Wood Floor Restoration At Old Dean Youth Club Camberley

Here is a job we completed for Kier in Camberley, Old Dean Youth Club. When we arrived we noticed that the floor was quite uneven and had some gouges in it from the previous people who had attempted sanding the floor. We could see we had our work cut out to level the boards out and the gouges that were left.

When we started floor sanding we noticed how nice the wood was that had been covered up by the layers of bourne seal built up over the years. We were able to sand the floor in 1 day and apply the first coat before going home. We used Junckers Prelak as the primer on this job.

The next day we came back and buffed/de nibbed the floor using our new Bona Flexisand Power Drive to make sure we had removed any grain raise and to key the wood surface ready for the court markings. We painted on 1 basketball key and 1 short badminton court as that was all that would fit in this hall.

We then left the paint to dry over night and returned to buff the wood flooring again to make sure the court markings were keyed ready for sealing. We used Junckers HP Sport for the last 2 coats we applied to the floor.

As you can see from the pictures above the floor now looks lovely and flat, ready to start playing sports on again, but this time with the  court markings in place instead of masking tape. This floor does not only look nicer, but in fact it will actually last longer and perform better with the right maintenance and care in place. Resealing this small sports hall floor will benefit it and make the time in between floor sanding longer. By resealing the floor you are preventing the seal from wearing away and leaving the wood bare from wood lacquer.
