We have worked with various teams throughout the South of the UK. We have experience working in some of the most prestigious locations, with the widest range of different types of woods and patterns. Having tried every method and product out there, we can tailor our method of floor sanding and finish application to suit your floor. Every type of wood flooring has its own attributes to take into account when floor sanding, lacquering and polishing.

We can work during the night so business doesnโ€™t have to stop during floor renovation. We can even help move furniture and put up dust sheets (if you really feel its necessary).

Why choose Osborne Woodcare?


Floor sanding is a craft that demands care and attention.

It takes time and there aren’t many shortcuts. While there are gimmicks that other companies use to sell themselves, we pride ourselves on our quality. The finishing of every job is overseen by the owner and director Ben Osborne to ensure that we deliver on our values on every floor.

We are not a good fit for everyone.

Some people such as landlords are working on a budget and really only need a quick finish. Also, new homeowners are in a rush to get everything done and move in, but consider this: Your floor will be finished in maybe one, two or three days, but you will see the results every single day. You will see the imperfections every single day, for up to twelve years! If you aren’t happy with your finish and decide to have it refinished again, you have to move all your furniture out once again. Most people do not choose to do this, instead they choose to live with the sub par work.

Be critical with your choice.

If you think your floor is too old and damaged for sanding, then think again. We have restored wooden floors that are over 100 years old to look brand new (and one or two over 200 years old)! We carry out any repairs prior to sanding. Our sanding is 99% dust free and our customers are often amazed at the lack of dust.
