Are you ready for a new floor? Then you have a choice of several options. Carpet, tiles, laminate or parquet. A parquet floor is a real asset to your home and can be used as floor insulation. Parquet floors give your home a natural and warm look. Would you like to know what a parquet floor is and what possibilities there are? Are you curious what the work can consist of, what it costs to hire a professional and what other costs you have to take into account? Read all about it in this blog.
A parquet floor consists of wooden planks that are clicked together. You have the choice of solid parquet or lamella parquet. Solid parquet consists of planks from one piece of wood. Solid parquet can be sanded up to three times and has a lifespan of up to 50 years. Multilayer parquet consists of planks made up of several layers of wood. Engineered wood can be sanded only once and has a service life of "only" 15 years. Due to the variety of wood species and installation options, each parquet floor has a unique appearance. Please note that parquet flooring requires maintenance in the form of sanding, varnishing or oiling and is not suitable for damp rooms.
Parquet floor prices can vary considerably. The price that you ultimately pay for laying parquet depends on the type of parquet floor. There is cheap and expensive parquet and the price is largely determined by the type of wood and its thickness. The laying method, floating or glued down, also affects the costs of a parquet floor.
To successfully lay a parquet floor, a level sub-floor is required. Take this into account. The professional, who you can book quickly and easily via Zoofy, will certainly point this out to you.
