Wood specie specification
The use of Oak in flooring is very widespread, notably because of its excellent stability. It is prized for domestic use in temperate climates. Oak is a wood with character, both classic and timeless, which goes well with all types of decor. Monnin Hardness : between 3 and 4,5. Density : 700 kg/m3. Resistance to insects : good. Dimensional stability : medium. Oak sligthly shift over time.

This engineered flooring with aged finishes offers all the advantages of solid wood with affordable installation. It matches perfectly all type of decoration, no matter the color of the furnitures and walls.
The wood is brushed along the grain to remove its soft parts. The "brushed" finish makes the surface slightly irregular to the touch, so the wood's texture is highlighted. This finish works best in rooms where there is heavy traffic, because scratches and scrapes are less noticeable due to the floor's irregularity.
In the style of oldtime parquet, bevels can be hammered and are known as broken edges to give an unequal and irregular effect.
This technique is done by covering the wood surface with a smooth pigmented paste (usually white) to fill in the wood's open pores. The desired effect is a contrast between the colour of the applied paste and the wood's natural colour. This contrast can be enhanced by "brushing" the parquet.
XXL wide planks create the impression of a larger space. Other significant advantage : laying will be faster since one plank covers bigger surface.
Engineered multiplis flooring : Noble wood glued onto a multiply wood base of 6 layers of real wood. The main advantage of engineered wood flooring is its dimensional stability: the cross-ply construction means the wood is largely unaffected by swelling and does not warp significantly.
