One of our trade customers recently asked our team for advice regarding 2,152 sq. ft. of high quality engineered parquet floor he had recently installed into a Hollywood Hills’ home . The floor began to show signs of distress after the first season it was exposed to heating and some of the parquet panels had started bowing at the corners.
The installed floor was multilayer parquet with a 1/4 inch (6.5mm) thick top layer of white oiled oak with the grain direction diagonal to the panel edges. All panels had an 8mm deep 4 side groove and were installed using tongue and groove technique.
