Checks before installation
DO NOT INSTALL THE WOODEN FLOOR IF FIXTURES ARE NOT INSTALLED
Before installation make sure that the rooms are suitable, closed and the plaster is perfectly dry. The room temperature has to be not less than 16° C (ideal 18/22° C), the relative humidity between 45% and 60% during and after the installation to ensure the good maintenance of the parquet over time. It is advisable to always contact specialized personnel for installation, especially on floors with radiant panel heating. Before installing the wooden floor it is important to check that a vapor barrier between the regularization layer and the thermal insulation layer has been installed and to verify that the screed minimum thickness is 6 cm, at least 3 cm of which above the pipes.
It is essential that the screed is well leveled (maximum tolerance of flatness 5 mm measured with a 2 meter long ruler), humidity must not exceed 2% by weight and humidity spots must not be present.
Before starting the installation there are minimum drying times to be observed according to the different types of screed: 21 days for concrete screeds; 7 days for the anhydride screeds; 3-4 days for fast drying screeds (always follow the instructions of the respective manufacturers).
it will be the installer’s responsibility to identify the most suitable adhesive after identifying the characteristics and conditions examined in the points above. In order to avoid compromising the finish paint DO NOT use alcohol or aggressive solvents to remove glue stains from the parquet. We recommend testing before using any product on it. Perform the removal when the adhesive is fresh. Leave adequate perimeter expansion space.
leave adequate space for perimeter expansion and avoid loading with heavy weights. The harmonious and definitive appearance of the flooring also depends on the experience of the installer in mixing the boards before installation. Conditions of the substrate and the laying processes affect the stability and aesthetics of the parquet.
