Tongue and Groove Parquet

Tongue and Groove flooring is that that has a tongue on one side and groove on another, to enable joining between different planks. This is the most common joining method, and makes self-installation much easier. To fit parquet blocks together, you simply insert the tongue into the groove of the next block.

The tongue and groove join adds stability, making a floor almost impossible to move unintentionally with use when laid. These joints can also be glued when installing the floor for even more stability and that extra peace of mind if you have high footfall or children running around.

A guide on the method of installing parquet flooring (floating, adhesive or nailing) is available on each product page under the ‘installation’ tab. It is extremely easy for any DIY enthusiast or beginner to fit tongue and groove parquet flooring using any of these methods, and the method depends on the preference of the fitter, but we recommend a floating floor for those new to the practice to reduce errors. Higher traffic areas should use a more stable method, such as glueing or nailing.

We recommend using an underlay under any tongue and groove floor, as this can cushion it as well as extend the life of the floor by up to 15 years. We also recommend a concrete subfloor with a damp proof membrane over it (sometimes included within the underlay) for best results and greater longevity.
