Why Restore Your Wood Floor?

This may seem like a question that is easy to answer, right? Choosing to restore your wooden floor will inevitably save you money on the cost of replacement. That should surely be enough to help your decision process.

There are other elements that can and should be considered. A restored wooden floor is full of character and fits seamlessly with the existing surroundings. An exceptional part of the process is that you have the ability to select a finish that is individual to your needs.

Wood Grain OxfordFloor sanding is a cost-effective alternative to replacement. As durable as a wood floor is it really is no match for daily use. Most wooden floors can be refinished; experience is vital to the end result.

All it would take is for a belt sander to be held still for too long for damage to be caused to a wood floor. This may create an uneven surface or even determine whether the surface could be refinished again in the future. The surface layer is removed; if too much is sanded then this will reduce the possibility of future resurfacing.

Floor Finishing Services

There are varying levels of service and this will be fully determined at the point of the survey. It may be that if the floor has light usage that a light sand and re-finish can be completed. This will be reflected in the pricing of the job and a maintenance coat can be applied many times.

It is important that you are well-informed throughout the process. We take great pride in this aspect and will always discuss the process of floor sanding with you. It is our job to offer reassurance of our professional approach. If you would like to discuss a wood restoration job please call today on 07517 602265 or 01865 803449. We will do all we can to ensure the smooth-running of your floor restoration project.

Floor Sanding Quick-fire Questions

When sanding wooden floors there are many things that can occur that will require the process to be tailored. This is where experience pays dividends as this can happen throughout the individual stages of the sanding process.

Wood Restoration OxfordIt is great to identify clients who are looking to understand more about floor sanding. It may be that they have questions about the process or how to maintain their newly restored floor afterwards. Either way, we will always take the time to answer any questions that our clients have.

This is part of our service that is offered as standard. Here are some of the questions that have been raised:

How long will the process take?

An average room with an example size of 4m x 4m will take around 2-3 days. There are factors that can alter this timing such as extensive wood repairs. However, we ensure to keep our clients well-informed throughout the process.

When are we able to use the room again?

There are a range of wood finish products that can be used. Some varnish products allow you to walk on the floor as little as eight hours after it has been applied. This would always be light footfall and with socks on. In order to allow the finish product to fully cure; we always advise that furniture should not be replaced for a couple of days after the restoration process.

Is a lot of dust created in the sanding process?

This was certainly the case with traditional methods of floor sanding. Dust free floor sanding machinery is now used in order to complete the sanding process. This means that virtually no dust is created as the particles are drawn away via a high-performance filtration system. We will always take precautions and cover necessary areas as this allows for minimal disruption and faster clean up.

Does Your Wood Floor Make The Grade?

Many individuals are not aware that varying wood grades are available. This allows you to set a budget to which you need to achieve. It is understood that different grading systems are available, however, the following information works to offer an overview of these.

It is important to remember that wood is a natural product and therefore may mean that some of the below parameters are slightly challenged. This only goes to produce a wood floor that is truly unique and simply stunning.

Wood Floors OxfordThe following images are purely offered as a guide with regards to grading; they are used for illustrative purposes in order to provide an insight into the possible differences.

A top-level, premium-grade wood floor:

A prime grade wood board will have very few (small) knots, there will be minimal visible defects, the grain will be tight and there are virtually no imperfections. The result of a floor using a prime grade level will offer a uniform appearance.

Sanding wooden floors OxfordMid-level grade wood floors:

A mid-grade product will offer a variety of boards that are virtually prime boards, however are mixed with boards with more knots. These knots can be larger in their appearance and slight imperfections (in colour and grain) can be found.

This offers more character to the floor and will look slightly less uniformed.

Wood floor grades OxfordA lower-level grade wood floor:

The colour variation of this grade will be greater. Knots are larger in their appearance and less uniformed. Whilst it is accepted that this may not work for everyone; some would argue that a floor laid with this grade of wood will offer a truly unique statement with incredible character.

You are not going to come to the conclusion that this is a place that cares deeply about providing a positive appearance.

You are immediately assured that the owners invest the necessary and required care into their appearance and that this is likely to flow into other aspects of their life or business.
