Strength of a BISF house first floor  


0

Hi 

I am new to this community. I have recently purchased a BISF house in Huntsman Road , IG6 3SX. I want to find out how strong and sturdy is a first floor of this type of steel property, because I want to install real engineered wood on the first floor and put real hardwood furniture in the bedrooms. So it is ok put real wood flooring and put hardwood furnitures on the first floor.

Hi there,

I'm not sure exactly what the load-bearing limits are for a BISF. Whilst I would be wary of installing e.g. numerous big aquariums upstairs, I would have guessed that the total weight of a load of hardwood furniture wouldn't even come close to the design limit for the house. We have real hardwood furniture throughout our upstairs. Most furniture in the 1940s wasn't made of MDF and they were built to accomodate what would have been ordinary furniture at the time.

Hi

Thank you for your swift  answer. May I kindly ask you would it be problem if I install engineered wood flooring on the 1st floor of the property?
