wood floor staining in london & the home counties since 1995
Stains are used to change the colour of wood, such as darkening a pine floor. Stains, as opposed to painting, can emphasis the wood grain rather than masking it.
Floor stains are applied by roller or brush. We generally use oil based stains from WS Jenkins of London but can use other stains.
We will put down stain samples for the customers approval as stains react to different floors. Normally we then finish with two coats of lacquer or oil. Sometimes we can change colour of the floor by using a tinted primer or oil. Again samples are laid for approval.
Tinted applications only work if the floor has not too much tanning within the wood.
We have been serving customers since 1995 in London and the Home Counties. We offer floor sanding and restoration services and will come to your home or premises to do a free consultation.

Yes, definitely. It is almost always the best choice to sand and refinish wood floors. This is because hardwood is so long lasting. In fact, a hardwood floor can be sanded and refinished up to ten times before it needs to be replaced.
We currently have a Special Offer on from £12 per square metre.
Hardwood floors are hygienic, practical and very stylish, they do not harbour parasites as carpets do and they are virtually maintenance-free. Very easy to clean, they do not have funky odours from the previous occupants’ pets or tobacco, wood is also a great heat conductor, cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
When sanding wood floors the amount of wood that is removed is directly related with the coarseness of the sandpaper used. With high-level coarse sandpaper that is used by professionals, about one sixth of an inch of wood is removed.
We want your varnish to give your floors year and years of protection. We do not use any of the varnishes found in D.I.Y shops or stores. We use only high-quality professional varnish produced by Leading supplier Bonakemi. It is water-based has very little odour and gives a beautiful hard-wearing finish. This varnish is sold exclusively to us direct from Bonakemi
The simple answer to that question is to decorate first. What we would ask is that the last coat of paint to go on the skirting board be applied after we have done the floor.
By the way, we also have a team of professional decorators if you would like to paint the room before sanding or installation.
