There are two basic types of hardwood flooring-plank or strip and parquet. Plank or strip floors are constructed of long boards, which are laid side by side to form the traditional hardwood floor. Plank and strip flooring are basically the same except that traditionally any floor that has a board width of 2-1/4 inches or narrower is called a strip floor and any floor that has a board width of more than 2-1/4 inches is called a plank floor. Most hardwood floors installed today are either plank or strip. These can be either engineered or solid.
There are typically three to six layers of wood and the cross lamination makes a very dimensionally stable plank. These stable engineered planks can be glued directly to a concrete slab parquet flooring is the description used when the floor is cut into short lengths and special shapes and assembled into a pattern. There are many parquet designs with names like herringbone ,finger-block. The pieces of the floor can be assembled at a factory into a modular unit and then these units are laid to make up the floor or the parquets can be assembled on the job. Parquets used to be more popular but the trend in last twenty years has been towards plank and strip flooring.
