Positive properties and advantages of solid wood floors.
Eco-friendliness: Solid wood is a completely natural material that does not contain harmful chemicals.
Genuine and natural material: Each parquet board has its unique texture and hue, making every floor unique.
Aesthetics and beauty: The natural texture and hue of wood add warmth and character to the interior.
Long lifespan: If properly maintained, solid wood floors can last for several generations.
Low footfall noise: Solid wood floors produce minimal footfall noise, and objects falling on them don't produce impact noise. Solid wood floors offer a pleasantly quiet solution.
Good thermal conductivity: Dense wooden parquets, such as oak and ash, conduct heat well and are suitable for underfloor heating.
Large sanding margin: Over time, solid wood floors can be sanded and refinished several times due to their generous sanding allowance, removing wear marks and restoring a new appearance. It is also possible to change the floor tone after every sanding.
Foot-friendly: Wooden floors are comfortable and warm underfoot, offering a pleasant walking experience.
Healthy choice: Wood doesn't accumulate dust or allergens, making it a good choice for allergy sufferers.
High value: Solid wood floors often enhance the value and attractiveness of real estate.
Sustainability: Many solid wood floors come from sustainable forestry, contributing to environmental preservation.
Wide range of choices: Different types of wood, sizes, and patterns provide an opportunity to find the most suitable solution for any interior.
When installing for underfloor heating, avoid using large format boards. Also, the right chemical products, such as leveling compounds, primers, and adhesives, should be selected for solid wood floor installation.
Certain wood types, like beech, Canadian maple, jatoba, and acacia, are not suitable for underfloor heating installation. Also, using too thick softwood floorboards isn't a good idea as the thermal resistance would be too high. Especially low thermal resistance is provided by dense wood thin solutions of 8-10mm such as mosaic parquets, industrial parquets, lamella parquets, and strip parquets.
Teak ship deck is excellent for damp spaces, such as bathrooms, because teak wood doesn't rot. However, it's essential to note that frequent contact with cleaning chemicals, especially under the shower, requires the ship deck to undergo more frequent maintenance.
