At our place, you have the choice between several types of parquet: solid wood, engineered wood, SPC vinyl, laminate, floating, etc. If the color and appearance of the board are very obvious selection criteria, other parameters must be taken into account.
Made up of solid wood slats that fit together using a system of tongues and grooves, solid parquet is undoubtedly one of the oldest floor coverings. Timeless, its natural appearance continues to attract fans in Quebec – and all over the world as well. At first glance, it may seem expensive but it is an excellent long-term investment since it is very resistant, easy to maintain, and durable. The most important thing is to choose the right species of wood according to the desired color, grain, and hardness. If oak is very popular, cherry, maple and walnut are equally effective.
This type of floor consists of 3 layers:
In appearance, it is very difficult to tell the difference between solid parquet and engineered parquet. But the latter stands out for its greater stability.
Unlike the two types of flooring mentioned above, the laminate, laminate, or floating floor does not have the regulatory wood layer of at least 2.5 mm but rather a layer made of post-consumer materials. Its blades clip together thanks to a glue-free assembly system. To reproduce the appearance of a wooden floor, resistant imitation paper is laid just below the resin wear layer which ensures the robustness of the floor. Its biggest advantage: is the large choice of patterns and colors. It is also the least expensive of the floors. Its price varies between $1.75 and $3.50 per square foot.
Increasingly popular, engineered wood flooring consists of different layers of wood that are glued together. It is equipped with a wear layer for an aesthetic look and better resistance to various attacks such as scratches and humidity. It is even able to withstand temperature fluctuations, which is why it is particularly suitable for kitchen and bathroom floors. The CLIC-engineered floor is practically identical but it has a click-locking system.
The SPC vinyl plank is a modern synthetic product that can imitate different forms of flooring: tiles, marble, ceramics, and of course wooden parquet. It allows you to choose the colors and patterns you want for your flooring. Resistant and easy to maintain, the SPC is also an economical solution.
If the quality of the floor itself is of great importance, the success of the installation is just as important. It is therefore recommended to call on an expert to have an aesthetic and durable floor covering. Flooring suppliers in Saint-François will take care of laying your planks according to the rules. It is a solution that allows you to save time and have a rendering of professional quality.
