Floor Re-Finishing

Here at Barfords we offer a variety of Floor Re-finishing services. Our High Quality equipment allows us to give floors a new premium finish.

It’s always striking to see the difference that quality craftsmanship can make. The possibilities are endless, all without the cost and hassle of replacing.

French Polishing

Historically, the method of French polishing was first documented in the 18th century as the best possible finish for fine furniture and stringed instruments. This process has over the years evolved into a term that is now commonly used to relate to the highest quality wood finishing.

At Barfords we can alter the look of any wooden item, if damaged we can remove ‘white ring’ cup marks, gouges and dents. Then French polish to look new or even give an alternative finish.

We have saved many clients a small fortune by restoring damage or incorrect finishing that often occurs prior to handover. All methods and materials are traditionally based. We even crush and charcoal walnut shells to obtain a rich nutty stain that colours the wood beautifully and naturally, thus keeping the traditional craftsmanship alive.

Displayed is a Wooden door that was applied a french-polish. This gave the door a finish that made it look brand-new. The client was extremely pleased with the outcome of the polish.

If you would like us to get involved in an ongoing project or a project that you have in mind, please feel free to contact us.

Ashley Bailey
Alan & co restored our 1970s teak parquet lounge floor expertly, unphased by unpleasant surprises after the carpet was lifted to reveal paint splats, screeding & a concrete section which must've been the old fireplace, eventually replacing this section with mahogany, as the closest match, as teak is no longer available. Well pleased with results!
Tony Bowden
Alan and Mark restored our near 70 year old lounge and hallway parquet flooring, which had been covered by carpets for many years. The work was completed on time, and it now looks like a new floor. Both very polite, friendly and professional, they certainly know their trade.
Charlotte Gladwell
Barford Contractors LTD laid oak parquet in our hallway and two front rooms. Throughout the process the communication was great and they were very receptive to our feedback and went the extra mile to make the flooring how we wanted it. Alan, Mark and Gareth were here just over a week and they were really friendly and polite. The floors look incredible and we would highly reccomend them as they delivered exactly what we wanted and the service was spot on.
Rachel Fryett
Barford Contractors were excellent. The floor was transformed from an old orange colour, to looking fresh and brand new. Alan's communication was fantastic from the start. I would definitely recommend Barford Contractors to anyone wanting their floor transformed.

Alan and his son Mark transformed our wooden floors. They did a thorough, dust free job, proving to be very obliging by helping to move furniture for us. We thoroughly recommend them. Mr and Mrs Barrett

Alan provided a detailed quote for both wooden floors in our village hall to sand and re-seal and apply lines for a badminton court. The work was carried out meticulously and he kept me fully informed of progress and was more than happy to answer my questions. Very pleased to recommend his company.
