How to Install a Floating Floor (in 5 minutes) – Renee Romeo

Watch and see how to install a floating floor in 5 minutes. I’m trying something new today. I have a five minute video WITHOUT verbal sound that will visually show you how to install a floating floor. It’s an experiment for me to see how people learn to do projects. If my voice has ever been distracting to you, this video is made especially for you! Listen to the happy music that will take you through the entire project instead. Home improvement has never been more enjoyable to watch – start to finish.

It’s only going to take five minutes!
I’m using 3/8″ engineered oak flooring for this project. This is ‘click’ flooring that doesn’t require glue but I use glue every time I install flooring like this. Why? If you eliminate the glue between the individual wood strips, you may get creaking and squeaking, over time. That doesn’t seem like a professional installation to me, so glue it is! The floor becomes one single surface that floats above existing flooring and isn’t attached to anything but itself. 

Why do I love this flooring?
Engineered hardwood flooring is the perfect choice for (otherwise) difficult installation situations. I install floating floors over particle board sub-flooring because nail-down versions won’t grip into particle board. If you’ve ever purchased a 1970’s era home, particle board was the sub-flooring choice of the day. I will also install a floating floor over concrete with the addition of a fabric underlayment so that I can increase the warmth and noise absorption in an otherwise cold feeling space. It’s the perfect choice for covering over existing hardwood floors in need of refinishing because it avoids all the dust and mess associated with the sanding process. It’s the perfect choice for the long term too – engineered hardwood can be refinished up to three times. 

How great is that?!
