What is a “Floating Floor” Installation?

For many homeowners who need floors for below-ground spaces, engineered hardwood flooring is the best wood floor for their situation. It's a beautiful, functional floor covering that offers excellent durability and looks great with any d├ęcor scheme.

When you begin to research engineered flooring, you’ll likely hear the term “floating floor” to describe the installation process. But what is it? Let’s find out.

A floating floor installation is useful

An engineered hardwood floating floor is installed by a method that allows each flooring piece to interlock on the edges. The result is a surface that rests atop the underlayment or subfloor, never utilizing glue, nails, or staples of any kind.

This installation process is straightforward and saves you both time and money, as your installers will only be in your home for a short time. It’s easy to clean, as well, usually only requiring a dust mop or damp mop to keep it looking like new for years.

Floating flooring should be placed on a perfectly even subfloor, and our technicians will speak with you about your specific situation. You also have the option to add an underlayment of your choice to prevent the clicking or hollow sound that can sometimes accompany footfall or children playing on the flooring.
