Assessing Timber Floors 20/03/2012

Assessing Timber Floors is a two day course designed for those who want to get to the bottom of things. It has been successfully adapted from and replaces the ATFA Floor Inspector Course. This two day workshop will not only provide you with a sound understanding of the behaviour of different flooring products, but importantly the practicalities of taking measurements correctly and then correctly interpreting what they mean. The workshop, includes a series of case studies that will provide practical ‘know how’ on taking measurements, using and understanding measurement equipment (including timber and concrete moisture measurement) and also how to assess the likes of sub-floors, whether this be joists, particleboard or a concrete slab.  Download course details and registration here.
