According to Chicago General Contractors – Global Designs Limited, several companies in the construction industry manufacture snap and lock flooring systems that either resembles natural hardwood, or that use actual hardwood surfaces with cushioned sub surfaces to create an authentic appeal to the finished product. These snap lock systems are very easy to assemble and put into place. It is very similar to finishing a puzzle, the biggest difference being that the pieces are all shaped the same.
