There are a number of different timber installation methods:
Solid Timber Flooring
Parquet blocks can be milled in a variety of sizes. This is a more time consuming installation process as the blocks are usually smaller than normal milled timber floorboards. However, for a unique finish, parquetry floors can certainly provide the wow factor to your home.
Direct Stick Floors
Cost effective however relies heavily on the evenness of the concrete floor. If the concrete floor is uneven this will show when the timber floors are installed so the slab may need to be ground and leveled prior to installation. Moisture barrier is laid and then adhesive applied to the floor. The floorboards are then weighted down or nailed, temporarily to the ensure the floorboards stick to the slab.
Plank on Ply Floors
Plywood is initially installed and the timber floorboards are then installed via the direct stick method or floating. This is particularly useful when the concrete slab is not level, which as mentioned above, will cause the timber floorboards to look uneven.
Is a good alternative to solid timber floors. The pre-engineered flooring
is placed on an underlay creating a floating floor. There is no need to sand/coat this floor.
The time it takes to install and finish a timber floor depends on the size of the area and finish required. After a solid timber floor has been laid we need to wait 3-4 days before sanding the floor. During this time you may walk and live on the floor if you need to. For Laminate Flooring once the floor is laid, you can walk on it/live on it instantly.
