Access point under solid wood flooring question.?

solid wood flooring Add comments

Our dining room is currently carpeted. Underneath the carpet is the access point to the two-foot high space under the floorboards, where radiator pipes and electric wiring run. If we wanted to instal solid wood flooring in this room, what could be done about the under floor access?

I am a floor installer and I run into this once and a while . what I usually do is find another part of the house ,usually a closet and create new access. cover your new floor completely wood flooring is not cheap and it will look like poor qualityafter a few months .the best area is a closet or if you are able go in from the side of the house and make an access door .you can easily do this at little cost

    You can buy and install an service hatch that allows you install solid wood flooring onto it. We have this in our conservatory for a drain to allow access in case of blockage, its a sealed hatch that has the same tiles installed on to it to match the floor, there is a key to undo it and its has gold edging so that it looks good and unobtrusive. See this for typical installations of the type I am talking about: http://www.accessflooring.com/?gclid=CN2mvfT_jJ4CFZoU4wodQ0Zupg
