Floating flooring, defined

While searching for new floors, you may hear about floating floors and wonder what that means. Next, you'll listen to how beneficial it can be, especially if you need a quick installation and want to know more.

Floating floors do offer impressive performance and so much more. So, here are some facts that will help you understand them better.

What is a floating floor?

Floating floors are products that hover over the subfloor materials after installation instead of being attached directly. Floors are connected only around the perimeter to prevent shifting and excessive movement.

With these new floors, the pieces feature a system in which the materials lock together like a puzzle. It’s like a tongue-and-groove installation, as these floors are considered floating.

What are the benefits of floating floors?

One of the most significant benefits of floating floors is that they are faster and easier to install, which saves money on installation services. But it also saves money on products because you won't use as much adhesive, nails, or staples.

Another benefit is easy removal when it’s time to replace your flooring. Instead of tearing up piece after piece with the help of flooring company technicians, you'll dislodge the perimeter pieces, and the rest comes up with minimal effort.
