Engineered parquet is made of natural wood, just like the massive parquet, but made of several layers of glued wood. Although installing engineered wood flooring may seem little bit more complicated floor installers claim that it is just as easy and simple as the regular solid wood. The top layer is usually a more expensive and hardened wood. This is between 3 and 6 mm thick and acts as the face of the parquet. The type of wood used in this parquet can range from standard wood to very rare and exotic wood.
Different type of installation
Based on the type of fitting and the type of individual pieces, there are several types of engineered parquet. It can consist of separate relatively small parquet floors, similar to traditional solid parquet. Alternatively, it can be in the form of larger boards consisting of glued individual pieces of wood, more like laminated parquet. As a result this type of parquet can be installed as a solid floor, glued or screwed to the base. We can also fit it for you with a glued “punch”, or “click” system, or one similar to laminated flooring. With this type of installation, the flooring doesn’t remain bonded to the base.
