Seek out the expertise of a true restoration sanding and refinishing expert, a less experienced person and usually cheaper, would have a tendency to sand too much off the floor, decreasing the overall life and leaving little or no wood for the next sanding. So why if you want your wood floor sanded would you consider a painting & decorating company or general builder. Taken from that perspective, companies sanding a wood floor have a huge responsibility to protect their customer's investment and make that floor last as long as possible. After 40 years of wood restoration and french polishing, learning and improving we have the accumulated knowledge, experience and competence to guarantee the correct wood floor restoration service.
