Essential materials for your floor

Posted on: June 1st, 2022 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

Is important that you correctly choose the construction materials for your floor

The remodeling of the floors is a decisive moment for any home; as it is a change that makes the environment more vital and the space looks completely renovated. That is why it is important that you correctly choose the construction materials that will be part of this project.

In this article we show you what are the remodeling materials that cannot be missing when remodeling your floors.

This is hands down #1 on your flooring remodeling checklist.

Choose the floor according to the space you plan to remodel and determine the amount of material you need according to the square meters it measures.

To calculate the square meters you only have to multiply side by side of the space you are going to remodel.

For example, if your room is 5 m long by 3 m wide, then 5 x 3 = 15, your room is 15 m2. We recommend that you buy 15% more material than your space measures; in this case, for a space of 15 m2; the ideal is that you buy 17.5 m2 of ceramic or porcelain, as the case may be.

Without the glue, nothing would be possible; since it is the material that is used in the first place for the remodeling of your floors.

There are different brands of glue on the market, however to choose the ideal one you must take into account that it is low in powder (which is beneficial for the health of the person in charge of the work and the people who are at home at the time of the remodeling ), that is ready to use and has a good consistency to work more easily.

The grout or grout is the material seen between each tile, popularly known as joints. This material is essential for the remodeling project of your floors and ideally; when choosing it, the grout or grout has a tone that is closest to the color of your tiles.

It is important that you make sure you choose the best grout or grout; since the joints are visible and become part of the design and the final result of the remodeling of your home.

This material gives the final touch to the remodeling of your floors. A final construction cleaner is used once the tiles are installed and is intended to remove residue and debris left on the floors so that the newly completed work remains sparkling.

Floating a floor over existing floors

Posted on: May 7th, 2018 by wfp_admin No Comments

On this conversation we will be talking about floating a new floor over the existing floor, the pros and the cons. On the last blog we talked about the pros and cons of installing an engineered floor over the existing floor; but in this conversation I want to cover some details that may save you from some headaches installing a floating floor over the existing floor.


Number one; you must make sure that the existing floor is properly hooked to the subfloor or concrete substrate; If not, take your time to review the existing floor and solve all the problems of the vulnerable and loose areas to avoid as much movement and noise as possible.

If it is a parquet that exists; Take your time to review each tile and make sure the tile is securely fastened to the subfloor or substrate.

When floating on a floor, most manufacturers do not recommend installing in the rooms without installing a transition piece on the door; This type of restriction is a bit of a detour for me.

Secondly; they do not recommend installing any cabinet or built-in accessories on a floating floor; so first I would have to install cabinets in their built-in accessories and then install the floor up to the cabinet or the built-in accessories; and it may require a small molding depending on how tight the floor installer can reach the cabinets.

Also, keep in mind that most manufacturers only give 1/8 “of tolerance to irregularity; So what that means is that your existing floor should be fairly uniform and flat; and in my opinion; Most of the time, 1/8 “of an inch is impossible.

Now for a couple of professionals; It will save you some money by not having to remove the existing floor where it can be expensive; and second, it can be less expensive to install a floating floor because you will not need the expensive adhesives that would be needed to install an engineered floor; but keep in mind that you will still need a lower layer to place under your floor; but, only in most cases. In cases it is still less expensive.

I always advised to read the instructions and the guidelines that the manufacturer of floors provides in each box; it’s extremely important, it’s more important than getting the information on the Internet or anywhere else; even if the information is 100% correct.

Installing an engineered floor over the existing engineered floor

We have always been asked, “Can I install wood floors designed on my existing wood floors”? And our first answer to this question; what we would always say, is: “follow the guidelines and instructions of the manufacturer”.

 However, with our experience of more than 30 years; We have some nuggets of wisdom in this area.

Situations to discuss to Installing:

The number one is that; we always recommend that existing wood floors be removed and that you start with a clean slate if the budget allows; the reason is or, if I must say, the reason is that it is number one; you have to make sure that the existing floor is securely fastened to the concrete substrate or the plywood sub-floor.

We are not talking about installing on vinyl flooring; vinyl or PVC cork, (that will be a different discussion), but most likely if the floor has been there for a prolonged period of time; there has been some vulnerability in the stability of the adherence to the subfloor and the existing floor; whether the existing adhesive starts to fail; or simply the nails of the existing floor begin to loosen.

We never really know the extent of this vulnerability to 100%, therefore; if your new installation is installed on one of these scenarios; There are likely to be problems with your new floor in the future.

Another reason why it is not desirable to install a new floor on the existing floor is due to the contraction and expansion; your new floor will expand and contract according to the existing floor (again, this is one of our multiple experiences in the last three years). decades The best solution for this situation is to install a rubber subfloor or a subfloor subfloor on the existing floor for its new installation.

There are other factors that we can discuss about the situation; but we will go for the next discussion. For more information and inquiries, contact Wood Floor Planet Inc. at 212-252-3838 or 201-330-0909.
