Parquet wood floors (by Tom [IL]) Posted on: Apr 20, 2019 2:15 PM

Another wood floor dilemma. Just got a house back that we want to sell. Almost whole house has wood parquet (squares) floors which to me seem dated (golden color). But they are in excellent condition with no work needed to them. Would you put new laminate over them to update house? --107.197.xx.xx

Forgot to mention that the house was built in 1955. The parquet were original floors that we refinished about 10 years ago. --107.197.xx.xx

Laminate would not be an update, it would be ruination. Someone would love that parquet with nice area rugs. --173.61.xxx.xx

I keep hearing on the home remodel shows that parquet is out, but I think it looks lovely and it also looks expensive because of the kind of work that goes into one.

I'd bet that most of the younger kids have never seen a parquet floor. --98.146.xxx.xxx

Parquet isnít my preference, but I certainly prefer it over laminates, and itís better than many other alternatives. I would put effort into making sure house smells clean, and that the front yard has curb appeal. A good staging company can do wonders, I have heard.

But, I donít do flips, so just an old wife opinion, basically. Others who flip a lot might know more. --70.92.xxx.xxx

If water gets to the old Parquet flooring, they could swell and lift, causing many issues. Before I'd install laminate over it, I would make sure your underlay has a waterproof membrane. --47.156.xx.xx

If the floor is "in excellent condition" keep it as is.

In it needs a minor refinishing, do that. --99.59.x.xxx

You mean REAL solid WOOD parquet? Keep it.

The cheap stick-on squares, cover it. --68.10.xxx.x
