We have recently been preparing and laying some reclaimed flooring at a seafront restaurant site in St Ives. Many commercial hospitality businesses desire the worn and neglected look of reclaimed flooring. However, this worn look hides the huge amount of work that goes into restoring an old floor.

The boards need to be lifted from their original position, painstakingly de-nailed and serviced, before being fitted and carefully sanded to achieve a client’s desired finish. It is always satisfying to fit a floor that already has a history; think of the number of generations that have walked, or are yet to walk, on this upcycled wood!

When our work is complete, a client ends up with a floor that is durable, eco-friendly and full of a uniquely rustic character.
