Do you have any question about Floating Flooring? Contact to discuss:
Floating floors don’t refer to the flooring composition, but instead the method of flooring installation. Floating floors click-lock together or utilise a tongue-groove system that enables it to “float” on top of the sub-floor (the floor beneath where the new floor will be installed). This is unlike traditional solid timber flooring or tiling, which need to be nailed and/or glued to the subfloor.
You can think of floating floors as a “jigsaw puzzle”. You click-lock the different floorboards together side-to-side, and together lock each other into position. Don’t worry though, floating floors are far stronger than a jigsaw puzzle and won’t move or break with pressure. They are kept together by the joinery, friction, weight and confinement of the boards.
They are known for its simplicity of installation and suitability for apartments because they can be installed on top of an existing subfloor e.g. tiles, plywood, concrete, old timber floors or particleboards.
Floating floors include 4 main categories of floors:
Engineered flooring is a type of layered “timber floor” with an upper layer of hardwood timber bonded with several pieces of plywood underneath. It’s upper layer of hardwood timber is prefinished and bonded to the subsequent plywood layers.
Engineered floors combine the benefits of real timber floors with the versatility of a floating floorboard design – making it suitable to be installed in apartments.

Hybrid flooring is an innovative new type of flooring, which brings the best characteristics of vinyl and laminate floors together to create an improved floating floor.
Hybrid floors are made of multiple layers of materials pressed together and come in a wide range of designs and styles. The top layer is a UV coated wear & tear layer, the second layer is a decorative print with the desired design, and the centre is a composite core board that is waterproof and stable. Finally, there is an acoustic backing that increases foot comfort and reduces sound resonance.

Laminate flooring is a fine-printed photograph laminated onto layers of wood composite material. Laminate floors can mimic the look of real timber flooring, oak timber, bamboo, and just about colour and style an interior designer can imagine. This is why there are many varieties of laminate floors.
Whilst laminate flooring are not real “wood”, they are becoming increasingly popular because of their superior durability, water/wear resistance and affordability.

Bamboo floors are made from a type of grass (bamboo), and yet is harder and more durable than timber floors. Bamboo floors are made through a process shredding of bamboo and pressing it together with glue at high temperatures.
Bamboo has an elegant natural beauty and superior durability, making this style of flooring an increasingly popular choice amongst Sydney home owners. Bamboo grows in abundance and faster than their tree counterparts, enabling it to be a more affordable and environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional timber floors.
