Top Timber Flooring related questions

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant timber flooring licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

The main types of timber flooring are planked floorboards (made from either hard or soft woods) and engineered floorboards (these use a mixture of woods to create a stronger surface). You can also create a timber look floor with floating floorboards in laminate, cork, and bamboo. 

It depends on where the wood will be used, as well as your budget. Engineered floorboards are better for areas with some water and moisture, as the layers of wood allow for some flexion that hardwood doesn’t. If you want to apply floorboards over concrete, you need to choose engineered floorboards.

Compared to other options, such as tiles and carpets, wood flooring will damage more easily from high heels, pet claws, scraping furniture, and dropping heavy items. These small dents and scratches are usually minor and can be easily sanded away. Timber floors are more durable than vinyl and laminates, which will show wear and tear easily.

If possible, you should empty the room before your floors are installed. This includes drapes, blinds, pictures, and all furniture. You’ll also need to prepare an undercover outdoor cutting area where the installers can work, with access to electricity and lighting, plus easy access to the house.

The time it takes to lay a timber floor will vary depending on the materials used, how well prepared the area is beforehand, and how many people are working on it. Generally speaking, the whole process of preparation, acclimatising the floorboards, installation, and cleanup may take up to two weeks. The laying process requires about 1 day per 40m₂ room.

What does a timber floor installation service include?

Once you’ve decided to install timber floorboards - and you’ve found the best floorboards for your home - it’s time to get them installed. Here’s the process you can expect when you work with a professional timber flooring installer:

Area preparation

Before your new floor can be laid, the area will need to be fully prepared to give the best results. This will change slightly depending on the materials underneath and the type of floorboards. The floor underneath needs to be dry, clean, and stable. Ideally, all skirting boards, doors, and door frames will be removed at this stage, too. Also, timber floorboards usually require some level of acclimatisation before being laid to adjust to the temperature and moisture levels to prevent warping and shrinkage. So, you’ll need to leave the boards open in the room where they’ll be laid. This process can take up to a week.

Timber Flooring Installation

Before installing your floorboards, your timber floor installer will lay your choice of moisture-proofing and insulation material. Insulation is important to reduce the noise of floorboards and help regulate the temperature of the house. Once the underneath layers are in place, the new boards will be installed. The method of installation will vary with the materials chosen - solid timber floors need a substructure underneath that they can be secured to, whereas engineered boards can be laid directly over tiles, concrete, or other wooden boards. The boards are usually installed parallel to the longest length of the room, or is visible from the front door, perpendicular to the door.

Before laying the boards, your installer will usually plan out the layout to make sure the lengths, colours, grades, and variations in the timber are spread throughout the floor. They’ll glue or nail your floorboards in place, allowing for a small gap around the perimeter (that will be covered by skirting boards) for expansion.

Cutting & shaping

Once the bulk of your floor has been laid, your installer will carefully measure, cut, and install smaller board sections around corners, cupboards, and doorways. This ensures a tight finish that blends with the overall design.

Cleanup & finish

If you’ve chosen solid floorboards, they may need to be sanded to a level finish, stained, and sealed with a topcoat to protect the wood from scratches and damage. This process might mean you can’t finish the installation and cleanup for a few days. If you’ve chosen engineered floorboards, they are usually pre-sealed, leaving them ready to use. Once the floors are ready, the doors, skirting boards, and door frames are all attached and painted if they need a fresh coat. Then your contractor will clean up the room and any work areas that were used for cutting and painting.

Timber flooring repairs & restoration

Over time, wooden floors can get damaged from water, pets, furniture, high heels, and even dirt. If the damage is minor, you may be able to refinish the surface with light sand, a new coat of sealant, and polishing. More extensive structural damage may need a professional floor repair specialist who can assess and fix the problem correctly.

Mike did a wonderful job with our floors and stairs! The finished result is of an extremely high quality. His fees are very competitive and his service professional. He was prompt to respond when communicating regarding the job and kept me informed during the planning and installation process. On the day of installation he arrived on time, there was no fuss. He said the stairs were a little trickier than planned as they were marginally different widths, but he worked through this issue and found a solution, no fuss. He also cleaned and tidied before he left. I wouldn’t hesitate booking Mike for further jobs or recommending his services to anyone. Thanks Mike!
