Solid Oak Floor

Solid Oak Floor

Solid oak floor & re-pointed fireplace near Cleobury Mortimer, Worcestershire. Before we laid the oak floor the customer asked us to rake out the unsightly pointing of the inglenook fire place and re-point. Please see pictures below. This is a country grade, oiled,solid oak floor supplied by Ted Todd’s ( the wide plank company) layed in a two hundred year old cottage. Firstly the floors were prepared with F.Ball F75 epoxy resin damp proof membrane and then screeded over with F.Ball stopgap 300 HD flooring compound, the oak was glued down all over using Sika 54 flexible wood adhesive. A final coat of Osmo hard wax oil was then applied to finish the job.          ...
Conservatory

Conservatory

Electric underfloor heating in Hagley, West Midlands Firstly we supplied some oak bifold doors between the lounge and conservatory and recommended a local builder to fit them. The conservatory had a damp problem on one wall which we sorted out both internally and externally. As you can see from the pictures we then fitted 25mm Ecotherm insulation and 10mm Epanels before fittings the Elements heating mats, This was done to raise the floor so that the Quickstep engineered oak flooring would be level the the bifold door threshold. The Elements were glued to the floor and screeded over using Mapie ultraplan renovation screed which is flexible. The blue builders DPM (damp proof membrane) is laid to stop condensation between the under floor heating and the Quickstep wood flooring. Finally the oak flooring is laid and finished off with American white oak skirting. The same same oak flooring was then fitted in the lounge at a later date with all joints lining up with the conservatory.                            ...
