The description of the King Solomon’s life reveals the use of wood as floor covering dating back to/as far as the 10th century BC. Wooden floor coverings gained importance during Roman times when the technique of heat treating the wood with fire and longitudinal stacking were developed. As early as the end of the first millennium wooden flooring could be found throughout the northern Europe and cold climate areas surrounding the Atlantic ocean.One can say that the 17th century was a golden age of wooden flooring, when floors of the most famous castles such as French Versailles were being covered with wooden flooring using a special laying technique (marquetry) which was considered a real work of art. Since parquet was being handmade, only a handful of rich nobles could afford it. At that time, the world’s most famous manufacturers were from France, Italy, Croatia and Slovenia.
Nowadays, wooden floors are widely available so there are little to no households that do not have/use at least some type of wooden flooring. Guided by Croatia’s long tradition of wood processing, GALEKOVIĆ solid wooden floors are certainly one of the most durable high quality floors available on the world market. Over the years we have developed a wide range of wooden floors such as solid parquet and multilayer parquet along with their heat-treated versions that have/with high resistance to moisture and pests.

Today, what started as a house decorating trend became a standard.
The installation is performed with rubber placed between the slats that does not allow water to enter between or under the slats. This allows the parquet to “work” without any consequences such as swelling or buckling due to ingress and release of moisture.
This innovative technique created a posibility of wood application in highly humid places, such as the bathroom, where this was rather uncommon in the past.
