Floors are a “Snap” – On the House

Floors are a “Snap”

By on May 11, 2014

“Beat the Clock” made its television debut on this day in 1950. Host Bud Collyer entertained home viewers by having contestants do zany stunts for money under the pressure of a ticking clock. Today, if you want new “wood-look” flooring you can avoid playing “Beat The Clock” and a host of other games like “Glue or Consequences” and “You Bet Your Budget.”

Today’s new floors are a “snap” — literally. Glueless wood flooring has tongues and grooves that snap together to form a strong, tight seal. This eliminates nailing. Installed wall-to-wall, they need no glue to hold them in place. The flooring just “floats” above your existing floor.

Should the floors ever need repair or replacement — or you want to take it with you when you move — just unsnap it. Now, even renters can enjoy the beauty of the wood-look. You can still put in a real hardwood floor when you want, but sometimes you might want one that is a snap to put in (and out).
