Parquet works (parquet laying) is a multistage laborious process that requires strict maintenance of sequence of technological operations.
An experienced technologist supervises all the stages of works (from taking measurements to delivery). Brigades are staffed with qualified experienced specialists.
The company’s competitive advantages are based on professional experience. Single balanced system of rational methods of parquet laying, professional materials and equipment help the company to remain one of the leading companies in the market of parquet works.
Complex approach to tackling different problems is guarantee of safety, longevity and beauty of parquet flooring of the company Art Parquet. Close collaboration between the company’s departments (production, design-studio and parquet brigades) guarantees cost optimization.
Own factory produces planks of high accuracy that joint each other ideally and create flooring that needs minimum sandpapering before applying lacquer. Special attention during the production of artistic elements is paid to accurate adjustment and fixing of each plank and inlay. During the production of massive board the attention is paid to selection of optimal proportions of the profile.
All artistic elements are checked in terms of adjustment at the factory before delivering to the site. This allows controlling products’ accuracy and quality and reduces requirements to the qualification of parquet layers in case parquet laying is made not by the company’s specialists.
During design-engineering wood species are chosen taking into consideration aesthetic and physical parameters (density, hardness, stability). The compositions are made in accordance with geometry, style and technical possibilities of the factory. The choice of parquet installation method is based on competent combination of installation technology and material properties.
