One of our recent flooring projects was flooring Harpenden Roundwood Park School. We received an invitation to Quote for the floor by way of recommendation from Nowerhill School, Harrow (where we had previously restored parquet floors). By coincidence, we had also undertaken work for the Business Development Manager at Roundwood School and, being satisfied with our floor sanding credentials, we were duly appointed to undertake the work.
The flooring Harpenden project in question was 250m2 of Herringbone Teak flooring which was much in need of restoration.
After completing the necessary safety assessments and clearing the area, we commenced sanding with a fairly coarse grit to remove a substantial build up of previous finishes.
We used progressively finer sanding grits and finished sanding with an 80 grit on the rotating Trio finishing machine. Following this we then proceeded to apply a coat of Junckers Prelak, the purpose of which is to promote the adhesion of subsequent coats; it also helps avoid side-bonding of the floor. Further to the Prelak, we applied three coats of Junckers Hp Commercial. This is a two-part water based polyurethane lacquer designed to stand up to the rigours of heavy use.
Once completed, the floor was restored to its former self and all expectations were exceeded. (We have recently completed further work for our point of contact at the school.)
