A alternative to a floating floor: gluing down parquet on a screed using adhesive
Installing Parky veneer parquet as a floating floor is the simplest method if you want to do the job yourself.
It is fast and simple because of the handy tongue and groove system. If you would prefer to glue down your multi-layer parquet to the screed, this is also an option.
What is the best way to glue down a parquet floor as a floating floor?
If you want to glue down your veneer parquet, you first need to clean the screed very well. You should also make sure that it has dried properly and is completely level. If there are any irregularities in the surface underneath, you may occasionally need to apply an epoxy moisture screen, a primer, or a floor levelling compound before you start to lay your parquet.
When you glue down parquet using adhesive, you glue the sections of the floor directly to the surface. A notched trowel is used to spread the special parquet adhesive onto the screed. The planks are then clicked into each other and laid on top of the adhesive. This type of installation requires more skill, which is why we usually recommend leaving this job to a professional.
