Great consideration needs to be taken when preparing floors ready to receive new floor coverings. The quality of the finished floor will only be as good as the subfloor over which it has been laid. All flooring finishes require a clean, sound, level surface that is sufficiently strong and capable of supporting any applied subfloor preparation materials and the chosen floor finish. Successful preparation of the subfloor will ensure the longevity of the installation. Some of the factors that need to be taken in to account are –

  • Underfloor Heating
  • Humidity
  • Old adhesives and screed residues
  • Smoothness
  • Cracks and movement joints
  • Contamination
  • Timber Floors (chipboard, plywood, T&G boards)

With our vast experience and close working relationships with a number of the key suppliers of preparation materials we are able to determine the best solution for each project. This helps eliminate any potential problems.
