When Somerset-based Alan Williams of Apache Carpentry was asked by local housebuilder, Rob Case Ltd, to work on a development of three high-end residential properties near Winsham, Somerset, he knew just the product to call on for the flooring. “We chose CaberDek because it is such a reliable and easy to use product at a competitive price”, said Alan.
Having expertly constructed the timber framework, Alan used CaberDek on top of the joists on the first floors of the three buildings. “We like to use CaberDek because it does exactly what it needs to and the preciseness of the product leaves a better finish and cuts down on installation time”, explained Alan.
Taking care to space the joists with the board sizes in mind, and using CaberFix D4 adhesive, Alan finds he gets great results every time!
“One of the things we really like about CaberDek is the peelable film on the boards. This makes it so much easier when it comes to second fixing and laying floor coverings as it allows the usual building site dirt like drops of paint and plaster to be removed leaving a brand-new surface underneath. We will be using CaberDek on our future flooring projects” said Alan.
CaberDek, part of West Fraser’s CaberFloor range, is designed to withstand the elements for up to 42 days between laying the floor and fixing the roof, when installed according to manufacturer’s instructions. Samples of CaberDek, and West Fraser’s other construction panels, can be ordered on the website.
