Floating floors

By Bill

from Farmington, Ct.



    • Floor Kept Moving During

    Best Uses

      The floating floor went down nicely. Just like advertised. However, I had a hard time keeping the floor from moving each time I butted the next row up against the pervious row in the first room I did. The second room went smoother when I first laid out the starting row or two and then used scrap pieces for the next row and screwed them down to the sub-floor. I then removed the first rows and the row I had screwed down, and reinstalled the first rows I had removed. I didn't need someone standing on the floor to keep it from shifting each time I butted a new row.

      • Q:

        Can you tell me the thickness of the end that overlaps the hardwood (the end away from the stairnose)? How high a 'lip' does it create?

      • Q:

        I can use this on my staircase correct? If so, do I have to cut off the bullnose on the existing staircase treads?

          Generally you would cut off the overlapping stair nose and then install laminate nosing and flooring. However, laminate flooring and nosing isn't a great idea for stairs, fine for one or two steps but we caution the use of it on an entire staircase. People do it but it can be unsafe. Check your local building codes.  Hardwood flooring and nosing works great, when laminate IS used you must fully glue will 100% urethane adhesive without the use of padding, padding attached laminate must have paddling scraped off.

          Floating Stair Step Installations:

          You will need to cut off the existing overhanging nosing on each step first.

          1. Starting from the bottom of the staircase working up, cut the stair riser to match the height and width of the step.

          2. Cut the flooring to length and width for each tread. An additional "filler" piece of flooring must be added to the back of the flooring.
          (Nail and glue for safety,)
          3. The Overlap Stair Nosing is then installed to cover the riser and laminate on step.
          (Nail and glue for safety,)
          4. The Steps and Risers should be attached by direct gluing to the stair using 100% urethane construction adhesive.
          (For safety, omit all padding).

          TIP; fit and adjust each step before gluing.
          Thank you for your inquiry.

      • Q:

        do you have a picture of the Dream Home St. James butterscotch oak 12mm stairnose that includes dimensions? I have my flooring and have started installing that but won't get my trim pieces for another week. I need to know how much room I need to leave for the stairnose. Are different brands interchangable? I was able to find a diagram with dimensions at the Armstrong site but don't know if all stairnose is the same.

          Thickness is not that important as long as you plan for it when covering the step down.
