The parquet is sanded flat, we only remove the minimum amount necessary, as too much sanding reduces your wooden floors lifespan. Its best to have the floors restored properly, with the toughest lacquers and have a good maintenance routine to look after your floor.
This is the area with the parquet repair, the sanding is nearly completed – virtually dust free !!
After a good tidy up, the replacement parquet is ready for sanding. The first sanding test area shows that underneath both surfaces, the wood is the same. Old sealer varnish turns browny – yellow under sunlight. The latest lacquers do not yellow.
The original parquet being carefully sanded to remove the old sealer.
This Community centre had a water leak. The parquet blocks expanded and as a temporary repair the parquet was replaced by plywood sheets.
Unfortunately the existing parquet was disposed off.
The council asked Barfords to replace this repair so the floor blended and was more fit for purpose.
