Solid tumbled parquet flooring and preparation work

Mazon Flooring were approached by our client from Leicester, who had been recommended our services as a master installer of herringbone wood flooring [link].
After discussing over the phone the details of the job and what preparation work the builder had done as part of their work, and the point at which the client was asking us to take over from, we offered confirmed prices for the installation of the floor and some estimated costing and contingency costings for the sub-floor preparation works. The customer was happy to proceed based on theses figures, and we arranged a site survey to test for construction moisture and look at the required smoothing and levelling work required.
After the survey had been completed we confirmed the sub-floor preparation costings, including for a paint on damp proof membrane to protect the herringbone wood flooring and for grinding the sub-floor to remove any debris and contamination in the top surface of the builder’s screed.
Upon agreement of costings, we proceeded with the preparation works, first grinding the sub-floor, then applying a paint on damp proof membrane and finally the application of a smoothing compound to make sure all surfaces were smooth and sufficiently level to receive a herringbone wood floor. Mazon Flooring then proceeded to install the tumbled herringbone wood flooring. We finished the install with two coats of hard wax oil and also completed the installation of the herringbone wood flooring on to two small sets of stairs.
The installation of herringbone wood flooring is time consuming and take a great deal of skill and attention. Almost more important than the actual installation itself, is the correct preparation of the sub-floor to make sure it is smooth, flat and either free from moisture or that the finished herringbone wood floor is protected from construction moisture.
The finished floor for our client will last a lifetime if correctly maintained, and will add value and prestige to the property.
