Underfloor Heating-

  • We must be informed of any underfloor heating system in place at the time of measuring or ordering [this is very important to ensure your floor performs and is installed in the correct manner]
  • Please ensure underfloor heating is switched off for a minimum of 48 hours prior to installation of any latex moving compounds, luxury vinyl tiles and cushion floor vinyl [ideally any floor-covering to be honest]
  • We will only lay on commissioned underfloor heating systems, if a test hasn’t been conducted please insure one is prior to your installation date as non-commissioned systems cannot be laid over.
