When its not quite right

Did you know our solid wood floors are a bit like people? Your puzzled right! Well let me explain... like any two people who are of course people but different in many ways such as features and presentation etc, so too are peices of wood. At Nufloors we pride ourselves in putting up photos of our jobs during and at completion.  Lets face it many of us are stimulated by the pretty pictures online and as a visual person I know a beautiful picture of a sanded and polyurethane native or oak floor completed by our floorsanding Auckland team is inspiring.  For many customers this is a selling point as they say "I want my floor to look like that!  This last week we had a situation just like this... imagine our surprise when we were told it "is not quite right"...

Parquet anyone?


In the late 1600's parquet flooring was first invented in Versailles, France as an alternative to the marble flooring owned by the wealthy.  Small peices of hand cut coloured wood the shapes of squares, diamond and triangles were glued, scraped, sanded and then polished to acheive the desired look.  If laid incorrectly the flooring would lift easily therfore only highly skilled professionals would provide this service and as such only the wealthy would have such extensive flooring installed in their homes.  Hmm not much as changed today.
