The story of our solid wood timber begins like the story of every being – it's born in green and idyllic landscape of a forest nearby London where grass and trees are greener. As every beautiful lumber we have noticed this one and imagine great looking floor in cosy family house in London. Worm holes, scars and stains come with every single piece of natural wood and they are great story tellers and food for imagination for the upcoming generation. Little imperfections like this make every solid floor one of a kind. Since we love unique wood so much, we see a great solid wood floor fitting project in timbers like this.
Since we've already chose the perfect London home for this timber, our fitting service begins with a free estimate. To ensure the long life of our beloved wood, we leave the timber to acclimatize, because real wood is sensitive to humidity 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 done. 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 can be also installed to existing timber by nailing.
As we already said, our timber has its own life, solid wood planks can “move” a little, affected by moisture levels and other reasons. 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.
The story of our beloved solid floor comes to an end. Flooring Services London guarantees long and solid life of every type of flooring. This is the case of our solid floor fitted in this London house we already tell you about. We love the happy end and our main goal is pleased clients for years and years. In that case, they lived happily ever after… If you want your little flooring story to end happily, contact us!
