Home Living : February 21st 2012
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, February 21, 2012 MB FLOATING FLOOR Luke Van Dyck LUKE says ... A floating floor is made up of a timber veneer layer on either a plywood or backing board. It comes pre-finished, boxed in set lengths. It has a clip-lock system that you simply clip together. It is easy to carry and sold per square metre. The more expensive boards have a thicker layer or a real hardwood timber veneer which can be sanded. They also have a stable plywood base. This sys- tem is very easy to install. Because it is pre-finished you can walk on it as soon as it's installed. You will also need an under- lay for the boards to sit on. The best underlays have an acoustic rating. It can go over a concrete slab making it a popular choice in apartments. The surface should be dead level for this system to work. If it's not the floating floor will not sit properly and will bounce or flex and unclip when you walk on it, causing damage. FLOORING DON'T GET FLOORED CHOOSE TIMBER: IT'S ONLY NATURAL Solid hardwood floorboards are a favourite of celebrity television presenter, builder and author Luke Van Dyck. Janita Singh TWO common types of sub-floor structures for Australian homes are concrete slab and timber- framed joist and bearers con- struction. Celebrity television presen- ter, builder and author, Luke Van Dyck, talks about how proper flooring can either make or break a home's feel and appeal, and ways to choose wisely in his new book Home Maintenance. ''The size of your family and lifestyle you want will be factors in deciding floor surface,'' he says. Then family allergies, pets, appeal in the room, wear and tear will all help in your decision-making process. Van Dyck, a third generation builder and in the trade for a decade, says his favourite is solid hardwood flooring. ''There are many varieties to choose from so you can really tailor the colour and look that you desire,'' he said. ''As timber is a natural prod- uct, I recommend you get it delivered to site two weeks prior to the installation. This will allow the timber to ac- climatise and get the exact site- specific humidity content.
