Floating (glueless) engineered hardwood

Q: What do you think of floating (glueless) engineered hardwood?

A: It depends who the manufacturer is. Torly’s and uniclick appear to make the best, while for a glue down, Mirage engineered is the best I’ve used. The advantage of the floater, of course, is you don’t have the expense of the adhesive.

Follow-up Q: I have heard of Torly’s so I will look into it a little more now that you recommend that product. As you say, the advantage of a floating floor is that I don’t have to buy the adhesive (and I’m sure I wouldn’t like the fumes either).

I was wondering whether the installation cost is lower with floating floors since the whole step of applying the adhesive is removed. Or did you mean that $3 per sq. ft. is what you charge for floating floors?

A: The installation may be about the same, but you would still save a few hundred on the adhesive.
