The possible types of parquet laying

The types of parquet laying

The properties of a parquet floor can be positively influenced by the type of parquet installation. There are several ways to lay a parquet floor. When choosing the type of parquet installation, we pay equal attention to the conditions and your wishes. If structurally possible, any type of parquet installation is permitted.

Full-surface bonding

The full-surface bonding improves the room and footfall sound. The two values decrease because the parquet floor is glued (connected) to the subfloor. This results in less "noise" when moving on or over the parquet floor.

The walking feeling is made more pleasant by the laying method and there are no annoying creaking noises when you move on the surface. The full-surface gluing makes it easier to renovate the parquet floor if this should become necessary, and this laying technique is also ideal for underfloor heating.

A further advantage is that it can be laid continuously, which means that no joints need to be formed in door frames. Full-surface gluing is used very frequently nowadays due to the structural conditions and is therefore perhaps the most frequently used type of parquet installation.

Suitable surfaces:

  • Cement screed
  • Anhydrite screed
  • Mastic asphalt
  • OSB installation boards and installation clamping plates (V100/E1)
  • Screed with underfloor heating

Strip bonding

Especially when the requirement is to improve or reduce walking comfort and impact sound, this is an excellent possibility. The impact sound can be reduced by up to 14 dB with the strip bonding. The elastic bonding creates a pleasant walking comfort. With the help of a whisper mat (thickness 3 mm), strip bonding is also suitable for so-called three-layer products. With solid parquet floors this is possible without a whisper mat.

Suitable surfaces:

  • Cement screed
  • Anhydrite screed
  • Mastic asphalt
  • OSB installation boards and installation clamping plates (V100/E1)

Floating installation

With this type of installation, the substrate must be dry, clean, level and firm. Old carpets must be removed and disposed of before laying (we will be happy to do the work for you). Existing glued PVC and linoleum coverings do not have to be removed and can remain in place. An important aspect is flatness. At a measuring point distance of one meter, the unevenness must not be larger than 2mm. If the unevenness is larger, the unevenness must be levelled out with a commercially available filler.

Suitable surfaces:

  • Cement screed
  • Anhydrite screed
  • Mastic asphalt
  • OSB installation boards and installation clamping plates (V100/E1)
  • Screed with underfloor heating

Laying by "nailing" the floor

In order to consider nailing, your chosen parquet floor must be solid wood, including a solid strip parquet or a solid plank floor. A solid parquet floor can be recognised by the fact that the entire parquet strip or floorboard consists of one type of wood. The most common types of wood are oak and beech.

Due to the laying method "nailing" it is possible to lay your parquet floor without the use of adhesives. The laying pattern can also be chosen according to your wishes. When laying on blind floors, it is best to correct a slight distortion of the solid planks. In the case of parquet floors subject to normal or medium stress, the installation on upholstered woods is chosen.

Suitable surfaces:

  • False floor
  • Upholstery woods

The appropriate type of installation will be discussed with you before the start of the installation work. If you need more information, please contact us!
