End-grain block wood flooring – Pavés de Paris: A manufacturer’s dream, a blessing for the consumer and an indestructible product that interior designers have long been waiting for. No gluing, no complicated installation. With a hardness that’s second to none.
Solid wood flooring – Traditional wood flooring is normally laid on a sub-structure that takes up a significant amount of space (ventilation cavity). It has been a drawback for the product, particularly in buildings from 1970s with their low ceiling heights. With the progress that has been made in laying techniques and the advent of the bonding method, solid wood floors are nowadays once again enjoying immense popularity because the sub-structure is no longer a requirement but merely an option, and solid wood floors can even be glued down in the form of wide planks.
Floating or glued wood flooring – Floating wood flooring was an answer to the problem of the sub-structure which not only demands more height but also makes the flooring more complicated and therefore more expensive to lay. Floating wood flooring is a product that can be laid directly on the sub-floor or a layer of insulation and merely involves gluing the planks together. This process is less demanding from a technical point of view which, in theory, makes installation less expensive. This type of flooring has a hardwood surface layer of just 2 to 4 mm thick.
Laminate – This is not real wood flooring but a wood imitation laid in a similar way to a floating wood floor. However, the product is only a photographic reproduction as it does not even have a wooden surface layer. Increasingly, click-type laminate floors are appearing on the market. These are predominantly aimed at the DIY segment as these products, which can often differ widely in terms of design, can be laid without the need for any technical skills. Although laminate or melamine floors can provide the look of wood flooring at a low price, high-quality laminate, of course, is also relatively expensive.
