At Restore Team we specialise in dust free wood floor restoration, sanding, scratch removal and resurfacing of all natural and engineered wood in Chester, Northwich and surrounding areas. We have the knowledge, experience, products and equipment to restore wooden floors so that they look and perform as well or better than when they were first laid.
Our technicians are Bona trained, and we use Bona equipment and products to ensure we achieve the best possible results for our clients. Here is a link to their website www.bona.com where you can see more information.
We will always conduct a free, no obligation site survey to assess your floor and understand your needs. We will provide you with a fixed price and detailed quotation explaining the processes we will use and the results you can expect to see.
Restore Team technicians have been sanding and restoring domestic and commercial wooden floors for satisfied clients throughout Cheshire, Wirral and North Wales for many years.
Depending on the type and condition of the wood, excellent results can be achieved with our restoration services as we apply the finish over what should be a fresh new layer of wood revealed by the sanding process. Whatever the challenges we will always achieve the best possible results. Certain floors, for example, an old Victorian pine floor, will always look aged and have a patina only time can add but this is often appropriate to retain the character of a period property.
The length of time required for the floor to dry depends on the type of product that is used. Typically, a lacquered finish is fine for careful use just two hours after each coat is applied but oiled finishes will take longer.
Usually the answer is a firm “Yes”. This is as long as the water or impact damage has not penetrated deeper that the sanding process will go. Even where this is the case, there may still be options to improve the appearance of the finished floor. The sanding process will be tailored to cut deep enough to remove as much impact or water damage as possible without affecting the structural integrity of the floor.
Yes, we are happy to carry out a free demonstration on your wooden floor as part of the site survey. The best way for us to do this is to bring one of the smaller dustless edging machines and test sand a small area. This will show the natural colour of the virgin wood. We can then discuss which finish will be appropriate for the results you want to achieve. The demonstration also really helps us to establish which sanding machines, products and processes will be required and to establish a fixed cost for the project.
Depending on the level of damage and thickness of old surface finishes, most household projects under 50 sqm take up to 2 days. Typically on the first day we can sand the area to a smooth finish and aim to apply the first coat of floor finish. This is left to dry, and we return the following morning to start applying subsequent coats as required. It is important to appreciate that smaller rooms, such as hallways, or rooms with immovable furniture may take longer, whereas larger, open spaces can be completed in a more timely fashion.
Each project is unique, and the cost varies depending upon individual factors such as the nature of the wood, existing coatings, damage, new coatings to be applied etc. This is why we always conduct a free, no obligation site survey and, where possible, test sand an area. We will then send you a detailed quotation with a fixed price for you to consider at your leisure. We do not give firm prices over the telephone or at the time of the survey and we will never put you under any pressure for an answer there and then.
All products used are within the manufacturer’s guidelines, and where applicable your flooring manufacture own brand products can be used.
We cannot give prices over the telephone or in response to an initial enquiry as there can be so many variables. If you can send photographs and room sizes, we can sometimes give an indication of approximate costs. This may help with budgeting for renovation project or help with your decision whether to restore or replace. Ultimately, we always need to carry out a full survey (and test area where possible) before a firm price is provided.
