TIMBER FLOORING SERVICES
Wooden Flooring Installation
Our timber flooring services include flooring installation. All jobs are fully supervised, we ensure an expert and professional job, completed on time and according to your quote.
We can pull up and remove you existing floor and prepare rooms for your new floor. Floor boards can be installed across beams or battens. Once the room is ready installation can be completed quite quickly.
Boards are nailed to the battens using a nail gun.
Alternatively your floor can be laid over concrete – this can be either floating (not nailed or glued) or glued in place.
When we book the installation date and time, we will allow adequate time for preparation.
The concrete will need to be smooth and free of bumps and hollows to ensure a perfect finish and long life. We have the equipment to grind out any lumps and can also fill any hollows.
Other preparation includes ensuring there is adequate room for your new floor under door architrave and ensuring there is no dust or loose particles on the floor, which will prevent the floor from sticking properly.
Once the concrete is prepared we will lay and stick down underlay that will dampen the sound and protect the floor. Your new floor is then laid over the underlay.
Most modern floor planks are interlocking via a tongue and groove or similar system, meaning floor boards fit together neatly, without ugly gaps.
Worried about expansion and shrinkage due to moisture content or changing conditions? Don’t fret. We only use timber that has had time to acclimatise to the environment. If your floor is going into a room where temperature and humidity is constantly changing then we will recommend the most suitable timber for the room and the conditions. We also allow sufficient space around the perimeter of the floor for some movement.
