Parquet Laying on Existing Floors

Parquet glue laying is carried out by laying the glue with a special spatula on the existing floor. In order to allow the natural expansion of the wooden floor, due to the variation of environmental humidity conditions, an expansion joint is left around the perimeter of the paved area.
If our customer chooses this type of glue laying it will be necessary to know all the details that will ensure its perfect performance, analyzed below.

Rigid Flooring

We will need to verify the solidity of the existing floor on which the parquet will be laid, checking the perfect adhesion to the underlying substrate. When tapping on ceramic or stone there should be no “void” sound, as this would mean that the flooring is detached from the screed creating instability problems for the parquet floor. Once the floor solidity is verified, we will proceed to use a honing machine that will remove the surface layer: its smoothness would prevent the perfect adhesion of the parquet glue.

Soft Flooring

We will need to remove the existing pavement, completely eliminating all traces of glue and after checking the solidity of the screed we will proceed with gluing the parquet wood.

Old Wooden Floors

We will need to verify the stability and humidity content of the existing wooden flooring, then we will proceed with a smoothing procedure aimed at eliminating all traces of paint, wax, oil and irregularities. Then we will glue the parquet wood, but in a transversal position compared to the pre-existing flooring, this in order to eliminate the risk of junctions overlapping.
