Different variety of wood
As far as real parquet flooring is concerned – oak is by far the most popular wood type being used in parquet floors. This is caused by the fact that oak is not only extremely durable but also sturdy. With the use of special adhesives, the blocks are stuck down on a clean, dry, and dust free surface which eliminates the possibility of the blocks being moved away from each other or create bumps and unevenness in the floor surface. In order to create a more impressive finish, we cut the already existing skirting-boards and place wood beneath them.
After the parquet has been installed, the next step is to sand it with special machines and add a finishing protective layer. This layer additionally could be waxed or polished.
On customer’s request, the finishing layer can be made matt, semi-matt or glossy. Varnishing and waxing adds yet another protective layer to the already existing parquet to provide extra durability.
As parquet is made of natural wood, it can be renovated time and time again through scraping.
