How To Install A Floating Floor: It’s All About What’s Underneath!

How To Install A Floating FloorWe’ve all heard the phrase, “It’s what’s on the inside that counts.”

When it comes to installing floating floors, it’s not about what’s inside, but what’s underneath that matters most!

The underlayment is a very important part of this installation process. What you use is affected by what room the floor is in.

Take JR Carpentry & Tile’s most recent job, for example. A customer wanted a floating floor installed in their basement. Since the space was quite expansive, loud sounds and echoes were a big problem. Additionally, basements are more prone to moisture issues, and the customer didn’t want their gorgeous new floor to be at risk of long term damage.

All of these factors were taken into account when choosing the underlayment. We selected a waterproof material which also deadens sound. This will help protect the floor from condensation or moisture from the concrete below and prevent loud noises and footsteps from resonating back into the room.
