What is a floating timber floor?
The term ‘floating floor’ describes the method of flooring installation, rather than the product itself. Unlike floorboards, a floating timber floor does not attach to the subfloor beneath. Individual planks or floorboards are attached to one another.
Are floating hardwood floors good?
Floating hardwood floors are a great flooring option. The benefits of a floating hardwood floor include low maintenance, affordable pricing and installation costs, engineered durability and the flexibility to withstand expansion and contraction caused by environmental conditions.
Floating hardwood floors are durable, stylish and suitable for high-traffic areas of the home and office. They can bring a classic, timeless beauty or a sleek, modern appearance to your home and interior space, depending on the design and colour you choose and the room’s décor. The addition of rugs serves to soften and insulate living rooms and hallways and also helps to minimise noise in bedrooms.
Can you glue down a floating wood floor?
Floating wood floors can be glued and are relatively simple to lay, making them the ideal choice for a DIY project. The expert team at Carpet Court can also have your new floating wood floor expertly laid in no time. Individual boards or planks are either glued to one another or slotted together in a click-lock system.
