Installation Methods of Engineered Wood
Using the latest and approved flooring installation techniques, our flooring fitters can install your engineered flooring in number of ways, depending on the current environment & specifics.
Fitting Engineered Wood as a Floating Floor
Installation of Engineered wood as a floated floor is a standard and most common technique for fitting of engineered timber. Using this installation method, gives you freedom not to do massive preparation of the subfloor base, which will potentially gives you some savings of your flooring budget.
When fitting engineered wood as a floated floor you have the freedom to chose an appropriate underlay, which will add some moisture, sound or thermal benefits to your flooring.
Gluing Down Engineered Wood
Gluing down is another standard installation method for engineered wood. This method of installation gives you the opportunity to fully bond your flooring on to the base, creating stable and solid feel of your wooden floor. Our Experienced floor fitters would use flexible engineered wood flooring adhesive in order to maximize the stability of the chosen engineered timber.
Our Quality Engineered wood is perfectly suitable to be glued down, as it has plywood base, which is recommended structure of the engineered flooring, that needs to be bonded on to the subfloor. Please note that some budget options of Engineered wood have completely different structure, which is not suitable for this method of installation.
Secret Nailing Engineered Flooring Installation
Nailing down a floor board requires that there are wooden joists or wooden subfloor, to nail the boards into. The ‘secret’ part of this method is that the nails are hidden from above because they are driven through the tongue that runs down the side of the flooring board. The tongue is then slotted into the groove on the adjacent board, hiding the nails from view.
For this method you need flooring boards of at least 18mm thick. Our Standard Engineered Wood Flooring comes in 20mm total thickness and it is suitable for this method of installation. Once again, pretty much no budget option engineered flooring will be compatible to be secret nailed.
Preparation of Subfloor
Good Preparation work is a key to good flooring work. It is essential to have subfloor prepared for your new engineered wood fitting. This is where you would really need a professional advise in order to do the flooring work right. Our surveyors are happy to advise about any potential requirements of the existing base that would be of a significant importance to the installation of your engineered wood. There are number of things that may be required and/or recommended to be carried prior fitting of your engineered wood, such as:
- Removing of existing floor covering and sub floor.
- Leveling of the existing joists or concrete.
- Installation of plywood, in order to provide firm base of the new engineered wood.
- Thermal insulation
- Sound proofing
- Damp proofing
