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.
marking out your floor – Whilst you do need need to mark out where you will lay each laminate board as you would with laying tiles, it is very important to determine how you will lay your first row, and to get this right. For this reason, before we move onto laying the underlay, decide now where you will begin laying your first row of laminate, and the direction the boards will be going in. It's always advisable to start laying your flooring in the lightest part of the room. Once you have decided where your first row will go, lay your row as a trial, remembering to use spacers between the boards and the skirting board. This trial row will help determine how much of the end-row board you will need cut off in order to make the flooring fit. This is useful to plan in advance since you should avoid a situation where you are having to cut more than 50% of the depth of the board away (the short side), or less than 400mm of the width of the board away (the long side). This is because it will compromise the strength of your floor.
