When a Texan laminate expert named Ralph Wilson Sr. retired from the laminate industry as an executive, he felt somewhat bored by the long vacant retirement hours. To fill up his time, Wilson established a small enterprise dedicated to making decorative laminate materials in 1956. It was his so-called retirement hobby. The company, Ralph Wilson Plastics Company, started to grow because it stuck to its mission to deliver ”laminate anywhere in the United States in 10 days or less.” Nowadays, Wilsonart International is one of the largest laminate manufacturers in the US. The company now makes a wide array of laminate materials. One of the marquee products of the company is laminate flooring.
If you have a wood sub-floor then you will need a belt sander to smooth the surface. You might need to rent a jamb saw if you don't want to purchase one also. The jamb saw will be used to cut the door jamb and other trimmings so you have enough clearance for the flooring. A trowel will be used to smooth the leveling compound. The tools for preparation should cost you less than $100, including the cost for renting the saw. You will need many tools for the installation of the kitchen laminate flooring also. These tools include a backsaw and a miter box for cutting angles in the flooring. A circular saw is for straight cuts with a carbide tipped blade and a saber saw with a laminate blade will be used for cutting curves. You can rent saws from hardware stores if you do not want to purchase them for around $20 to $30 a day. The basic tools you will need for the installation of your laminate flooring in the kitchen will run you under $100.
