Glueless laminate flooring is quick to install
Glueless laminate flooring comes in beautiful woodgrains and patterns to suit every design style and taste. Laminate floors are floating floors meaning that they aren’t attached to the subfloor. There are a number of manufacturers that produce laminate flooring that does not require gluing. They have a special tongue and groove that you simple place the tongue of one plank into the grove of another at an angle and press down.
Expansion areas that are concealed by wall base trim are left along the outer edges of the finished floor to allow the floor to expand and contract with temperature and humidity changes. Glueless laminate flooring can be installed up to 50 % faster over traditional glued systems. This type of laminate is popular with people that like to do it themselves and save on installation costs. Laminate flooring can be installed on all grade levels.
Glueless laminate flooring can be used in any room and can be installed over ceramic tile, well bonded vinyl or board underlayments. Some manufacturers recommend that if you’re installing it in a bathroom that you apply a thin bead of laminate floor glue along the tongue and a bead of silicone caulk in the expansion gap around the edge of the floor. This product is perfect for any room that has a lot of traffic because of its durability and ease of maintenance.
