Why have a wooden floor?

Wood is still one of the most beautiful materials you can fit to a floor. It has timeless appeal, it's warm under-foot, works well with under-floor heating and a high quality wood floor will last for decades - in some cases it ages better over time. As it's been used for flooring for thousands of years, it's tried and tested.

Buy the most expensive you can afford and get it installed properly. You will always get your money back on a quality wooden floor when it comes time to sell your property in Primrose Hill, so it's worth the investment over almost any other type of flooring.

As with any other floor the sub-floor preparation is key. This is one of the most common failings when DIY is attempted or general builders are asked to install wooden floors . We take great care to ensure the sub-floor is perfect for the wooden flooring project to be successful and to ensure it has a long life.

In addition to the sub-floor, wood floor installations have some unique aspects that must be considered before undertaking.

Dust Control

In a working home, shop or office, dust can be a major problem when undertaking a wooden floor installation. Properly cleaned floors free from dust help with better adhesion and adjacent rooms and their contents should be protected and sealed off. We spend a lot of time prepping the areas to minimize cleaning at the end because wood sawing equipment can capture only a percentage of the dust released. We are also one of the only installation companies using air purifiers to extract dust from the air. Nevertheless, you must be prepared for a good builder's clean at the end of the project.

Moisture checking

Incorrect moisture is another reason for wooden floor installation failures. We will ensure that moisture is within acceptable tolerances to minimize the risk of expansion or contraction within the new floor. A wood floor must be allowed to acclimatise to the humidity and temperature in the property during autumn and winter seasons.

Sub-floor preparation for wood floors

The sub-floor must be clean, level, solid and dry, free from dust and debris. We like to undertake the sub-floor preparation ourselves to remove unevenness from the floor and improve the bonding of the adhesives. In some installations we have undertaken in Primrose Hill, a liquid damp-proof membrane will be applied to the top of a concrete floor to protect against rising damp.

Wooden floor installation methods

There are many methods of installing a wooden floor but unless there are special circumstances which dictate it, we always recommend the 'stick-down' adhesive method for engineered wood floors. This makes the floor a part of the building, reduces the hollow sound that a floating floor makes when walked upon and makes it much less likely the floor will buckle in extreme heat or cold or if the floor gets wet. But there are others.

Floating 'Click'

The no-glue method useful for installations of thin engineered wood flooring and laminates. As we don't sell thin engineered wood we don't use it often but each plank locks to the next without the need for glue. As the planks are not fixed to the sub-floor an underlay can be installed for extra sound insulation. Most often this technique is used for fitting quality laminate floors.

Floating 'Tongue & Groove'

Each plank attaches to the other like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle and allows the installation of flooring planks with a thickness of 18mm plus.


Using the invisible nail method, nails are hammered below the surface of the plank at an angle of 45 degrees, pushing the plank down and backwards and into the previous row. A good technique for fitting thick, good quality hardwood.
