Wood Floors for Bathrooms & Walls
When choosing bathroom flooring, you have the same considerations as you do for flooring for other rooms in your house. Is it durable?
Will it stand up to the kids? Does it look nice or tacky? How does it feel under bare feet. But the main consideration for bathroom flooring is, of course, moisture.
Our Engineered wood parquet floor is great stuff. It's got a plywood base that holds up well against moisture. And it looks terrific because the
top layer is real wood. If you want the wood flooring look in a bathroom, engineered parquet floor is the best choice.
The layers are bonded together under heat and pressure, and stacked in opposite directions for strength and stability. In the bathroom, this means that
engineered wood has more dimensional strength and reacts less to humidity changes.
The range comes in a choice of some wood species that brave the humid conditions when are finished with our oils as merbau, oak , smoked oak ,
sucupira, thermo ash, teak, afromosia, jatoba, wenge provide an enhanced moisture resistance due to their low shrinkage and swelling potential.
To optimally prepare the new floor for the special requirements of bathrooms and wellness areas, a few basic rules must be followed: Spa parquet has
to be glued to the subfloor by a professional installer and sealed with permanently flexible joint filler around perimeter. The new parquet floor can also be laid over
underfloor heating and is oil-finished directly on site right after installation. The oil is absorbed into the wood pores without preventing the wood's ability to breathe.
This intense surface treatment is extremely valuable because it optimally protects the floor against moisture penetration. As well prepared as the floor is, standing water
or prolonged exposure to excessive air humidity in the room (above 70 percent) should be avoided nevertheless. It is therefore essential to wipe up puddles and air the
room regularly! Depending on the level of use and the condition of the floor surface, the floor should be re oiled from time to time.
As a special parquet floor for BATHROOMS we have MARITIME teak or teak marine & boat , finished with special silicone on every joint and oiled after
install. Same wood floor as in a luxury boat.
WE TRADE ALSO PANELS OR PARQUET PRE-FINISHED THAT CAN BE INSTALLED ON WALLS.
