The former home of the Bishop of London – now moved to St Pauls - Fulham Palace provides a spirited survey of the variety of English architecture. From the Tudor courtyard and Hall, with its magnificent timber roof of 1495, the Georgian additions lead the visitor on to the Victorian age, exemplified by the splendid chapel.
If the Palace demonstrates the artistic qualities of brick and timber, the buildings in the rest of the area - now among the most desirable and expensive in London – provide examples of the enduring traditions of British construction. Timber, in particular, remains popular in the wooden floors of both domestic and commercial buildings.
Valuable in a home, office, gym, bar, shop, gallery or restaurant – whether parquet blocks or hardwood boards - wooden floors are both durable and easy to keep clean. With regular maintenance, their natural beauty improves with age.
Such maintenance is essential, as time and feet create a dull appearance, while scratches and marks may lead to more serious damage. If your floors could benefit from a facelift, call on a Fulham floor sanding company.
After damaged timber is repaired or replaced, we sand to remove the old layers of paint and sealant. The bare surface is then ready for your choice of protective finish: lacquer or the natural look of wax or oil.
The work is virtually dust free with efficient collection by our latest sanding machines. And as we can work around your schedule - during evenings or at weekends – any closure will result in minimal disruption and loss of business.
We specialise in period floors, as in parquet floor restoration. You will get an authentic finish, as we will find the blocks to match your existing floor from our reclaimed timber suppliers.

Useful facts about Fulham:
Fulham is an area of southwest London in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, SW6 (the successor to the Metropolitan Borough of Fulham) located 3.7 miles (6.0 km) south west of Charing Cross. It lies on the north bank of the Thames, between Putney and Chelsea. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London. Fulham was formerly the seat of the diocese of "Fulham and Gibraltar", and Fulham Palace served as the former official home of the Bishop of London (now a museum), the grounds of which are now divided between public allotments and an elegant botanical garden.
Having been through many transformations in its history, today it is a green London area within very close reach of many famously extravagant places such as Chelsea and Kensington and this is reflected in the high local house prices. It was included within Savills' 2007 list of "prime" London areas. Premier League football club, Fulham, is situated in Fulham, and Chelsea, another Premier League club is situated on the border between Fulham and neighbouring Chelsea. The former Lillie Bridge Grounds (which hosted the second FA Cup Final and the first ever amateur boxing matches) was also in Fulham.
During recent years there has been a great revival of interest in Fulham's earliest history, due almost entirely to the efforts of the Fulham Archaeological Rescue Group. This has carried out a number of interesting digs, particularly in the vicinity of Fulham Palace, which show that approximately 5,000 years ago Neolithic people were living by the riverside and in other parts of the area. Excavations have also revealed Roman settlements during the third and forth centuries AD.
