  1. Repair / Preparation This entails the survey of existing wood underneath carpets. The experienced team will soon decide if the floorboards available are going to offer a stunning result for all the right reasons. They will instead provide reclaimed pine to match existing wood.
  2. Gap Filling This ensures a uniform, perfect finish and insulates your home from draughts that may arise from gaps in your floorboards.
  3. Sanding! Using the very best Hummel and Bonner sanding machines, GJP work their magic, sanding the floor to smooth perfection while taking away the inevitable dust.
  4. Staining/Refinishing The last stage involves a personal touch, whether a bold colour or a natural wood oil or varnish, this can add depth and personality to any room, Be bold or keep it tradition, the choice is yours.
