One of the images Kent conjures up is that of traditional black and white timber-framed Wealden buildings. Their survival is testimony to the enduring quality of wood - for both natural beauty and durability.
Despite the advances in construction techniques and development of other materials, timber remains popular – especially in wooden floors. They offer both hygiene and ease of maintenance. The only surface that improves with age, a wooden floor can add value to commercial and domestic properties.
Such an asset needs looking after. When your floors have become tired, scratched or badly damaged, a new look is but a few days away. Restoration through floor sanding will bring them back to life.

Useful facts about St Mary Cray:
St Mary Cray is a town on the River Cray in South East London, and is part of the London Borough of Bromley. It was historically a part of Kent, and still lies near the border of Greater London with the county. It was originally called South Cray, identifying it as the southernmost settlement on the river. St Mary Cray railway station is located in the town on the Chatham Main Line and is served by Southeastern and First Capital Connect. Stations the trains go to include London Victoria, London Blackfriars, Kentish Town, Bromley South, Swanley, Sevenoaks and Ashford International.
Like nearby St Paul's Cray, it has been somewhat overshadowed by the growth of Orpington, which now provides local communities with their main shopping and business facilities. Today it is mostly suburban housing, to a large amount of working class and ex traveler people. Originally the main feature of the town was its small parade of shops which was once longer than Orpington High Street. Today, it is the Nugents Retail Park on Cray Avenue.
St Mary Cray has the largest settled Roma and Irish traveler community in the UK. In the past, hop and soft fruit farms in the area employed large numbers of itinerant workers. Orpington and the surrounding area were rural, with many farms. Kent had many hop and fruit farms, so Orpington became, along with other areas such as Erith, a stopping area or atchin tan. One of the stopping areas was Corkes meadow or 'Corkes Pit', and Ruxley Pit another. Corkes Pit no longer exists, having been built on, but was near to the gas works in Sevenoaks Way. The other area, Ruxley Pit, was located at the top of Chalk Pit.
