Wood-effect stoneware floor: the joints
This type of stoneware tile can have different types of surface graphics: wood , marble , concrete , stone and resin effect . If you install that wood effect you must pay close attention to the joints (parquet is a continuous flooring and does not have any). They must never exceed 2 mm, especially if the laid material is ground laminate flooring in Baytown, TX.
Parquet or stoneware: why choose parquet
Parquet is a warm floor in winter and cool in summer. Many are fascinated by the beauty and natural effect that this coating is capable of giving to the rooms of the home.
Below is list the advantages of parquet :
it is certainly a precious material with which refined and welcoming environments can be created
offers an effect of continuity thanks to the installation without joints
there are different types of wood and many laying techniques, this allows you to design a unique and personalized home
to last longer it can be painted or oiled . The paint gives it greater strength and can last for many years. It is a surface layer that gives a tone to the parquet but if it is damaged, the damage / scratch remains clearly visible. An oil finish, on the other hand, is much more natural but the parquet must be subjected to constant maintenance
it is a natural and sustainable material
parquet has very high insulating capabilities
this type of flooring allows you to walk barefoot. Definitely relaxing practice that transmits psychic and physical beneficial properties. Being a “warm” floor, children can play on the ground without having the problem of feeling cold.
Wood effect floor: laminated or pre-finished parquet
Let me make a clarification immediately: by pre-finished parquet we mean real wood , laid without joints and therefore a continuous floor is obtained. The parquet laminate , however, is not real wood (followed by a separate post that will explain the differences between laminate, PVC and LVT), is a kind of imitation parquet.
GLUED LAYING- it means that the chosen floor is glued to the ground with an adhesive and can no longer be removed except by breaking it all.
SOLID PARQUET- floor entirely in essence, taken entirely from a tree trunk, in noble essence for all its thickness.
