Floating Flooring in Sydney

Have you heard of floating floors? This type of flooring is made of any type of hardwood and even bamboo but the planks are not in any way fixed to the sub floor. No nails or even glue are used to attach floating floors. If you live in Sydney and you would like to remodel your home, why not consider floating floors in Sydney contractors to do the installation for you.

If you are a homeowner and would like to consider having hardwood floating floor, here are some facts about this project that may make you make up your mind:

  2. Some floating floors in Sydney contractors use a special type of foam in between the subfloor and the planks. This will protect the wooden planks from wear and tear and reduces noise as the wooden floating floor is stepped on.
  3. Different types of wood may expand to varying degrees. It is best to allow gaps from the planks to the walls to allow the wood to expand in time. A flooring contractor or a retailer may assist you in finding the most appropriate type of wooden flooring for your home.
  4. A convenient locking mechanism is always in place to secure the planks together. You may also work with concrete bricks or laminate floating floors with the same type of locking technique.

  • Pick the most appropriate wood variety to match the mood of your interiors. Never pick out items that are on sale right away. Ask for sample and check the hue and texture of the plank against your wall color, lighting and most of all your furniture color and design.
