Boral Timber Flooring – Direct Stick Slimwood overlay

Direct stick timber flooring is a process where the timber is glued directly to the sub-floor.

The sub-floor can be either traditional strip flooring, Plywood, Structa floor or Concrete.

If the sub floor is a concrete floor the moisture content must be below 5.5% prior to installation or problems will occur.


When using solid timber you must acclimatise the timber to the room environment for a period of a minimum of 10 days preferably 2 to 3 weeks before installation. Once installed, we need to acclimatise again for another 2 weeks before sanding and polishing the floor.

Direct stick solid timber flooring is restricted to certain widths. If too wide, it will pull itself off the sub-floor. The width is restricted to 90mm wide when direct sticking to a concrete sub-floor.

The timber that can be used is either a 12 or 13mm tongue & groove solid timber or a floating timber prefinished floor.
