Smoked oak flooring
We checked the level of the concrete before we started fitting this beautiful smoked oak flooring from Chateau collection. It was sound and flat. There was no need for levelling. Then we applied Sika Primer MB for consolidation ability and for moisture barrier. We trimmed all of the skirting boards and architraves prior the installation. This will allow us to install the flooring neatly under the skirting boards. When the direction of the flooring was decided we started the fitting by applying the Sika Bond Liquid Batten system. We pulled the flooring together with straps along side the walls to keep the solid oak floor tightly packed together. Smoked oak flooring we kept in place with straps until next day to let the glue set. To finish off the job, we cut the doors and installed the door-stops.
The finished smoked oak flooring is stunning. Here is the picture!
