We recently completed a job in Carmunnock, near Glasgow, where we were asked to replace existing Karndean in a large Hallway, Lounge and three rooms. The previous floor-covering had been inherited by our customers and wasn’t exactly the best Karndean installation we have ever seen!
We began to remove the previous floor and discovered that the preparation work had not been carried out correctly. It had not been primed prior to applying the smoothing compound, and it had therefore ‘failed’ and was very loose. For some smoothing compounds, priming must be done beforehand.
We had to ‘pull out all the stops’ to get the job done properly, and it proved to be a bit of a challenge. But as always, our fitters (Barry and Tony in this instance) rose to the challenge and provided this first-class finish for our customers.
Here we installed Karndean Opus wood plank, which was laid diagonally across the entire area. Note the border detail – particularly around the curve of the fireplace, and the bottom step ‘bullnose’ in the hall.
The Karndean Opus collection is perfect for homes, like this one, as well as in office or commercial spaces too, particularly because it’s both fresh and modern. The Opus collection has a thick 0.55 wear layer/ surface covering, allowing it to withstand heavy foot traffic.
What a beautiful floor – definitely worth the additional work!
