Cement Screeding Moisture Control: Critical for Solid Wood Flooring InstallationBack
When it comes to installing solid wood flooring, the often-overlooked hero of the process is the wooden batten system. These battens provide crucial support, ensuring the longevity and performance of your solid wood flooring. Here's why the wooden batten system is of paramount importance in the installation of solid wood flooring:
Wooden battens serve as the backbone of your flooring installation. They provide the necessary structural support that ensures the floor remains level and stable over time.
Even Load Distribution:
Properly installed wooden battens help distribute the load evenly across the subfloor. This even distribution prevents issues such as sagging and uneven wear, ensuring your flooring's integrity.
The batten system allows for airflow between the subfloor and the solid wood flooring, reducing the risk of moisture-related problems like cupping or warping.
In the Malaysian climate, where humidity and temperature can fluctuate significantly, using durable wood species for your battens, such as Chengal, becomes even more important. These wood species offer resistance to termites and ensure the longevity of your flooring system. Choosing the right wooden batten system is essential to a successful and long-lasting solid wood flooring installation. At Hengwood, we understand the significance of this often overlooked aspect and ensure that the best system is used for your solid wood flooring.Back
