Floor Staining & Finishing

Our Floor Staining & Finishing services are completed using professional Light-fast stains MylandsMorrells. There’s many colours to choose from, which can be viewed from our colour charts. We also use tinted oils by Bona & Floor Service 2k.

The key to perfect Floor Staining mainly lies in the sanding process. The floor sanding has to be, as we say ‘Spot on’ as any minor imperfections will show indefinitely, meaning a full re-sand!

It goes without saying however this is not something we want to do, nor would we want to take another whole layer from the floors life, as this will in turn reduce the amount of times it can be sanded again in the future.

So with the above in mind, you can rest assure your in good hands when we expertly stain your floors, two boards at a time on our hands and knees.

Floor Finishing

Polyurethane lacquer is our most frequently used product when carrying out Floor Finishing. Polyurethane has low Volatile Organic Compounds, Low odor and best of all it’s Water-based, meaning it doesn’t take days to dry as found with older varnishes. A fantastic product to use on all floor types and available in a wide variety of sheen’s such as; Invisible, Ultra Matt, Matt, Satin and Gloss. Our preferred products are by far Bona, Loba & Floor Service 2k.

As standard our Floor Finishing consists of 3 good coats of Lacquer. On commercial flooring we apply 1 base coat, followed by 2 coats of 2-part commercial grade Lacquer. Bona Traffic Hd gets our vote!

Oil Finish

For an Oil finish we highly recommend Floor Service 2k, which is combined with an activator to speed up curing and add additional durability.

It will not require yearly top ups as found with surface layer Hardwax Oils. Floor Service 2k seeps deep into the pours of the timber, forming an excellent bond with the molecular structures. It effectively becomes part of the wood as apposed to a layer on top of the surface.

-Every project is completed with the finest professional finishes guaranteed!

Floor Maintenance

Ideally your floors require a maintenance when they start to show signs of wear. This is usually found in high traffic areas. Acting sooner rather than later is strongly advised, as this can prevent any long term damage to the floors.

Details for after care are provided with every project we carry out.

Our most common maintenance carried out on floors is a screen & seal. The process involves cleaning, creating a key using a mesh screen and finally re-coating with Lacquer or Oil (after a thorough vacuuming of course!).

Our Floor Maintenance Services also include:

  • Scrub & Revive
  • Cleaning
  • Buffing & Oiling
