    I took the carpet out of the bedrooms, and laid a floating laminate wood floor. How do I reinstall the folding closet doors? Specically how do I attach the track to the floor? I think if the screws secure the laminate to the subfloor it could lead to gapping as the boards expand and contract.

I would like to install a set of bifold doors at...
