with a polyurethane lacquer. Once the floors are finished they will look amazing and you won't believe it is the same floor!
