Question & Answer 

Q:  What is the difference between laminate flooring and Burmese Teak flooring?
A:  Laminate flooring is compressed wood whereas teak is solid wood which you can re-sand.
Q: Is the flooring scratch free?
A: No, but with present varnishing technology the floor is not easily scratched unless with pointed object.
Q: What is the difference between parquet and long-strip flooring?
A: Parquet refers to any wood with less than one feet in length. For long-strip it usually refers to two feet to four feet length.
Q: How do I ensure I get Burmese Teak? Any guarantee after installation?
A:

At UPI we only do Burmese Teak flooring which is directly from our own factory in Yangon. We provide one year guarantee for any defects arising from inefficient workmanship.

Q:

How to maintain the floor?

A: Normal mopping and cleaning.
Q: What is difference between local supplied and UPI Burmese Teak?
A: As in all natural wood, there are different grades of timber which will affect the quality of your timber flooring. At UPI we kiln-dried our flooring whereas local suppliers use only air-dried ones.
Q: Why do I need the wood to be kiln-dried?
A: In our opinion, proper kilning is vital. Kiln drying, as opposed to air drying is more reliable and precise because the drying temperature can be controlled.
You take a risk unnecessarily if you use timber described as air-dried and assume you can simply accilimatise it by leaving it on site for a few weeks.
Q: Any termites problem?
A:

Being higher in density and heavier than most woods, it has a rich oil content that serves as a natural preservative and is repellent to termites, insects and fungus.
