We are experienced in handling all manner of timber floor repairs. From stabilising bouncy floors, replacing bearers and joists to replacing entire floors. Whether it be a result poor of sub-floor ventilation, rising damp or flood damage we can take care or the restoration works from start to finish.
While wood floors look great, they do require a significant amount of upkeep to ensure that they stay looking their best and avoid costly touch-ups. Ongoing maintenance will depend on the treatment so to extend the life of your coating it is important to remove dirt and grit as it can cause fine scratching and wear on your floor. We recommend a broom or electrostatic mop or if using a vacuum cleaner please ensure the head will not scratch the coating. As with any coating system, the regular removal of dirt and grit is the key to your floors protection and longevity and we also recommend only mopping as required. Please also ensure all mobile furniture such as chairs have adequate protection to eliminate any unnecessary premature wearing.
In many cases, particularly in the early stages of damage, floors can be repaired by simply top-coating to cover minor scuffs and scratches and in some cases can bring the floor back to near new condition. We have a good eye for identifying timber species, so in the case of replacing damaged sections, single boards or patching where walls have been removed we can find the appropriate wood to match the condition and age of your current flooring so the repair is not obvious and quite often invisible.
If any boards have begun to warp or are no longer level, we can sand them down to create a smooth finish and fill in any gaps or cracks with custom-mixed fillers designed to most closely match your existing flooring. Sanding is also helpful in eliminating scratches. Applying new sealant over the newly sanded areas brings back your floor’s lustre and gleam.
We have suppliers for both new and quality recycled timber so can replace old floorboards with individually selected reclaimed boards to best match.
On the more serious end of the damage spectrum are severe warping and wood rot. In cases such as these, we will inspect the damage on a case-by-case basis in order to determine if the flooring can be repaired or if it will need to be replaced entirely. Either way, we are equipped to handle it. We will discuss all options with you before beginning any wooden floor repairs work so that you can make an educated decision about how to proceed and have a good understanding of all options available.
