“SINCE WE INVESTED IN THE WORLD OF LAGLER”

Rob Matthews from Past & Present Wood Flooring has noticed dramatic change in business since he invested into the world of Lagler machinery. 

Rob Matthews & Jordan Knapp from Past & Present Wood Flooring.

Past & Present Wood Flooring recently visited KHR for their annual machine service. We were so impressed with how well kept and looked after their machines were. The director Rob Matthews was updating us on how business was going since the Lagler machine investment. He told us that it really was the best move he has ever made in his flooring career.

He invested a great deal into his Lagler machinery, took on the Lagler PST training, placing them onto the live PST Directory. He made use of the PST certified stickers, placing them on his van and he also made sure their PST certified status up on the company website.

In for a free annual service.

Rob said: “Business has changed so much since we invested in the world of Lagler. We have gone from 90% fitting and 10% of sanding to almost 50/50 already!”

“I am enjoying the refurbishment side of it and it’s really nice to finally have a balance, I really am enjoying it.”

“For years I hired machines and I felt I was wasting so much time running around picking up machines and then taking them back.” 

“It was costing so much per day and sometimes I would get machines which were not fit for purpose because they were not looked after properly. They would come out with a hole in the bag or the belts not running right, even down to the leads not even working.”

“This wouldn’t be all the time but it would happen from time to time. And this would really cause problems and waste our valuable time.”

Here at KHR, the technical team was so impressed with how well kept and clean the machines are.

“I am so pleased that we bit the bullet after all that and invested in this high-quality machinery from Lagler.”

“We took the time to do the PST training course, which was very useful I must say, even though I have been doing this a long time you never know enough, knowledge is key!”

“After the training, I placed the Lagler PST certified sticker on the van and we have our PST certified proudly up on our website.”

“I admit the investment was massive when getting all of the Lagler machines, including the extra add on equipment. The service here at KHR has been impeccable since we have been using Lagler machinery.” 

“It really has been the best move I have ever done in my flooring career.”

Side-Bonding 101

There are plenty of waterborne finishing products on the market that claim to prevent Side-Bonding, but what is this process, and why should you pick a premium “non-sidebonding” finish over a cheaper one?

Avoiding the effects of Side-Bonding

Ever had unsightly and unexpected gaps or cracks and splits appear in wood flooring?  If so, you are familiar with the nightmarish effects of Side-Bonding.

This problem occurs during the refinishing process when waterborne finishes and lacquers flow in between boards and glue the wood together. Due to the high durability and adhesion of modern floor finishes, this gluing-effect is often stronger than the wood fibres holding the boards together. As the wood naturally expands and contracts depending on the room climate and humidity, this causes huge stresses across entire sections of the floor until it finally cracks at the weakest point– usually right at the most visible point or in the middle of a walkway!
