    Can Parquet Flooring Be Installed Over Pine Floorboards?

    I have some pine floor boards flooring, which is currently covered with carpets. I am considering removing the carpets and installing parquet flooring over wooden floorboards, is this possible and is it something you can help with?

      Because parquet flooring is made up of small parquetblocks rather than longer floorboards, it is absolutely essential that the fubfloor is perfectly levelled before installation as the tiniest unevennesswill be reflected on the parquet flooring later on. Therefore, installation of parquet flooring directly on floorboards is not possible. It is important that 9 or 12 mm ply is installed on top of the floorbaords to esnure a perfectly even subfloor for the parquet blocks.

    Can You Install Reclaimed Parquet Blocks?


    I have purchased some reclaimed parquet flooring blocks from the internet and I would like to have them installed in my living room - do you provide this service? Please note that they do have some blacks resin on the back. Thank you.

      Hi and thank you for your question regarding installation of reclaimed parquet flooring.

      While we are perfectly capable and experienced in fitting all types of parquet flooring, we always recommend the installation o fnew rather than reclaimed parquet blocks. The reson for this is that reclaimed parquet is very difficult to prepare for installation mainly because of the time it takes to clean the parquet blocks from any residue such as rasin or bitumen. Because this needs to be done for each and every parquet block, it is a very time consuming and hence a very expensive service. In addition, the treatment of reclaimed parquet blocks will most definitely result in some damages to the blocks, which means that you will end up with a pile of blocks with different thickness and different extend of damage.

      Therefore, we recommend the purchase of new parquet blocks as this will speed up the process and make the final result much more appealing.
