NOTE: Humidity of the Solid Parquet application area (Screed) should be between 15-18°C. Otherwise, the applied parquet may swell and rotate.

If you feel such a risk, a moisture barrier should be laid on the screed and 4mm plywood should be adhered with double component glue on it, and then parquet should be applied.
