I thought of replacing my carpets with the new click-lock engineered
hardwood flooring. The ads say it is easier to install than the glue-down
All my flooring is on a slightly above grade concrete slab. I previously
installed regular engineered plank flooring in my hallways. It looked and
felt very nice. A great improvement over the cow-paths in my old carpeting.
But, I am wondering about the quality of click-lock hardwood installations.
Has anyone actually installed click-lock flooring (the planks kind of snap
together)? I was wondering if they look as nice and feel as solid under-foot
as hardwood flooring that is glued down over concrete pads.
Thanks for any input
For my first project, I used the thin, foam-looking stuff with my $0.78/sq
ft laminate. Worked okay, the floor "sounds" solid. For the next bedroom, I
cut up some heavy trash bags to use as a vapor barrier under some $0.49/sq
ft laminate. The floor sounds a teensy bit "tinnier," but the kittens who
live in that room don't seem to mind.
