    Below is a recent refit of a classroom at William Lilley School.

    First of all the old carpet was removed and then the existing parquet flooring was uplifted and removed this had suffered damp which was causing the floor to swell in the middle. This was a very time consuming job as the parquet flooring was originally stuck down with bitumen adhesive.

    Once the parquet floor was completely removed and thoroughly swept a damp proof membrane (DPM) (the black) was adhered to the sub-floor. After (as you can see from the picture below) Lee is applying a screed (the grey) this is used to create a completely smooth surface. When this has completely dried which usually takes approximately 4 hours to dry (depending on conditions in the room) A carpet adhesive will be applied to the floor ready for the carpet to be fitted.

    The finished Result...

    Below Lee is applying black PVC sit on skirting around the wash basin.

    A slightly clearer picture of the actual carpet colour with a shiny new door trim.
