The timber is delivered on site by truck and carried into the house. It is aclimatised
in situ for the timber moisture content to stablise. Two methods of installation are
- Direct stick to the concrete slab. Here the concrete slab is waterproofed by the
use of a chemical barrier. This a chemical is applied to the slab by a roller. Upon
it drying the floorboards are then are glued to the slab. Once the glue has after
about a week, the timber is sanded and polished. In polishing, usually one coat of
timber sealer is first applied and upon it drying, the floor is lightly sanded.
Then a coat of laquer is applied with a roller and upon it drying the floor is lightly
sanded again, and then a second and final coat of laquer is applied and left to dry.
- The second method, and more widely followed than the first, involves waterproofing
the concrete slab as in the first method, or alternatively using a film of
builders plastic to cover the entire slab, and then covering the slab with an A-grade
plywood (waterproof) and affixing this pywood to the slab wwith steel anchors every
150 mm intervals. The timber floorboards are then secret-nailed to this plywood.
The floor is then sanded and polished as in the above.
