Basically, is this a job for a competent DIYer (me) with a good selection of tools available? I have a levelled and prepared concrete subfloor divided between 2 areas - one is about 9sqm and the other about 33sqm with no particularly complicated shapes to navigate. Ordinary central heating i.e. not underfloor. I have 48sqm of lovely hand scraped pre-finished, end matched oak plank flooring - 125mm wide x random lengths 300 -1000mm (i.e. nothing too long) fully aclimatised to the room and one floor fitter who has just decided to vanish on a 3 week holiday. Cheers! :shock:
I know he was going to glue the boards down to the subfloor but was due to bring the adhesives and finishings with him, so I don't know what he was planning to use.
So, my questions are: 1. has anybody done this sort of job and wished they hadn't/found it OK/actually quite easy etc? 2. Are there any favourite/tried and tested (flexible?) adhesives that can be recommended? 3. Are there any big tips that anyone has to offer?
