Cocobolo Flooring in Beautiful Bellingham Home

Before any good installation is started, prep of existing home components is a must. This installation will be over radiant heat. The wood 2×4’s have had paint and dirt spilled over them.

Process: We must sand the 2×4’s to ensure a good glue bond. The 2×4’s are loose and will be re-screwed to the sub-floor. A stable 3/4″ plywood is installed over the “sleeper” 2×4’s. Generous glue usage and screw down of plywood to 2×4’s will give a long lasting base to the new wood Cocobolo wood floor.

After this is completed, then the flooring is racked out for further stabilization.
