Engineered wood floors are suitable for all rooms other than those that are subject to excessive moisture and high levels of humidity.
All wood is hydroscopic (it will react to the moisture in the environment) and as a result will expand or contract accordingly. All sources of moisture must be rectified prior to the installation of the ¬floor, and moisture levels in rooms fitted with wood flooring should be maintained at a stable level, in line with normal living conditions. Any construction dampness must be completely dry.
It is important that you check each plank for any manufacturing defects. Any faults must be reported back to the store of purchase for an immediate refund or replacement prior to the flooring being installed. The boards in this pack are of random lengths and should be laid randomly across the floor to create the best effect. It is advisable to open a few cartons at a time to mix boards from each pack as they are installed.

II. Installation Methods
There are a number of methods for installing wood floors, floating, gluing or stapling. Apart from where specified in the following sections, most existing floor finishes e.g. lino, carpet etc., should be removed prior to installation of your new wood floor. (note – do not try to remove old vinyl as it may contain asbestos. If in doubt, contact a professional flooring contractor for guidance).
Please note: If your room wider than 6 meters (19.7ft), we recommend to split installation in two for expansion gap. The expansion gap can be hidden with a T-molding.
