Engineered hardwood installation in a Baton Rouge, LA home

Can engineered hardwood be floating?

Engineered hardwood floors can be installed as a floating floor, very much the way laminate is floated. It’s the perfect way to place this floor covering over existing floors and subfloors such as concrete, vinyl, wood, and tile.

Engineered wood floors for every room

To create a floating floor, the planks are joined together without adhesives, nails, or staples. They are fastened through a tongue and groove or click and lock system from wall to wall.

Engineered wood floors are an excellent material for floating installation because they are rigid and stable, allowing you to create a beautiful floor quickly and easily. If you need to remove the flooring, it's just as easy to loosen and remove, making repair and replacement a simple task.

Once you decide to float your engineered flooring, you’ll want to consider whether an underlayment should be installed along with it. Quality underlayment can offer comfort, a warm touch, noise reduction, and a bit of resilience, especially for standing in one place for long periods.

The installation process is quick, and you’ll be able to walk on these floors as soon as they are in place. Maintenance is just as simple, and you’ll only need a vacuum or broom, followed by a microfiber mop dampened with warm water.
