Wooden Flooring / Laminated Flooring

There are three main classes of parquetry in use: solid parquet, veneers and laminates.

Solid parquet, as the name suggests, is solid wood, the standard thickness of each board is typically 10mm or more; this enables the wooden floor to be heavily sanded numerous times over its lifetime.

Veneers are a layer of solid wood, at least 2.5mm thick (referred to as the 'wear' layer) in thickness attached to a base of cheaper wood or plywood; this enables a floor to be sanded and finished using conventional techniques, and can be repaired by light re-sanding.

Laminates are the cheapest form, consisting of a faux-wood image applied to a cheap base such as particle board and a clear protective layer applied on top. 

Boards generally fit together with a tongue and groove, having consequently the pattern alike on both sides.

Wooden floors can be installed in a number of configurations. In a floating floor configuration, a layer of underlay is placed on top of the existing floor (for noise and heat insulation), the boards are then placed on top, locking together using the tongues and grooves, the weight of the combined boards holds them in place.

To attach the floor more permanently boards can be either fixed using nails (driven through the tongue at an angle of roughly 35 degrees), or attached using a water or organic solvent based glue if the sub floor is unsuitable for nails, such as concrete.

  

Cleaning and Repair

There is nothing difficult about maintaining a wooden floor. All you have to do is take into account its finish (varnished or oiled) and the way it’s used.
