Overlay Flooring

Overlaying is the process of adding a new layer of flooring material, including tiles, LVT, and carpets, over the existing floor. This method is more cost-effective than hacking the existing floors and replacing them entirely. It is a relatively straightforward renovation project that gives your floors a new look in a shorter time. However, this is only possible if the existing flooring is in excellent condition and not old or hollow.

All There is to Know About Overlay Flooring

Once you’ve determined that your flooring is in good condition, the next step is to assess if the existing flooring is sufficiently levelled. Floors should be absent of bumps and pronounced grout joints to ensure a smoother finish. Do you think you’ll require floor levelling services? Fret not – ARDEX-QUICSEAL offers floor levelling solutions as the perfect substrate for subsequent laying works.

Reasons to overlay your existing flooring

There are multiple reasons for overlay flooring. From enhancing the overall sustainability of your floors to helping you save on renovation costs, installing new finishes over existing flooring brings several benefits. Some of these include:

  • Better flooring protection

Adding an overlay can provide a fresh and new finish to your original flooring and offer protection, which can extend the lifespan of your floors.

  • Shorter renovation period

Overlay flooring eliminates the need to hack existing floors, reducing manual labour and speeding up renovation projects.

  • Cheaper renovation costs

Overlaying can be more cost-effective than hacking, as the latter is often expensive.
