Parquet Flooring Installation

Herringbone floors have rich history as a traditional floor pattern in Europe. It can be installed in several configurations, with or without a border. A popular variation of the herringbone, called Chevron or French herringbone, is prominent in many prestigious European Chateaus.

We can also supply and install floor medallions and parquet borders for a truly unique finish.

Parquet flooring is laid on site. For the best results, the herringbone is installed by glue-down or a combination of nail-down and glue-down in the design of your choice. Herringbone pieces have grooves on three sides and one tongue on the long side. It all starts with proper milling, more-so with a herringbone than with any other pattern. If multiple fillet widths do not exactly add up to the fillet length the pattern will be impossible to maintain. A&D Designer Floors uses laser-guided precision equipment that are calibrated regularly to maintain consistent dimensions. The floor is then sanded and finished with either a lacquer, oil or stain to protect the floor and enhance the beauty of the wood.
