Stock handling in the yard

This is a photo of the storage looking tidy and looking good! Here you see how the parquet is tipped into large crates where they are kept under cover and ventilated, keeping jobs separate. Eventually the wood block is processed - grading each block to check that the size is consistent and any badly damaged block is rejected.

However we retain block with scratches etc. because once the sanding is completed, the marks will all be gone, and it makes no environmental sense to destroy something perfectly useable. Once the grading and calculating of area is done, the pallets are shrink-wrapped, strap-banded and labelled ready for sale.

New at Parquet-Parquet - Chevron Beech Block!

Chevron Parquet Block
We are always looking to improve our range here at Parquet-Parquet and therefore we have recently been working on supplying a lovely chevron parquet block, in reclaimed beech, with tongue and groove sides and with a very clean underside. The effect is fabulous and French in design style. For those looking for something a bit different, this might be it!

Beech has an interesting pale colour tone with a slightly pinkish tinge and a nice, generally even grain. It is an excellent timber for a modern floor, especially if you want something sustainable, which this is. All our timber is reclaimed in the UK and hand-graded by us here at Parquet-Parquet ready to send out to our customers.
And despite all that care and attention, it is still a very reasonably priced flooring material! Take a look at our website to see what is currently available.
