Glueless floating wood floors
 
I was reading about glueless floating wood floors of FloorFacts.com and I like the idea of real wood instead of a laminate floor. Does anyone have any experience with installing glueless wood flooring?

Thanks!

It is pretty straight forward to install.

Do you have a specific question or concern?

I am wondering how easily they go together and if they will stay together for years. I did a staple installation once and it was pretty tedious making sure the psi was just right in the gun and making sure the staples were not embedded too deeply in the tongue. So if a glueless wood floor will work out just as well without the need for staples, a staple gun and a compressor I could get this honey-do project done faster and maybe easier on my knees too.

They do go together easily.
The entire tongue is now the locking mechanism and you will not be able to pull them apart.

Easy to install as a lock together lam.

Even easier if its a lock and fold system. The butt joint ovelaps so you dont have to tap it in
