Parquet board is a popular type of natural wood flooring, which is now used mainly in residential areas. Parquet board is valued for its noble appearance, which preserves the natural wood pattern.
But the key advantage of modern material is the absence of the need to carry out additional operations: grinding, sanding, additional varnishing. Parquet comes from the factory in a completely ready-to-lay form. The main thing is to fix the board correctly and take care of it competently. The material is as easy to dismantle as it is to fit. This is one of the few floor coverings that can be removed and laid in a new place without losing its properties - and so on several times.
Inverted - stabilizing, about 2-3 mm thick. The base is usually a solid spruce plank. It makes the parquet resistant to deformation.
The fibers of the boards in each layer are located perpendicularly: thanks to this, the parquet board remains resistant to temperature changes, to changes in humidity. Even the liquid spilled on the floor will not change the shape of the parquet: the perpendicular design of the layers does not allow the board to expand. Dimensions change only in the transverse direction. Thanks to this, the parquet board can also be laid on a "warm floor" - but provided that the surface temperature does not exceed 27 degrees Celsius.
Advantages and disadvantages.
Unlike classic solid parquet, parquet board with a multilayer structure has the following advantages:
- Modern manufacturers offer a wide range of shades and textures.
There are also disadvantages, but they are quite conditional. For example, the service life of a parquet board is about 25 years, and classic parquet lasts up to 100 years. The number of sanding of the glued board is limited - up to three are allowed for the entire operation. It is possible not to grind not pasted: it is enough to replace the damaged site. Therefore it is better to buy material with a small stock.
