The vibrant cultural heart of London – the Barbican symbolises the way our great city has renewed itself over the centuries. Along with the predominance of modern building in glass and concrete, traditional materials continue to be popular. Wooden floors are the proof that timber is not only beautiful, easy to maintain and hard wearing - it is the basis of an asset that adds value to a property.
And yet - whether the floor consists of parquet blocks or hardwood or engineered boards - everyday wear and neglect can take their toll.
So when your floors are in need of refreshment - it’s time to take action.
The solution? Wood floor repair and restoration – from a professional floor sanding company in Barbican EC2.

Did you know about Barbican?
The present Barbican district is generally regarded as being roughly equivalent to the location and size of the medieval walled town of Sutton. A barbican is a fortified gate, and here the name probably derives from the 'Castle Barbican' which was an entrance to the late medieval fortress that guarded access to the Cattewater, prior to the building of the Royal Citadel. For centuries the Barbican was home to Plymouth's fish market (now relocated to the other side of the harbour) and is still home to many fishermen.
Places of interest in the Barbican include the National Marine Aquarium (technically in Coxside) which is one of the larger aquariums in Britain and has one of the deepest tanks in Europe; the Elizabethan House, an old house built in the early 16th century, now used as a museum; the Mayflower Steps near where the Pilgrims finally set off in the Mayflower for the New World in 1620, which is described in the nearby visitors' centre; and the studio gallery of the late painter and eccentric Robert Lenkiewicz, who lived and worked on the Barbican for many years deriving much of his inspiration and income from the local community.
A grey and unattractive concrete fortress from the exterior, the Barbican houses over 2, 000 flats of varying styles, builts in the ‘70s. This ‘city within city’, originally intended as council flats (although most are now privately owned), consists of residential blocks linked by confusing raised walkways. Flats range from studios to 5-bedroom luxury penthouses. Next door is the renowned arts centre, a music school and an independent secondary school. Adjacent to the arts centre is the Grade II listed Golden Lane Estat, council-built in the 60s, with about half of its one-, three-bedroom flats now privately owned.
