Parquet Floor Installation Process
Proper subfloor preparation is crucial for a successful parquet installation. Our technicians check for moisture and repair any cracks or uneven areas. The subfloor must be completely dry, debris-free, and level for the best glue adhesion. We use moisture meters and floor leveling compounds to create the ideal base.
The intricate parquet patterns require diligent planning and layout prior to installation. We map out the floor plan and design based on the room size and shape. This allows us to visualise how the pattern will fit, identify any issues, and ensure no costly mistakes. Our expertise is vital for aligning complex layouts like herringbone.
Parquet blocks are secured directly to the subfloor, not floated over it. We use advanced adhesives applied across the floor to firmly glue down the blocks. Nailing through the tongue and groove is another option for adding stability. The direct bonding results in solid installation with no movement.
Installing parquet starts from the centre lines of the room, expanding outward in rows. This helps keep the pattern aligned and symmetrical. Working from the middle allows us to make adjustments to the perimeter if needed. The result is a balanced floor with the pattern centred.
A small gap of 5-15mm is left between the parquet flooring and walls. This allows room for the natural expansion and contraction of the wood. Without any spacing, the floor risks buckling or planks becoming unglued. Our experts precisely calculate the gap needed for longevity.
Extra care is taken when installing the parquet around irregular corners or room angles. This prevents disrupting the pattern alignment or having mismatched seams. We meticulously plan borders and transitions to maintain the floor design. You’ll never notice where layout adjustments were made.
