Oak floor installation and stair cladding in Maidenhead
When the detached house of one of our clients in Maidenhead was due to be remodelled they decided to use our engineered oak flooring. Oak flooring to be installed in the entrance Hall, Living room, Playroom, Landing and to clad the old stairs with the same oak.
The clients choose contemporary wide plank oak flooring from Chateau oak collection in Natural finish. An engineered oak flooring with an overall thickness of 20mm and 5mm wear layer and plank size of 225mm width.
The requirements of our clients were to remove the existing old mahogany parquet flooring blocks. Threat the concrete and fit the new engineered oak floorboards and to clad stairs with the same oak planks.
The old parquet flooring removed and the concrete floor underneath cleaned up from bitumen residue. This concrete was treated with Sika Primer which is an epoxy resin primer. Sika Primer MB is to consolidate the surface of the concrete, promotes adhesion and also used as moisture barrier.
Installing engineered oak floorboards on concrete floor were by gluing it down to the concrete by using high quality Sikabond adhesive.
Sikabond flooring adhesive is one component, solvent free and elastic adhesive. We love to use this adhesive as it has the high initial grab and its’ elasticity allows the flooring to expand and contract without putting much stress to the substrate.
By choosing to clad staircase with oak the staircase will last longer than the traditional looking carpeted stairs. More importantly by cladding the stairs will provide a more cost effective solution for their treatment.
The old tired looking staircase was clad with oak to tie the Entrance Hall and Landing together in order to create a more uniform and clean look. The most important space in the house was transformed and gives a most spectacular first impression when entering the house.
