Why Choose Us for Your Needs?
Up to the Middle Ages, Essex CM5 had no shortage of woods, with today’s remnants confined to Hatfield and Epping Forests. This spurred creativity in the use of timber still apparent hundreds of years later. Greensted Church, with its nave walls of split oak, is the world’s oldest surviving wooden building.
Down the road, Blackmore Church sports one of the finest timber belfries in the country – a pagoda-type structure in fine condition after 600 years. Its internal support with its massive beams demonstrates the considerable skills of medieval craftsmen.
At Cressing, the church also has a timber tower which is rivalled by the site of the Temple of the Knights Templar. The subsequent Tudor Manor is evidenced by two vast barns – one for wheat and one for barley, both exceeding 100 feet in length.
From the practical to the ostentatious. Audley End is one of the most splendid Jacobean houses in England. If no longer ‘too good for a monarch’, as claimed for James 1, today’s humble common visitors may enjoy its many fine features, among which the Great Hall stands out with tiebeams and carved hammerbeam brackets. The oak screen stands out – its three bays divided by figures on pedestals. The staircase here and in the two bays of the house are also original with striking decoration.

Should You Have the Gaps Between Your Floorboards Filled In?Are you currently deciding whether to gaps in your wooden floor filled? Here at Floor Sanding Company, we understand that gaps between wooden floorboards can be highly undesirable, which is why we offer an impeccable gap filling service. However, you may be unsure about whether you really want to have these gaps filled in. There are several key factors that you should take into consideration, and thinking about them will help you to reach the decision that’s best for you.
1. Aesthetic appeal
The gaps between floorboards can lend an air of authenticity to older wooden floors, or even imbue them with a simple, rustic charm. On the other hand, they can undermine more sophisticated, modern styles. Floorboard gaps can make relatively contemporary rooms appear untidy and slightly dilapidated.
Think about your aesthetic preferences. Do you want to create a more rustic, traditional ook in your home, or would you rather have a more refined and up-to-date household? If you decide on a more rustic style, you can choose to leave your floorboard gaps in place. However, if you want to achieve a more modern look, we strongly suggest filling them in.
2. Financial impact
Here at Floor Sanding Experts, we pride ourselves on our reasonable prices. However, you should be aware that you will need to invest some money if you want competent, professional gap filling. Nonetheless, you should also note that floor gaps can let in draughts and, therefore, drive up your heating costs in the long-run. Consider how much the gaps in your floorboards are costing you. This will help you decide if it’s worth investing in having them filled.
Filling the gaps between your floorboards can help preserve them. It’sharder for dust, grime, liquids and corrosive materials to get between floorboards if the gaps that separate them have been filled. Filling the gaps also reduces the likelihood of accidentally damaging the edges of floorboards. If you want to replace your floor eventually, this may not matter. However, if you want to preserve your wooden floor for decades to come, filling the gaps between floorboards is definitely advisable.
If you do decide to have the gaps between your floorboards filled in, we’d be delighted to help. We also carry out other types of wood floor repair and maintenace, so contact us today for more information.
