This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Seems a good price for 12mm laminate with 4.6/5 reviews. 15% off flooring over £100 spend expires tomorrow at which point it reverts to £11/sq metre which still seems a good price

Would really appreciate some advice on underlay to go with this on a concrete floor. I'm useless at DIY but going to have a go at fitting this myself. I have a concrete floor and keep reading about needing a damp proof membrane and vapour barriers. I don't know what this means. I was about to purchase the fibreboard underlay from Wickes (2 packs for £40 and then further 15% off) but concerned this won't be damp proof. Also my concrete floor is very slightly uneven so looking for underlay which helps with 2-3mm unevenness. Any advice appreciated!

Thanks

Is wickes for rental properties, is it good quality?


No, if it's a rental property it's really important you put down cheap carpets that show stains easily. Ker-ching!

Really your letting agent should be advising you of ways to totally scam your tenants now those pesky fees for printing a bit of paper have been hit on the head.

Good deal, we have just bought some from a local supplier similar price but 10mm 😩
We were advise to get barrier underlay for the concrete floor. It’s like a thin foam roll
I used wickes 12mm lamite in my summer house. I fix cycles in there and it's still looks great.

I used sonic gold underlay but over the 28mm t&g untreated wood flooring.
Use Sonic Gold and foil tape to tape the joints. It is underlay and vapour barrier in one. Used it myself pretty good.

You wont manage to do it. I have concrete floor and a odd bend. I paid this foreigner joinery guy to do it and he didn't do the bend properly so laminate lifted a few cm up. Now I advise you try laying it on that area so you find out.
You also need alot of cutting when doing chimney breast so it's all not that easy.b

Bend? Is that because the floor is not level? Can u use self leveling floor compound to sort it?

Yea I mean it's not level so they used extra underlay to make it level which it is.
Last time I used the thin roll of black underlay. That was awful and I was told to buy green sheets which I did and I'm very happy I did now
Surely most concrete floors should have a damp proof membrane when the concrete is laid. You shouldn't use a foam underlay for LVT floors as they are flexible and if you use a spongy floor this could make the joints come loose. Underlay like this should be used carpetright.co.uk/und…oll you can also buy on Ebay. I have used this on concrete and over wood and looks excellent. LVT is very easy to lay and cut.
Duralay Timbermate excel is one of the best lengineered wood or laminate flooring imo

available online or screwfix
I would not recommend wood fibre boards for any installation js
Anyone know if this is the same stuff as Kronospan Rockford Oak 12mm rebranded?

Same 1click2go fitting system as krono vario plus, exact same spec so most likely a rebrand only way to tell for sure is to grab a sample (various retailers have krono) and put them side by side
Voted hot , much better quality Laminate brands out there but not at this price!

Thanks, yeah I think it is the same stuff... don't have a wickes nearby to view but have seen the krono in other stores so was considering ordering this online before the offer ends if it's identical.

Dont forget an extra 10% off for trade + members.
I'm new to diy and I'm interested in this flooring but would a self leveling floor compound work on a floor like this? Sorry about the bad pic.

If your subfloor is wood floor boards use plywood if its concrete use a latex screed(self levelling compound)
