Wooden Floor Repairs & Gap Filling – London
Removal / Replacement of Damaged Boards
We’ll assess the floorboards for damage and unevenness. Loose boards will be realigned, removing any old tacks and nails. Protruding nails are hammered flat.
For those boards damaged beyond repair, we will replace them – wherever possible – with reclaimed timber of the same quality and age.
The even look of a gap-filled floor is pleasing to the eye but not always necessary. Filling gaps does prevent
both draughts and the build up of dust between the gaps. It also tightens the floor and helps prevent timber movement.
Traditional methods of gap filling include:
*resin mix – mostly used on parquet and mosaic floors with lots of fine gaps. Dust from the floor is mixed with a resin and applied to the gaps with a filling knife.
Solid fillets of reclaimed pine and other timbers are glued, forced into the gaps, and chiselled back before sanding flat.
