what can we do for your wooden floor


When its comes to repairing your floorboards it is best to keep as much of the existing floor as possible, getting a good colour match on the existing wood can be a challenge due to the age, species and country of origin.

We always aim to repair floors with reclaimed wood of the same species. It's important to use reclaimed wood when it comes to repairs as new wood can look extremely different due to changes in moisture content, cell structure and chemical composition as time goes on, which can significantly change the appearance.

Pine slivers on pine floorboards


Slivers can only really be used in gaps 3mm or over. Gaps under 3mm can be filled with a specialist resin which is mixed with the dust from the sanding process, thus ensuring good adhesion with a colour that matches the existing floor.


Slivers and filling of floorboards is mainly used to stop draughts and keep heat in on suspended floors (floors where the floorboards are laid across joists with a gap below the joists).


Staining (changing the colour of your wooden floors)


The best way to change the colour of a wood floor is to use solvent based stain. We use solvent based stain because the solvent gets the dye into the wood and then evaporates so it is very unusual to get any reactions in the floor.


Examples of different stain shades can be applied to your newly sanded floor to enable you to select the correct one for your environment.

Sealing your floorboards


We believe the best way to finish a wooden floor is with a top quality commercial grade lacquer. We apply a prime coat with two or three coats of matt, silk matt or gloss depending on what look you are wanting to achieve.

These are very hard wearing, easy to keep clean and offer your wood floor the very best protection.
