BENEFITS OF HAVINGParquet Flooring

Four of the key benefits to have parquet flooring are:
GREAT HISTORY (Stays in fashion)
Parquet flooring was first used in France in 1684 in the Palace of Versailles. Today, you too could have a bit of royal glamour in your home. Parquet flooring has an extremely beautiful appearance and remains for decades one of the most popular wood flooring options.
BUDGET & ALLERGY FRIENDLY
Parquet flooring will for sure pay off over the years for you and your family. It is a really affordable floor option. It brings lasting quality. It is easy to clean and maintain. Furthermore, it is allergy-friendly compared to other floor solutions because pollen, dust, pet dander or mould do not get trapped into your floor.
WOOD TYPES & SIZES
Choose between softwood or hardwood materials. We recommend oak parquet flooring, which is currently very popular, very reasonably priced and lasts for a really long time. It also has a beautiful natural colour.
LONGEVITY
Parquet flooring is very durable. Even with the usual wear and tear it can last for many years. With moderate use you could expect between 25 - 35 years before a quick maintenance service. With limited use and timely maintenance it may last between 75 - 100 years. For example, we have even restored parquet floors, which have endured for 200 years.

ABOUT OUR SERVICESParquet Flooring Installation & Maintenance

Whether you want to update your current parquet flooring or install a new one, we can quickly and efficiently fix any issue.
1
What floor type is right for me?

Oak is by far the most popular wood type for parquet flooring. This is because oak is not only extremely durable but also very sturdy. With the use of special adhesives, the blocks stick down easily on a clean, dry, and dust free surface. Moreover, this significantly reduces the possibility of block movements resulting in bumps or uneven surface. In order to create a more impressive finish we cut the already existing skirting-boards and place wood beneath them.

2
What parquet patterns can I have?

Parquet flooring is made from blocks of different sizes and can take the form of various geometrical patterns to create a beautiful and decorative structure. Few common types are Fishbone parquet, Double Fishbone parquet and Square Fishbone parquet. You can also have the parquet flooring with or without a single or double border around the walls. Other options are also available such as Mosaic Parquet Flooring.

Before and After

Above all, the most common and famous type of parquet is herringbone parquet and it has excellent qualities – both technical and aesthetic. As a result, flooring specialists, floor installers and wood floor designers in general claim that this solid wood parquet is the most reliable and durable amongst the other options within the available range of natural wood flooring.

PROTECTIVE LAYERSFinishing Touches

In short, after installing the parquet the next step is to sand it with special machines and add a finishing protective layer. This layer additionally can be waxed or polished. On customer’s request, the finishing layer can be Matte, Semi-Matte or Glossy.

Furthermore, varnishing and waxing adds yet another protective layer to the already existing parquet to provide extra durability. Because the wood is natural and solid it is possible to renovate it time and time again through scraping. Consequently, it makes it very cost efficient in the long run. General benefits of varnishing and waxing are:

    We found Danial through recommendation.
    We have used Danial and his team to update our staircases on the ground and the first floor.
    The finished job is astonishing!
    Danial has a lot of experience, is a great advise with an eye for detail
    … More and all the tools & techniques!
    He is supported a good team too.
    They worked outside under a marquee so that there was limited dust in the house (we are living in whilst they were working). And the work was cleaned every night.
    It took a good 4 days for us...
    also they agree to do a little extra work and polish our kitchen worktop (made of wood).
    We are very satisfied .. are would be happy to recommend Danial to anyone.. But to be honest the work speak by itself: people are coming to visit and are already asking for his details ..
