Floating wood floor questions

slk230redMay 8, 2011

Has anyone installed a floating engineered wood floor and like it?

How's the fit and sound compared to glued down?

How's the finish and durability compared to glued down?

Anyone use square edge instead of micro beveled?

What width did you use?

What underlayment?

I'm thinking about replacing my Robbins glued down engineered wood floor with a different brand of floating engineered wood flooring.

Here's my opinion on Floating Wood Floor. I do not see reason why people would ever consider it other than if they have a uneven substrate. With that said, if uneven you would ever want square edge. The micro bevels are their to hide any imperfections in the milling. Some manufacturer's drum sand to give better milling, but I would still prefer micro bevels so I am not felling any high edges. I would use a cork underlayment if I had a gun held to my head.
