Refurbishment in Birmingham

Sector: Domestic
Type: Insulation, Liquid Floor Screed, Sanding, Underfloor Heating

Our domestic client had been working on this substantial refurbishment project in Birmingham for over 5 years. As such, she had exacting standards and was prepared to give us the time we needed to install the right underfloor heating systems on each of the 3 storeys to meet her requirements.

On the ground floor we installed over 200sqm of thermal insulation in a mixture of 25mm and 50mm boards, we then installed a 500 gauge polythene separating membrane to provide tanking for the liquid screed. Installers then affixed a 15 port manifold in the designated location, and then underfloor heating pipework directly through to the insulation ready for a 50mm liquid screed.

For the upper floors we installed our Easy Backer Board system with low profile panels to areas where there was a dense concentration of pipes running through. Most floor finishes can be applied directly on top of this is system, for carpeted areas a 5mm covering of a latex levelling compound is required.
