If your looking to add character and warmth to your home then brand new floorboards can often look a bit industrial and rather out of place without their natural wear and tear. With the help of a professional finish some quirky sanding, GJP can give your floorboards the desired distressed look so your floors can look homely in days as opposed to decades!
Parquet floors are somewhat rare these days since they fell out of fashion towards the end of the 20th century and loads found themselves being torn out of buildings everywhere. Fashion always comes back around though and today, potential buyers and landlords are seeking far and wide for London’s remaining parquet floors in order to find, buy and preserve them. It doesn’t take much, a simple refinish and the correct floor sanding techniques can restore a parquet floor exactly as it was invented years ago.
Everything can be engineered these days and this certainly doesn’t stop at flooring. If you’re not blessed with original wood flooring in your home, it is possible to fit a wooden floor over your existing floor or even just the underlay.
Floors that are used for dancing on are in constant need of restoration and repair. What’s more, they need particular care and attention as you couldn’t apply the same products to a ballroom floor as you would to your home with the perfect, distressed floorboards. Smooth, even surfaces are a must for dancers as the tiniest crack can leave them unsuitable to dance on. Not a job easily carried out by anyone either but have no fear, our team at GJP are experts at floor repairs too!
