Floor Sanding Sydney


We Love Parquet we specialise in the restoration of flooring in heritage buildings and elegant mansions, in Sydney and environs. See more details of our heritage projects here.


Renowned for their flooring restorations, the experts at We Love Parquet are dedicated to high-quality workmanship, with dustless floor sanding. 

Our significant restorations, which include sanding parquet flooring, include:

  • Deltroit Homestead (circa. 1903): situated near Adelong, this is an outstanding example of Federation architecture. We Love Parquet completed the floor sanding and refinishing and installed parquetry to the entire living wing. We used European oak, keeping the style and integrity of the original historic homestead.
  • Boomerang (circa 1926): a heritage-listed historic home in Elizabeth Bay, Sydney. This is the oldest and finest example of Spanish Mission-style art deco architecture in Australia. Water damage to the intricate heritage-listed parquetry floor was successfully sanded and restored by We Love Parquet.
  • Commonwealth Bank at 5 Martin Place (circa 1914): This building experienced significant damage to the Heritage-listed Jarrah block parquetry floor during renovations. We Love Parquet repaired and restored the original parquetry, installing new parquetry floors over nine levels, with excellent results.



Natural Australian hardwoods have a beautiful grain and colour. Whatever wood you choose for your timber floor, it will be enhanced by professional floor sanding.

It’s essential to carry out floor sanding and polishing before applying a stain and gloss or matte finish, to emphasise the grain and beauty of the wood.

Preparation Is the Key to a Great Floor

We Love Parquet flooring specialist, Ivan Kirton, advises thorough preparation before sanding and staining hardwood floors.

“Timber boards need to be prepared by sanding before they can be coated with polish,” says Ivan. “The grade of sanding disc and the care taken when sanding wood floors is critical to the end result.” 

“This has to be done with a level of skill and expertise, otherwise it won’t last, or the finish will soon darken and obviate the beauty and true colour of the wood,” he explains. 

“You can expect a beautiful finish for your floor sanding and staining. This is something critical to the overall appearance of your home.”

Tight Project Deadline?

Professional Restoration Makes Wood Floors Look New

Professional restoration of a scuffed or worn wood surface can be achieved by the team at We Love Parquet, by sanding and refinishing hardwood floors.

The resilience of wood makes hardwood floors extremely durable, but they are susceptible to changes caused by moisture and sunlight.

  • Water damage can be harmful to hardwood floors, leaving stains on the wood surface. With professional sanding and restaining, discolourations and imperfections can be removed or re-stained, depending on the impairment.
  • Sunlight directly onto a hardwood floor can bleach the surface and cause buckling of the wood. Sanding and restaining hardwood floors will bring back their original colour and durability.

Typically, the first thing to wear out on a hardwood floor is the finish,” Ivan says. “We are happy to evaluate any damage and advise on how your floor can be restored.”

Expert Sanding and Restaining Hardwood Floors

The team at We Love Parquet specialises in the process to sand and restain hardwood floors, to restore them to as-new condition. 

Creating a beautiful and luxurious finish for your wood floor, to better see the inherent beauty of the wood grain, is dependent on the skill and ability of the operator.
