solid wood flooring Add comments

what is the best way to lay it

Zacerous is going on about floorboards!

£300 – £600

Ask friends if they no any good carpenters they could recommend that want any work on the side, they would do it much cheaper than a self employed carpenter who needs to make more money!

The more expensive the flooring the more it cost to fit

    Meters in length or square meters? I’m in kent & would do it for around £300

    Edit* Zacerous doesn’t seem to know what he is talking about. You don’t nail interlocking flooring, Its whats known as a "Floating Floor" as long as it is fixed together properly then thats fine. Just be sure to leave a 10mm expansion gap around the edges to allow for movement of the wood.

    Funnily enough, i just did a test on this in Tafe just a week ago.
    Ok there are two common ways of fixing flooring. That is either face nailed, or secret nailed. You will have a square edge profile for face nail (rectangle shape looking at end grain). Tongue and grove is exactly that, one side has a groove the other side has tongue, both sides interlock with the next board parallel. note: each board will have a tongue on one end and a grove on the other (this is so you can float over battens, if using battens as sub floor, so make sure you choose the right length so your joins are staggered every second board. The secret nail, is nailed thru the toungue side, so make sure your starting board that is 10mm from the wall(and super straight when fastened) has its groove side facing the wall. Ok now to the calculation of lineal metres needed. The formula is area divided by coverage (coverage is not total width from tongue to side edge). This formula gives you a lineal metres measurement now add 4% waste (*4%), now multiply this by the cost per/mtr your paying for the material. Now youve got a cost of your floor boards plus 4% waste. (this is right as long as you have calculated the area of the rooms and hallway) Hope this answers your question, If not email me: zacdrinky@hotmail.com

    Hi Anne
    I would normally charge £25 per square metre for the flooring which would work out around £1000 for the job altogether.
