Products / Engineered Wood
In recent years the construction industry has discovered the value of engineered hardwood. Engineered wood has many advantages over solid hardwood. The construction technique for engineered wood is more sustainable than traditional hardwood since material is not wasted by sanding after installation. Engineered wood is suitable for different uses: has better sound absorptions, offers higher value for its cost, and is better resistant than solid wood. It is also better resistant to humidity. Hardwood, both solid and engineered, promotes good air quality in all spaces.

Low CO2 Emission
For interiors, there are many different hardwood finishes, from light colors of Fir and Maple to dark colors like Wengè and American Walnut.
Wood processing is dependent upon desired results and style. You can choose planed hardwood carved with irregular effect or antiqued hardwood or pressed hardwood to make it more resistant.
Wood is the most adaptable material. It works well for kitchen floors and can make a space very inviting. Parquet, being a natural material, is among the most beautiful expressions of modern designs and is both organic and eco-sustainable. Engineered wood can also be used to clad doors, walls, and stairs and can coordinate well with many other designs and furniture styles. Stained options are available to help designers achieve a specific mood, such as the rustic mood created with stained walls and moldings.
… and Exteriors
Wood is a suitable material also for Exterior application but only Solid not Engineered, some of the most resistant and common species for decks are: ash, teak or walnut. For outdoor installations, wood is treated with a protective coating to prevent aging.
Wood is used for patio flooring, particularly wood floor decks and swimming pool decks: just like boat decking, and pairs well with other pool materials such as stone or mosaic tiles.
CP/Large & X Large Wood
We are moving away from traditional sized solid wood planks, which tend to be short and skinny, to large, extra large, and long planks with counterbalanced on the bottom side. But which is the right wood flooring for you?
Your choice is usually dependent on the characteristics of the rooms and determining the correct size for the specific application .
3 layer wood flooring is the ultimate in prefinished wood flooring: it ensures maximum stability over time and allows for bold designs with extra widths and lengths to create a stunning floor. In addition 3 layer boards are ideal for floating installation. CP Parquet is one of the few companies to produce top quality wood planks with 3 crossed layers. The same wood species is used for both the visible surface layer as well as the out of sight bottom layer.This produces a resistant, dynamic structure that will endure the elements, absorb normal variations in humidity and temperature. You can install 3 layers floating, without the use of glue for a more economical and ecological floor.
2 wood layer planks flooring gives the pleasure of walking on a real wood floor. Due to its slimmer thickness it is particularly suitable for renovations: it can be laid without having to raise door thresholds. The use of medium sized boards in smaller rooms will create a more attractive, harmonious appearance, when maxi boards could seem out of proportion in a small room. 2 layer boards can also be used for intricate patterns, such as herringbone or chevron.
