If you have an old reptilian floor that looks like this then you are a lucky devil!! You my friends have a ‘Mosaic parquetry floor’ and there are a few things to consider:
It is called mosaic parquetry and some have 5 ‘fingers’ of wood, others have 6 and some 7 fingers
It is directly adhered to the substrate i.e timber or concrete
It is in bad condition and needs TLC from a qualified floor sander
Repairs may be difficult due to avaliablilty of wood, so ask around
This wood is no longer avaliable except through us so speak to me, Ivan Kirton
It comes in different species
It will look beautiful once its cleaned up!!
