If you are looking to sand or renovate any type of wooden flooring or carry out the necessary repairs to restore your floor back to its natural beauty, we will provide the professional advice and craftsmanship you are looking for.

Peel back your carpet and you are likely to see a dirty wooden floor covered with paint stains and cuts across the boards where tradesmen or builders have damaged them in the past. Despite first impressions often being unappealing, everything can be sanded and repaired whatever the condition, bringing your floor back to its former glory. Even severely damaged boards can be replaced with reclaimed boards to keep the floor consistent and authentic.

Use the latest cutting-edge, advanced equipment for sanding and finishing wooden floors, we deliver results that are virtually dust free. We have considerable experience in wood finishing and have spent many years sourcing the best available materials and finishing products on the market to provide exceptional results.


We can also offer services to protect and enhance the appearance of your floor, using protective lacquers that are unrivalled on the market today. As a qualified French Polisher, Anthony can use traditional or modern techniques to polish your floor to any desired colour of your choice. But it doesn't finish there; be it floors, doors, panelling, bar tops, staircases, antique restoration, banisters, hall floors, office floors or furniture old and new, we offer competitive prices, exacting standards and a highly personal, bespoke experience from start to completion.

From stripping furniture and repolishing in a highly durable heat, water and alcohol resistant finish all the way through to removing cup rings, touching in wood finish scratches or replacing loose or missing veneers, any commercial, domestic or insurance work is undertaken.

External weather resistant finishes can also be applied to doors and shop fronts whilst spraying techniques for joinery, doors, panelling, furniture can be done at our custom workshop.

In short, we offer the whole range of services; from pigmented lacquers, colour matching and staining to careful cleaning, repolishing and restoration of all manner of wood products to their original condition.

If you are lucky enough to find a parquet or oak floor underneath your carpets then please call for advice on what you can do. Specialised jobs need to be done correctly and carefully as the results can affect not only the appearance of the floor but also the value of your property.

Customer Testimonials

We requested Anthony Howes to provide us with a quote for a new wooden floor in our dining room and lounge. Anthony was punctual and polite. It was obvious to see that he has a great knowledge of many different aspects of flooring and was able to show us photos of work he had done for reference.
The quote was provided to us in a few days and we were more than happy with the price quoted.
The job was undertaken in an efficient and professional manor. We are extremely happy with his work and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
