Solid Teak Flooring
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. Any source of damp must be rectified prior to installation of floor and moisture levels
in rooms fitted with wood should be maintained at a stable level, in line with normal living conditions. All
construction dampness must be completely dry.
It is important that you check each plank for any manufacturing defects. The boards in this pack are
random lengths and should be laid at random across the floor to create the best effect. It is advisable to
open a few packs at a time to mix boards from each pack as they are installed.
Before You Start
• Calculate the total square meterage of the room/s and add 10% for cutting and wastage.
• The wood boards should be placed in the room in which they are to be fitted to acclimatise for 48 hours
and should be stacked, in their packaging, carefully to allow air to circulate. The boards should be stored
and laid in a relative humidity of between 45% - 65% and a room temperature of between 18C and 20C.
Solid wood flooring is a natural product which will mature with age. Each board is unique in designs as
nature intended. The boards will change shade over time as a reaction through exposure to sunlight.
• All substrates must be structurally sound, flat and dry. The surface should be free of all contaminants
and loose material. All possibilities of damp e.g. walls, drains, damp proof courses, plumbing, fridges,
washing machines etc. MUST be thoroughly checked and repaired if found to be leaking.
• The boards should be fitted lengthways towards the main incoming light source and, where possible,
down the length of the room.
If installing onto a concrete or screed base
• In good drying conditions allow one day per 1mm of new screed / concrete to
