Wood & Parquet

Wood floors can be split into two kinds, both of which can be termed solid wood.
One piece of wood, we would normally only fit this where it can be nailed to joists or an existing wood floor.

Engineered, this consists of multiple layers of wood, each layer has the grain at right angles to the one above and below. This makes the floor stable and can then be floated, or glued down, over most other types of floor including solid. However when fitting over concrete floors the floor must be dry and have a damp proof membrane fitted.

Surface finishes can again be broken into two types.

Lacquer (some times called seal) this is a clear finish, similar to varnish, that is absorbed into the top of the floor and gives a very hard wearing surface. It generally does not need a lot of maintenance, just an occasional wipe with a refresher, and an application of a emulsion polish will make it last for many years. However at some point in the future it will need to be sanded of and the lacquer reapplied. The time for this operation obviously varies on the type of lacquer used and the wear on the floor. Areas like bedrooms may never need this doing, hallways may need it after 10 years.

Wooden flooring

Joe Shakespeare started this company in 1955 laying blocks and mosaic tiles, we still carry on this tradition.
We are one of the few companies in Stoke on Trent and staffordshire that still do this process the ' the old fashioned way'. 
We still hand lay and cut the blocks with two block border and herringbone design in the field. Sanding with an up to date sanding machine, fitted with a vacuum cleaner, and then applying either lacquere or hard wax oil.
