We are constantly developing beautiful, easy-to-install floors with superior surface wear and scratch protection. We are convinced that good interior decoration starts from the “floor“ up. It is the foundation of every room and reflects the character of its inhabitants and its users. We are therefore always looking for innovative design and the latest trends that stand the test of time.
Parma Floors is committed to the health and safety of our customers. Our floors meet the strict specifications of emission standards. Parma Floors is CARB2 certified and meets the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) phase 2 stringent emission standards for formaldehyde emissions. This Californian regulation is one of the most stringent in effect to limit formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products.
Parma Floors focuses on resource efficiency and sustainable energy supply.
This reduces CO2 emissions and improves the overall value of wood in all aspects.
The products are made from virgin wood; the required energy is produced from recycled wood, after it has gone through its many possible life times, and replaces the use of fossil energy.
Laminate flooring has been a popular choice in other parts of the world for many years, most notably in Europe where the grading of laminate flooring is still the industry standard. Laminate flooring is made up of a core of dense fiberboard, and a top layer on which a photographed pattern is pressure sealed by a coating of plastic-like aluminum oxide. When you walk on a laminate floor that appears to be made of real wood, you are actually walking on a very realistic photograph! This sealed photographic, or décor layer, makes the laminate floor surface very durable and resistant to damage from high foot traffic, household pets, and light moisture. The core layer is thereby protected from moisture that might land on the top surface, although water spills or other moisture should be mopped up promptly and not allowed to sit on the floor.
Advantages of laminate flooring: installation
Beyond the laminate floor’s resistance to moisture, scratching, and staining, which allows the floor to be very low maintenance, one of the main draws of laminate flooring is the ease of its installation. Many types laminate flooring provide a "glueless" alternative, allowing each board to be connected by means of a tongue-and-groove design that clicks together to form a sturdily fastened surface. With some experience in light carpentry, a laminate floor is a good option for a proficient do-it-yourselfer. In this sense, installing laminate flooring yourself could save you the cost of hiring a professional. If you happen to be a professional, a laminate floor is a great time-saving option to offer to clients, allowing you to move to the next job with minimum fuss and maximum results.
Solid wood flooring is 100% hardwood milled from lumber. As a natural material, hardwood reacts to changes in its setting, like moisture and extreme temperatures, which cause solid wood to shrink or expand. All solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished if needed over the years. Solid hardwood is not recommended for installation below ground level or in bathrooms.
Engineered wood flooring is built up of layers of wood. It consists of three to ten layers, called plies that are glued together. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood superior stability, greater than solid wood, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change. Engineered wood can be installed below ground level making it a great choice for finished basements.
