His does this strip remove the need for scotia and does it completely remove the need for expansion gaps around the edge of a room?

Asked by: Mcservices
Thank you for your enquiry. Expansion strips are intended for use around the perimeter of the room. As they are flexible they will enable the natural movement of flooring materials during temperature variance. Dependent on the installation scenario, they may/may not be visible due to the position of skirting. Adding scotia is a personal preference depending on the finish required.

Can they be painted?

Our flooring is light grey and we have overdone the expansion gap meaning the scotia wont cover the gap. Can they be painted to colour match our laminate?
Asked by: Chan181
Cork is porous and therefore, may be difficult to paint. Depending on the gap, it may be more aesthetically pleasing to find a deeper scotia to cover the gap.

Do these strips provide enough resitance to act as a packer to prevent the laminate flooring moving around when you are initially laying them?

I have herringbone laminate which moves around a lot when tapping the boards into place at the edges and I'm wondering if these strips would work instead of having lots of plastic/wood packers all over the place.
Asked by: MrRedWooker
Many thanks for your question. Yes these expansion strips have been designed to prevent flooring from moving during installation.

when to install them

Hi, Would these be installed after the flooring is put down? I'm using wedges around the perimeter first. thanks
Asked by: Steve060283
Thank you for your interest. Cork expansion strips are intended to remain in place, they can be installed before or after the flooring is installed as required.

Can it be used to fill gaps in between the floor boards to stop draughts?

Asked by: Maddy1982
Thank you for your enquiry. These cork expansion strips have been designed for use around the perimeter of the room. They have not been tested for use between floor boards, although they may help to fill gaps between floor boards if required.
