SITE CONDITIONS FOR WOOD FLOORS

It is essential that floor laying does not commence before all other wet trades have completed their work. Failure to observe this simple rule may result in the floor being damaged.

The Site Conditions at the time the floor is installed are essentially the same for all wooden floors

1. No floor should be installed in a building that is not 100% weather tight.
2. All plastered areas must be fully dry and base coat decorated.
3. All interior doors should be trimmed to allow for the floors overall thickness.
4. The room where the floor is to be installed should be held at a constant temperature of 18-20 Celsius before, during and after the installation.
5. Relative Humidity should be in the range of 40-60%.
6. Floors installed on concrete or screeded sub floors must have sufficient time to dry to acceptable levels before flooraying can commence. A good indication is 1mm per day drying time.
7. Where the sub floor is wood, it is advisable to remove any ridges and fix any loose or squeaking boards before the floor is installed.
8. The sub floor should be flat to 3mm over a 2 metre straight edge ( 2mm when measure with a 1 metre straight edge). The same degree of flatness should be achieved when installing floors over joists or battens.
9. Underfloor heating systems must be operated at two thirds of their maximum output for 2 weeks prior to the floor being installed.
10. The flooring should be placed in the room in advance of the installation date to allow the flooring to reach the same temperature as the room. (This is essential in winter as the material may be cold, increasing the risk of condensation).
11. It is essential that no packages are opened in advance of the installation date unless specified in the installation instructions.
12. For specific information relating to membrances etc, please refer to the products installation instructions or contact us.
