Discover our 7 Step Installation Process
We are delighted to share with you our installation of a beautiful ash fumed oak floor, installed over underfloor heating, recently undertaken for a customer in Suffolk.
The customer was provided with many bespoke wood floor samples at the outset to aid with their decision making process. They selected a stunning bespoke ash fumed European solid Oak floor to be laid in a Chevron pattern. White oil was also applied to the final finish to achieve the agreed aesthetic.
Before works commence, detailed installation advice was given to the customer on site, ensuring that site logistics and the schedule of works were made clear, to include sub-floor preparation requirements. Site checks were also undertaken, to include floor moisture readings and relative humidity.
Time is spent carefully setting out the floor layout, to ensure the overall appearance is aesthetically pleasing and works well with adjoining architectural features.
It is important to use compatible primers and adhesives when installing a wood floor, especially over underfloor heating.
Details, however small, such as perimeter and mitre joints, are so important to get right. Careful attention to selection of the wood, to ensure a good variation of grain and colour throughout the floor.
A specialised breathable protection product was laid on the floor, followed by a layer of hardboard. This was done to ensure the floors were protected whilst other site works and decoration were continuing on at the property.
Provision of aftercare advice for cleaning and maintenance to ensure the floor remains at its best.
Installing a new wood floor over underfloor heating needn’t be difficult, but considerations must be made to ensure that you get the beautiful wood floor you want. Our Contracts Manager, Matt Knight and our Managing Director, James Hyde have filmed a discussion they had regarding our 5 main considerations for wood floors and underfloor heating.
