Our client contacted us to see if we could help source some old maple flooring that had been installed in their home sometime in the eighties. The client had recently installed a new kitchen and had removed an area between the hallway and kitchen. This had left them with an area about three by two meters of missing flooring. After successfully sourcing an almost perfect match, we made sure that the area in-between the hall and kitchen was perfectly level which required deep fill latex mixed with aggregate and another coat of latex over the top, so the reclaimed maple would marry up perfectly.
After allowing the newly screeded floor adequate time to dry, the maple flooring was installed. We then proceeded to sand and re-seal all the flooring.
