INTERIOR ARCHITECTURAL POLISHING

Reclaimed panelling and floor boarding Before & After photographsIn recent years Rod has diversified on occasions to polish on site various interior Architectural features that are fixtures in houses of all sizes, adapting skills built up over many years from working with traditional tried and tested finishes.

Rod links up with a colleague which he has known since his days at West Dean to tackle larger projects. These commissions have taken him all over the country plying his trade in country Houses and corporate institutions.

The majority of commissions taken on are revival or reinstating of traditional wax finishes which have been neglected over time, or removed and replaced by the dreaded polyurethane. Repairs to interior woodwork can be carried out prior to finishing in a sympathetic manor and with compatible materials the results can be quite stunning.

Newly completed woodwork that needs to be polished in a traditional way has also been taken on, with the same attention to detail as any original feature would receive.

Traditional wax or oil finishes are generally durable, environmental friendly and sustainable, they are also usually easy to repair if damaged.
