With summer arriving this project took us outside to some decking requiring a full sanding down and re-oiling. This was part of an area that was 120m2 of oak flooring spread across 4 rooms. Consisting of both herringbone and plank. We used Bona classic oak followed with a Bona traffic HD in matt. The feedback we received from the owners was fantastic and they could not have been happier with the outcome. A huge thanks to Sam & Christine for using Acacia Restoration.
This job for Acacia was a full restoration project at Woodhouse Grove school in Bradford. Wood replacement and repairs due to severe damage. Sanded to a super smooth finish and all gaps filled before having a final sand. Bona intense primer and 4 coats of Bona traffic HD was used to give the perfect finish. We would like to thank Diane and the team for using Acacia wood floor restoration.
