- Laminate Flooring Subfloor Preparation
Most modern laminates would fall under the floating laminate category based on the way they are installed. A floating laminate floor is just as it sounds, floating. It is not fastened to your subfloor but instead locks into the laminate piece beside it using a special locking mechanism. These locking mechanisms are all different and can vary from one pattern to another. A poorly developed locking system will make noise when you walk over the floor as the pieces flex against each other and will also wear prematurely.
Laminate Flooring Tips
Laminate flooring usually comes in 3 grades of quality from good, better and best. The grade is determined by quality of the pattern, the durability and it’s moisture resistance. The quality of the warranty also affects the grade and final cost of the product. Laminate flooring manufacturers also use another grading system depending on the application of the laminate. This rating is called an AC rating or (Abrasion Class) rating. Typically most homeowners and light commercial users should look for a laminate with at least an AC 3 rating. This ensures you get a very durable floor that will stand up to normal wear.
