Can anyone help me out here?
We've had someone sand a substantial wooden floor and I think they've done a really bad job. We're currently in dispute over this and if anyone has any thoughts it would help. Is it normal too:
- Not take kitchen plinths off and sand by machine up to about a half inch beside them and do the rest by hand?
- Roll the varnish on and get the varnish on the plinths and up the skirting boards etc?
- leave corners and under radiators unsanded at all while varnish has been applied everywhere else (our contractor says he does these bits at the end by hand)
- apply six coats of varnish to the floor, and say that it still requires another very good sand with at least 2 more coats of varnish
- leave footprints, wood splinters etc in the 6-coat job and say that these come out with the final sand?
I realise that the answer to some of these questions is obviously no! BUT at the same time I am reading different things on the issue of how and when to do corners/udner radiators etc in this sort of job.
Any thoughts would help!
