How to put substrate

Those materials which outside are not visible have the maximum impact on final quality of works. When laying any floor covering (linoleum, laminate, parquet or another), the substrate is surely used. So, conclusion arises: exterior of floor depends on quality of the chosen substrate and correctness of its mounting.

It is required to you

  • - substrate;
  • - level weight;
  • - primer;
  • - roller;
  • - adhesive tape;
  • - construction knife;
  • - putty;
  • - palette;
  • - water;
  • - brush.


1. Distinguish set of types of substrates for this reason the sequence of mounting directly depends on the type of substrate chosen by you.

2. If you use pith substrate, then prepare for a start the basis on which this substrate will keep within by beskleevy method. Ideally this has to be thin tie from level weight which before laying of substrate it is obligatory for progruntuyta. When laying pith substrate near wall leave small gap. Then lay substrate, and cut off its excess parts construction knife. Stick together joints of separate strips of substrate (the pith substrate is on sale in rolls) special adhesive tape.

3. If you have decided to use the substrate of Icopal Parkolag consisting of bitumen, dense paper and granulated cork, make sure that the basis on which it will keep within, dry (the maximum allowed humidity – 80%). Level surface putty then let's it dry up. Carry out mounting of the substrate consistently, that is, piece behind piece, and, stack the pith party down. Near walls leave small gap, and carry out sealing of joints between separate pieces by means of adhesive tape.

4. If the heat-insulated floor is indoors assigned, then before stacking on it parquet or laminate, lay substrate with the minimum indicators of heat conduction, for example, Tuplex substrate. For a start make sure that the basis clean and dry, and the roughness of floor is no more than three millimeters. Roll I will enclose on floor surface then moisten with water nakhlestny part (the glue basis therefore after its wetting by water on this glue it is possible to paste the following strip of substrate is applied on this of hunks).

5. If the floor covering keeps within on the old wooden basis, then the expanded polyethylene substrate, for example, Izoky will become irreplaceable substrate for you. Stack Izoky joint in joint then glue all seams with special adhesive tape.
