    We've only had it 1.5 years but the benefit over timber floating floors is you can mop it with a wet mop.

    We didn't install it but it can be done quite easily. Ours has 3/4 rounds to finish it off, so it can be finicky, but still looks great.

    Interested in this topic as we are about to renovate and I have heard floating floorboards don't hold moisture well. So is this a floating floor or a lay down vinyl?

    Thanks

    The one in my post is a floating laminate. I've had floating laminate in 2 houses in the past and never had any moisture issues.

    I do prefer hardwood (installed over timber joists) or timber floating floors, but laminate floating are so much nicer than they used to be.

    Ours was installed on top of our cement slab.
    Looks like it clicked together same as floating floorboards to me, tongue & groove type set up

    My DH installed it in our rental (while we were living there). It's lasted well and took him a day to install it in the lounge room, dining room and hallway of a 2 bedder with the assistance of a builder mate.

    I'd recommend it
