How to Fill Draughty Floorboard Gaps

Cold draughts created by the gaps between floorboards can lead to chilly and uncomfortable rooms and increased heating bills during the winter months. Even rooms that have carpet and underlay fitted often have gaps between the skirting board and the floorboards that allow significant heat to be lost.

Traditional floorboard gap filling techniques and products are time consuming, messy to install and will often fall out over time. DraughtEx is a proven floorboard gap filler, designed to reduce the cold draughts and improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.

Easy Installation with No Mess

DraughtEx floorboard gap filler could not be easier to install. The specially designed DraughtEx applicator, which is supplied FREE with every order, will ensure that your floorboard draught excluder is inserted to the correct depth within your floorboard gaps. The fitting process is extremely quick and easy and requires no messy adhesives.

Our simple step-by-step installation instructions are easy to follow and will ensure you get a perfect finish.

Suitable for Different Size Gaps

DraughtEx is the best material to fill gaps in floorboards becaue its flexible properties allow it to compress and expand with the natural movement of the floorboard gap meaning it doesnt fall out over time. It can also be compressed into gaps much smaller than its original profile, enabling you to fill even the smallest of gaps in your floorboards.

Available in 3 sizes, thin, standard and thick, DraughtEx gives you the flexibility to combat all your floorboard draughts and if you are unsure which size to order, you can simply order a sample pack and try them out.

Natural "Shadow" Appearance

How do you fill the cold gaps between your floorboards without ruining the overall look of your finished floor? DraughtEx is manufactured in our specially formulated colour "Shadow" which has been designed to mimic the natural shadows created between floorboards and allows you to fill your floorboard gaps and achieve the look you want.

Fantastic Energy Savings

Did you know that in a 12ft x 12ft room the gaps in your floorboards create a draught that is equivalent to leaving a small window open! This can result in significant heat loss, uncomfortable rooms and unnecessarily high heating and energy costs during the winter months.

The Energy Saving Trust estimates that filling floorboard gaps can save a household up to £40.00 per room per year on energy bills and reduce its CO2 contribution by around 110 kg.
