* Floating Vinyl Flooring -


You may have heard about the very popular materials called COREtec Plus and Adura Max.  These materials are examples of floating vinyl floor systems that lock together on all 4 sides. They have Vinyl top layers and a composite core, which are water-proof.  The COREtec Plus features a soft cork attached underlayment that adds some extra softness and sound dampening qualities. 


With so many different types of flooring on the market today, we often get the question - "What is a Floating Floor?"


Basically, a "floating" floor, is material that isn't glued down or nailed in any way to your homes' sub-floor.  The material locks together, either on all 4 sides, or on the top and bottom joints. This is known as the "click-lock" installation method.  A "floating" material simply is laid on top of whatever sub-floor you already have.  It is held in place by finish molding around the perimeter, either base and or shoe molding.  



Types of "Floating" Floors


The flooring industry is constantly coming out with new and improved clickable floating floor systems.  There are a few different kinds that we often recommend to many of our clients.  

Here's an overview - 

​​


* Laminate - 


You may hear the term "wood laminate" but in fact, laminate flooring is not made of actual wood.  Instead, most of it is made from fiberboard, infused with a special resin, with basically, a photograph of real wood on top, underneath a clear protective layer.  We don't normally recommend laminate flooring due to it's lack of moisture resistance properties.  There are higher-end laminate materials that cost more, but if you're going to spend the extra money on your flooring, you're better off with a more durable material.



There are other circumstances you should consider when looking at installing a floating floor system in your home.  Things like: What type of subfloor you have, what level of the home it will be installed on, and what type of prep-work will be needed.  For further information on this and more,

Cork flooring has many appealing qualities.  Besides it being naturally hypoallergenic, it has thermal and acoustical qualities as well.  It's warm to the touch, and softer than most other floating floor materials.  Today, there are a multitude of styles and colors to choose from.

* Engineered Wood Flooring -


Engineered hardwood flooring is made up of a “core” of hardwood, plywood or HDF, with a hardwood veneer glued on top.  It comes in a wide variety of wood species, and certain brands of engineered hardwood can even be sanded once maybe twice.  There are many varieties of engineered hardwood floors, and depending on the subfloor, it can be installed as a floating system, or glued down.
