This is a rating system of durability. For example, AC-1 means it’s appropriate only for low traffic floors. It is recommended to use AC-3 or AC-4 for residential, as they run the gamut from medium to high-density floors. AC-5 is usually used for commercial applications.
The floating floor technique is the preferred choice; pieces click together, form a mat, and hover over the subfloor. Joints need to be correctly and tightly aligned with expanders and caulking used when necessary. Subfloors must be clean, dry, and level; sometimes the installer will sand it to be sure it’s smooth so subfloor imperfections don’t telegraph to the surface.
