How can we help you?

  • For Parquetvinyl, we recommend office chair castors that are suitable for hard floors. It is essential to clean the castors regularly. Small pieces of grit may get caught in the castors and cause scratches. As this is a frequent problem, we recommend an office chair mat.

  • Parquetvinyl may be cleaned with a domestic steam cleaner. Use it at its lowest power and with a suitable soft pad. Do not use the steam cleaner on the same part of the floor for more than 5 minutes and always follow the instructions of the steam cleaner’s manufacturer. Here you will find more information about the maintenance of Parquetvinyl.

  • Fit the kitchen first and then install the floor around it. After all, Parquetvinyl requires a floating installation and should remain floating. Heavy units would fix the floor in place. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • Yes! The subfloor should be stable, flat, and dust-free. If the OSB boards are secured, this is no problem at all. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • No! Parquetvinyl has a robust clicking system and should not be glued. Here you can download the installation instructions.

  • Subflooring for parquet or laminate is quite thick and foamy. This is not suitable for Parquetvinyl. You need a sturdy subfloor that is not compressible. If the wrong subfloor is used, the click connection will come under too much pressure and may break over time, causing the planks to loosen. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • Yes, that is possible! Always follow the system’s installation instructions. A system with both room and floor sensors is most suitable. When setting the thermostat, both the ambient and surface temperatures must be taken into account. This is because of condensation. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • Parquetvinyl requires a floating installation and needs to be able to keep moving in the room. Of course, this is barely noticeable. Always leave a space of 8 mm all around the room. The skirting boards will cover this space. In some places, such as around a toilet, it is not possible to install skirting boards. It those cases, apply a line of elastic silicone. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • The subfloor must be dry, clean, hard and smooth. It may have irregularities with a tolerance of 5 mm over a length of 3 m. The floor may not slope in any direction by more than 25 mm per 2 m. Even though Parquetvinyl is water-resistant, it does not serve as a moisture barrier. Any loose boards must be fixed, cracks in concrete must be filled. Read all the conditions in the installation instructions.

  • You need just seven simple tools, namely a cutter, spirit level, pencil, expansion blocks, folding rule, rubber mallet and a striking block. Discover here how to install Parquetvinyl.

  • We have matching skirting boards in the same look for each collection. Of course, you can also choose a paintable skirting board that you can paint to match the walls.

  • It is important to distinguish between uneven floors and sloping floors. For an uneven floor, there is a tolerance of 5 mm over 3 metres. If you lay a long slat on the floor, any open space you may see under the slat must not exceed 5 mm. For sloping floors, the slope must not exceed 25 mm over 2 metres. For example, if the room is 4 metres long (in the sloping direction), the slope must not exceed 50 mm. If the slope of the floor is too great, there will be too much pressure on the clicking system, which could cause it to break. Discover here how to install Parquetvinyl.

  • That is not a good idea! The base layer should be fixed (glued or nailed), and this is probably not the case with laminate. You must first remove the laminate and any subfloor. Discover here how to install Parquetvinyl.

  • No! This type of subfloor is too soft, thick and airy. The subfloor for Parquetvinyl should be very thin, sturdy, and not compressible. Discover here how to install Parquetvinyl.

  • Although Parquetvinyl can be installed with underfloor heating, there are a few things to remember, of course. To begin with, you should always follow the instructions for the heating system. It is also important to ensure that the surface temperature never exceeds 28°C, and the temperature should be evenly distributed all around. Is it an electric or hot water system? This also plays an important role. Make sure you have all the information you need! Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • In most cases, Parquetvinyl can be installed on the existing floor. The subfloor should be stable, flat, and clean. Any unevenness or deep joints must be levelled first. The subfloor should not be compressible, like carpet for example. If you install Parquetvinyl on a wooden floor, any loose planks must first be secured. Parquetvinyl should not be installed on top of a floating floor such as laminate: it requires a solid base. Discover here how to install Parquetvinyl.

  • All the instructions and a video about installing Parquetvinyl can be found here.

  • All collections already have an integrated underlay. This means that you don’t need a separate subfloor - in fact, you must not use one. The integrated underlay will neutralise or partly neutralise any unevenness. However, the main advantage is that a subfloor will reduce walking noise.

  • Certainly! In a newly built home, we recommend first installing the kitchen and then the floor. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • Certainly! Parquetvinyl is 100% waterproof and suitable for bathrooms. The children are free to go wild. Just make sure you rub the floor dry within 24 hours. Stagnant water could seep through the joints and cause problems (mould, problem odours, etc.). Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • No. The carpet must be removed first. Then the subfloor must be made levelled and any glue residues, dust, etc. must be cleaned away. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • You should always leave expansion gaps of 8 mm between the floor and the wall. This is not necessary when connecting to another room. Parquetvinyl can be laid continuously for up to 400m² or 20 running metres. Read all the conditions in the installation instructions.

  • No, Parquetvinyl does not contain any plasticisers or phthalates, as they are known. That means that no harmful substances are emitted, ensuring optimal indoor air quality. This makes it a people-friendly and environmentally-friendly product.

  • It is 100% water-resistant, easy to install, low maintenance and can be installed on large areas without profiles (up to 400m²). It does not require acclimatisation, is suitable for any room, has an excellent acoustic rating and has low VOC* emissions. (*VOC= the emission of volatile organic compounds that may affect the healthy indoor climate of homes)

  • Yes, it is! Rubber may contain substances that react with vinyl and cause irreversible colour changes. So be careful with the rubber wheels of trolleys, bicycles, etc. We also advise you to use doormats without rubber undersides.

  • The wear class refers to a general classification system for carpet, vinyl, laminate, and parquet flooring to describe the type of environment where the floor can be used. For example, class 32 is suitable for residential to light commercial use, class 33 for residential to intensive commercial use, and class 34 for residential to very intensive commercial use.

  • Parquetvinyl is barely 4-7,5 mm thick with an integrated underlay. This means that it is possible to install Parquetvinyl on an existing floor without having to modify the doors. Here you will find more information about the installation of Parquetvinyl.

  • The exceptionally realistic decors are based on some smart technology. Did you know that Parquetvinyl consists of up to 70% limestone, mixed with about 25% PVC? During production, the different layers are compressed into a strong, thin plank. No adhesive is used here. The surface texture is surprisingly real! Some collections have a synchronous wood structure. So if you see a knot or a wood grain in the decor, you can feel it too, at exactly the same place. The click system is experienced as one of the easiest in the market. It provides fast and easy installation and seams guaranteed to be watertight. Most floors have an integrated IXPE subfloor. This only has advantages: any small irregularities are neutralised, you can lay the floor far more quickly, the sound is muted and of course you don’t need to purchase an extra sub-floor.

  • Parquetvinyl and laminate have a very different composition. Parquetvinyl consists of up to 70% limestone, approximately 25% PVC and less than 1% additives and pigments. Laminate flooring is based on wood fibres and has a high plasticiser content. This also explains why it moves more under the influence of heat. A small summary of the advantages that Parquetvinyl has versus ordinary laminate flooring: 100% waterproof, can be installed in large surfaces without profiles (up to 400 m²), does not require acclimatisation, suitable for every room, good acoustic performance, low VOC emissions.

  • Although Parquetvinyl looks like real parquet, it does not contain wood. It has a unique composition and contains up to 70% limestone. This makes it extremely robust, water-resistant, and suitable for any room. Although parquet is an entirely natural product, which gives it its exceptional character, some of its limitations are that it is not water-resistant, requires a lot of maintenance, and is more expensive.

  • Unlike regular vinyl, Parquetvinyl is hardly affected by heat and direct sunlight. It is much more stable. Moreover, Parquetvinyl does not contain plasticisers, so that the air quality in the room is not affected.
