|Wallis Timber Floors can install new timber floors to your new or existing floors using one of the methods mentioned below.|
The direct fixing method of gluing solid timber to concrete is an exciting innovation, involving specially machined flooring timber. Available species range from Tasmanian Oak, Blackbutt, Spotted Gum, Jarrah & many more (Visit our products page to view all species) Widths range from 80mm - 130mm and can be in either overlay timber (12-15mm) or floorboards of 19mm thickness, depending on the specie chosen and the width preferred. Specially formulated Polyurethane adhesives are used in this process.
PLANK ON PLY OVER CONCRETE
Using this method, a plywood sheet floor is fixed to the concrete slab over
a specially formulated moisture barrier. The floorboards are then fixed to the plywood base by secret nailing. This method has a total profile depth of about 34mm for the 19mm thick flooring.
This method is much more expensive, but gives you a more stable timber floor.
Using this method, a layer of polyfoam underlay is installed under an engineered or laminate floor. This flooring is not stuck to the floor in any way, it is floating. A beading is placed around the edges to keep it in place.
This is by far the cheapest and easiest way to install a floor. It is a very good solution for the DIY people who would like to save money on installation. The laminate products which can be installed this way are also very inexpensive.
