How the parquet floor installation service goes

  • On-site survey - The process starts with a free inspection. The experienced fitter will evaluate the condition of your floor, consult with you on what you’re looking for, and give you a no-obligation quote for the installation of parquet flooring. Once you confirm that you’re happy with it, the parquet service can be arranged and begin.
  • Subfloor preparation - Parquet floor fitting requires a smooth base in order to be successful. So, the next step is subfloor preparation. The technician will take every measure to ensure the foundation is solid and completely level. Then, they will advise you on what type of underlay is suitable for your subfloor. You have the option to have a sound-absorbing cushion fitted before laying the parquet blocks. This will reduce noise in the room where it’s installed, as well as the one below.
  • Parquet floor fitting - After the base is fully prepared and the underlay fitted, the specialist will carry on installing your parquet flooring. First, all measurements will be taken and the mainline planned. This is perhaps the most time-consuming part of the entire process, with the actual installation of the parquet blocks being relatively quick. The full parquet floor fitting service can take several days.

    The experts can lay parquet flooring on almost any kind of surface, from concrete to plywood. The blocks can either be glued or nailed down. If adhesive is used, it will need to dry completely before the next stages can begin, so the process can sometimes be quite lengthy.

    Parquet blocks can be installed in a variety of patterns, such as diagonal basket weave or brick bond, with the most popular design being herringbone. Before the fitting, the expert will consult with you on which pattern you would like.

  • Gap filling - This is a big part of the parquet flooring installation process, as small or large gaps can remain in some of the blocks’ joints, even if they were installed with the utmost care. However, gap-filling can easily resolve this.
  • Staining (optional) - If you’d like to change the colour of your parquet floor, the experts can advise you on which shade will suit your needs best and stain the parquet blocks.
  • Floor finishing - After the parquet blocks have been installed and the gaps filled, the flooring will be finished to achieve the stunning look you’re after and protect it for a long time. The expert will sand the floor with a specialised no-dust machine. Then, they will buff the surface lightly to remove any marks that may have appeared during the floor sanding process. And finally, the parquet will be sealed with the finish of your choice. This can be either varnish, lacquer, oil, or hardwax oil, depending on the effect you want.

Parquet floor installed in a London property

What are the main benefits of parquet flooring?

A parquet floor is the traditional choice and has long been known for its elegant and classic look. These floors consist of parquet blocks instead of floorboards, which allows them to be laid in a variety of patterns. There are many reasons why you might choose to install a parquet floor in your home. Some of these include:

  • Uniqueness - Since parquet flooring is highly customisable, you can tailor the design to your personal style preferences. There is a wide range of parquet patterns available - Classic herringbone, Basket weave, Chevron, Chantilly, Brick bond, Mosaic, you name it! You can have parquet blocks stained in any shade you like, too.
  • Easy to clean - You only need to sweep and mop regularly and you don’t have to worry about persistent stains or the cumbersome task of cleaning grouts. Plus, dust and dirt will have nowhere to hide, making parquet floors perfect if you have pets or young children, or if you suffer from allergies.
  • Budget-friendly - Parquet floors can suit almost any budget out there. The wide range of wood types, block sizes, patterns, etc. allows for the cost to be adjusted based on your personal needs. What’s more, parquet is an extremely durable type of flooring and can last far longer than other wooden floors.

Frequently asked questions

  • Q: How long will my parquet floor last?

    A: It depends on the type of wood and finish, but with proper maintenance, parquet flooring can last up to 10-15 years. You can prolong its lifespan with occasional sanding and resealing to make it look as good as new.

  • Q: Can you restore parquet flooring without sanding?

    A: While sanding is the best option to bring wooden floors back to life, buffing and recoating can do the trick if they're not heavily damaged. This is a more gentle procedure that doesn't call for the full removal of the finish.

  • Q: Do I need to prepare for the service in any way?

    A: It helps to acclimatise the parquet blocks to the room. This can be done by leaving them in open boxes or piles in the room about two weeks before the fitting will take place. This will let the blocks adjust to the temperature and moisture levels.

  • Q: Where can I fit parquet flooring?

    A: You can install parquet in pretty much any room of the house. Just keep in mind that engineered parquet with a lacquered finish is best for highly humid rooms.

  • Q: Can damaged parquet flooring be repaired?

    A: Yes, it's possible. The affected blocks can be replaced and the whole surface can be sanded and refinished to restore the floor's look.

  • Q: Can parquet flooring be refinished?

    A: Yes, refinishing parquet is entirely possible. The expert can easily sand, recoat, and polish your wooden floor.

  • Q: Which is better, parquet or laminate flooring?

    A: It depends entirely on your needs and preferences. Compared to laminate, parquet flooring is longer-lasting, more durable, allows for a specific pattern to be achieved, and can be restored. However, it's also more expensive to get initially. Laminate is a good budget solution if you want the look of wood and aren't too worried about damaging it.

  • Q: Which areas do you service?

    A: We work anywhere within the London M25 area. You can schedule your free parquet on-site survey at any time by using our simple online booking form or GoFantastic app.
