Parquet Floor Fitting in Scotland and within the UK
Since parquet flooring is one of the oldest wood flooring types, that can be found in houses across the United Kingdom and have its resistant and established traditions, we have mastered fitting of parquet blocks with highest possible standards. Parquet floor installation reminds of any kind of hardwood floor fitting out there is so many directions, including subfloor preparations. What makes parquet fitting different is the layout of parquet wooden blocks. A parquetry has a rich look because it is composed of thousands of little pieces. Tiles or blocks are made of solid wood or engineered wood and can be installed using adhesive, nails or glue down and nailing combinations (most stable option) parquetry consist of repeating patterns and exciting compositions such as herringbone, double herringbone, basket or bespoke parquet pattens. Having in mind the mosaic and complex construction of parquetry, parquet fitting should be done by professionals and we are happy to help you for your private residential or large commercial projects in Scotland and across the UK.
Different than engineered plank flooring or solid wood planks and floating installation, parquet flooring blocks must be glued or nailed directly to the subfloor. If needed, Unique Bespoke Wood can provide different kinds high quality underlays, especially for subfloor, which can't be levelled for some reason. All our Parquet blocks have tongue and groove locking system edges and their installation consist of pressing each block into the adhesive, then sliding them into its neighbor. Nailing is another option and thanks to tongue and groove system, the parquet flooring can be secret nailed.
Parquet installation starts from the center of the room in outer direction. As any other kind of wood flooring, small expansion gap should be left around the perimeter of the room to prevent cracking and loose pieces if the wood shrinks or enlarges due different conditions (moisture or change of temperature).
