Interior Wood flooring
Interior Wood flooring are included inside the pavements or light coatings. Its use was generalized from the sixteenth century, although it was restricted, due to its price, to the high nobility or incipient bourgeoisie.
The difference between pallet and parquet is confused, due to the extended term, its geographical differences of use and the names that have subsequently adopted over time. It is possible to establish as main difference the system of placement and the size of the mud, being greater in widths and lengths in the platform.
The types of wood used in parquet floors vary in color and texture, the most common being maple, mahogany, cherry, walnut, pine, oak, jatoba and merbau.
As its name indicates, it is composed of solid planks of wood, with lengths of up to 220 cm and widths of up to 25 cm, it is also known as solid or traditional floorboards, where the standard thickness is 15 mm to 22 mm, or even more. The basic difference between the parquet and the stage is the long and wide, the solid platform or solid parquet, is wider and longer.
Its most common installation requires a wooden guide, or track, attached to the hearth by cement or adhesives. On the track, the platform is nailed, it is also common, as the tails and adhesives improve, this material is stuck, in both cases, always tongue and groove.
It is a very long-lived material, it is common to find it with more than 100 years. Its maintenance is similar to that of the parquet, in relation to the stabbing and varnishing, at the moment without smell and barely dust, but usually it needs carpentry works in the change of pieces. The ability to cushion the footprints makes it valued among basketball players to avoid damage to the joints.
On the negative side, its price, high compared to other choices of parquet floors, and over time tends to make noise, which varies from pleasant to annoying. This can be mitigated by injecting polyurethane foam, although it is difficult to eradicate it.
In relation to styles, because of its price, it is not the most popular of the options, although it is the longest, there is a strong demand, due to the rehabilitation of the city centers.
In Spain, melix or melis pine was very popular due to its anticarcoma characteristics, in addition to its beautiful vein, currently due to its price, is replaced by new pine melis, similar, but much cheaper.
The term Parquet is a galicismo that describes the long squares in diagonal that were used in the Palace of Versailles in 1684, like parquet of menuiserie (carpentry parquet).
As for the maintenance, when the wooden floors deteriorate they can be stabbed. This process consists of a physical abrasion of the wood by which the upper portion of the pavement is removed until the varnishes, stains and scrapes present on the pavement are removed. Once the appearance of the wood has been homogenized, some protective material, usually varnishes, is applied.
