Had a conservatory built.
Concrete floor is about 5" thick and was poured on May 1st ready mixed (5
weeks ago). It was ok to walk on the next day. It also has a DPM under it.
Not knowing anything about the concrete, it's whatever standard stuff that
might be delivered by a contract concrete supplier.
The question I have (and I have researched on google as well but would like
further opinions), is how long after the floor has been poured is it safe to
lay laminate flooring down?
I have a DPM ready to go on top of it and fibre board to go under the
The laminate packs say 1 week per cm which would mean, based on that
advice - 12.5 weeks before we could put the flooring down. Advice across
various google results suggests 6 weeks. Would we really have to wait
another 7 weeks before putting the flooring down or should we be safe to go
next week or even today?
It has been rather warm over the last couple of weeks and the room has been
vented almost every day.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
