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.

Jo, Paul, Nick and team were impeccable from start to finish. We experienced a few hiccups initially due to no fault of ours, or theirs (bad workmanship in a job we had done to the floor previously), however the team dealt with everything with professionalism, giving us lots of support, and definitely made a tough job look easy.

It even meant they had to compromise themselves a little along the way, and for this we are very grateful. They are all genuinely lovely people and couldn’t do enough for us.

We trusted them implicitly throughout with both their thoughts and ideas, and with the keys to our house. The floor speaks for itself in the quality and finish; it is absolutely outstanding. No words can describe how happy we are with how it looks. We couldn’t have wished for a nicer or better company to make our first house feel like our dream home.

This company deserves every bit of custom it gets and we can’t recommend it enough. Thank you for everything!

Just to say how wonderful the floor in St Deiniol’s Church now looks! Who knew that such a beautiful floor was under all that muck!

You have done a fabulous job and I can’t thank you enough. I hope everyone brings their slippers from now on… don’t want to spoil!
