When floating flooring is considered, homeowners often want to know what the installation is like. Some flooring materials are much faster and easier to install than others, and this type is one of them, thanks to not needing to be nailed down.


In fact, with a click and lock installation feature, it's a super-easy task.


If this is something you’re considering, read along as we tell you more about it. It’s important to us that you understand these processes, so follow along to find out more.



Flooring installation is diverse


There is a different installation technique for nearly every floor covering, and none of them are the same. If you choose a laminate or luxury vinyl material, you'll find the installation is quick and easy.


Even if flooring more than one room, the entire process can be accomplished in just a few hours. However, hardwood and carpet installation require more time, expertise, and special equipment for a successful install.


Hardwood requires acclimation before the installation can even begin, which is a process that can last from 24 hours to several days, depending on the weather and the humidity level inside your home. It must also be installed with an expansion gap around the edges, so measuring must be exact, especially in larger spaces.


Installing carpet requires a knowledge of the process, which includes laying out and cutting the materials, securing the edges, connecting seams, and stretching. These are all steps that help keep the floor from balding, bunching, or becoming prematurely worn, especially in high traffic areas.
