Stages of installation of Floating Floor - Wider Gold Coast

Sub-floor inspection


The flooring technician will carefully inspect your sub-floor to determine the level of preparation needed to install your new floating floor. The condition of your sub-floor plays a very important role in the final outcome of the new flooring installation. Sub-floor preparation is absolutely crucial in obtaining a beautiful, even and stable timber or laminate floor as well as retaining manufactures warranty on all flooring products. Flooring installed on substandard sub-floors will void manufactures warranty.

Our flooring technician on the Gold Coast will provide you with a post inspection report and advise you on the spot about the level of sub-floor preparation needed and the costs involved. You will know in advance all the costs of your new floating floor project. There are no hidden costs.

Subfloor levelling


We will prepare your sub-floor to be suitable for installation of your new floating floor according to Australian and Manufacture’s standards. Timber and Laminate Floating Floor can be installed over any hard, stable and even surfers including Tiles and Vinyl.

Any uneven parts of concrete sub-floors may need to be grind off using our dustless concrete grinding system (99% dust free) or filled with special fast-drying levelling compound for concrete.

Timber or particleboard sub-floors may need to be sanded back using dustless floor sander or plainer, or any void filled with special fast-drying levelling compound for timber products. 

We know from experiance that very few flooring installers on the Gold Coast offer customers sub-floor levelling without subcontracting this process to a third party. Completing all stages of floating floor installation by us, will save you money as well as ensures job well done without the blame-game.

Removal of old floor coverings


We can remove old floor coverings like carpet, vinyl or tiles. If after removal there is a difference in levels in some areas, we can  make them all the same level by filling them, or install transition trims between different levels, whichever you prefer. We will explain to you all possible options before we start.   

Direction of installation and expansion joints


We will advise you and consult with you in regard to laying direction and any possible expansion joints needed. Laying direction (along or across the room) plays an important part in the visual effect of your new floor. Expansion joints are sometimes necessary(humid climate on the Gold Coast and throughout south east Qld) depending on the size of the area, layout of the room, flooring type used, length of boards, width of boards, sources of light. Our flooring technician will advise you about the possible expansion joints needed in advance before installation.

Timber doorjambs


We will undercut all timber doorjambs and architraves so we can insert flooring underneath during installation for a professional finish.

Skirting boards


We can remove and reposition your existing skirting boards, or supply and install new once, or leave them in place and supply Scotia (quad beading) for a nice and neat finish on the perimeter of your new floor – according to your wishes. Our flooring technician will advise you on the best solution for your floor.

Finishing touches


We will vacuum your new floor with our industrial strength vac. Your new floating floor is ready to walk on immediately after installation.
