Warm and Neat Service
Restoration Service for Hardwood, Parquet and Engineered Floors
Restoring all wooden flooring types since 1988. Peter Weller specialises in hard wood, parquet, engineered floors and pine. Being well known for his expertise in staining, he comes highly recommended with 30+ years experience working closely with clients and interior designers to achieve their own uniquely visualized finish. He is based in Crystal Palace, South East London.
Throughout his career Peter has restored thousands of pine and hardwood floors. He aims to give you not only a long lasting beautiful floor but a level of service geared to your households needs whilst work is in progress, with flexible hours and schedule that can fit in with the busiest households. Whenever possible work in busy areas such as kitchens and hallways, is timed to cause the least disruption especially where there are young children.
Floor sanding is carried out using modern efficient dust collecting machines capable of producing a fine finish which is essential if the floor is to be stained.
Gap filling is done with the MDF strip method in preference to wood strips, it looks fantastic and works beautifully with stain. It is a long lasting solution to draughts. Fillers have the tendency to shrink and fall out as the boards shrink and expand with temperature changes in the home. Peter only uses filler for the very narrowest gaps and boards that have cracked and need some restoration.
Staining changes the colour of the floor and can have a dramatic effect on the character of the space, so it is vital to get it right. Peter works closely with his clients giving advice and discussing the options and experimenting with colour’s before the final decision is made. Sample colour’s will be applied to a test patch for the client to see how the colour’s are effected by the original board colour before the final choice is made. In the images above, the client wanted the final finish to resemble driftwood.
The final protective finish
The final protective finish is achieved using long lasting top quality professional floor lacquers with differing levels of sheen, matt, satin or gloss to give depth to the colour of the floor with the finishing sheen of your choice. Peter uses a minimum of 3 coates to give the very best possible most hardwearing finish. In the image below a busy family kitchen was given an extra coat of matt varnish, 4 in all. The client wanted a pale sandy beach effect, which was achieved with a diluted white stain on new boards.
We do not try to beat competitors with price. Peter is more concerned with quality work and that takes time. He uses the most expensive materials and gives a very personal service. He is a true craftsman. His skills expanding far beyond floor restoration which means when faced with a complicated floor restoration he knows exactly how to deal with it, and has an amazing understanding of staining….what works on your particular floor and what doesn’t. One added bonus though…. we do not charge VAT and have no hidden prices, which can make a big difference to your final bill.

Our Before & After Images
Sand off Those Difficult to Remove Black Borders Using Both the Main Sander and the Edging Machine.
The idea is to flick the paint off firstly with the main sanding machine, then finish with the edger machine still using a flicking motion. Prolonged contact with the machine on the paint will create heat and spread the black border paint rather than remove it. The sanding download or fully interactive DVD demonstrates this technique, as you are required to use the machines in a slightly different way . When most people try to sand these black borders (bitumen) they end up clogging the sanding sheets very quickly which of course is very costly. Many so called professionals have still not found a way to get this stuff off without extra cost to the customer. Peter has used this method for many years now and it works beautifully
