YourLondonBuilders.co.uk use the latest continuous belt floor sanders and mobile dust extraction units which make the process of floor sanding virtually dust free - very important for people who suffer from dust allergies.
Some dust is unavoidable but this is minimised by careful use of masking and screening combined with frequent vacuuming.
Professional edging sanders are used to get right into the corners and edges without causing damage to skirting boards and doors timbers.
Floors are normally sanded three times using coarse, medium and fine sand paper. This progressive sanding will remove scratches, dents, pits, and any old finishes on the floor.
Most wooden floors will have gaps which need filling before sanding and finishes are applied. Filling the gaps has major benefits including
Smaller gaps (up to 4mm) are filled with a mixture of resin and saw dust taken from the floor. One of our preferred methods for floor gap filling is to use reclaimed wooden slivers. These are wedge shaped slivers of wood cut to size , glued and hammered into place. After the glue has set the sliver can be sanded down - matching the original wood in the floor. Only old wood is used for gap filling slivers. New wood would change its shape over time and is unsuitable to use as a gap filler.
Stains are available in a range of colours from light oak to antique mahogany. Colour washes can be any colour including white. These options can be used to colour match the floor to the room furnishings, or to give the floor a more uniform look.
Oiling gives a floor a classic and natural look. Available in matt or gloss and quite easy to maintain - any scratches are simply re-oiled. However each coat can take as long as 24 hours to dry.
Varnishing floors gives a hard wearing durable finish which is easy to maintain. We generally use water based varnishes which dry quickly, are odourless and are kind to the environment. There are two main options offered - gloss or matt.

As well as sanding and gap filling, wooden floors will often need further preparation. Entire floor boards may need replacing - we use reclaimed flooring to achieve a match.
Rotten or badly decayed floor joists may need complete or partial replacement with treated timber.
If the room contains a fireplace it may have a concrete hearth. We can remove this and replace it with reclaimed floor boards to give the floor a continuous look.
Woodworm is sometimes a problem that need treating and finally skirting boards may need to be removed, replaced and raised slightly to accommodate the new flooring
