    I know a snap-together engineered laminate floor is supposed to float and be held down at the edges with baseboard. In my case, there is one side that I did NOT hold down, because it butts up to tiles at the butt-ends of the wood planks. THIS edge is starting to elevate a small amount, primarily...
