Before starting the installation of Boen engineered flooring making sure the subfloor is dry, levelled and self-supporting is essential. Approved by FlooringFirst subfloors are 22 mm chipboard, 19 mm plywood or 21 mm floorboards.
The moisture content of the subfloor should be within a range of a maximum of 12%. FlooringFirst operatives will measure the subfloors dampness if any concern is raised and hold the installation of the floors if levels go over the recommended readings.
Irregular sounds or faults in the subfloor should be noted before the installation of the floors. A layer of flooring underlay should be laid between the subfloor and the engineered flooring to avoid friction sounds. It also helps absorb minor evenness in the subfloor level.
Concrete sub-floors must be well levelled and devoid of cement lumps, etc. The tolerance limit is +/- 3mm per 2 running metres. It is always recommended the go for DPM enabled underlay or go for a separate layer of 0.20 mm thick plastic foil on the concrete to insulate against any remaining damp.
Floor coverings of linoleum, vinyl plastic, etc. do not need to be removed but a layer of foil is recommended between them and the flooring. Thin, firm carpet e.g. needle felt, is in itself, a good underlay for parquet but for reasons of hygiene we recommend that these be removed. All other types of carpet should be removed prior to installation.
