when laying solid wood flooring concrete what do i need to do?

solid wood flooring 7 Comments »


When installing a solid wood floor over concrete you must:

a: install a layer of visqueen(thick, plastic sheeting) over the concrete

b: install plywood over visqueen

c: Install felt paper over plywood

d: If 3/4" solid, nail to plywood. If 5/16" or 7/16" solid, glue using a urethane adhesive, such as Bostik’s Best.

Please do not try to glue a 3/4" solid, I’ve never seen it work successfully for an extended period of time.

The nature of a solid wood floor is to want to soak up moisture…the above steps will prevent the wood from absorbing moisture from the concrete. Don’t forget to acclimate your solid wood for at least one week, but preferably two!

Question about purchase solid wood flooring from China?

solid wood flooring 6 Comments »

Would you mind to give me some information on how to purchase solid wood flooring from China?
How to get the information about the Chinese solid wood flooring manufacturer?

Try www.linanwindow.com, it’s wood flooring manufacturer in China, I know there are many others also. Many Chinese floor products are available worldwide. Probably the most popular flooring from China these days is bamboo, and for your information and the tree-hugger who previously answered your question, bamboo is a very renewable source and considered quite environmentally friendly, and is the number one choice for today’s "green" builders. You can buy solid or laminated bamboo products and because it is such an easily renewable product, the prices are quite reasonable for bamboo and probably is available wherever you live. A couple of the brand names you might want to do a websearch for are Bamtex and Plyboo, or just type bamboo flooring into your browser. Another big plus for Bamboo is it’s hardness and durability. Good luck!

what’s the best way to lay solid wood flooring over floorboards?

solid wood flooring 5 Comments »

The floorboards are a little uneven but overall the floor is level.

Get it even , and when your satisfied with it start laying on an out side wall or longest site line depending where your laying the wood. Must go perpendicular to the joists. You have no choice there. Clean subfloor and lay a row of felt paper. Get 2/3 rows started STRAIGHT by nailing into the tongue. Then use your nailer or stapler to nail into the tongue. A power/air nailer is the best thing you can rent. Will save your arm greatly since it doesn t take as much hitting on the nailer when using a power nailer GL
