installing a bamboo stranded floating floor..


is there an issue installing fixed cabinets over the floating floor. some installers say< ah, it's no problem. Then some people say it may cause floor to buckle because the fixed cabinets lock in the fllor and it cant float....opinions....?

It depends on how big and heavy the cabinets are. I've never had any issues with something like a bathroom vanity, but I would never install a set of kitchen cabinets on top of a floating floor. The manufacturer will always tell you not to install cabinets on top of the floor in these situations.
