One of the last stages of the overhaul of the apartment is the laying of floor coverings, the type of which had to be determined even before the start of repair and finishing work. It is very important to have an idea about which room, which coating will be laid before the repair. This information is essential for a good flooring preparation.
There are several types of coatings that differ in structure, density, thickness, etc. These parameters must be taken into account when preparing the floor.
Preparing the floor for laying floor coverings involves leveling the plane and level of the floor for a certain type of flooring. Given this parameter, it is possible to achieve a single floor plane in the apartment, regardless of the type of flooring. But floor preparation should take into account not only the thickness of the flooring, but also the material from which it is made.
So for laying linoleum, floor preparation should be carried out using fine-grained mixtures to obtain the smoothest possible surface.
To prepare the floor for laying laminate, it is enough to use conventional floor screed mixtures.
The laying of parquet boards is carried out in two ways – floating and fixed. In the first case, it is enough to prepare for laying the laminate, in the second, sheets of plywood are mounted on the screed, on which a parquet board is laid with glue.
