Ter Borcht Castle in Meulebeke has existed for centuries, so it was high time to renovate the building. The oak and larch floors were treated with Oil Plus 2C in the colors Pure and White 5%.
The castle dates back to the 17th century and has been occupied by hostile troops several times over the years. The municipality bought the castle in 1965 and had it renovated to accommodate a catering establishment, meeting room, offices and a reception area. To prepare the castle for the numerous visitors, the floors were treated with Oil Plus 2C.
For the restoration of the existing floors, it was necessary to disassemble the parquet. The oak panel parquet was then reinstalled, sanded and finished with Oil Plus 2C Pure. In the case of the oak Hungarian point, the ground had to be strengthened and levelled first, after which the parquet was put back in place. The floor was then treated with Pure, which makes maintenance much easier.
The Siberian larch plank floor was newly installed. The goal was to achieve as natural a result as possible. In this case, it is better to use a color with white pigmentation for larch wood. The choice for the color was therefore quickly made for White 5%.
