Installing click together flooring, or click lock hardwood flooring, is an easy way to get a wood-look floor without forking out the big bucks. The name says it all. The pre-finished planks just click together and no messy glue or nailing is needed. It's a simple job that'll transform your home, as well as add durability to your floor. Click together flooring looks great in most areas of the house – but importantly, cannot be used in any wet areas.
