Providing the flooring market with quality, innovative subfloor preparation materials

PROFESSIONAL flooring contractors, Elvet Flooring Solutions, has made a homeowner’s dream come true after installing 40sq m of luxury vinyl flooring at their property using UltraFloor’s expert subfloor preparation materials.

As part of their extensive home renovations, a homeowner in Durham dreamed of installing beautiful Tarkett Mini Plank flooring throughout their hallway and kitchen – the perfect finishing touch to their modern and luxurious home.

The challenge
The 40sqm area is the main thoroughfare from front door to garden and so the floor needed to be smooth and bump-free to keep the family, and dog, safe. It was also important the flooring was installed speedily so as not to delay the rest of the renovations.

The solution
UltraFloor says it has a reputation for providing the flooring market with quality, innovative subfloor preparation materials.

For this project Elvet Flooring Solutions first secured 5.5mm FG1 plywood across the entire area, then primed the surface using Prime IT Multi-surface Primer.

Says UltraFloor: ‘Formulated to promote the adhesion to all UltraFloor smoothing underlayments, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer reduces pinholing, minimising the risk of costly failures. With a coverage rate of 200sq m at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.’

Once cured, Level IT Renovate was applied at a 5mm depth and left for three days before the LVT flooring was installed in a herringbone design.

The company continues: ‘Developed for the renovation of existing floors, Level IT Renovate is fibre reinforced for added strength and to minimise the risk of hairline cracks – reducing a common cause of failure. Suitable for deep applications from 3-40mm, Level IT Renovate is multi-purpose for extensive use and boasts excellent flow properties, making this flexible and versatile floor-leveller suitable for a wide range of flooring substrates.

‘What’s more, Level IT Renovate can also be used externally, as a light wearing surface, can be walked on in as little as between 2-2.5 hours and can receive floorcoverings in just four hours.’

The company concludes: ‘The flooring took just four days to install from start-to-finish and the homeowner is now enjoying their beautiful new kitchen living area.’

On the performance of Level IT Renovate, Matt Williams owner of Elvet Flooring Solutions, commented: ‘The flow rate was very impressive and easy to work with. Perfect smooth finish ready for the LVT.’
