Frequently Asked Questions

A floating floor refers to a type of floor that can be installed without the need for nails or glue. It is most commonly found in laminate flooring but has expanded to other ranges.

They come in an easy DIY click-lock floating floor system that does not require glue. Most of our hybrid boards come with underlay pre-attached, and they are all 100% waterproof with commercial grade scratch resistance.

In recent years, laminate floors have become one of the most popular DIY flooring options thanks to their relatively low cost, attractive look, and easy installation. Laminate flooring is now even better with water-resistant laminate flooring options available. The core layer is made of compressed high-density fiberboard, which is where the most water-resistant qualities live. Water-resistant laminate means that there is a top surface that is highly resistant to moisture.

The lifespan of laminate flooring in Brisbane will depend on several factors, including the quality of the product, the amount of foot traffic, and proper maintenance. On average, laminate flooring can last anywhere from 15 to 25 years with proper care.

Traditional flooring installation requires the floorboards to be attached to the subfloor, while a floating floor system does not. This makes floating flooring easier to install, as well as less permanent, allowing for more ease in removing or replacing the flooring if needed.

Laminate flooring in Brisbane offers several benefits, including:

  • Durability: Laminate flooring is highly resistant to wear and tear, making it a great choice for high-traffic areas.
  • Easy Maintenance: Laminate flooring is easy to clean and maintain, with a simple sweep or mop typically all that is required.
  • Cost-effective: Laminate flooring is typically more affordable than traditional hardwood flooring, making it a popular choice for budget-conscious homeowners.
  • Aesthetic options: Laminate flooring is available in a wide range of colors, styles, and patterns, making it easy to find a look that complements your home decor.

When choosing laminate flooring for your home in Brisbane, consider the following factors:

  • Purpose of the room: Consider the amount of foot traffic and other wear and tear the flooring will experience.
  • Lifestyle: If you have kids or pets, you may want to choose a more durable, scratch-resistant option.
  • Budget: Determine your budget and look for laminate flooring options that fit within it.
  • Personal style: Consider the look you want to achieve and choose a laminate flooring style and color that fits your personal taste.
