The substrate for laying wood
A good parquet installer must first ensure the quality of the substrate on which the wooden boards are to be laid.
There are two main situations
- laying parquet on existing ceramic, marble or granite floor
- laying parquet by overaying a previous wooden floor
- laying on a newly created concrete screed
In the case of renovations we often find ourselves in the first case, due to the customer's wish to transform a tile floor into a wooden floor.
In the second case, the end customer wants to renew the tones or surfaces, still using a parquet floor, but perhaps with more up-to-date colours.
In the case of new construction, it is almost always the case that the floor has to be laid on a new screed made especially for wood.
Of course, in addition to these two cases, there are many others, for example:
- Installation of parquet on a slab
- laying on sand and boards
