Welwyn Garden city
A considerable number of buildings in Welwyn Garden City were built during the era of parquet. Subsequently, being parquet specialists, we spend a reasonable amount of time, working in this area.
We recently completed a project on Knightsfield where the parquet floor had been covered with carpet for a number of years. In addition to this, there were some carpet residues on the surface of the floor. The carpet gripper rods were still in place and had to be taken up carefully. As one of the fireplaces had been previously removed, there was an unsightly area of concrete that had to be replaced.
Using one of our contacts for reclaimed parquet flooring based near Welwyn Garden City, we managed to source a very good match with the mahogany floor and set upon filling the area with parquet.
The glue was allowed to set overnight and we commenced sanding the following day.
After removing the residues from the previous finish, it was apparent the floor had a lovely grain to it which was previously unnoticed. After mass gap filling, the floor was then ready to coat. After discussions with the customer, a maintenance-free Bona Mega finish was chosen. After the initial Bona Classic Prime, two further coats of Bona Mega were applied in a silk finish. This brought out the natural grain of the wood and lightened the room considerably. With the correct maintenace procedures and floor aftercare, this parquet will last for many years to come.
