Ready-to-lay parquet in the finest oak

The herringbone parquet is normally delivered and laid raw with only a sanded surface. The person laying the floor must then carefully sand and varnish or oil the floor several times. The effort is immense, as is the drying time or the waiting time until the floor can be walked on. Odours due to fresh treatment are obviously also unavoidable.

The Dielenschmiede offers you so much more. With us you can choose from different structures as well as a wide selection of colours. Our colours and surface treatments are harmless health wise, they don’t smell, and are of course possible to walk on immediately after being laid.

Find out more about Parquet – Herringbone Parquet

Parquet has been used for centuries in old castles and mansions. Usually in prominent rooms and halls where the social status of the owner could be demonstrated to high-ranking guests. The herringbone parquet is currently experiencing a renaissance. The herringbone pattern with its timeless elegance has re-established itself in recent times and has once again become a favourite for any kind of house.

Construction and installation of parquet

The Dielenschmiede produce this regal flooring in large-format bars and primarily in solid oak. In the case of very large herringbone formats we also offer the parquet in the multi-layer engineered version. Installation on under-floor heating is possible without any problems. Herringbone parquet must have a load-bearing screed as a substructure, or alternatively a stable wooden subfloor. A squared timber substructure with spaces in between does not work, as the relatively short herringbone planks cannot take on a static function. You need a full surface on which the herringbone can be glued, nailed or screwed through the tongue. Before the 1900s and even later, herringbone parquet was layed on a wooded underconstruction. Plywood of modern quality and format was not available at this time. Up until the 1970s, parquet was mostly fixed with highly toxic bitumen adhesive. Just as an aside, in case you find black, musty smelling adhesive around the edges of your old parquet. For the sake of your health this should be removed immediately.

Impact sound under parquet flooring

We would like to briefly explain the subject of impact sound in the case of parquet as an example of our cottage flooring and chateau flooring, due to the frequently recurring questions around this issue. Probably due to the now common practice of laying laminate style flooring with click-systems, the layman often thinks that an acoustic underlay directly under the floor is required. However, in the case of fixed (glued/screwed/nailed) wooden flooring an extra layer of acoustic underlay directly under the floor is not necessary as generally a better and more effective impact sound insulation is applied below the screed or wood substructure, above the cement. This is usually in the form of e.g. Sterodur, softboard, bedding, hemp or coconut slabs, etc. Through this form of acoustic insulation, the resultant “drum effect” which occurs with loose-laid flooring is not an issue and there is much better acoustic insulation as a result. In the case of laminate flooring with acoustic mats underneath, there is generally still the issue of the “click-clack effect” which everyone who has stepped across such a floor in hard-soled or high-heeled shoes will recognise.
