Installation of wood flooring in Bramhall

Engineered Wood Flooring Bramhall | Wood Flooring Installation

PROJECT OVERVIEW
Edward Mellor Estate Agents contacted Luxury Flooring Manchester to specify, supply and fit engineered wood flooring in their director’s home in Bramhall, Cheshire.

The brief was straight to the point “we want a beautiful wooden floor, a classic natural oak  with a slightly rustic finish, supplied and fitted.” No problem! We shortlisted four favourites from two of the UK’S wood flooring manufacturers and we all just fell in love with Ted Todd’s Kinver Edge!

PREINSTALLATION WORK
 The property required extensive subfloor preparation work to establish a solid working level.  We used Hanson SP101 25MM ply, over the wood substrate. The new concrete slab required an epoxy liquid damp proof membrane (dpm) before screeding. Using a latex screed we the raised the level of the concrete to that of the ply. Letting the screed dry thoroughly for 72 hours, we then began to prime and re-screed the area so to establish a subfloor complied with British Standards, Surface Regularity SR1 level ( BS8203. 2-m straightedge laid in contact with the screed, Maximum gap measured with a slip gauge 3mm).
