Everybody wants to know about the floating floor. This is a question many craftsmen ask themselves when examining laminate floors. A floating floor is basically a floor that is not nailed or glued to the base.
There are several ‘advantages of floating floors’ (also known as ‘avantages des planchers flottants’ in the French language) over safe floors. You can install it on another floor such as linoleum or concrete first. This reduces the installation time.

Another great benefit of using a floating floor is that you can reduce the number of creaks and creaks the floor creates over time. The stick is made of loose nails that rub against the wood. By removing the nails for the floor, you eliminate the source of the creak.
Floating floors are also easier to install than secured floors. In most cases, you can easily install your floating laminate floor. This will also help you reduce the time it takes to install your laminate flooring.
Installing a floating floor starts with creating a flat surface. During this process, the existing floors can be sanded or the carpet removed. You will then need to install a vapor barrier when installing the floating floor over the cement floor and laying the foundation. Once your bearings are closed, you'll want to start installing your floating floor.
