Karndean Retail Partner Manchester, Altrincham, Wilmslow, Chester, Nantwich

Karndean is not a DIY product and so requires specialist fitting inline with the fitting specifications. The most important thing to get right is the subfloor preparation because the product follows the contours of the floor. Sub Floor preparation requires specialist knowledge and experience to ensure the perfect finish is achieved. Our highly skilled fitters have many years of experience of sub floor preparation and laying Karndean.

Karndean Fitting

We are Karndean fitters and also fitters of other brands of Luxury Vinyl flooring such as Polyflor Fitting, Project Floors and Harvey Maria.

Adhesive Selection

When fitting Karndean it is essential that the correct adhesive is used so that a strong bond is achieved. High temperature adhesive will always be used with underfloor heating or in a conservatory because it will be subject to direct heat.

Sub Floor

Grosvenor Flooring will advise you on the correct materials to prepare the subfloor. We only ever use SP101 ply board as specified by Karndean because other cheaper products can delaminate. Different types of primer and screed are required depending on what it is being laid onto.

Moisture Test

Moisture Test

We will always do a moisture test to ensure that there is no moisture in the subfloor because it can cause the flooring to lift. If moisture is detected in the sub floor we apply an epoxy resin Damp Proof Membrane (DPM).
