After removing the carpet and chipboard flooring in this 19th century cottage we discovered most of the softwood joist ends had decayed. There was a large amount of builder’s waste under the floor which we removed to improve ventilation. A new damp proof course was laid on top of the dwarf walls prior to replacing the majority of the joists. A solid oak tongue and grooved floor was then laid on to the new floor frame. All boards were secretly nailed through the tongue. The fitting was completed with oak skirting boards and architraves, all finished with 3 coats of a durable hard wax oil.
We also lay floors and fit interior wall cladding for commercial and domestic properties in Black walnut, Cherry, Ash, Douglas fir, European redwood, Pitch pine and reclaimed pine.
