Wirksworth Junior School

Wirksworth Junior school after painting and new wood block flooring

This is another joint project for AJ floorcraft and AJ Painting and Decorating.

Our client asked us to replace the old wood block flooring which was becoming worn in places.

The old Granwood floor had already been removed.

The floor was prepped with F Ball Stopgap SRS surface primer to stabilise it.

Then we applied F Ball Stopgap 1200 Pro screed followed by F Ball F77 damp proof membrane.

Next we applied F Ball P141 primer and finished the subfloor with another layer of F Ball Stopgap 1200 pro.

This might seem like a lot of layers to a subfloor, but the correct preparation for a project like this is paramount to the finished result.

Oak Parquet block flooring was installed using F Ball B95 adhesive.

Once the floor was complete, we sanded the whole room using our trusty Bona UX sanding machine.

The flooring was primed with a coat of Bona Mix and Fill classic primer and finished with a coat of Bona HD Laquer for a hardwearing finish.

These flooring works took around 4 weeks to complete in total and the finish was so good our client decided they needed the walls painting too to complete the transformation!

That was the perfect job for AJ Painting and Decorating! 

To protect the beautiful new flooring, we covered it with specialist floor protection. 

A substantial amount of preparation work was necessary initially, owing to the presence of cracks and peeling paint in the school hall located within the splendid Grade 2 listed building.

We painted the walls and ceiling in White Acrylic Eggshell, which is an excellent choice for durability and ease of cleaning – a must for a busy school hall.

The blue band, skirtings and doors were painted in a blue oil based gloss to tie in with the school colours.
