Veneer parquet mainly has advantages
Parky veneer parquet has a multi-layer structure. This has many advantages compared to traditional parquet, laminate or vinyl. We are pleased to explain the most important advantages here.
The 4 major advantages of Parky veneer parquet
Ultra-strong and scratch-resistant
Parky veneer parquet is made from a layer of real wood on top of a high density fibreboard (HDF). This makes veneer parquet better at withstanding impact and more stable than solid or semi-solid parquet. Furthermore, the new titanium finish further reinforces your floor against scratches and intensive usage.
Can you imagine a life without spills? Anyone who lives with small children or pets knows that life is not so simple. However, there’s no need to worry as the Parky veneer parquet has got your back. The watertight surface of each plank means it has optimum protection against stains or spills, if you wipe them off within 12 hours. This makes Parky just as easy to look after as vinyl or laminate.
The warmth of real wood
Each Parky plank is finished with a top layer made from authentic wood. Do you want oak, walnut, teak, or something else? The choice is yours! Just as with a solid wooden floor, no two planks are the same. This creates a lovely natural look, combined with the cosy warmth of wood.
A sustainable choice
Wood is an expensive natural material that we should use sparingly. That is why we only use a fine layer of wood as the finish on our veneer parquet. It means that we need 25 times less wood for the production of our veneer parquet, compared to solid parquet. Furthermore, each tree that we use for our parquet floors comes from sustainably managed forests. The unique composition of each plank – including the HDF core – means they are also 100% recyclable.
Are there any disadvantages to veneer parquet?
Parky veneer parquet has the same advantages as solid parquet. However, there is one exception. The layer of veneer on a Parky floor is only 0.6 mm thick which means that you cannot re-sand it. Parky collections with a 2-mm top layer can be sanded several times. You should remember that this is an intensive and expensive job, because the finish – colours, varnishes, waterproofing, etc. – all have to be redone.
However, you will have enjoyed your Parky floor for many years before you need to do this. Furthermore, you can install a completely new Parky floor (0.6 mm) for the same amount as it costs to refresh your old parquet. Trends and your own personal taste may change, so Parky will help you with your new choice.
