Polyflor Camaro Loc flooring fitted in March, Cambridgeshire.
AW Flooring was asked to supply and fit new flooring to a lounge, hallway, kitchen and WC for Jon and Clare P from March, they wanted something hard wearing easy to maintain and as pain free for the installation as possible, they are living in the house with their dalmatian so the less hassle the better.
After going thorough the various flooring options on offer they decided on Polyflor Camaro Loc Hickory Oak, they like the idea of luxury vinyl tiles over a laminate flooring because of the durability they offer and being able to wash the floor thoroughly without the fear of water damage that is present with laminates.
Their major concern with traditional stick down luxury vinyl tiles was the practicalities of the floor preparation needed before the installation, all old floor coverings would need to be removed, furniture emptied, before a self levelling screed was laid this alone would cause a major disruption in a lived in household and then the flooring still needs to be fitted.
In comes Polyflor Camaro Loc, a 4mm thick luxury vinyl tile with a loc system allowing the floor to be loose laid dry without the need for adhesives or a full screed of the floor area, Camaro loc can be fitted directly to any level solid sub floor including in their case an existing fully adhered cushion floor vinyl in the kitchen which saved them a large amount of time and cost in preparing the sub floor.
First off we had to remove the old floor coverings, carpet underlay and gripper in the lounge and hallway, loose laid vinyl over the top of stuck down vinyl in the kitchen, the floors were in very good condition leaving very little prep work other than a sweep and a good vacuum to remove the dust and debris, this is repeated during the installation of the floor to make sure nothing gets under the new flooring.
Being loose laid Polyflor Camaro Loc requires a 4mm expansion gap leaving around the perimeter of the room and door frames are undercut in a similar way to wooden and laminate floors but once installation starts it’s fairly quick to cover the main areas of the rooms and the ability to fit sections of the room and move furniture over and continue with the next section makes it a very hassle free way to fit flooring to a lived in home.
Finally once all the flooring has been fitted we install a 6mm edge strip to cover the expansion gap, this gives a very neat finish to the flooring and blends beautifully with the existing skirting boards.
After a final clear up and vacuum that’s it! another job done and another happy customer.
Polyflor Camaro Loc starts at £32.00 per sq metre fully installed please contact us for more details and our home selection service.
