Flooring: Chepstow Rustic Oak Lacquered
With 4 venues in and around Poole, The Dancing Moose is passionate about creating feel-good social spaces. Their restaurant-bars are locally unique but clear in their mission to provide upbeat tunes, great American fusion cuisine and exciting drinks in a vibrant environment.
In December 2018, the Penn Hill venue suffered a leak which caused extensive water damage to the existing floor finish and subfloor. Local flooring installers Sean Morton Pro Flooring were commissioned to carry out a full floor refurbishment which involved extensive preparation work and fitting a new wood floor over the course of 4 days.
The existing flooring was removed and commercial de-humidifiers brought in to help dry out the space. Floor preparation machines were used to remove excess glue residue and old latex before the subfloor was re-prepared with smoothing underlayment and a damp-proof membrane, ready for the wood floor fit.
Having worked with Woodpecker for a number of years, Fitter Sean recommended an engineered wood floor from the Chepstow range.
“Dealing with Woodpecker is easy and reliable. The product we needed was in stock so we didn’t have to worry about long lead times and delivery was quick too. We have no doubt that the flooring is great quality and very durable, plus it has a 25 year warranty, so we’re confident fitting it for our customers. It was a pleasure to fit one of Woodpecker’s most amazing floors in the Dancing Moose – quality flooring in a quality establishment!” – Sean, Fitter at Sean Morton Pro Flooring
Chepstow Rustic Oak suits the look and feel of The Dancing Moose, complementing the exposed brickwork and timber panelling. Finished with multiple coats of hardwearing lacquer, the floor is a reliable base in this busy environment, and has a 6mm wear layer of solid oak that can be sanded and refinished many times for long-lasting performance.
The flooring is used throughout the whole space, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
“Woodpecker and Sean Morton Pro Flooring were both brilliant and delivered on their promises. We’re very happy with the whole experience.” – Steve Madden, Owner at The Dancing Moose
