Our floor sanding solutions in Horsham

  • Floor repairs

This can be carried out to fix dents, scratches, leaks, remove stains, or even level out your wood floor. If some parts of your floor are too damaged to be repaired with sanding, replacing the floorboards in the damaged area can be a nice way to get everything back in order again.

  • Gap filling

A properly insulated and draught-proofed floor will lower your power consumption and prevent air leaks through gaps in the floor and thus help your home retain warmth and cooling. It will also prevent insects from getting into your home and debris from gathering in gaps between floorboards.

  • Sanding

There is no better way to scrape away the old surface of your wood floor and reveal a fresher layer that responds well to staining and oiling. When done well, it will leave your home looking as good as new.

  • Staining

This can do a lot for your wood floor—make it waterproof, rot resistant, more beautiful and protected from harmful UV rays.

  • Finishes

This is not only a final decorative part of the floor sanding process, but is also a means of protecting your wood floor against wear, dirt, and moisture.

GJP Floor Sanding service in Horsham takes every aspect of the listed floor sanding process to the next level with our state-of-the-art equipment and expert contractors who are well-versed in the latest floor sanding techniques in the industry. When we touch your floor, the outcome is nothing short of pristine. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

Here are the various types of finishes that can be used on a wood floor:

  • Natural oil finish

This penetrates the wood and highlights the grain. It’s easy to maintain and is ideal if you are environment and health conscious.

  • Conversion varnish

This is very durable and accentuates the grain’s depth and colour. It makes for easy repairs. If you are looking for a finish that is very resistant to chemicals, then this should work for you.

  • Moisture-cure urethane

This is more popular among industrial flooring and is extremely wear-and-chemical-resistant, making it suitable for dance floors, restaurants floors, and the likes.

  • Waterborne

This isn’t just environment-friendly. It neither discolours nor yellows with time. And it’s good for both residential and commercial use.

  • Lacquer

This dries very fast. In fact, you can usually coat over it after fifteen minutes of the previous coating. And a mistake in a coating can easily be corrected with another coating.

  • Oil-modified polyurethane

This is easy to apply, gives your wood floor depth, and can be a good choice if you are looking for something low-cost.

  • Shellac

Produced from resin, this is odour-free. It’s adhesive and can be used along with waterborne coating to improve colour.

  • Wax

If you want a finish that you can easily maintain on your own, then wax finish is a good choice. It gives your wood floor an appearance that is close to that of oil finish—quaint and radiant.

Parquet floor sanding

Some floor sanding contractors are daunted by the process of sanding and finishing parquet flooring — probably because the floor comes with a lot of complications. It sometimes involves going against the grain, which requires much care so the cross-grain scratches don’t become evident on the finished floor. Scraping off too much wood could leave the grooves exposed.

GJP Floor Sanding understands that while sanding parquet floor, any wrong move could ruin it. That’s why we employ contractors who do not simply rely on equipment, contractors who will sail over your parquet floor with impressive delicacy and skill.
