How Best to Restore Granwood Flooring Hull

By On August 22, 2016 1 Comment

Granwood floors were produced in order to find a durable and attractive solution for commercial premises.

It is well-recognised that wood floors are an extremely popular floor choice. They are well-suited to a range of commercial properties, they are timeless in their appearance and they are relatively easy to clean.

Restoring wood floors LeedsSome of the issues that are faced with wooden products is the fact that they experience expansion and contraction. This coupled with general usage and wear means that it is inevitable that scuffs, worn areas and damage will occur.

It was identified that there was a niche in the market that would better-suit commercial, high-use settings. Therefore Granwood was formulated to combat the exact issues that troubles a wooden floor.

Granwood blocks are produced by the combination of sawdust, cement and fillers. These are intensely compressed and saturated with linseed oil. This production method combated expansion and contraction issues and also offered resistance against rot and fire damage.

We have completed a large range of Granwood restoration jobs and are proud to showcase the work that we have completed. Our dust free floor sander filters the dust away which allows us to monitor our work, it keeps the air quality safe and allows for faster clean-up.

Restoration of this flooring type demands an understanding of its make-up, limitations to the sanding process and knowledge of the best finishes to offer a long-lasting surface. None of these elements can be underestimated as the likely outcome is a less than satisfactory finish.
