Tips for installing bamboo flooring

If you are going to install Bambus Parkett in your home, this following post will be helpful.

It looks like wood. It feels like wood. It is even cut like wood. But let’s clarify something about bamboo: it is not wood, which means that it has to have a slightly different installation process. Here are some tips for installing Woven Parkettboden.

– Let’s start with the hues. Because bamboo is a natural product, it offers a variety of shade combinations. So when you install it, you should keep several boxes of the product on hand to mix colors.

– Also, make sure you have at least 5% more bamboo strips than you expect to use. This will allow you to make corrections in the event of factory defects, such as finishing or cutting errors. That 5% is the industry standard for these types of problems.

– Check the bamboo strips before you start installing Bambus Terrassendielen to make sure you have all the material you need. There are no refunds or strips can be returned once they have been installed.

– As a general comment, you cannot install bamboo flooring in areas that have not been properly heated to wet conditions. The recommended weatherization time is at least 7 days.

– Scatter the floor as much as you can. If you can’t, form smaller piles, break the boxes, and open the ends. Before placing any strip, take a couple of pieces at random and check their moisture content.

– Gypsum joints must be ready and dry, and concrete work must have been done at least 45 days before installation.
– The heating system must be working. Make sure the building you are working in is up to 70 ° F for at least seven days before installing Bambusfurnier.

– Check the relative humidity of the building. It should be between 40 and 45 percent, while the humidity of the plywood (subfloor) should not exceed 12 percent.

– A vapor barrier or felt paper should be placed between the subfloor and the strips to help keep the moisture content of the floor more stable.

– The thickness of the subfloor (plywood) must be at least 3/4 of an inch. Do not use chipboard or plywood panels for underlayment.
– Make sure the plywood is properly secured to the joists to prevent squeaks. Use a sander to correct any slight irregularities.

Important: Remember to insert all nails and screws properly into the subfloor, use of 15 gauge nails or staples with a minimum length of 1¼ inch is recommended to secure the floor.
