Professional Flooring Installations
We install various kinds of flooring materials such as wood-based flooring - whether hardwood or softwood. We also install any form of artificial or engineered wood flooring including bamboo planks.
Our workers are constantly being trained on new and modern machines designed to install flooring materials without damaging the parts.
This helps to minimise wastages of your materials, reduced installation noise and increase the speed of work to allow you to return to your home quickly.
The use of these machines reduces damages to the concrete underneath the floor and helps to improve the longevity of your flooring materials.
Hardwood Flooring Installations
Flooring Installation Method
The choice of a method we use to install your floor depends on the type of flooring you have or want to install.
For example, to install wooden flooring we can either the glue method or without the glue method.
However, we’ll prefer to install engineered wood flooring by floating method because it can be done without glue and quickly too.
It is a better method where there is high traffic and you really do need to work fast before people start moving around.
On the other hand, installing natural hardwood flooring requires the use of glue to provide tough bonding and strong stability of the wooden planks on the floor.
