We offer our customers installation of :
- solid timber floor
- floating floor
- laminate floating floor
Solid timber floor is designed to be laid directly onto joists, battens over concrete, or even nailed to old timber flooring. To install solid timber floor in units, we need to lay the solid timber floor over 5 mm acoustic mating and min. 15 mm thick plywood. Solid timber floor tongue and groove (19 mm thick) is designed to be nailed down. Boards widths up to 80 mm can be secret-nailed into the tongue while wider boards up to 130 mm are top-nailed. As any solid timber product will be effected by changes in the moisture content of the air, we recommend that the solid timber floor is acclimatised to its new environment for an appropriate time ca. 2 weeks.
There are products on the market like pre-finished or raw overlay solid timber flooring tongue and groove 12-15 mm thick, which can be directly glued over concrete slab(concrete has to be in level according standard), over old timber floors or over particleboard or plywood subflooring. First, there has to be a moisture barrier applied. In units to keep proper sound insulation, the flooring can be glued after applying the moisture barrier to the 5 mm acoustic mating.
Timber or laminate floating floor can be laid over any sound, dry and flat sub-floor (concrete, tiles, linoleum and old floor boards). An requirement is 2 mm foam underlay according Australian standards, which reduces foot noise and sound in multi-story buildings. Floating floor with clic system doesn't require any glue comparing with tongue and groove floating floor, which has to be glued.
