Restoration Work

Restoration work can be anything from resanding and sealing an existing wooden floor all the way to a full restoration project, which can include numerous stages and processes.


The majority of the floors we come across require the first approach, referred to as 'hardwood floor refinishing' or 'floor polishing', this is a process by which the wood floor is resanded and sealed, it is used when you want to renovate an old floor that has become dull over time or when the floor has been damaged (i.e. scratched) and needs to be resanded in order to restore the natural beauty of the wood.


More complicated projects, such as; repairing existing floors, relaying old blocks, and restoring flood or fire damaged floors may be required in some circumstances. We regularly work with insurers and loss adjusters to try to come up with the best solution for each of our clients, and in most cases the floor can be saved.


The majority of our work is in residential properties, if you would like to see some examples of this work just follow these links to "Parquet Flooring" and "Wood Plank Flooring". However, we also work on a number of other floors, including; commercial properties, Churches, Pubs, Schools, Halls and Listed buildings. For some commercial floors, sometimes refreshing and recoating the floor may be the most cost effective and time efficient approach.

This Pitch Pine Parquet Floor in All Saints Church, Pocklington required a number of repairs across the floor before being completely resanded and sealed.

​The floor in the Masons Arms Pub in York was damaged during the floods, which meant the original old Oak Parquet Blocks had to be lifted and cleaned by hand before being relaid in a Parquet Herringbone pattern using modern techniques.

This Beech Wood Strip Gym Floor/School Hall in Pearson Primary School was in need of a complete resand, we then completed the court markings and resealed the floor.

This Maple Brick Pattern Parquet floor in Westfield Primary had been down so long that huge gaps had started to open up, we employed a variety of techniques to complete this floor, including finding similar Maple blocks to fill smaller gaps and contrasting Merbau blocks to deal with more problem areas while creating a nice feature.

The Maple Wood Strip floor in the Social Club in Wilberfoss was in need of a complete resand as in the past an area had been covered with carpet tiles and the rest of the floor had become dull due to high traffic.
