Survey

 

Prior to installation of any hardwood floor, a site survey would be required.

During the survey, finishing details and trims will  be discussed  to best compliment the floor selected. This will include details such as bevelled or square edges to the boards, borders and inlay feature strips. There are also many types of floor finishes. Each floor finish has advantages and disadvantages depending on the individuals lifestyle.

Raymond Peters solid or engineered wood floors can be, if required, fitted under the existing skirting, giving a more superior and professional finish than that of hardwood floors which have not been installed this way.

The majority of all installations would be installed onto the existing sub floor. This will be of either a wood or concrete construction.  During the survey the levels and condition of the sub floor would be viewed. It is important that the sub floor levels are flat and within the industry standards. Failure to meet these tolerances could affect the performance of the floor and may even affect the guarantee. The moisture content of the sub floor would also be taken during the survey, using a protimeter, to ensure this too is within the permitted range.

Depending on where the hardwood floor is to be installed and the type of sub floor, a sound reduction underlay or acoustic deck may be required to reduce the level of noise to rooms or properties below. The simplest, easiest, and most cost-effective to install would be an acoustic underlay. Underlays vary in acoustic properties depending on level of noise reduction required. If a higher level of acoustic tolerance is required then the existing sub floor can either be removed and an acoustic deck installed or, alternatively, a deck which is laid directly on to an existing sub floor can be used.

Once the survey has been completed a detailed and itemised quote will be forwarded to you.

All surveys and technical advice are offered with no obligation and will be provided free of charge.
