Solid or parquet?

Which floor you choose depends largely on where it is intended to be installed, what type of underlay you have and how much space there is to build on. Where you have the possibility of laying the floor directly on joists we recommend one of our solid floors, usually those that are 25 mm and 30 mm thick respectively. If you have a concrete surface or some other type of floor base which does not allow a floor to be affixed with screws we recommend our parquet.

Remember to always add some kind of moisture barrier between the parquet and surface under the floor. An RF-test should be carried out by a trained individual before the floor is laid. If you have a concrete floor but enough room to build a raised platform on it first, you can lay a solid floor on it by first having a plywood surface of at least 15mm underneath. If you have a concrete floor you must have an appropriate moisture barrier against it. Then the floor is attached to the boards. Together they become one fluid unit. It is naturally also possible to have a parquet floor on plywood or some other even layer under the floor than concrete.

Our parquet pinewood floors are available in the same varieties as the solid pinewood floors. Finish and colour may vary somewhat between solid and parquet floors because of the difference in the method of manufacture, but the effect is the same. Our parquet floors have a tongue and groove feature which makes them very easy to lay.
