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:
1. It is less affected by moisture and temperature
Oak parquet flooring is not as affected by moisture and temperature as a solid wood floor. Moisture and cold can cause wood to swell, and heat and dryness can cause it to shrink, but thanks to the different layers at 90 degree angles, movement in the wood is reduced.
2. Avoid cold feet
The stability of the three layers means you can lay underfloor heating beneath a parquet floor, which is not recommended for a solid wood floor.
3. High stability and balance
The top layer is called the wear layer, and underneath is an advanced body that absorbs impact and guarantees the high stability of the floor. The bottom layer of ecologically certified wood gives each board perfect balance.
4. Oak parquet flooring is cheaper
The two bottom layers can be made of cheaper types of wood because they are not visible below the surface. This means that oak parquet flooring is often cheaper than solid oak flooring.
5. It is easy to lay parquet flooring yourself
Thanks to Pergo’s innovative PerfectFold™ click system, parquet flooring is easy to lay yourself, even without previous experience and special tools.
