Installation Summary

Australian Native 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. If the sub floor is uneven it must be levelled prior to installation. To minimize shade variation, mix & install planks from several cartons. We recommend a 10-14mm expansion gap around perimeters and all room fixtures. They come with Välinge 2G click lock system and no glue is required for a normal installation, however Australian Native Engineered Flooring can be direct stuck if desired. 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. If you are unsure about installation, or would like a full installation guide, we encourage you to contact us with questions or to make a booking for a check measure & quote.
