How to lay laminate on wooden floor

After leveling the floor and cleaning it from debris, a springy damping tape is laid to damp sounds along the walls. So that the seams of the substrate do not fall on the joints of the boards, sheets or roll substrate roll out across the floor across the direction of the laminate lamellas.

It fits only the smooth side up and is interconnected end to end, without overlap. To avoid shearing the substrate, all sheets are fastened together with building tape. If the damper tape is not used, you can put the edges of the substrate a little to the wall a couple of centimeters. In the future, the excess is cut off. In order not to crush the porous material while walking, it is not recommended to lay the entire substrate at once – it is better to lay it out as needed.

The timber is fastened with a section of 100×100 mm on the crown strictly along the perimeter of the structure. On the middle beam strapping is not performed. After mounting the bottom trim, a 50 mm step should appear along the entire inner edge of the base.

Setting lag on the floor

For a log, a 50×100 mm bar is needed; they are mounted with its edge downwards, onto 3 longitudinal beams of the crown, and inserted into the cuts with a size of 30 mm in the bottom trim. Step taken 60 cm.

The arrangement of the subfloor

An optional step that extends the life of the dog house and slightly warms it. The gaps between the pillars around the perimeter overlap with heavy permeable material (debris, for example), and the floor itself is covered with clay with clay from sand to lag.

Before further final fixing, the racks are leveled with the help of level and temporary bilateral rail braces. (more…)

Often ribbed floors are well suited for homes with a complex configuration and walls of lightweight concrete.

The structure is a prefabricated structure consisting of steel trusses and hollow blocks, which can be erected without the use of formwork and attracting loading and unloading equipment, blocking spans up to 8 meters.

The overlap also has good performance in sound and heat conductivity. In general, using this technology can save up to 30 percent.

When installing a often-ribbed ceiling, you should also pay attention to the length of the support of steel beams, it should be not less than 120 millimeters.

If the span has a length of more than four and a half meters, then it is necessary to arrange separation edges between the rows of beams. Their size is set in the range from 70 to 100 millimeters, reinforced and poured with concrete, after substituting supports for them. (more…)
