one thing I do know is that you MUST open the packets of parquet in the place where they are going to be laid and left to absorb the ambient humidity for a few days. Unskilled workers don't do this. I know because I saw 150M2 of newly laid parquet being removed and thrown out in a house I was working at. This was even written on the packaging.

Depends upon the installer

I mean i have first 70 m2 to do .....i still not have choice if i put laminate or wood ?

look at laminate at a store and then look at wood and I think that will answer it for you


don't you thinck real wood will move with moist or dry weather......i will put also parket in kitchen...and bathroom

Unless the kitchen is contiguous with the other room that will be covered, why ask for trouble....bathroom, you are definitely asking for trouble

I have also the stairs to finish ! 18 stairs to cover with wood or shera ! do you thinck i can glu the wood on the stair without screw it ?

Yes, it is possible IF your wood contractor knows how to do it


Here are some pictures of the completed floor:

Here are some pictures that were submitted by my "consultant" showing me how wood floors should be installed. Fortunately he found a wood contractor that was able to eliminate the complicated "troughs" seen in the pictures and just "glue" the boards to the concrete floor

Thanks for the pics !!!


I have teak wood outside since 2 or 3 years and it doesn't move ..no muschroom...green things...termite or something else !


I think teak and bamboo can be use in wet rooms without probléme if its glue on ! and then oil...and not varnish

its so beautiful ! and warm ambiance...and in more i will put the wood parket in my own bathroom wih bath tub and no shower...so it will be not so much water on floor

I'm stiil searching for the working time on parket !!!

Just a few points on wood floors if I may. All wood expands and contracts with the changes in humidity and temperature,some woods more than others. With a solid nailed floor on joists it is usually cut and left as long as possible upside down to reach the ambient humidity (as with parquet) Then if being laid on concrete a bituminous glue is used to stop any moisture coming up from the concrete (Especially in Thailand where no plastic moisture barrier is used)
With the laminate flooring, if used it goes down on a layer of thin rubber like material with the absolute critical point that there must be at least 10m.m. gap all around the out-side of the floor which is usually covered by the skirting or a quad that is fixed to the wall only. Failing to do that will result in bubbles coming up at different spots. Trust me ! I saw a floor put down on Koh Samui at a friends resort where it was done right except where they screwed the sliding door tracks down through the floor, that had to come up and done right.
