I had a floating floor twice. It floated after a heating pipe leaked. It dried
out ok. Floated again after a sewer drain backed up and spilled over. I ripped
the wood out after that mess.
We've got floating (over foam layer) floors in a a few rooms in the house.
Its ok, but I don't like the feel. The rest of the house has a paint on
vapor barrier. They stuff I did myself is great, and feels good to walk on.
The areas I hired a licensed flooring contractor to do have squeaky boards
everywhere. They also used my bandsaw to trim boards and corners and broke
half a dozen blades. Priddy shiddy. Several things they didn't even know
how to do. I had to tell them. If I ever redo the floor in the house it
will all be glued down over paint on vapor barrier and no f^&king flooring
contractor is going to touch it.
ya dude, lyke in da last fluud dem boards started floaten real gud,
dun near made it down de mississippi to naw orleans, but a gator swam
out and chomped off my left leg, durn near dyed, best to anchor dem
