I need some advise for securing closet door tracks to a laminate
floor. For the upstairs I can drill through the laminate and install
the tracks with screws. Downstairs the laminate is installed over a
concrete slab. I'm not really sure what the best way is to secure the
tracks. Should I drill through the laminate and into the concrete for
some tapcons or similar? Can I just glue the track to the laminate
with some construction adhesive? Any ideas?
But if you use screws, then the laminate is fixed to the floor
underneath, which I thought was a no-no. Aren't laminate floors supposed

If the floor is attached in a single point (roughly) there shouldn't
be much problem as you're not constricting it from moving out in all
directions. If it were a problem I could always drill an oversized
hole through the laminate, say 1/2" or so, and then drive the screw
into the subfloor through the middle. That way the floor can "float"
a little without hinderance.
Myself, I'd screw into the slab.
