A little bit of thought well in advance will save you a lot of head-scratching when you come to radiator pipes. Try and plan the layout of the floor so that the header joint between two boards lies right across the centreline of the pipe.
|Cut to length the board that's going between the wall and the pipe (not forgetting the 10mm expansion/contraction gap between the board and the wall) and then mark the position of the pipe on the board on the other side of the pipe.|
|Join the two boards together and drill out a hole with a diameter equal to the diameter of the pipe plus an extra 20mm. This then allows for the 10mm expansion/contraction gap around the pipe.|
|If it's a click floor and you're having trouble joining the two boards together, chisel off the top of the leading edge of the groove and glue the boards together with a PVA adhesive.|
You can then use one of our radiator pipe covers to neatly cover the expansion/contraction gap around the pipe.
