Floating Installation

Planks click together with patented locking systems, do not need to be glued to the underlayment or subfloor, and can often be installed over existing flooring.

Glue Down Installation

Uses adhesive to glue the laminate flooring to the subfloor and creates dimensional stability so that the flooring stays structurally sound in heavy traffic.


Padding or cushion under the flooring that adds benefits including noise reduction, moisture barrier, mold inhibitor, greater comfort, and longer performance.
