Laminate must be installed on a flat and level surface. Therefore, some existing flooring, such as carpet, needs to be removed first. Also, the subfloor needs to be repaired if it is damaged. Foam or felt underlayment also called a vapor barrier, is placed on the subfloor after it has been cleaned, leveled, and repaired. Some flooring brands come with a pre-attached foam underlayment. Laminate is installed as a floating floor. The flooring connects to float above the subfloor instead of being attached to it. The underlayment acts as a cushion between the subfloor and the floor to allow the floor to float easily. Tongue and groove systems and snap and click systems guarantee mess-free floating floor installation. Transition molding preserves the floor's structural integrity and acts as a practical finishing touch.
