PREFABS AND POETS

Part of Kent until 1889, the relentless urbanisation of south London encompassed the area which now has a very 1960s to 70s feel. At least the Broadway Theatre of 1932 harks back to the confident glamour of the Art Deco style.

The war created the need for rapid, cheap housing and Catford was once home to the largest prefabricated housing estate in London. Very little now remains but the small but oddly charming St Marks is a rare surviving example of a prefab church.

Notable residents include Ernest Dowson, a famous decadent poet, one of whose works contains three well known quotations – proving an inspiration to Margaret Mitchell and Cole Porter. Ethel le Neve was the mistress of Dr Crippen who fled with him to the States disguised as a boy. She lived out her life in anonymity in Catford, managing to keep her infamous past a secret from her own children.

Amir and Mostafa did an incredible job with our travertine tiles in our big room. For the first time since forever, you can actually see the lights above reflecting in the tiles on the floor. They were clean, no dust anywhere, on time every day, and a pleasure to work with.

Jimmy and his team are the best of the best. Jimmy is a great communicator- very friendly, great work ethic, and I learned a lot from him. We had the floors refinished and stained and Jimmy explained to us there may be others who can finish a job quickly.

Guide to sanding laminate flooring

Many homeowners are surprised to find that they can sand their laminate flooring. You may need to consider this option if there are superficial scratches, or if the top coat has become dull. This process involves buffering the top layer, which is the veneer, rather than sanding the actual wood, as you only want to remove the polyurethane varnish. However, the process that is used is incredibly similar to that of sanding a solid wooden floor. Below we offer a quick guide on how to lightly sand your laminate floor.

The right equipment

Sanding a wooden floor when it consists of laminate boards takes some skill and the correct kit. You don’t want to sand too deeply, as this can damage the delicate top layer, but at the same time you need to remove all imperfections and create a workable, smooth surface. This really needs an industrial floor sanding machine, ideally operated by a professional sanding expert.

Sanding the wooden floor

When sanding a floor made of laminate boards you need to move the sander in the direction of the boards. This is to preserve the integrity of the wood and to not weaken it. Move over the entire floor, checking on the progress as you go. Ensure that you remove all of the polyurethane varnish. You may need to go over the floor several times, sweeping the floor free of dust in between sanding.

Clean the area

Once you are happy with the floor, then you need to thoroughly sweep to remove all traces of dust and dirt. You need to have a completely clean floor in preparation for applying the new coat of polyurethane. Using a dust free floor sanding machine makes light work of this.

Apply the top coat

Polyurethane is the best choice of a protective coat for a laminate floor. It dries hard, clear, and will not discolour with age. It will also last for many years and should protect the floor from mild scrapes and dents. There are many floor sanding companies that specialise in the sanding of laminate flooring and have the skills and equipment to do the job correctly and at a price to suit most budgets.
