UltraFloor makes for smooth LVT installation

Highly skilled flooring contractors, Ransome Flooring Limited, have used Level IT Smooth floor leveller to install LVT flooring at a ground floor apartment in Bristol.


With over 20 years’ experience and a reputation built on perfection, reliability and recommendation, Ransome Flooring Limited’s extensive nationwide flooring portfolio put them in perfect place to install 68sqm of LVT flooring at a ground floor apartment in Bristol.

The Challenge

Due to the design of the apartment, a seamless transition between the various living areas was crucial. The products used also needed to provide a first time, rapid and silky smooth finish to minimise disruption and prevent any dangerous trip hazards for the homeowner.

The Solution

After securing the project, Ransome Flooring Limited sought professional advice from UltraFloor’s team of product experts. After visiting site, and carrying out moisture testing, UltraFloor recommended the use of Prime IT Multi-surface Primer and Level IT Smooth – expert subfloor preparation materials that would meet the clients’ requirements perfectly.

Formulated to promote adhesion to all UltraFloor smoothing underlayments, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer reduces pinholing, minimising the risk of costly failures. With a coverage rate of 200m² at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.

Prime IT Multi-surface Primer was applied to the substrate, and once both coats of primer had fully dried, Level IT Smooth was applied.

Pump or trowel applied from 2mm to 30mm, Level IT Smooth has an extremely smooth finish, essential for installing LVT, and boasts a superior flow – perfect for larger flooring projects.

With a coverage rate of approximately 5.5sqm at 3mm, Level IT Smooth is suitable for underfloor heating systems, has a working time of 20-30 minutes and can receive foot traffic after just 2-3 hours – allowing you to move on to the next part of your project quickly.

The superior performance of Level IT Smooth is just one reason why this much-loved smoothing underlayment is being used on a daily basis up and down the country.

The Results

Thanks to the expertise of Ransome Flooring Limited and UltraFloor’s superb subfloor preparation materials, the homeowner was soon able to enjoy their luxurious new flooring.
