Solid Timber may installed usning a number of techniques,
– Direct to concrete slab. Adhesive is applied directly with the floor installed by tongue and groove method on top
-To a plywood midsection. The ply is affixed to the slab and the floor applied to this mid-layer. This has the advantage of minimising warping and movement of the top layer.
Whichever method is used, the final surface will need to be sanded several times using a number of sanding grades and then have layers of lacquer applied as a top coat and sealant.
- Can be sanded many times, very long lasting.
- Can be polished with different types of coatings, water-based, solvent-based, oils and waxes.
- Varying sheens, high and semi-gloss, matt and satin.
- Solid timber can be level with your carpet and tiles in adjoining rooms.
- Quieter than floating floors.
