 When facing the decision of choosing the material for your new wood floor, and finances are a key factor then laminate floating flooring is the sure winner. That "used" to mean, lowering your standards aesthetically. Not anymore.

You can beautifully and economically install a laminate floor anywhere in your home, over any substrate.

Laminate flooring is made using Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF). Which is the same material that much of our furniture is made from. It's very durable. We can provide laminate that will suit any ones taste. In our opinion, nothing less than AC3 should be installed.

Furthermore tab lock systems incorporated into "some" laminate flooring makes it worlds better than the rest. These tabs really work. The tabs lock the sides of the boards together, minimizing if not eliminating board separation, which is a common occurrence with many laminate floors

Floating  floors come in many shapes and sizes

The options are plentiful when choosing a floating floor. Floating floors do not need to be fastened in any way. They are "Clicked" together locking them firmly in place. They only need an underlay to minimize IIC (Impact Insulation Class) and STC (Sound Transmission Class). A rating of 62 or better for each is generally a standard requirement for condominiums. The IIC relates to transmitted impact sounds, walking on a floor for example. The STC relates to airborne sounds, such as voices, television and music.

Once a "Floating Floor" has been completely installed and locked together, you will never know that your floor is actually floating. As long as the installer knows what they're doing, a floating floor is as stable as can be.

But one must keep in mind that not all floating floors are created equal. You must consider the AC ratings (Abrasion Criteria) which lets us know the durability factor, and recommends venue type based on these ratings. AC ratings range from 1 through 5.
