Replacement of a parquet floor

This project required the uplift of a water damaged teak finger parquet floor,

before replacing it with a traditional Oak herringbone parquet, as the customer wanted a different style.

Firstly, to prepare for the new floor,

we screeded to improve floor levels, then applied an epoxy-resin damp proof membrane.

This was added because it was a pre-1970’s house and so it didn’t have a damp proof membrane that a more modern house would have.

The membrane stops moisture travelling through the concrete, which can cause problems for wood floors, and so adds an extra layer of protection.

We followed this with another coat of screed to improve the floor levels further.

Finally, installed with a two-plank boarder, the floor was sanded and finished with 3 coats of bona lacquers.

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
