The base is made of wood.
How to put a parquet Board on a wooden base? First, you need to remove the previous floor covering. When parquet is applied to old floors, a specialist should check their condition and make repairs.
Possible problems: the
surface is uneven;
the floorboards are wobbly;
the logs are rotten or not at the same level.
If the beams are rotten, they should be replaced and put in one horizontal level. After that, the floor is assembled from floorboards. You can use an old floorboard if it is well preserved.
Floorboards should not have large differences in level. Boards are firmly fixed to the beams to avoid their movement. After these events, you can start laying parquet.
The concrete base.
Concrete can serve as the basis for a parquet floor? If the concrete base is preserved, the procedure for restoring it is less complicated. The specialist gets rid of the previous coating, checks the condition of the concrete base. If cracks and uneven areas are found on the surface, they are primed or a self-leveling screed is used.
Is it correct to put a parquet Board on concrete? If the concrete surface is destroyed, remove it completely and fill in a new screed. Only after drying, the worker lays the parquet surface.
