INSTALLATION

DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN INSTALLERS?

Yes. Nordic Homeworx highly qualified and Kährs-certified installation team is always happy to assist and ensure the service is to your full satisfaction.

DO I NEED TO LEAVE AN EXPANSION GAP WITH ENGINEERED FLOORING?

Yes, as with all wood flooring you will need to leave an expansion gap. This applies whenever the floor meets another fixed surface (wall, doorways, other flooring such as tiles/marble, pipes, etc). When installing engineered floors over large areas you should also have an expansion gap of 10-15 mm every 12 metres for the width, as the floor moves 20-40 times more widthwise than lengthwise. This can be covered with expansion profiles. If you are fully gluing an engineered floor to the subfloor, then you only need to allow for approximately 3-5 mm expansion gap.

WHAT IS THE BEST LAYING DIRECTION?

From a technical point of view, any direction is possible and you can install the planks lengthwise or widthwise. You can even install the floor diagonally, however keeping in mind that the wastage percentage would increase significantly. The choice is a personal as well as an aesthetic one. You will obtain the most attractive effect if you lay the floor in the same direction as the main light source and in the same line as the most frequently used door entrance. However, if you have several doors and windows in the room you can choose the direction that facilitates the actual laying.

I HAVE AN EXISTING TILE SKIRTING, DO I NEED TO REMOVE IT?

No. Nordic Homeworx is able to provide you with a customized skirting which is fitted nicely on top of the existing tile skirting, covering it. The skirting will of course be in a matching colour and finish as your chosen wooden flooring. Feel free to visit our showroom where we can show you samples.

WHICH IS THE BEST SKIRTING AND MOULDING FOR MY PREMISES?

The final touch is very important. It is in details that you can recognize the level, skill and craftsmanship that goes into a floor made by Kährs and installed by Nordic Homeworx. You can choose from a wide range of mouldings and accessories, each designed to the perfect touch.

 

Rest assured that Nordic Homeworx will provide you with all required details once the site has been visited and surveyed, and you will receive accessories in a matching finish as your chosen wooden flooring to ensure excellent final results.

CAN I LAY THE FLOOR DIRECTLY ON A MARBLE OR TILE SURFACE?

Yes. Firstly we will conduct a site survey where we ensure the marble, tile or concrete surface is leveled appropriately. Our floors are installed floating on top of the existing flooring. The boards are locked together with Kährs patented Woodloc® system. The Woodloc® does not just mean that the floor can be installed quickly and efficiently, but it also guarantees that the floor stays flat and that gaps will never appear between the planks. The fact is that the Woodloc® joint retains its strength throughout the floor’s entire lifetime.

DO I NEED TO HAVE UNDERLAY?

Yes, the underlay will provide the floor with a humidity barrier from the subfloor, as well as act as a sound insulator.

WHAT SHOULD THE NORMAL ROOM TEMPERATURE BE DURING AND AFTER INSTALLATION?

We recommend to maintain a normal room temperature between 18°C and 24°C. The relative humidity of the air must kept at less than 60% before, during and after installation.
