Floating timber floors are a great option for any home as they look absolutely fantastic and can be easily installed over your existing floor surface. If you’re hoping to achieve the look of timber in your home, read on to find out more about installing floating timber floors.
Floating timber floors are a great choice for most households as they are able to be installed over your existing flooring surface, such as tiles, concrete, plywood, or even structural timber floors. An underlay is generally used with the floating floor as it gives better noise insulation. You can choose from a range of different timber types and colours for your floating floor and because they come pre-finished, there is very little work to do after the actual installation. Floating floors are not nailed down, so any movement that may occur is spread over the entire floor, making it less likely that gaps will appear.
The installer will ensure that any soft floor coverings are removed, that the concrete (if any) is moisture proofed, that the timber flooring has time to acclimatise if necessary, and that the boards are cut to accurately fit the room in the most attractive way possible.
Many floating floor suppliers will provide an installation service or you can have a flooring professional do the installation for you. Both of these are great options but you need to make sure that your professional is appropriately qualified and licensed and is experienced in laying all types of floating timber floors. If the cost of installation is not built into the price of the flooring, you will need to ask for a detailed quote. Also ask questions of your installer, such as how to protect the floor against furniture, how to clean the floors safely, and so on.
