Council House Refurbishment

26th July 2016

In 2014 Wrexham council started a refurbishment program for all their council houses built in the 1960s. The existing subfloors were a mixture of quarry tiles or concrete, and following moisture testing, the R.H (Relative Humidity) readings were over 85%, which was probably the result of an absent or ineffective damp proof membrane.

ARDEX UK is a system solution provider of high-performance speciality building materials, and the brand choice for installers and distributors throughout the construction industry.

ARDEX products used on the project:

  • ARDITEX NA – Ultra Rapid Setting Subfloor Latex Levelling and Smoothing Compound
  • ARDEX DPM 1 C – One Coat Surface Damp Proof Membrane

Around 5,000 properties will be refurbished each year, with another three years to go on the project. ARDEX are working in partnership with Tarkett, using Safetred Spectrum Vinyl Flooring.
