Not only had vandals broken into this village hall and completely trashed the floor using indelible paints and bleaches they’d also signed it with their “Tag name”.

Our remit was to to restore the floor to pre-damage condition. As you can see in the photo, the floor was not in good order to start with as the herringbone had opened up with what are known as “lightening strikes”. These are often caused when central heating is installed and the floor was no longer damp. The wood dries and shrinks. It was very uneven with high points and low points.

Our first job was to sand it completely flat and then fill the open areas. Having coated the floor with it’s first sealer coat we then touched out the filler to make it blend seamlessly.


Finally we applied two further coats of hard wearing lacquer in order to provide a beautiful floor that should last for years.
