For a long time, Scandinavian design has featured pine elements in walls, ceilings and furniture – but pine doesn't work particularly well in flooring. Solid pine flooring is too soft and thus easily damaged, and it also attracts dust – but there are other options for those who still want a pine floor.
Do you want an oak floor and can’t decide between solid timber and oak parquet? Here are five reasons to choose oak parquet flooring. Pergo’s oak parquet flooring is made of 100% wood, just like timber flooring, but it is constructed from three different layers instead of one solid layer of wood. This gives the floor several advantages.
Laying a wood floor with Pergo's click system isn’t difficult, even for a beginner. However, if you want to lay solid timber flooring, you should contact a professional floor-layer. But if you’ve had the good taste to choose a Pergo parquet floor, you can lay it yourself with nothing more advanced than a saw.
When you need to replace a floor it can be tempting to choose a cheap laminate floor instead of an expensive one. But is it really cheaper in the long term? Of course, laying a floor can entail a considerable cost – laminate flooring is available in all sorts of price ranges. However, when making this decision you should not only consider price, but also quality, durability and environmental friendliness, because these factors also affect the total cost in the long term.
If you want a quality parquet floor, we are here to help you. Pergo manufactures parquet flooring made of engineered hardwood. This means that the flooring consists of three layers of wood which are joined at right angles, adding extra impact resistance, balance and stability. Because wood is a living material that is affected by temperature and humidity, wood flooring can shrink when it is warm and dry and swell when it is cold and damp. However, when the floor is constructed from several layers in which the wood fibres run in different directions, this restricts the movements in the wood, resulting in a more stable floor.
