What do flooring services include?
Professional flooring installation means more than just a floor that looks good. Your flooring contractor will make sure your floors are safe, slip-free, and will last decades by using the best preparation and installation methods. Some popular flooring options include: Concrete flooring Concrete floors are becoming more popular for their durability - not just in garages and sheds, but inside the home, as well.
A concrete flooring professional can install new concrete floors, or change the look of your existing floors with concrete polishing and epoxy coatings to add colour and texture to your floor. Depending on what you need done, they may work with concrete, a mixer, a grinder, and floor polish or epoxy to protect and seal the floor.
When installing carpets, you’ll first need the old carpet removed. Carpet removal can be a dusty, heavy job, so your carpet specialist will use crowbars to lift the carpet and knives to cut the carpet into sections. They’ll wear durable gloves to protect their hands when they lift and roll the carpet. If the insulation or underfelt is in good condition, you may be able to lay the new carpet directly on top. Your contractor will measure out the right size for your new carpet, before cutting it out and rolling it in place. They’ll use a knee kicker to push the carpet firmly into the edges and corners of your room, trimming the excess carpet.
While timber floorboards might be a higher maintenance option, floating floors come with many benefits, with a huge range of styles. And they’re relatively easy to repair if one board gets chipped or damaged. Your flooring contractor can advise you on environmentally friendly options, such as bamboo and cork floorboards, as well. Floorboard installation starts with clearing the area before wooden struts are positioned to create a framework for the boards to sit on. At this point, you can choose to install soundproof insulation under your bamboo floorboards or timber floorboards to help reduce noise. Then your contractor will install your timber floorboards over the wooden struts. Once your new floor is installed, you can keep it looking it’s best with regular polishing and refinishing.
Tiles are popular for bathroom flooring, or throughout the whole house for easy cleaning. Tile floor installation involves laying marble, stone, or ceramic tiles on the floor. When installing tiles, your flooring professional will usually first remove the existing flooring. This may require tools such as a jackhammer or a chisel and hammer to break up and lift the old tiles. Then they’ll prepare the area with adhesives and concrete, before laying the tiles. Once the adhesive has set, your tiler will apply grout in the gaps between each tile, creating a waterproof surface.
Laminate, vinyl & linoleum flooring
Getting your vinyl, linoleum, or laminate floors professionally installed usually starts with removing any old floor coverings and skirting boards. Laminate flooring is usually easy to remove but may require chemical solvents, depending on the adhesives used. Once the area is cleared, the floors will be levelled and prepared with any underlay and insulation required. At this stage, your flooring contractor may add in things like waterproofing or underfloor heating. Your flooring contractor %location% will use their tools to lay the floor, usually working from the corner furthest from the door, making sure the area is level, square, and plumb as they go.
