A wooden floor can be placed in different ways. The method used depends on the current floor of your home. This floor acts as a subfloor and base for your new floor.
Our wooden floors can be installed on almost any base floor (called screeds). It applies to every basic floor that it must be permanently dry, hard, flat (this does not necessarily mean level), clean, well-supporting, strong and dimensionally stable.
The advice is to cover the floors when performing other work, in this case it is protected against dirt and moisture. This is only necessary while performing other work. Please note, covering new poured screeds (sand/cement, anhydrite, wood magnesite/monolith) can affect the duration of the drying process.
For the installation of the wooden floor, we recommend a flatness class 2 for the best end result. The floor may have a maximum gradient of 4 mm in height over a length of 2 meters.
The installation of the wooden floors can be either floating or glued. Which installation method can be used depends on the type of base floor and installation pattern.
Below we explain the most common screed floors and the various points of attention that must be taken into account when preparing to install a wooden floor.
The top layer of the subfloor is considered as a working floor. Our experienced inspector assesses whether this layer is suitable for installation of a wooden floor. Sometimes it is necessary to improve the quality of the existing subfloor. We always have a solution. All working floors must be flat, dry and firm. We describe the details of the different types of subfloors for you below.
