We were recently asked to quote on flooring in Hemel Hempstead, which again came by way of recommendation. The house in question was a rather unconventional layout with the living space and kitchen upstairs, and a bedroom and large converted garage downstairs.
The previous floorcovering was the original cork flooring. Unfortunately, this was rather well stuck down and proved quite difficult to lift. After utilising a floor-stripper we managed to remove the cork. The floor then required two further applications of floor-levelling/smoothing compound to get it to the correct state to start fitting.
The chosen floor was supplied by Bausen and was a 125mm wide, 18mm thick Oak floor in Rustic Grade. This product is supplied pre-finished which negates any need to apply further finishes, although it is recommended to apply a finish after a year if the floor looks to be wearing. This type of flooring is installed as a floating floor by gluing the tongue and groove joints together.
Following this we then supplied and fitted Torus skirting boards, matching thresholds and put in a coir mat at the entrance to protect the floor.
