Full restoration required

This complete restoration project involved replacing damaged planks with matching planks, expert sanding and refinishing the ground floor. Since the installation 20 years ago, there hasn’t been any maintenance, just regular and occasionally abrasive cleaning. Over the years a few cleaning mistakes meant that the floor was deeply stained and these stains couldn’t be removed by normal sanding. We considered replacing the damaged boards but as the floor was bespoke and not factory made we knew we were unlikely to find the same product to replace it with. For bespoke floors we always recommend customers keep back a spare pack of wood for future maintenance. However in this case, we were able to custom make new boards to match the length, width and thickness of the existing floor.

The benefits of dust-free sanding

The customer’s well designed home was full of expensive artwork, paintings and statues worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. The customer arranged for most pieces to be removed but some remained and had to be well protected from dust and damage. Although it can be messy work, sanding is the bedrock for a proper finish. If you skip or rush this essential stage and rush you can forget about a nice, quality finish. Our collection of dust-free Laegler sanding equipment was ideal for this project as the sanders collect the dust as it is produced.
