Floating Timber Floors

A floating timber floor is simply any type of timber flooring that has not been attached to a subfloor or foundation by nailing, gluing or any other method. They are placed over an existing floor or surface meaning that you can lay a floating timber floor over concrete, particleboard, plywood or even straight over tiles, real timber floorboards or cork. All that is needed is that the floor is a firm surface and that it is level. One of the benefits of Floating timber floors is that they are generally laid on an underlay, providing excellent noise reduction and insulation.

Real timber floating floors are usually prefinished to make laying the floor easier and faster. Fake timber floating floors are made from laminate, which is a veneer of paper and resins attached to a substrate. The laminate is moulded to look like real timber but it does not require the maintenance of real timber.

Real and fake timber floors both come in boards that are ready to lay.
