Important things to know about Wood flooring installation
If you’re installing solid wood flooring yourself, never glue solid wood planks in the tongue and groove connection when they’re installed floating. Instead, you must attach the planks to the sub-floor by means of gluing, nailing or screwing.
When using nails or screws, drill the planks out to avoid the tongue from splitting.
Installing Wood Flooring directly on joists or supports
20mm solid wood flooring can be installed directly on joists or supports, but they must have a fixed distance of 60mm.
Loose supports must have a minimum dimension of 36mm x 68mm and fixed supports 36mm x 48mm.
Use 25 / 65 galvanised nails or galvanised screws.
Remember to leave a clearance to all walls and fixed projections of a minimum of 3mm per metre room width.
Installed on a wooden sub-floor
To start with, lay builder’s paper before nailing or screwing to the sub-floor. Install the plank with clearance to all walls and fixed projections with a minimum 3mm per metre room width. Use the nail and screw dimensions stated above.
Installation on a concrete floor
With a concrete sub-floor the Wood Flooring must be glued to the concrete. The sub-floor must be level, dry and void of cement lumps etc.
As a main rule, the relative humidity (RH) of the concrete must be less than 75%. Never use ordinary adhesive.
Follow the manufacturers instructions and remember to allow clearance to all walls and fixed projections of a minimum 3mm per room width.
