Parquet floors are a hallmark of sophistication and style.
Parquet flooring offers a timeless quality floor that guarantees lasting appeal. Our craftsmen who specialise in parquet flooring can create floors, using hardwood blocks which can be laid in a variety of patterns that include Herringbone, Chevron or Basket-weave, you may choose motifs, inlay strips and borders to create your own unique and individual design, using reclaimed or new blocks.
Parquet flooring is very hardwearing and is therefore suitable for commercial use - often found in schools, museums, churches, restaurants, gyms, dance halls and many other public places. Parquet flooring is also a popular choice for many residential homes creating style and durability.
Different timbers ranging in colour and grain can be used for the blocks that make up the parquet flooring and these include those such as oak, merbau, sapele, walnut, cherry, maple and pine. The higher quality and more expensive parquet flooring is likely to be made from a wood such as mahogany which once laid will produce beautiful parquet floors.
Parquet floors are also often found in bedrooms and hallways. They are often considered better than some other floor types since they feel warmer underfoot. Parquet flooring can be installed with under-floor heating in the correct conditions.
Parquet wood flooring is a good choice if you are looking for a reasonably affordable flooring option in the long term. Parquet floors are usually long lasting and require simple maintenance. Parquet wood flooring may be brushed clean with a soft brush, and damp mopped with a neutral detergent when necessary to keep the floor clean.
Parquet floors were formerly adhered to subfloors using hot bitumen. Today modern cold adhesives are usually used for installation or repairs and renovation.
There are a range of different patterns and timber species.
