I have a through lounge diner that has original parquet flooring. I have had 4 companies in to look at restoring it and 2 have never come back and the other two have. The problem seems to be the wood as the first seemed to say that he has had it checked and it is Ope which I have never heard off and now the other has come back and said it is Meranti. I cant get Meranti parquet anywhere and nor can he unless he buys the wood and engineers it.
Would love to know if anyone out there has a suggestion on matching it up or where to get some wood otherwise it will be carpet :(
