Postby Gary.B » Mon Oct 13, 2008 3:39 pm

I have screeded half of my extention to accept cerramic tiles, now the wife has changed her mind and wants wooden floor boards! ( TYPICAL!!) :x

Apart from the height diffence can I lay floor boards ontop of screed or does it need opposing battening?

Thank you in advance.

I have screwed battens to the floor in my cottage and then nailed oak floorboards to them. I don't think laying ordinary floorboards directly is a good idea. You could fit the real wood flooring which clips together as a floating floor.

Yes you can lay floorboards to a screeded floor.

We run a company that specialises in flooring for this purpose.

Not sure if I can post the web address here.

If I can or any moderators can let me know?

The only requirement is that the screed is level and dry and the room conditions are ready to accept the floor. ie has all the plastering been completed?

Let me know if I can post the reply

Thanks
