Bespoke Oak Engineered Boards Installation in NW1 Holloway, London
We may say this floor is totally unique and there is none in London alike. Each board is individually cut to create a design pattern. To complete the exceptional appearance the floor joins seamlessly with the walls, not having a skirting or additional trims, the expansion gap being discreetly concealed.
This particular flat was previously a painter workshop and this was the cause of a sub-floor loaded with layer of thick gummy oil paints which were making impossible the installation of our floor. We tried different approaches to clean the screed and we ended-up painstakingly grinding it. The friable parts of screed were removed and patched with high strength boding mortar.
After we were pleased with the sub-floor an impact sound reduction membrane was glued over to cope with the footfall sound and to provide additional thermal insulation by separating the sub-floor from the wooden floor.
Also this allowed us to glue the engineered floor over the membrane thus achieving a solid floor.
A very important step was calculating the symmetry and centring the floor to obtain the best look and to avoid unexpected ends against the walls
We recommended the engineered boards from The Natural Wood Floor Co. for their exceptional quality.
