Glued or floating?The glued installation is mainly used for mosaic tiles - as well as for 15 mm thick planks. It requires a flat, rigid and healthy support. The glue can be applied either on the floor or as a backing for tiles. Floating installation is faster - only the grooves and tabs being glued - and allows the installation of an insulating layer. It is suitable for slats, long or short, and certain mosaic tiles.
Two types of parquetFor floating laying, there are essentially two types of parquet. The veneered laminates consist of a solid wood facing glued on a medium or chipboard support. The more expensive and better laminated laminates have a lower layer of pine, a central layer of pine or fir strips and a solid wood siding; they exhibit remarkable resistance to swelling and deformation.
