Questions & Answers

Placing heavy objects (including waterbeds, wardrobes, etc.) on Balterio laminate is not a problem provided that the subfloor is compression resistant (this means the subfloor keeps its thickness and creep over time). Make sure there is an expansion joint of at least 8 mm around heavy objects. The expansion joint can be finished with Balterio skirting or a profile. Avoid point loads at all times - this is a heavy load on one point: for example, place thin wooden bars under the legs of a snooker table to spread the weight and pressure better.
