Laminate flooring is a great option to use in any home. If you are thinking of getting laminate flooring installed, it might be best to contact a flooring company. To install it on your own there are a few things that you should know.
In this article, we are going to review laminate flooring installation.
The first part of laminate flooring installation involves measuring out the floor. This is important so that you know how long each piece of the flooring should be. Once you have done your measurements you can make your cuts. If you make all of your cuts in the begging you will save yourself time later.
For the installation to take place the subfloor needs to be in good order. The subfloor is the floor that is directly under where the laminate will be installed. Any chips or cracks must be fixed before you can continue with the installation.
Finally, you are ready to put the laminate planks in place. Underlayment is a layer of material that goes under the laminate planks. Start at the wall and lay your planks one by one. Be sure to leave a small amount of room between the wall and the planks.
