Smoothing and Levelling Compounds
Subfloor preparation is key
I can not over emphasise the importance of correct and thorough subfloor preparation especially when using commercial vinyl (safety flooring).
Our market demands floor coverings that are more and more decorative. Many commercial vinyl products mimic natural materials such as marble or timber and the effect is completely lost if the subfloor looks like the North Sea, or if every joint in the boards beneath clearly show through.
At DCS Flooring we only the most trusted manufactures of smoothing and levelling compounds which include F.Balls, Mapei and Ardex.
All of our fitters are very experienced in all aspects of our work and installing smoothing and levelling compounds is no different.
If a levelling compound is to be used, getting the right one for the job is essential, but just as important is the correct mixing ratio of powder to liquid, and applying it the manufacturers recommended thickness as all three greatly affect the hardness of the cured product.
At DCS Flooring our attention to detail sets us apart from the rest.
We will provide a damp test on our first inspection of the floor if we feel that it is necessary.
We have a large portfolio of work using smoothing and levelling compounds in leicestershire and the East Midlands.
