contractor, Designer Contracts, was given just two days to complete
the installation of the whole ground floor and two upstairs
bathrooms. This would have been an impossible timescale using
traditional methods.

However, by using the InstaLay self-adhesive flooring
installation system, the deadline was met as it required minimal
sub-floor preparations. The InstaLay 25hg was simply loose laid,
avoiding the need for time consuming smoothing compounds and messy

problem because InstaLay is moisture tolerant and can be used on
floors where moisture levels are above the normally accepted level,

room, kitchen/diner, downstairs cloakroom and both upstairs
bathrooms. InstaLay ensured finished floors with an excellent look
and underfoot feel which were warmer and more comfortable to walk
