Enhance the natural qualities of your timer

Our team have the expertise and knowledge to complete any stained or varnished finish. From brand new timber  to the restoration of the oldest timbers. No job is too big or too small for our team of skilled professionals.

We thoroughly sand the timber with machine sanders. Then we will start by filling out any nail holes and imperfections. Only then will we apply the wood stain.

Preparation is equally important for older timber surfaces that need to be re-stained; we will sand down and prepare the surface as necessary prior to staining, in order to ensure the smoothest possible finish.
