How to Install Wooden Floor


The wooden floor can be a “1” board, tufted, tongue and groove, or an ax. The place should be placed diagonally and nailed well, with two eight-cent nails on each bearing on the block, with three nails at each end. From each part, care must be taken to see that two consecutive joints do not occur on the same beam. Two boards must cross the beam between the joints.

The board should be cut at an angle of 45 ° where the joints meet on the beam. The practice of some cheap builders lets the ends of squares together on top of the leaf beams too many boards without pads at the ends.

The wooden floor is placed diagonally to hold the building and make it easier to lay the final floor. You can run the floor finish in a good way in a room harga plywood near the top at one end and to the adjacent beam at the bottom end. Another similar piece is placed next to the first, just running in the opposite direction so that he cuts the first piece.

To cut the pattern to bridge, lay a piece of folding beam and mark on it the location of two adjacent beams and a picture of the position of the clamp.

Usually, if there is room to descend under the floor, the lower end of the bridge is not nailed until the lower floor is laid. Just put bridging in place and nail the top end. Often nails start in bridging while someone is working on a work bench. Then they can be easily moved after bridging in place.

If you can not get under the floor, put the bridging in place and nail the top end; Then place the board on the beam and tack on where the floor is diagonal, but where the floor is in the right corner with the beam, the end floor can not be run parallel to the floor below it, and this often results in Must run the finish floor in a short way room that does not give the appearance Fun.

New plywood is being used for wooden flooring. It goes down quickly and keeps the floor level if you are careful enough within the distance between the floor blocks. Uneven patches will make it very difficult to adjust the plywood, but the board does not require such constriction in spacing. The plywood should be nailed at intervals of 6 “along the edges and at intervals of 12” on all other bearings.

Plywood has the advantage that linoleum, carpets, and other floor coverings can be placed directly on top of it without the need to use the final floor, which is usually a requirement where ordinary boards are used as sub floors.

Under F.H.A. Financing and some other types, the final floor is often needed, even under the carpet from wall to wall, with the theory that the carpet will be obsolete before the mortgage is paid off. It seems unnecessary costs, but it would be better to make sure what is needed before going ahead with any part of the building.

One precaution is required, make sure not to let the plywood floor get too wet when you are plastered. This may be covered with “tar paper” by stucco surgery, or you can take special precautions in using water so that it is slightly warmed on the floor. If you use dry wall construction, this will not be a problem. The plaster should be cleaned, as if left to harden on the floor, almost impossible to remove.
