Floating Floors vs Glued Down | What’s The Difference?


There’s two types of hard floors that we have here at Parrys Flooring Solutions. One is a floating floor which clicks together, and then there’s one that’s glued down.

The floating floors, traditionally laminate or the new one, which is hybrid, is made from a solid material. It has a joining system and clicks together that you can get a professional to do.

If you’re handy with the tools, you can do it yourself. The other choice you have is a glued down floor. Now glued down floor comes in panels just like a hard floor. But you can see the construction makes it a little bit different.

So when it comes to laying these, they have to be glued down to hug the floor. But you’ve got to make sure you prepare the floors very, very well.

If you’re interested in either of these two hard flooring types, come down to one of the Parrys Flooring Solutions stores, five locations. Ask our experts and they’ll give you a hand on that.
