Installation Summary

Première Oak Engineered Flooring is suitable for indoor use, floating with an appropriate underlay with a plastic moisture barrier on a 100% flat, dry, waterproofed and structural subfloor such as plywood, particleboard, existing timber floorboards or concrete slabs. It is also suitable for installation over ceramic tiles & terrazzo as long as the surface is 100% flat. To minimize shade variation, mix & install planks from several cartons. We recommend a 10mm expansion gap around perimeters and all room fixtures. Rooms larger than 6 metres will need additional expansion joints.
They are a tongue & groove system which can be floated or direct stuck onto a suitable prepared subfloor. On completion of installing your floor, install, trims, skirting or scotia over the expansion gap, fasten these to the wall only, never to the flooring itself. In places where profiles or skirtings cannot be placed, fill the expansion gaps with an elastic filler.
They are designed to be DIY friendly for most normal dwellings, however Installing Engineered flooring requires a level of skill & it is recommended that a qualified tradesperson with the relevant skill levels install engineered floors. All our installation teams are qualified and professional for your piece of mind.
