FINISHING PRODUCTS


The ultimate beauty of your parquet will depend on the finishing touch. The parquet must be protected and several means are available: vtrification or varnish, oils, waxes and oils-waxes.

Vitrification or varnish
Vitrification can be seen as a strong and lasting finishing procedure. A wide range of products exists, depending on the frequency of passing through. From the “intense traffic”to the softer ones, these products exist as mono-or-bi-components, most often in watery phase. The colour of the wood will be more or less changed depending on the type of vitrification.

Oils
An oiled wooden floor has a very soft natural aspect. It requires more care than a vitrified parquet, but it can be retouched easily should a scratch or accident occur. An oiled parquet requires an adequate process for its maintenance and it must be re-oiled on a more or less regular basis, depending on the frequency of passing through. Oil tends to warm up the wood (more golden in case of oak). However, some oils will not at all modify the wood’s natural colour.

Waxes
Being more fragile, water-sensitive, they require a very regular maintenance.

Oil-waxes
Mid-way between oils and waxes, they are more resistant as they contain a hardener.

FLOOR HEATING

Is wooden parquet compatible with floor heating?
Without going into details about the technical constraints, there is no contra-indication in getting a wooden floor, provided that the very strict CSTC rules for laying as for selecting woods are adhered .Besides, we present a wide range of semi-solid parquet floors specifically adapted to floor heating.

FLOOR LAYING

Here are the most important rules to apply before laying:
-The base must be dry, flat and clean.
-The screed must have a humidity rate less than 2.5%.
-The hygrometry rate in the air must be between 30 and 60%.
-The rooms shall be heated at 18° C.
