Our biggest goal is mixing hard work, high quality wooden floors and imagination for the top results.
Once you choose solid wood floor for you residential or commercial project, our fitting service starts with a free estimate. To ensure the long life to your new solid hardwood floors, we leave the timber to acclimatise, because real wood is sensitive to moisture, change of temperatures and environment and need some time to get used to its new home. While acclimatization, we want to be sure that subfloor, which we lay above the solid installation is properly prepared. If not, our crew will clean and level subfloor if it is concrete. Concrete should be dry and even so the fitting service will work in properly and flooring adhesive won't react, leading to loose fitting. If subfloor isn't even we advise underlay, which creates a smooth surface and reduce sounds of footsteps.
Solid wood planks can be also fitted to plywood subfloor by nailing.
As mentioned, our solid timber has its own life, solid wood planks can “move” a little, affected by moisture levels and seasonal change of temperature. By moving we mean that because of the character and specifies of real wood, timber can contract and expand. When fitting of the solid floor it's important an expansion gaps around 15 mm should be leaved around walls to allow the movement.
