Book A Free Flooring Survey
Share your Project Details With Us
Either share a floor plan or provide us with rough measurements of your areas and we will be able to issue a rough quote against that.
In order for us to quote more accurately, we will need to do a home Survey.
The person carrying out the survey will be able to take a note on all details such as: sizes involved, accessories required, subflooring preparation needs (if any).
As long as the property/location needing surveying is within London or surrounding counties, the survey is Free of charge.

Floor Installation Methods
A few notes on various installation methods applicable to wooden floors
The floating installation implies that there should be an underlay that is put down first and the floor stays on top of that directly.
In the case of floating installations, the planks are not fully glued or nailed on top of the underlay.
The planks are locked between eachother either via a click system plank lock or in some cases, if the product is T&G (tongue and groove) , this plank interlocking requires being glued.
The adhesive used for a glue-down installation might vary a bit. It depends on what the subfloor will be such as concrete, wooden base or a screed.
As wood is a natural product, in most cases you will come accross a "flexi" or "flexible" adhesive that will allow the floor to expand and contract a bit along the seasons.
Where underfloor heating is present, you would tipycally go for a high-heat or heat-resistant adhesive, that will not incur damage on the long run and after being exposed to high heat conditions.
Nail-down / Hidden Nails Installation
It is worth mentioning that in order to install floors this way, you will need a wooden subfloor.
Solid wood planks can be nailed directly on top of the joists where needed, however the floor planks need to be laid accross the direction of the joists.
In case of small sized parquet planks or strips, you can perform a hidden nail installation as long as you have a hardwood subfloor such as a WBP Plywood.
The acoustic requirement usually gets stricter when it comes to new builds or flats.
The high soundproofing level is usually achieved by a carefully selected underlay with a proper subfloor preparation.
When strict acoustic requireents come into play, you should know that the whole subfloor preparation and floor underlay installation can get a bit tedious. It does not represent an issue for us at Euro Floors London, but be aware that the whole subfloor plus underlay setup can raise a bit the floor level and will require extensive works.
One example being when installing herringbone or other parquets. With small strip parquets the advised installation method being to glue-down the floor. Additionally , should you also have a hardwood subfloor you can also mix the glue-down installation with the nailing method, to achieve a more sturdy floor.
Another scenario is to mix a floating installation with a glue-down or nail-down installation. Whenever wooden floors go into huge open areas and the floor is to be installed floating all around then you can mix in other install methods. It is usually recommended that once every good few rows installed floating, to secure the next 1-3 rows via nailing or glueing instead, this way achieving a more sturdy planks locking in the entire area.
