UNDERFLOOR HEATING AND SOLID FLOORING?

Based on years of experience in laying parquet flooring, we recommend solid parquets for heated floors. As the water in the pipes does not exceed 30° C, underfloor heating is designed to work at low temperatures. There are no major temperature fluctuations and the heating is constant over the entire winter period, which enables the wood to heat and give off heat. The flooring is also pleasant to the touch in the summer when the underfloor heating is off.

Heated floors require a thin solid parquet; we produce solid parquet floorings that have tongue and groove joints, but are thinner than classic parquets – we recommend a thickness of 15mm for underfloor heating. Such flooring is resistant during all seasons; in the winter, when the heating is on, and in the summer, when the rooms are very humid.

The process of laying solid parquet flooring must be properly conducted, so it should be done by a professional expert. It is also necessary to meet the conditions of solid parquet installation on a heated floor. Our solid parquet flooring and installation by experienced and qualified fitters comes with a warranty on the complete service.

Solid parquet flooring is indestructible and can survive multiple generations. It is the only flooring that can be as good as new when renovated. Solid parquet flooring is therefore a superb combination of sustainability, comfort and beauty.

WHY WOOD FLOORING?

Wood is considered one of the most valued natural materials; it is warm, antistatic and elastic. It enables healthy living and is a suitable flooring for allergy sufferers, not to mention its environmental advantages. Wood flooring creates a homely atmosphere, adds warmth to your home and maintains the beauty of wood. Wood flooring is suitable for all the rooms in your home. The right types can also be used in damp rooms and outdoors. The quality of wood flooring depends on the wood quality and type, as well as on surface protection. Solid wood floorings are considered a long-term investment and can be used for several generations if correctly maintained.

It is the best thing you can offer yourself and your family in your new or renovated home. Solid parquet flooring is indestructible and can survive multiple generations, since it is the only flooring that can be as good as new when renovated. It is therefore a superb combination of sustainability, comfort and beauty.

 

As wood is a living, changing material, it is very important that you see the right samples before purchasing a parquet floor. The samples must be varnished or otherwise protected, since the wood hue changes when coated with varnish, oil or wax. Printed catalogue photos are not a suitable criterion for the choice of colours.

However, once laid, the flooring will never be exactly the same as the patterns, since the texture of each tree is different. Each plank is unique. That is what makes the parquet flooring so valuable.

Wood colour is also influenced by lighting and sunlight, which induce the oxidation process. It is important to be aware that wood oxidation is a natural process that cannot be prevented. However, a proper light distribution can enable an even effect.
