Here you see a 1960's designer house that benefitted an Iroko strip floor throughout, typical of the era due to relations with foriegn parts at that time. As usual, hacked about somewhat by previous owners, with walls moved and extensions added over the years, not to mention the dreaded access damage caused by GPO engineers, plumbers and electricians, further hindered by them knowing carpet would be covering up their poor craftsmanship, so no need to finish off and put back properly.
As you can see, this floor was a little more than just a few repairs. The Iroko strip was of a tongue and groove (T+G) construction, always a problem with removing as you need to start from an edge, or saw cut down the sides and destroy some parts. We had to replace a large area which had been laid with a mis-matched material during an extension project, rebuild steps and totally refurbish the remainder including holes cut here and there. We manufactured, supplied and laid 20sqms of new Iroko, machined to match the existing. The complete floor was then sanded, buffed and finished with Mylands Hard Wax Oil with a hint of black to assist the colour blend.
