Search for "prefinished"
This is a commonly asked question, but it's impossible to answer with an exact figure, as there are so many different components which affect the price. This expert advice blog outlines these influencing factors, allowing you to be more informed when it comes to determining the costs involved.
For our latest project we removed a damaged jatoba wooden floor from a house in Wimbledon, replacing it with a lighter pre-oiled oak floor. The new flooring was fitted in two reception rooms, three flights of curving stairs and the landings.
Introducing pattern into the home can sometimes be a challenge, but the results can be spectacular. In terms of using pattern in flooring, it’s hard to match the grandeur and luxurious feel of Versailles panels.
The floor was carefully chosen by our clients which also had specific requirements for the design features. Our technical and aesthetic advice was taken also.
This was an extensive project which required the involvement of all the Fin Wood team. We had to install more than 350sqm of engineered oak boards on four different levels with various types of subfloors and conditions. The stairs were cladded also with custom solid oak boards matching the floor boards.
Because we believe that wooden floors should be "crafted for life" we will focus on how to approach a project of this kind. Indeed, when it comes to wooden floors, we have an overwhelming number of choices in terms of species, colours, dimensions, structural types, patterns, installation methods and materials.
Although demanding we love tackling the special projects which require skills, care, attention to detail, full concentration but most of all thorough assessment and planning. We can say about this project that it was very technical and through this we managed to achieve a beautiful decorative and pleasant result.
For this project we were in for a not such a pleasant surprise. As usual when having furniture we started by moving it in a safe side. The old laminate was removed as well as the old parquet which was hidden under the laminate.
All wooden floors need to be sealed, finished, to extend their lifespan and to keep them looking wonderful. Without finish, oil or lacquer, the wood grains are totally exposed to dirt and liquids thus they will stain and get dirty from the first touch.
This project was quite unique through its extended size, about 120sqm, irregular perimeter of the surface, the absence of skirting which was replaced with a shadow gap and special integrated panel doors.
