Varnishing & Staining
Add several coats of varnish to wood and it will enhance the natural colour of the timber, delivering a lovely, rich sheen. Varnish protects wood, providing a durable surface that helps to prevent damage and keeps it in good condition.
We Vacuum the area to remove dust and dirt, before starting work. A slightly damp mop also works well for removing sanding dust from the surface of the floor.
We Remove any existing varnish or finish with a suitable paint and varnish remover / stripper. We Sand the wood to remove any surface imperfections, then use a damp cloth to remove any debris and let the wood dry.
We first coat the area with a thinned coat of varnish. Leave it to dry for 24 hours, then sand it with fine sandpaper and wipe down with a damp cloth or vacuum to remove the dust.
We Apply your first coat of pure varnish, working with the grain, then let it dry completely.
We Create a key by gently sanding the surface with very fine sandpaper.
We Apply as many more coats as it needs, generally 2 to 3 coats would be the norm but additional coats can be applied for greater depth of finish, gently sanding in between each coat giving a super smooth finish.
