In addition, has many more advantages, is a natural material, it is healthy... The Solid Wood Flooring is a floor which is distinguished for its size, especially by its length . Built by wooden boards parallelepiped shape united longitudinally joints samblagem (tongue and groove system), uniform thickness and flat profile. Wood Floor characteristics: Our Company, A.Barbosa sells its solid Wood floors with a percentage of average moisture of 12% , with the balance timber for air relative moisture ranging from 50% to 70 %. But could sell with other moisture as requested by the cliente. Dimensions: Dimensions Standard Thickness (mm) * dimensions variable according to species of wood Installation: Preparation: Before laying the hardwood boards on grade or in very humid rooms, we recommend you install a moisture barrier underneath the boards (across the concrete slabs). We recommend pre-treatment of the boards (sealing) to guarantee timber smoothness. Hardwood board fitting Traditional fitting (Nailed boards) The hardwood boards are nailed to the plank subfloor over the concrete slabs, thus leaving crawl spaces underneath. Gluing system (Glued boards) Hardwood boards are glued directly over the subfloor (no crawl spaces). In this system the boards should not be over 1.20 m long. Traditional fitting system – Nailed boards 1. The joists can be laid either across or embedded between the concrete slabs, the latter providing increased sound insulation. If you choose to fit the wood joists across the slabs, fill empty areas with loose-fill cork particles or rockwool. Cover the joists with polyethylene film, which is essential to divert moisture away from the structure. 2. Lay the wood boards diagonally across the joists (covered with polyethylene film). Join the boards and nail them to the joists. Note: A gap between the wall and the first and last board is needed for expansion, and will be hidden by the skirting. 3. Nails should be driven into the tongue of the boards and counter sunk (secret nail fixing). 4. Once the boards are tightly nailed, apply filler to the whole surface. 5. Smooth the floor with fine sandpaper. 6. Sweep/vacuum the floor clean. 7. Use a primer to seal the wood. 8. After the primer has dried, smooth it with fine sandpaper. 9. Sweep/vacuum all primer particles after sanding. 10. Finish the wood floor by applying at least two coats of lacquer. Remember to sand between each coat. We recommend that you allow the wood floor to acclimate before fitting the skirting, which should be carried out only after the floor is inspected again for gaps between the boards and the wall. Floor Care and Maintenance Remember, like any floor covering, our wood floors will show signs of wear over time, depending on the size and lifestyle of your family. By observing a few precautions and setting up a regular cleaning routine and maintenance program, you can expect years of beauty from your floor.
