Parquet or floating floor is the one we usually find in most of the new homes, is made with strips, generally, of pine with a topsheet of a more noble wood. It is called "floating" because it is installed on a layer of insulation fiber, which means that it is not necessary to remove the previous floor, if there is one. Every 10 years, approximately, it needs a polishing and allows to add systems of heating like the radiant parquet.

The glued parquet is made with small boards of solid wood on a previously firm, flat and level ground. You will recognize it because it usually makes shapes or drawings like spikes, checkers or similar. It must be protected from the sun and, above all, from moisture.
