Either way, laminate floors are easy to install. Most laminate floors have specialized, glueless tongue and grooved locking systems that make installing laminate flooring a snap! No messy glues needed and are easy to fix, in case you make an error while installing.
Laminate floors are never secured directly to the subfloor; instead, they are floated over the subfloor. This allows laminate flooring to be used over a wide variety of subfloors, including wooden subfloors, existing floors and even concrete slabs.
Laminate flooring can be Installed in Multiple Ways:
Glueless laminate flooring
No mess, glueless installation makes these floors quick and easy-to-install. They come in a variety of ceramic and wood designs and coloration's. These laminates come in both planks and squares. A thin, plastic underlayment is needed to seal out moisture from below.
Laminate flooring with attached underlay
These laminates come with several different types of tongue and groove locking systems and an attached underlayment to reduce noise levels.
Glued laminate flooring
These are the original laminate floors that do require a special formulated glue to be applied to the tongue and grooved areas for each plank. Once the glue is dried, the planks are almost impossible to pull apart. These floors are offered in both planks and squares.
Pre-glued laminate flooring
No mess, because the glue is already applied to the tongue and grooves that makes these floors quick and easy-to-install. A thin, plastic underlayment is needed to seal out moisture and prevent the glue from sticking to the substrate.
