1780’s Handcut Herringbone Floor Restored To It’s Former Glory

This herringbone floor and marquetry border was originally installed in the 1780’s, with each piece of flooring being handcut on site at the time – making for a very interesting restoration! We knew this was going to be quite the job, however we were up for the challenge!

What We Did

We uplifted and installed 9mm ply over the floorboards, then relayed, sanded/refinished with one coat of Bona craft oil 2k Clay and finished with 2 of Bona traffic HD.

From start to finish the whole team at Chester Wood Flooring were professional, helpful and friendly. We were given advice in the showroom. Samples were brought to our home so we could see them in our room of choice and flooring was fitted brilliantly. I would absolutely recommend and use them again!

Thanks Jo, Paul and team, it has been a delight to work with you from first contact through to completion. You’ve provided knowledgeable, practical and friendly advice and accommodating when our timing and needs changes. The floor looks lovely and flows in the way we hoped. The concierge on site made a point to mention to me how tidy and considerate the team was. Thank you

This was our second time using Chester Wood Flooring, incredibly easy to deal with and very professional team, only positive things to say from start to finish. Great advice whilst picking the flooring type and an amazing finish once fitted by the friendly team of fitters. Highly recommend!
