WoodMaster’s wood floor restoration process:
- Step 1 – Free site survey and full written estimate to decide on the best options for your floor. Here we’ll determine the full costs of the project and book suitable dates for us to complete our work. We pride ourselves on arriving punctually and completing the job in good time, with minimum disruption to you.
- Step 2 – Complete sanding of boards to strip old oils and bring back virgin boards. We have large industrial belt and planetary sanding machines which make your boards smooth and flat for the best finish. We have invested in a new 3 head machine designed for newer engineered boards where belt sanders cannot be used.
- Step 3 – We strip old sealers around all edges right to the skirting boards with our dust free edging machines, then treat floor with our 3 head finishing machine to polish out micro fine scratches from sanding process, leaving the floor smooth and primed for the application of sealer.
- Step 4 – Discuss and demonstrate samples of finishes / stain options in situ so you can see a real life example of how the finish will appear. Here we can apply a natural lacquer which gives a wonderful but tough and long lasting finish. We can use a stain to change colour and alter the look of the floor completely.
- Step 5 – Apply a base coat to fill up the wood and build up the first stage of protection.
- Step 6 – Once the base coat is dry, we carry out a gentle sanding of the floor to remove any areas that spike up from the base coat of sealer, preparing the floor for the finish.
- Step 7 – Application of 2 coats of top finish. This can be a 1 or 2 pack lacquer depending on the type of wood or we can also apply oils when a colour change or premium level for smoothness is requested by you.
- Step 8 – Once dry, the floor is now finished and ready for final hand over. Furniture can now be replaced. Floors are normally ready for walking on with socks and slippers after a few hours.
We can also provide full maintenance advice and after care products where requested.

Depending on the type of wood and condition, excellent results can be achieved with our restoration services as we are bringing back a fresh new layer of the wood. However, an old Victorian pine floor will always look aged and have patina but this is often seen as a positive with 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. We will advise you once work is complete.
Yes, no problem. The sanding process will be selected so that we cut deep enough to remove the scratches and damage that is present. Also if Some holes and grooves are too deep to sand we can advise on a filing method that will improve the appearance of these areas.
Yes, we are happy to carry out a free demo on your wooden floor. The best way for us to do this is to bring one of the smaller dustless edging machines and sand 1 board x 1m of linear length. This will show the natural colour the wood returns to and we can then discuss which product is best to return the wood to the colour or look of your preference. The demo is also great as it can allow us to work out how many sanding grits and processes are required, which also helps with firming up 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 1.5 days. On the first day we can sand the areas and get the base coat on. This is left to dry and then we return the following morning to start applying the 2 top coats. Again, smaller rooms with furniture take longer, whereas bigger open spaces which are completely clear can be completed in a timely fashion.
Every job is different but during the free survey we measure up, do a free demonstration clean to show the results we can achieve, and from this we send over a full proposal for you to browse at your own leisure. We do not give prices on the day or 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 are happy to give a ballpark figure from pictures and room sizes, as this can help customer budgeting on renovation projects if they are unsure whether to restore or replace, but ultimately we would need to carry out a full survey and demo before any work can take place.
