Laying Of Oak Parquet Blocks in Rustic Grade in Harrow
The first step in every wood floor fitting project is the preparation. Our case was no exception – this step included measuring the moisture and humidity levels, if they are higher than acceptable we refuse to install the wood. According to the conditions we measure, we give our 2-year service guarantee. The wood material was suitable for this house, so we could proceed with the installation, once the blocks were left for a few days to acclimatize.
As you can see from the images, the pattern our clients chose was a herringbone with a double border around. This is one of the most popular ways to fit parquet flooring. The oak blocks in the rustic grade were installed overplied subfloor. Our team also had to trim off two of the doors and their frames, to adjust their height with the new floor level. The parquet blocks were unfinished so it had to be done on-site. The refinishing process is something our teams have vast experience with. First, the top layer of the blocks must be sanded, so they can soak better the finish. After 3 rows of sanding, the sawdust remains are collected and mixed with a resin filler, the new compound is used to fill the gaps between the blocks, which is going to insulate the construction and make it more stable. The next step is buffing – this process is making the surface smooth, and removes even if there are any small imperfections left. The last step is to apply the finish, this process is really important because it determines how the flooring is actually going to look. In this case, our clients had some doubts between hard wax-oil or lacquer, in the end, they decided to go with a hardwearing lacquer from Junckers. The entire project took 4 days to our team to be completed.
Quick-Step Laminate Installation in Harrow
These clients took advantage of our supply and fit option. As you probably already know we also supply a wide variety of materials from leading brands on the market. They preferred to bet on a quality choice, such as the laminates from Quick-Step. The laminate planks are not from real wood, but they are imitating it pretty well, an untrained eye will not be able to recognise the difference between it and a real oak. Another preference of our clients was to lift and dispose the carpets on their own.
When our team arrived, they had to inspect carefully the floorboards that will be used as a subfloor. After they made sure everything is okay with the boards, they started with the installation work, and the first step was to fit the underlay. Usually when we are laying a new flooring, trimming of the doors and their frames is necessary, this case was no exception. This is required to adjust their level with the new height of the floors. The whole job was completed for a single day and the results are remarkable.
Parquet Floor Installation in Harrow
What was the job?
The project required an installation of a beautiful parquet floor, followed by sanding and finishing of the newly installed floor and making the entire place look prettier and more elegant, while it feels cosier and more functional.
When it comes to real wood floor services, there are always some challenges that may arise during the process. Especially for the installation of real wood flooring, the preparation of the subfloor is crucial so a strong, lasting and durable flooring structure can be ensured. The subfloor must be completely dry, clean and level before the parquet floor is installed on top of it. It may also require the additional installation of underlayment before the parquet blocks are fitted down. Therefore, in order to make sure that the subfloor is in flawless condition and the floor can be installed on top of it, always make sure to have reliable and experienced specialists to do the job for you.
What we did?
We have started this project by inspecting the condition of the subfloor. In order to prepare it for the installation, we check the moisture content of the subfloor, make sure it is dry and clean, the level it is required. Next, we can continue with the installation of the wooden floor and guarantee that the flooring construction will be durable, hard-wearing and stable, lasting for many decades. When it comes to parquet flooring, we can offer years of experience in the field and our great expertise that ensures you will have the beautiful and symmetrical parquet pattern you have always dreamed of. Once the parquet floor is installed, we continue with sanding the surface of the floor.
We use an array of sanding machines to make sure we are not sanding against the grain and achieving a smooth and flawless surface that is ready to be lacquered. A lacquer floor finish is a great choice because it is highly protective and looks amazing, adding even more elegance to a classic parquet pattern. A few matching flooring accessories were needed and we have completed the project.
The bottom line
Parquet floors are truly beautiful. The elegance and uniqueness of the parquet pattern can add a lot of distinctive style to every home and office space. However, since the parquet patterns are so complex, this type of real wood flooring must be installed by professionals with experience and knowledge. This is the only way to ensure that you will get the best results possible and enjoy a durable floor that will last for many years to come.
