AT ARBOR FLOORING WE HAVE OVER 20 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN WOOD FLOOR RESTORATION 

If you are fortunate enough to have existing wood flooring, you will find our services particularly useful. 

Wooden floor restoration is the process and journey by which old floors are returned to their former glory. With older properties, particularly Victorian terraced houses, over the years there will usually have been much internal alteration, resulting in less than perfect flooring. 
Often two reception rooms will have been knocked through, leaving an unsightly strip of wood or concrete between the two areas which will require remedial work in order to merge the separate floors. 
 
There are also repeated fireplace replacements whereby previous owners have removed the original fireplace, only to subsequently be replaced with one of the era. As fashions dictate, original fireplaces are now being reinstated, occasionally leaving an unsightly strip of concrete under the hearth; where necessary, this can be removed and infilled with reclaimed wood. 
 
Also, where radiators have been moved a number of times over the years, pipe holes can be plugged with reclaimed wood and sanded over.In addition, floorboards will have suffered a certain amount of damage over time, often from unsympathetic plumbers who’ve assumed that a carpet will be fitted and the boards never seen again. Where required, replacement boards can be fitted.

Modern heating systems reduce the relative humidity levels in a room, often resulting in the flooring drying out and gaps appearing between the floorboards. 
 
Part of our company encompasses the installation of a whole host of wood flooring types, such as Parquet flooring, strip flooring, floor boards & reclaimed flooring, we are well positioned to undertake a complete service in terms of wood floor restoration. The process involves assessing the condition of the existing floor, it may be necessary to undertake any sub floor repairs, such as joists or damaged floor screed. 
 
We are also able to complete any additional floor repairs. We can also source matching flooring, be it Reclaimed Floorboards, Strip flooring or Parquet flooring. 
Subsequent to any repairs required, using our low dust floor sanders, following a simple process we are able to sand the floor back to a smooth uniform finish. If there are gaps in the floor, these can be filled with either slivers of wood or floorboard gap filler. This comprises of a mixture of resin & fine sawdust from the sanding process. Mixed into a paste, it is then trowelled into the floor, allowed to harden, prior to a further fine sanding to remove any residue on the surface of the wood floor. 
 
If required, it is then possible to alter the appearance of the floor with either a wood floor stain or coloured wax oil. Further to this process, it is then a question of sealing the floor. Floor lacquers, are generally perceived to be a more practical solution with less maintenance involved & better able to repel spillages & stains. Hard wax oil finishes can look better in certain situations, but require more maintenance. This involves coating the floor every year or so with an additional coat.
