Buying Guide – Hard Floating Floors

Floating floors are a quick and easy flooring solution that can be laid directly over any clean, level, flat surface much faster than traditional hardwood flooring.

Quicker to install than conventional Tongue and Groove timber flooring systems, with no glues needed, Universal Flooring Uniclic profile is the smart decision.

Ready to use immediately after installation, these floating floors are an easy choice designed for today’s fast paced lifestyle.

Constant tension of all the joints means the overall finish of a Universal engineered floor is far superior to conventional tongue and groove floating floors.

Laminate Floating Floors by Parador (German Made)

Laminate flooring offers that real timber look at a cheaper price. All of our laminates are constructed of HDF (high density fibre board) and come with swelling protection. They are also manufactured with a clicking system to allow for quick and easy installation, either by you or by one of our qualified installers.

Laminate flooring has the advantages of being scratch resistant and easy to maintain. Great for a growing family or just someone that has a busy lifestyle.

There are two main styles just like in our timber range, the wide board look that would suit more open plan spaces and the traditional parquet (3 strips) look for smaller or traditional areas.

Also with the patented registered embossing on some of our laminates by Parador the realism of the timber look achieved is amazing.

All our laminate flooring products meet strict European manufacturing standards for a superior finish. There are different thicknesses from 7mm to 8mm and also designer beveled edge boards that create a modern floor board look.

There are over 25 different designs and colours to choose from in a range of qualities and styles to suit everybody’s budget.

Accessories (timber/laminate)

All of our stores display a range of accessories to complete your installation and maintain and protect your timber or laminate floor.

Vinyl Flooring

Another popular alternative to timber is vinyl flooring, which comes in a number of modern styles. One of the major benefits of this product is its stain-resistant protective coating, which keeps maintenance to a minimum.
