Are all types of parquet suitable for underfloor heating
We recommend against choosing a solid parquet floor if you want to combine a wooden floor with underfloor heating. Instead we advise engineered or multi-layered parquet floor. This is more stable than solid wood. It will shrink, expand or warp much less with changes in temperature or air humidity.
Engineered parquet consists of a number of layers of wood laid square to each other. With some types the bottom layers consist of coniferous wood, with others this is board material such as plywood or compressed wood fibre (HDF). The top layer is solid oak. This provides a very stable parquet floor with the beauty of authentic wooden planks.
