What is Floor Levelling?

Floor levelling is used to correct imperfections on a rough, uneven concrete subfloor, ensuring the surface is smooth and level. This is particularly important for installing a new floor covering like solid timber or vinyl timber floors, as these materials require a flat surface to avoid cracking, improper alignment, and uneven wear.

The levelling process involves several techniques, including:

Self-levelling compound: A liquid-like mixture is poured over the floor surface, flowing to fill in low areas. This creates a level surface once it hardens.

Grinding: For concrete floors with high spots, grinding can be used to reduce these areas to the level of the rest of the floor. We complete this work with specialised grinding equipment.

Through a combination of these and other techniques, we can transform any concrete slab into a smooth surface ideal for your new floor covering. As a leader in Sydney’s flooring and floor preparation industry, Oz Timber Floor has the experience and expertise to prepare your concrete surface for new timber flooring effectively and affordably.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does the Floor Become Uneven and What Happens If the Floor Becomes Unbalanced?

There are many reasons why your flooring becomes uneven. This is because of how the underlying ground naturally changes over time. These changes occur because of the following:

  • Bad Quality Soil Used
  • Changing Temperature
  • Increased Humidity
  • Poor Soil Compaction

When fitting new floors in their home or commercial buildings, many individuals overlook the critical step of checking the level of their concrete and timber subfloors. This oversight typically results in their floors harbouring minor inconsistencies and dips. To prevent these issues, it’s crucial to prepare the correct floor before installing your new flooring system.

If the floor continues to be unlevelled, this can continue to make the entire floor sound squeaky. This happens due to the bouncing effect created when the floorboards are placed in higher areas. However, when these floorboards are placed in lower areas, this produces a hollow sound. If this issue is not addressed, it can cause serious damage to your property, which is why floor levelling is such an important step.

We are fully transparent with our pricing, so you are more than aware of how much our services cost right before we even get started.

What are the Concrete Floor Levelling Standards as Determined by the CCAA?

Before proceeding with the floor installation process, ensuring the floor is perfectly smooth and level is essential. Levelling the concrete floor is crucial to conform to the Australian standards set by Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA).

These standards stipulate a maximum tolerance for any room and a maximum tolerance of 20 mm across the interior floor coverings throughout the entire building’s footprint. For timber flooring, a tolerance of 3mm per 3m is acceptable. However, if the tolerance exceeds this, floor levelling is necessary.

In contrast, vinyl floor levelling doesn’t require a specific concrete floor surface slab specification. Nevertheless, a balanced slab undoubtedly enhances aesthetic appeal.
