The quickstep laminate floors comprise of four varied layers as described below:

The distinguished methods followed by the Adl laminate flooring experts to install the laminate flooring:
When installed, the laminate is installed in the form of a floating floor. With laminate, the floor installers do not have to face the difficulties related to nail–down installation of hardwood. Even there are no issues related to engineered woods. The cost-effective foam underlayment is first rolled out, then the underlayment is taped together and at last, the laminate planks are laid out to complete the process of laminate flooring. These planks are unable to slide around since the planks get to the form of a serious heavy unit as these are joined with one piece to the next piece.
The type of the laminate flooring planks differs like either being glued together or being snapped together. Snapped together method is known by certain names like fold–and–lock or fold–and–lay. The fold–and–lay method begins with the two boards in attachment by the outer grooves and angled to one another. After that, one board is kept on folding down till it becomes as flat as the companion board it has. The two boards are imperceptibly brought closer through the folding mechanism and it tightens the bond and prevents the water migration.
