To hide an old parquet floor under the carpet is such a big put off. Truly, parquet floors are decorative and look elegant. To keep your wood flooring healthy and beautiful, it is important that it is restored to its full glory. Installing a new parquetry is not a very cheap option, therefore to repair and restore old original parquet flooring is quite common.
To bring it back to its former glory, experienced wood flooring contractors will look for missing, damaged or loose blocks. Generally, reclaimed blocks can be sourced to fit in the missing gaps, but one has to be careful that wood species and colours remain the same. Exactly following the laying pattern for best result is the key and an experienced contractor would adhere to match the restored block with the existing pattern on your parquet floor. Cleaning the blocks and grooves the underfloor for traces of bitumen or coal tar is essential as it is no longer allowed inside the houses. Always level the underfloor before reinstalling the blocks. All the gaps must be closed adequately, though, both modern and old parquet floors do have tiny gaps due to seasonal changes in air humidity. One of the most important step in restoration and repair work is sanding of the wood floors. For best results and uniform finish, it is important that the whole area is sanded again for smooth finish. McKay Flooring is acclaimed company in floor sanding Glasgow.
