Laying EasyGround®

A solid ground floor usually comprises a concrete slab laid on a sub-base. In most instances the thickness of the floor is 100mm to 150mm (4″ to 6″). A layer of polythene, also called a damp-proof membrane (DPM), is usually laid under the concrete slab. It must be continuous and connected to the damp-proof course.

Depending on the floor covering, the top surface of the concrete will need covering with a thin layer (screed) of sand mixed with cement to provide a perfectly level surface. As an alternative, we can supply a low workability concrete using 10mm aggregate.

Replacing a timber floor

  1. Remove all the old timbers and take the doors off the room.
  2. Fill in any holes in the walls left by the timbers.
  3. Demolish any dwarf walls which may have been used to support floor joists.v
  4. Put a chalk line around the walls to mark the finished floor level, allowing for the thickness of screed and floor coverings if necessary.

Laying your sub-base

  1. Lay the material to within 25mm (1″) of the required depth. If the total depth is greater than 200mm (8″), work in layers, compacting each one thoroughly.
  2. Cover the surface with a layer of sand rolled flat. This prevents the polythene DPM from being punctured.
