Frequently Asked Questions
Is Engineered Parquetry Affordable?
There is no quick answer to that. Naturally, it depends on your budget for parquetry flooring. Engineered Parquetry is more affordable than solid timber parquetry. The prime reason for this is that they come pre-finished, therefore we do not have to do any sanding or coating after the floor has been laid.
Are there difference price ranges or budget options?
Engineered Parquetry in every range are very similar in price
Does engineered parquetry come pre-finished?
Yes, all our engineered parquetry are pre-finished in a matte or extra-matte finish. They are finished with 7 to 13 layers of lacquer and are UV cured for the longevity of your floor.
Is engineered parquetry floors hard wearing?
Yes, they are designed for modern living. Some companies advertise their engineered parquetry for both domestic and commercial use.
How long does engineered parquetry last?
Your engineered parquetry floor may last from 25 years to a lifetime.
Like every timber floor, it is about how you look after them. We recommend removing grit and grime regularly, not using too much water or chemicals. We have a simple care and maintenance program – click here.
Do I need to sand and polish engineered parquetry
Yes – eventually
We recommend that after approximately 7 – 10 years you contact PFC to inspect your floor. Usually, around this time, we recommend a topcoat. This means that the floor is lightly buffed and 1 coat of polish (coating) is applied. This will last another 5 – 10 years before it may require us to fully sand and apply 2-3 coats of polish. You then repeat this process.
It may seem complicated but broken down it will be 14 – 20 years before you have to do any major work on your floor.
