Installation

Floating Floors
For 14mm thick engineered wooden flooring. As all sides are tongued and grooved, gaps are eliminated on floors laid in this manner, but the floor is still able to breathe and expand as required. Laid on a dry, level surface such as concrete, particle board or wood floor boards.

   
   
   
         
         
         
         
         
         
               
      Fully Bonded
For 14mm thick engineered wooden flooring. An alternative to floating where a slightly quieter floor is required. Flooring can be fully bonded to any dry, level surface such as concrete, particle board or 6mm ply laid first onto wooden floor boards. We recommend that gluing should be done by our professional installers.
  Secret Nailed
For solid wooden flooring. Plank flooring is secret nailed onto battens existing joists or onto existing timber floors. Flooring is nailed through the tongue onto the sub-floor by using a porta-nailer gun. On concrete slab floors, we recommend laying 18mm plywood first.
       
   
Site Conditions

All building work including wet trades should be finished. There should be no visible or measured signs of moisture or condensation. The building should be heated (including normal ventilation) to its generating temperature for at least one month prior to the floor being fitted.

On Delivery of solid floors
All solid hard wood flooring should be left to acclimatize in the room for around one week prior to the installation. The temperature should be around 15 - 25 degrees, and the relative humidity should be between 40 - 50%/


Uplifts and floor levelling
Old carpets and skirting can be removed by our fitters prior to installation of your new floor. Some floor levelling may be required, this can also be done by our fitters using an high quality self levelling compound or a rapid setting screed.

Sanding and Sealing
The first sanding is done with a large floor sander using progressively finer grits for a smooth finish. The floor can then be finished with hard wax, oil, lacquer, white oil or master oil depending upon your choice.
