What You Should Know About a Floating Floor

You’ve most likely previously heard of floating floors. They refer to a flooring material that’s installed without being secured to a subfloor. Instead, the boards are laid on top of the subfloor, locked together like so many puzzle pieces to create a tight bond. A floating floor: 

Offers Distinct Benefits

Conventional floor installation methods involve nailing or gluing the material to the layer of subflooring. This allows for a permanent bond that lasts until the entire floor is removed and replaced. A floating floor doesn’t work that way; it remains stable even without attachment to the subfloor. Because of this, you can easily update your flooring or switch to a different material, without any long-term disruptions to your daily routine.

Conventional glued flooring is more likely to telegraph any subfloor irregularities. But a floating floor doesn’t. Take a closer look at a floating floor, and you’ll see that its surface material will remain smooth and consistent, even if it turns out the subfloor is anything but that. Glued flooring, on the other hand, will display any distortions the subfloor may have, negatively affecting its appearance.

Did you know a floating floor can also be installed over tile? If you ever want to replace those ceramic tiles with engineered wood, laminate or vinyl flooring, you can have it done right away. A floating floor can help save you a fair amount on labor costs because the tile doesn’t need tearing off before your new floors can be put in place.
