buckling floating floor

It depends on why it's buckling, but more often than not, it's fitted too tight to walls, cabinets, etc., or it's being bound by fasteners improperly placed in the shoe molding around the base.

Moisture is another possibility.

It's not that it took him an hour to make 100 bucks, it's that it didn't take you 10 hours to save 100 bucks.

A floating floor is buckling???
Imagine that!

How about some more information if you want some help. Do you need to know what we need to know or do you already know what we need to know and you are holding back waiting for us to ask for what it is we need to know?

Can't do anything with:
