Project: Versailles Panels Parquet Flooring Restoration in Richmond
Before The Works
The restoration of the oak versailles panels parquet flooring in this Richmond home was timely completed after many years of use. During our free home survey, we did thorough inspection of the floors and decided together with the client that all the floors need is a good fine strip and application of new waterbased lacquer in matt sheen.
How We Did It...
Our flooring restoration service always begins with detailed inspection of the floors and any parquet flooring repairs are completed where blocks are missing or movement is noticed. On this project the versailles panels were sound and solid and no repairs were required at all.
Parquet flooring restoration requires years of experience, skills and the right floor sanding equipment. Depending on the overall condition of the floors, the initial parquet floor sanding may start with coarser or medium grid. The task of the stage if not only to remove the previous finish and get the floors to bare wood, but also to provide a good level throughout the entire floor. Some older floors may require more thorough work at this time.
Sanding the floors with fine grids (80 - 120 gr) and a good rotary buff to the new oak timber surface with high grid buffing screens is the most important stage in the preparation of the parquet flooring for finishing.
Floors were consequently sealed with a coat of primer and two new coats of Bona Mega waterbased lacquer in matt sheen with another light screen buff between the coats, for excellent final touch to the finish.
