Amtico Signature Vinyl Tile installation in Lightwater, Surrey

Location: Lightwater, Surrey

This particular project was very rewarding as the specification for sub-floor preparation was quite complex due to underfloor heating in the Kitchen. We were asked to supply and fit Amtico Signature, American Oak, wood block, Herringbone design with two block border to the kitchen, where under floor heating was used. To compliment this we installed Amtico Signature, Antique Oak, wood block, Herringbone design with an Art deco border in the dining room.

The sub-floor preparation work to the dining room was a straightforward 3mm skim of smoothing compound over the original concrete floor. Once the sub-floor was dry we commenced laying the floor. The eye catching art deco border created a fantastic finish to a very sophisticated dining area.

The kitchen provided more of a challenge. The customer installed an Warm board under floor heating system. This consisted of high-density dry screed boards. Once the boards were secured to the sub-floor we applied a thick 10mm covering of flexible reinforced fibre smoothing compound.

The Amtico Vinyl Tiles had to be a minimum of 10mm away from the under floor heating to avoid discolouration. Once the smoothing compound had cured we worked on installing the wood block design. Amtico Luxury vinyl tiles are great alternative to real wood block flooring, especially in a kitchen where the floor requires constant cleaning and can susceptible to moisture.

The end result produced a fantastic finish and a very satisfied customer.
