What is the difference between Floating and Direct Stick?


Floating floors are when the floorboards do not get stuck down to the subfloor, glued together to sit on a foam underlay, the floor is engineered to stay stable and flat and is held in place by the use of skirting and finishing trims.

Why choose Floating?

  • Ease of installation and sound-proofing qualities (due to the foam insulation)
  • Because of their acoustics, floating floors suit apartments.

Direct Stick

Direct stick refers to the floorboards being glued down directly to the subfloor which makes this method long lasting, clean and affordable.

Why choose Direct Stick?

  • Long lasting and moisture resistant
  • Solid and traditional acoustic feel, reduce rebound noise
  • Can be resurfaced and repolished

We'd like to thank Wayne and his team for making our choice so easy.  From the minute we walked through the door, not even knowing what we wanted, their friendly, knowledgeable and patient  help in their extensive showroom had me walking out with a smile on my face. They were quick, thorough, professional and courteous.  I would recommend First Choice to anyone wanting smooth sailing, lovely people and a quality product, not to mention the great after service.
