STEP 2

Preparation of sub-floor

The sub-floor needs to be prepared and the methods depend on the type of timber you have selected and the condition of the existing sub-floor.  This can either be installation of underlay, timber direct stuck to concrete or existing flooring or installation of plywood

STEP 4

Sanding and coating

Many timber floors now come pre-finished with no sanding and coating required.

Timber floors that require this process are sanded and coats applied, with light sanding in between each coat. Usually an application of 3 coats is recommended.

Maintenance

To protect your new timber floor the following are advisable:-

* Place mats in entries to avoid tracking of dirt onto   floor

* Attach protectors to bottoms of furniture legs to avoid   scratching

* Floors can be swept with anti-static mop and cleaned   weekly with a specialised timber floor cleaner

* SIT BACK AND ENJOY YOUR NEW FLOOR*
