Subfloor Preparation in Stafford and Staffordshire

E L Flooring Limited recognises that inadequate or improper preparation can cause unexpected additional costs and premature failure to any flooring.

Preparing the subfloor correctly is essential before installing your new floor.

We will remove your old floor covering and dispose of it correctly. When the subfloor is 100% visible we can conclude whether the floor boards or concrete is in a good condition or needs attention. Correctly prepared subfloors will be clean, dry, level and structurally stable, these are all characteristics that will help ensure a long lasting floor.

We make sure the subfloor is as clean as possible. Spilled paint, adhesives, other coatings, dust and debris can ruin the flooring installation.

If we glue your flooring down, we sand away any coatings of paint or adhesive and vacuum the dust away.

If we use the nail down method/floating or locking system, we simply use a vacuum to remove all dust and dirt.

We ensure that your subfloor is as level as possible. We check the levelness of the subfloor in multiply areas and in multiply directions. Any discrepancy in heights can be resolved with the correct levelling compound.

We check the moisture level of the subfloor with our moister test kit. Excess moisture level in the subfloor can cause hardwood floors to warp and cup, while excessively dry subfloors can lead to cracked, creaky floors. We apply surface damp-proof membrane if necessary.

Once your subfloor is clean, level and dry, we start the installation process of your flooring.

We are a reliable service provider of Stafford and surrounding areas. We always ensure every aspect is done to high standard.

James just laid some flooring for us and did a splendid job. We always use local tradesmen if we can and I would recommend E L Flooring to anyone who requires a totally professional service. James gave us a date to carry out the work and stuck to it and to the price quoted. He is highly proficient and won’t leave until the job is finished entirely to his and your own complete satisfaction.

E L Flooring have prepared the flooring and seamlessly laid engineered oak panels to our lounge, dining room and hall. They have then fitted new skirting boards throughout this new wooded area, trimmed doors to ensure all close perfectly. A very clean job, all completed in two and a half days. Absolutely no qualms about recommending this company. Thank you. EL Flooring.
