INSTALLATION

Bonum Wood hardwood floors are designed to be used for a wide variety of projects, both commercial and residential.

Our floors can be installed:

– on ground level
– below ground level
– above ground level
– over a variety of sub-flooring, such as concrete, plywood, OSB sub-floor, and others
– with floor and radiant heating systems
– in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms

There are three different ways our products can be installed: glue-down, staple/nail-down, and floating installation. Though a self-installation is possible, it’s not recommended. Making mistakes can be costly and difficult to fix.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW BEFORE INSTALLING HARDWOOD FLOOR

When you receive your Bonum Wood materials, immediately inspect it for defects before attempting installation. We will replace damaged or defected materials free of charge. Installed planks are considered to have been found acceptable by both the person installing the wood and the owner of the wood.

Natural variations in wood grain and colour are to be expected, so we can’t guarantee complete uniformity between planks.

A margin of on-site cutting waste of about 5-7% for regular and 12-13% for angle installation is recommended. This helps avoid cutting waste and grading variance errors. Please note that this cutting allowance must be added to your floor square-footage before purchase.

Inspect the job-site and its sub-floor before installation to ensure that it is environmentally and structurally acceptable.

Please take the time to read through Bonum Wood installation instruction before beginning, improper installation is likely to void warranties.
