Replacement of a parquet floor
This project required the uplift of a water damaged teak finger parquet floor,
before replacing it with a traditional Oak herringbone parquet, as the customer wanted a different style.
Firstly, to prepare for the new floor,
we screeded to improve floor levels, then applied an epoxy-resin damp proof membrane.
This was added because it was a pre-1970’s house and so it didn’t have a damp proof membrane that a more modern house would have.
The membrane stops moisture travelling through the concrete, which can cause problems for wood floors, and so adds an extra layer of protection.
We followed this with another coat of screed to improve the floor levels further.
Finally, installed with a two-plank boarder, the floor was sanded and finished with 3 coats of bona lacquers.Back to projects
