We follow guidelines of the South African Wood and Laminate Floor Association. We often get called in to complete/fix work started by other contractors. Rob is known for 25 years' experience and being fussy with great attention to detail. We are the suggested contractor on a number of suburbs Facebook pages.
We will advise you if your wooden floor is able to take a sanding and if so propose a number of coats of sealer for your particular circumstances. If the floors still look fairly respectable we'd propose top up coats rather than a full sanding. We will further advise you if the ventilation in the cavity under your suspended wooden floor needs to be improved. We would quote on the supplying and fitting of air vents cut into the floors, if deemed necessary. We are the only contractor fitting the vents.
We will lay bocks supplied either by ourselves or yourselves, using either adhesive in the case of the small thin mosaic blocks or new parquet, or old traditional rock bitumen in the case of the thicker recycled parquet. We always prime properly screeds before laying blocks, or properly damp proof with plastic sheeting concrete surfaces before laying tongue and groove floors. A SAWLFA approved underlay allows us to float tongue and groove flooring directly to concrete giving a softer and warmer floor free from damp issues.
Any number of patterns can be chosen with the parquet from the traditional Basket Weave to more intricate patterns like the two Herring Bone patterns, or one you might specify.
We will repair or extend an existing Tongue and Groove/suspended floor using material supplied by ourselves or yourselves.
We will supply and lay a new floor following SAWLFA guidelines and happily give advice on preparation you/your builder would need to provide the correct base from which to start. Current tongue and groove options are Zimbabwean Teak or imported Baltic Pine.
We will sand and seal your existing floors or suggest top up coats offering any number of coats of sealer as appropriate for a longer lasting, and easier to clean finish. The Loba (SAWLFA approved) products give a lighter finish avoiding yellow/orange/red colours that older sealers were known for.
Sealer options are all eco-friendly and are very raw/natural looking, ordinary mat, or semi-gloss out of the highest traffic rated domestic range OptiFinish from German manufacturer Loba. We also offer an oiled surface with Loba products for a different but higher maintenance floor finish.
