On arrival at this property, it was clear that the subfloor would need a lot of work prior to installation. The customer picked AB LEWIS 180mm oiled tongue and groove boards which gives a warm natural feel through the house.
The subfloor in this property consisted of old concrete with old bitumen adhesive and newly fitted chipboard in the extension. For us to get the correct levels we had to patch latex prior to latexing the full subfloor. With the subfloor consisting of chipboard and bitumen adhesive the Ardex N/A was our go to latex compound.
Engineered Oak tongue and groove boards would need to be fully adhered to the subfloor using Bona R848 flexi adhesive. All the matching oak thresholds were cut and the floor set out. We dry fit sections of the floor before we spread any adhesive which allows us to ensure all cuts are perfectly measured and spaced. We randomly stagger the planks to give a natural look. AB LEWIS supplied the oak board pre-finished so once the adhesive is set and all thresholds fitted the job is complete. The customer was very happy and couldn’t wait to move in just before Christmas.
