A beautiful hardwood parquetry floor is a great asset to your home and you want it to look good for years. We can help you achieve your dreams! We Love Parquet’s service includes helping you choose the design, the hardwood, the stain and the finish, so you can experience the finished floor.
The key to creating and maintaining a high-quality wood floor is in the planning and preparation of the subfloor so the finished result will remain stable and last for generations.
To ensure the finished floor will be picture-perfect, we believe that what is underneath is important.
A well-prepared sub-floor ensures the surface is smooth for the timber overlay, improves adhesion for the bonding of the timber flooring and gives the floor optimum stability.
Preparing your floor for the installation of timber flooring includes everything from the removal of existing flooring material such as carpet, tiles, vinyl or timber, to levelling a concrete sub-floor.
The subfloor is tested for moisture content to prevent any future moisture problems affecting the timber overlay. Moisture can cause cupping in the wood, deterioration of the finish and create unwanted staining.
We Love Parquet recommends laying a flooring underlay that is both moisture and noise resistant.
In apartment buildings that have noise regulations, we recommend the installation of a soundproofing acoustic underlay. Designed and certified to meet Australian requirements, an underlay chosen to meet the conditions is guaranteed to reduce the sound impact from footfall.
While you are keen to see the results of the finished floor, it is important for the installation experts to spend some time assessing and preparing the subfloor for optimum results

Sanding and finishing
After installation of your new floor, We Love Parquet completes the project with sanding and personalised finishing, the customised highlight of the flooring process.
Your preferences for colour and finish can be realised to create a floor that will be the foundation of your interior design and style.
We specialise in new installations, renovations and restoration of timber flooring. As experienced craftsmen, we have been honoured to be the chosen tradesmen for restoration of flooring in heritage buildings and elegant mansions in Sydney and environs.
Sanding the floor requires various grades of sandpaper depending on the quality of the timber and the finish that is required. A smooth sanding will ensure the stain and finish of the floor will be perfect, which is what we aim for.
Colour matching for wood floors
Colour matching wood floors is critical for a great result for a renovation or restoration. You may want the floor to match other rooms, or a special item of furniture that will be a showpiece in the room.
Often the process requires testing to ensure the stain or wash appears the way you want. There is a reaction between the stain and the wood, that differs due to a range of factors. The end result depends on the variety of timber, the age of the wood, its grain, knots and the character of the wood, as well as what it was previously treated with.
Different stains react differently depending on the timber they are being applied to. If you are looking for a very light or very dark finish, the desired outcome must take into account the type of wood as well as the result you are trying to achieve. We Love Parquet can advise on colour matching to suit your project.
Custom stain colour creation
We Love Parquet’s flooring specialists will work with you to achieve the colour finish you have in mind for your floor whether it is a restoration or a new installation.
While a high-quality wood floor is always in fashion, the colour of the floor can be customised to meet changing styles and shades.
