What do floating flooring services include?

Floating flooring services include the materials, tools, and actual legwork of fitting your floors. In some cases, you can have a Tasker purchase the planks or sheets on your behalf. Or, you can buy these yourself and book a Tasker to take care of the installation. If you’d like some help moving the furniture before and after the fitting, they may be able to do this, too. 

Though the exact details may vary depending on the Tasker you book, here’s what you can expect when you request a floorer via Airtasker: 

Materials and tools

Your floorer arrives with the complete materials and tools necessary for installing your floating floors. These include shims, tape measure, a hammer, tapping block or pull bar, a circular saw or another power saw, a utility knife, trim saw, flat pry bar, wide putty knife, a combination square, and a pencil. 

If you requested them to purchase the flooring for you, your hired specialist would get snap-together flooring, foam or cork underlayment, and tape. Not sure what colour or width of planks to choose for your room? You can consult an interior designer before redoing your floors.

Preparing the floor and planks

Your floorer starts by leaving the planks in the room for two days so they can acclimate to the humidity. Thus, it’s advisable that you get your flooring in advance. Once the planks are ready, your floorer removes the skirting boards and cuts the line between the trim and the wall to prevent the paint from cracking. They’ll remove the debris, roll out the underlayment, then cut the underlayment with a utility knife. After this, they’ll butt the sides of the pieces together and tape up the joints.  

Installing the planks

Next, your floorer starts to lay out the planks and cuts them to size. Then, they’ll install the first row of planks. Your specialist will leave 1/4-inch spaces after every foot to allow the planks some room to expand. When it comes to the succeeding rows of planks, they’ll snap them into the first row, close up gaps, and offset joints by at least 3 inches.

Once they reach the last row, your floorer sets shims against the wall, measures the width in several places, then cuts the planks to size. They may use a pull bar to ensure a tight fit in this row. 

Reinstalling the skirting board

Once you and your floorer are happy with the flooring, they’ll reinstall the skirting boards and seal all exposed edges. Sealing is especially important in bathrooms and utility rooms so moisture can’t get underneath the boards.

Lay floating floors


Elsternwick VIC, Australia

6th Sep 2022

We need to have our floating floorboards laid over our kitchen tiles. The area we have that requires it is approximately 22-25 square meters. We have all of the floorboards already. The floor tiles have rubber underneath. Our house currently has half of it done and you can see where our current floorboards end. We may need a trim to separate where these existing floorboards finish and our new ones will start. They're all the same floorboards. The pictures have a pile of rubbish in them which will all be gone by the time we get the floors laid. I will also level the floor and fill in the trenches before the job starts. We need it done in the last week of September. Any day except Monday of that week works for us. - Due date: Needs to be done on Thursday, 29 September 2022

Fantastic work and very easy to work with.

Lay a floating floor


Highett VIC, Australia

28th Dec 2021

Need approximately 30m of floating floorboards laid. The boards are secondhand and just going down onto a factory concrete floor. Not wanting to stick it down. Just want it fitted in a show room wall to wall so it’s a tight fit that’s finished with edging. I’ve laid over half already but l want it stagnated so the joins are not down the middle. Unsure of labour cost for this so your welcome to quote but idiotic quotes will be ignored. Make sure you know what your doing.

Yen is brilliant, did a fantastic job and is a great bloke to cap it off. Could not recommend more highly. Thanks for the the fast response and quality workmanship. Cheers Paul
