A few days leading to the Christmas Day we were booked to complete a renovation work at a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condominium unit in New Westminster.

This strata complex was built in 1990 and our primary tasks were to upgrade entire 975 sq. ft. of old laminate flooring, including removal of carpets in both bedrooms, and install a rigid core vinyl plank flooring with acoustic underlay that provides higher IIC (Impact Insulation Class) of over 86. These floors come with lifetime residential warranty and our customer is very happy with final detail of our work.

The flooring task required extensive leveling and grinding of an original uneven concrete surface in order to ensure that the floor is perfectly flat without any bridging or caving. It absorbed 15 bags or 750 lbs of leveler concrete underlayment to achieve perfectly flat leveling throughout the unit.

It was then complimented with 5” tall, slim-profile baseboards, as well as matching new door casings. We've also done various custom woodworking as we progressed through the project. It was another project we completed on time and within budget.

Oh, did we mention that the 16’ lumber materials were too long to fit through stairways or elevator, but we improvised to bring them inside by hoisting them over the railing one by one? Just a fun fact we wanted to mention here!

The strata requires a flooring IIC (Impact Insulation Class) rating of an at least 84 or higher.
