Here is a little more about what our office engineered floor fitting service consist of.
Engineered wood material is constructed under a strict quality control, however despite that fact, damages on single planks or transportation damages are possible. Our experts will check the panels before installation. We will visit your office in a convenient for you time, inspect the room where the installation is planned and discuss with you the best office engineered floor fitting strategy.
All subfloors should be prepared in order to ensure a smooth going fitting process and the best final results. Before the floor installation, there are several tasks you have to consider:
- The moisture test – Subfloor must be completely dry since the moisture can cause loose planks, wood cracking and other issues in future.
- The evenness test – The concrete base must be levelled to ensure the smooth and sleek look of the installed engineered wood planks.
- The cleanness test – The subfloor must be vacuumed and clean because dirt and dust can react with the wood adhesive.
Meeting the above-listed requirements, our technicians are now ready to start with the office engineered floor fitting. Engineered wood planks have the flexibility to be installed in various ways, including floating flooring configuration. The floating construction is a great option for subfloors, which can’t be levelled or dry for some reason. Engineered wood is better installed over all types of concrete, particleboard and fiberboard bases and over existing flooring such as PVC, linoleum, ceramic tails, etc. In some cases, we may suggest additional services such as applying insulation and moisture barrier underlayment in order to prevent the flooring from issues and to secure existing cables, pipes, heating systems.
Engineered wood planks look best if laid parallel to the light coming from the windows. Engineered wood planks come in a tongue-and-groove fitting system, which gives us a lot of installation alternatives. During laying the planks, structural gaps should be left in order to allow wood’s expansion. One of the most popular options for fixing the flooring planks are by stapling them, nailing down or embed with quality wood adhesive.
