Le parquet flooring   today

The parquet flooring these days is available in the form of   parquet panels and solid parquets. Both of these forms are manufactured using   different types of woods including walnut, mahogany, pine and oak. Solid le   parquet is made up of wooden blocks which are glued together to form different   patterns. The most common and most popular pattern among all is the   herringbone pattern. It’s usual thickness is between ¾ inches to 5/8 inches.   Instead of being nailed down, it is glued down to the surface while   installing it. Panels of parquet flooring comprise of hardwood veneers which   are glued onto the surface of less expensive wooden materials like plywood.   Veneers are also known as wear layers and come in a thickness between ¼ inch   to 1/16 inch. They are installed over the surface using glue and following   the pattern of groove and tongue joints.

Usual cost

Parquet flooring is available in a variety of different price   ranges that vary on the basis of the quality of the product. The price tag   starts off from as low as 0.99 dollars for every square foot and goes all the   way to more than 60 dollars a square foot. The price is devised on the basis   of the fact if the parquet comprises of veneer or solid material, the type of   wood it is made up of, and the thickness and size of the wood. Le parquet   flooring made up of solid wood is more expensive in comparison to that made   up of veneers. But you might want to consider that solid wood has a longer   life time as you can easily refinish the surface of the floor using a sand   paper which is impossible in case of the flooring made out of veneers.   Parquet flooring is also available in medallion wood which is a very exotic   and expensive type of wood. Such type of parquet flooring costs a lot more   than the other usual types.


Different warranty tenures are provided for different types of la   parquet floorings. Some of these floorings provide lifetime coverage while   the cheaper ones can provide you a warranty for as many as 25   years.
