Floors can increase the aesthetic appeal of your home. Installing the right floor is just as important as choosing the right floor material. Today, people are increasingly choosing floating floors. Floating floors, the wrong name, is a method of flooring, which is wrongly confused by many people as a type of flooring.
On a ‘floating floor’ (which is also known as ‘plancher flottant’ in the French language), the floor material generally consists of a board, which is installed without being glued, clamped, or nailed to the floor. Instead, because they are tied to the floor, the boards are joined together.
Homeowners can choose between various types; like 'glue together', which an old version of floating floors is. Floating floors together with glue are assembled with the help of the appropriate adhesive and pressure is applied to the board, to tie it together.
Other versions of floating floors are 'click together', which are also referred to as 'enter clicks' or 'tongue and groove'. In this case, the edges of the board are designed so that they are easily clicked together when combined and tapped on the edges of one another.
This does not require the use of any adhesives, making installation hassle-free and saves time. The newest and fastest floating floor option is a 'lock and fold' system, which does not require knocking or sticking with glue. In this type of floating system, the board is installed with the help of a special interlocking system that is milled.
