In the flooring business, the choice of sub-floor (meaning the material underneath the actual choice of flooring such as wooden, laminate or vinyl) is a vitally important one for a number of reasons. Chipboard is one such option, offered right here at Theo’s Timber Ltd. Let’s look at some of the most frequently asked questions for those companies considering utilising it.
What Is Chipboard Flooring?
