Installing a floating floor is probably the easiest option when it comes to laying flooring. Whether it is a laminate or hardwood floor there is no need to use nails or glue to lay the floor. The boards are designed to click together so that installation is quick and fuss free. The good thing about a floating floor is the ease of installation and the fact that it can be laid on top of pretty much any surface. Laminate flooring is usually applied using this method. The one instance when a floating floor installation is not appropriate is when the surface beneath is concrete. Applying a floating floor directly to concrete can lead to damp, cold and mould. Instead an engineered wooden subfloor should be applied first or as an alternative to a floating floor.
Additional benefits of the floating floor installation are that if there is ever a need to replace a board or a small area of the floor it can be done quickly and cost effectively. Simply remove the problem boards and replace. No glue or nails to contend with – just boards that are clicked together.
