Havwoods’ Academy accredited installers
Fitting a wood floor is a highly skilled and specialised task. Site conditions are important and the subfloor is crucial, as are temperature and humidity. Planks may be installed floating over a subfloor, bonded or nailed down to the subfloor depending upon the chosen timber; chevron and herringbone patterns are even more complex, as are stairs. Then, of course, there’s the importance of protecting the floor whilst others are working on site, professional cleaning and maintenance programmes. All these elements are covered in three individual training courses, aimed at experienced fitters.
