Floating floor

Laying wooden floors by the floating floor method means the wood floor is glued together over a spongy underlay (shown in the picture), the hardwood flooring is not attached to the sub floor hence a floating floor. This method has its drawbacks, the finished hardwood floor will have a bouncy feel like a laminate floor (magnified in large rooms) and it is virtually impossible to replace a floorboard. You would be surprised how often we replace a floorboard with reasons from falling chandeliers, hot coals being dropped on the floor and even staining from pumpkin juice!
