Factors You Consider Before Installing a Timber Floor
It is important for you to consider the moisture content of the timber floor to be installed. The appropriate content should be about 9 to 14 percent to ensure that it is not damaged once it is installed.
When installing, it is highly recommended that you make of water based adhesives. Polyurethane should be avoided at all costs because it is known to cause the timber edges to bond permanently hence disfiguring the required shape. You should be prepared for some creaking sounds as this happens especially when you walk on the timber surface that has stayed for long without being used.
Types of Timber Floors
The type of timber floor chosen depends greatly on your individual taste. In most cases, the timber used is natural except that there are some cases when it can be mixed with other materials according to your specifications.
• Bamboo is among the most commonly used flooring materials. It takes a relatively short time to mature, hence its preference. You can choose to apply an attractive finishing on the bamboo made floor by using shiny varnishes.
• Laminate flooring makes your house comfortable because it consists of several layers to prevent moisture from penetrating.
• Parquety comes in beautiful colours and has a tender texture. Its installation is highly associated with sophistication.
