InstaFloor's InstaLay was the chosen installation system for a recent apartment renovation done by Real Wood Floors.

Real Wood Floors, based in West Plains, Mo., undertook a major project on the west coast, where InstaFloor's InstaLay was the chosen installation system.

The building was a new three-story luxury condominium in Los Angeles, containing 12 apartments. InstaLay 30hg was used in all entrances, kitchens and living areas to install Real Wood Floors’ ½” x 3¼-inch Parkview Walnut engineered hardwood flooring. Being high specification apartments, good acoustic performance, aesthetics and how the floor felt underfoot were all very important, according to Rick Klaasen, director of development for Real Wood Floors.

“Developers frequently shy away from floating floors in luxury condominiums because of the hollow feel you often get when walking on the floor," he said. We are very pleased that when walking on these floors, installed with the InstaLay system, they feel much more solid than a typical floating floor utilizing either a click system or gluing the T&G. Additionally, if the wood flooring should get damaged the InstaLay system enables rapid repair, with single board replacements undertaken with ease.”
