Nothing can compare to a stunning parquet flooring, which can outlast a lifetime and can remain valuable asset of your property for ages. A unique and interesting floor makes the first impression in your home, which is the reason why many people nowadays go with the natural hardwood floor that feels comfortable and relaxing.
Parquet flooring is an artistic expression made from blocks of wood in a variety of geometric patterns - some very simple figures, while others can be sophisticated and difficult to achieve and only true professionals like us will provide you with.
Your Own Parquet Floor Design
Your vision is covered by our skills. We do fitting of - single or double herringbone, chevron, basket weave, mosaic or versailles pannels. Just let us know, what parquet pattern you prefer and if you are not sure, we can provide you samples and examples.
Unfinished parquet flooring comes as well with the option to have your patterns fitted from wall-to-wall or with a border around.
You can choose a border with a single to double blocks, or have a long wooden plank for a border, width of 140 mm to 180 mm. In addition we offer deco feature strips from other coloured timbers, which are laid between the parquet pattern and the border. These can be merbau-ash-merbau, walnut-ash-walnut and single strip deco borders of wenge and merbau.
What You Need To Know For Your Parquet Project
Parquet blocks are available nowadays in less timber species, than they used to be a decade ago. Due to envorinment conservation laws, industries should use only selected sourced of timber and some forest species are no longer used for flooring products. This has affected engineered and hardwood flooring products. Quite popular today with solid blocks remain the oak, pine, ash and walnut.
The Blocks Size
The thickness of parquet blocks on the marker varies from 10 mm - 22 mm. Thicker blocks have more lifespan and will have tongue-and-groove fitting, which increases the solidness and resistance against humidity and moisture. In general this type of flooring is cheaper (compared to planks) with thinner blocks being in the lower pricing range.
The pricing is defined as well by the size of the blocks and the flooring grade - check our Guide on Flooring Grades. An average smaller sized solid parquet block is 70x230 mm, which will be ideal for smaller and medium sized rooms, as a block of 70x450 mm will stand in large rooms and halls.
The Importance of Subfloor Prep
Due to the smaller size of solid wood blocks, parquet flooring requires solid and flat surface. It cannot be laid straight over floorboard, sandy surface or an old floating installation.
Our parquet laying service comes complete with subfloor preparation - screeding, damp proofing, plywood and chipboard installation. Unlike with solid wood floor fitting, the subfloor leveling is essential for parquet flooring blocks and our expertise will provide you with the right solution and advice.
Parquet Floor Sanding & Finishing
Have your parquet floors finished in lacquer, oil or hardwax-oil. We can also offer floor staining service, where the colour limits depends entirely on you. Due to the nature of this type of flooring, parquet floor sanding requires the right technique and equipment in hand.
