10 Tips for DIY Laminate Flooring Installation
Not sure if you will be able to install your laminate wooden floors yourself? We guarantee that with a few basic carpentry skills, a few simple tools and an instruction manual, you will be able to install your flooring hassle free. Here are a few tips to ensure that your floors are installed professionally:
- 1. Floor preparation: The subfloor needs to be prepared for effective laminate flooring installation. Laminate floors can be installed on top of almost all flooring types except carpet. If you have a room that features wall-to-wall carpet, the carpet will need to be removed. Ensure the surface is clean, free from nails and most importantly, level.
- 2. Workspace and tools: You will need a workspace, whether in another room or outside, where you can easily saw the planks when required, so that you have sufficient space in the room you are laying the floors to work in. You will need a measuring tape, some spacers, saw with blades for laminate flooring and a pencil / chalk to name just the basics, not forgetting your safety goggles and gloves.
