Click Fit Laminate Flooring From Beautiful Flooring Direct

The world of floor boarding has changed over the years as wood has become ever more expensive it is difficult to justify the cost of exotic wood floors planed and polished to give an attractive wood floor finish. The use of a laminate flooring system has allowed this type of finish to be achieved at a far reduced cost but with an appearance that looks equally as good as a finished solid wood floor.

Beautiful Flooring Direct is now providing an excellent service in supplying laminates of many different types of woods to be used at an extremely advantageous price. The laminates work with a very strong wood substrate to which a top laminate veneer is supplied, the types of materials that are used on the Beautiful Flooring Direct range of materials are of the highest qualities and it should be possible to source any finish that is required.

One of the major problems with the present laminate system is that they work on a tongued and grooved edging system where the joint is made by pushing the tongue into the groove after a small amount of glue is placed into the groove and or tongue and then the two parts are stuck together. This makes a very strong joint but it has two disadvantages, the first being that to make the joint in this fashion is time consuming and the second is that it is difficult to dismantle if there is a problem at a later date.

The Beautiful Flooring Direct Company now supplies the “Click– Fit” system which moves the laminate flooring on to a completely new level. The joining system is exactly as it says, when the tongue is pushed into the groove no glue is required and the tongue just clicks into position in the groove and is held firmly into position by the neatly designed “click system” This system now requires no gluing and the speed of fitting is very fast and the accuracy of the design makes a very fine joint with no gaps between adjacent pieces. Probably one of the best advantages is that any changes can be accommodated fairly easily although there may be some edge damage.

The quality click floor tiles supplied by Beautiful Flooring Direct can all be purchased on the internet and the excellent design of the Beautiful Flooring Direct web site gives a full description of all the products available and any questions can be directed to the sales staff by email or telephone. It is essential to fit these floors correctly and the company will be delighted to assist in any way possible to ensure a great finish. Beautiful Flooring Direct recommends that any click–fit laminate flooring is placed in the room where it is to be fitted to allow it to get to the typical room temperature. This will limit the amount of expansion of the laminates during the typical working day, fitting will usually include at least 8mm (More than ¼ inch) of expansion gap all around the room to take up extra expansion. To cover this expansion gap Beautiful Flooring Direct recommends that the skirting board is removed wherever possible to cover this gap at all times. Get clicked in with Beautiful Flooring Direct.

More Real Estate press releases Reveal Survey Of Most Sought After UK Locations To Raise Children

UK property website WhatNewHomes has just announced the results of a survey seeking to find out the best UK towns and villages in which to raise a family. The survey, which takes into account a comprehensive array of factors including childcare costs, crime statistics, schools and house prices, compared over 2,500 different UK postcodes.

The top ‘performing’ location according to the survey, is a village called Winkleigh, in the county of Devon, a county that has become one of the most desirable parts of the UK to move to, and forms part of the ‘English Riviera’.

The village scored highly on all criteria, especially quality of life, schooling, and housing affordability. And whilst its certainly the case that we can’t all move to this one village, the results of the survey do reveal a lot about the kind of factors that young families look for when moving to a new location. Accessibility to countryside and open spaces has been shown to be a key factor when relocating, and this explains why so many rural and semi-rural locations have performed so well in this survey.

Second on the list of locations is South Petherton in Cornwall (which is also from the South West region of England). This rural town scored particularly highly in terms of its historic heritage and architecture, as well as access to countryside and local amenities.

City locations fared quite poorly in the survey, with the highest ranking ‘city’ location being Sutton Coldfield, which now forms part of greater Birmingham in the UK’s Midlands. The survey seems to reflect the current trend for young families to move away from the bigger conurbations to rural and semi-rural locations in order to better raise their children.
