What is a floating engineered hardwood floor?

Floating Floors

When installing a hardwood floor over concrete, A ‘DIY' installer's best bet is to put in floating engineered hardwood floors. A “floating” floor simply means that the engineered wood fits together in a tongue-and-groove interlocking system and the planks are glued together. There is no further anchoring to the sub-floor (i.e., no nailing is needed).

This option is also a great option for Do-It-Yourself installers. Installing a floating or locking is a faster and easier installation method.
