Local business Jacobs Joinery & Cabinets approached us in 2015 to supply & install Jarrah Select Grade 260x65x19mm Block Parquetry in a Herringbone Design for the Zodiac Lounge Dance floor at the Commercial Club Albury to add on to the existing flooring.
Old blocks on the outer edge were removed & new blocks inserted to tie in the new with existing.
Surrounding carpet was tucked into a brass perimeter trim framing the Jarrah single block border.
Work took place during a succession of nights so as not to disrupt the Clubs opening hours.
We sanded the coating off the existing parquetry back to raw timber, then applied 1 coat of solvent-based polyurethane to enhance the natural timber colour, then 2 coats of Loba Duo Coat Satin water-based polyurethane.
The Satin finish shows off the beautiful Jarrah parquetry, yet will hide the wear & tear happening on the floor over time.
When the coating has got to the stage where the damage is noticeable, but before the coating has worn through to bare timber, which is very important, a recoat consisting of a prep wash & 2 coats of Loba 2K Duo Coat water-based polyurethane will be applied without having to sand any of the timber off.
There are many Australian & International species of parquetry available in many sizes & grades to suit your application, of course with any finish you desire.
