They seem to do lots of useful things Tim W, have you used them before or was it just an internet search?

Sorry, I'm a bit late back to this. I haven't used them but I'd been looking for someone to do my own floors and came across the advert.

Did you use them (or someone else)? Any good?

Hi - I had the company round - gentleman seemed to know what he was talking about. I will use him ( you can see his prices on his website) in about four weeks and I will let you know what I think after the work is completed if that helps

Hi there,
We used these people not so long ago, they are based in Balham but they did a fabulous job sanding and sealing ours:

Otherwise a local business that seems very good as we are dealing with them at the moment to lay some new wooden floors is Rowat and Gray on Crucifix lane.

Hope that helps!

I used that company based in Balham. I found them dishonest! They quoted me for using a special varnish " Junkers" if I remember correctly. Unfortunately, I had read the brochure about Junkers products. The drying time was much longer than what they did in my flat.I even called the Junkers sales rep who confirmed what I had read. When I confronted them, I asked to see the Junkers jars or bottles. Apparently, they transfered the product in different bottles in the morning. I did not pay the rest of the money (about 500 out of 1400). it has been 4 years and they never claimed it back. I also complained to consumer association about them.
If you are using them, stay at home and check everything. I was very disappointed as I used to live in Clapham South and had heard about this company prior to moving to SE1.

I used Heritage Floor sanding ( see top of thread) and said I would report back after job.

I would not use again
