Whether you want to do it yourself or ask somebody to do it for you, these are some of the things you should take note of. Try to avoid peaking. There are various reasons why peaking could happen. First is when the expansion space between the wall surrounding the installation and the laminate floors or the expansion space between laminate moldings and laminate floor is not enough. Second is if the floor could not expand since the moldings have been fixed to the floor. And, third is if you have a very long continuous area of flooring and you do not have an expansion joint. These would result to joints with high points. With the lack of space, your laminate floor boards would try to push each other up thus resulting to such high-pointed joints.
laying laminate flooring – Now you come to actually laying the laminate flooring itself. Following the layout you already worked out in Step 3, begin laying your laminate flooring remembering to keep the spacers in place between the laminate flooring and the skirting board to allow for expansion. If you're using tongue and groove laminate flooring, simply introduce each new board at a 45 degree angle to the previous one, and gently lower the new board in place. You should feel the tongue click into the groove, and the boards should sit flush with each other. It is advisable to use a pulling bar and a beating block to help encourage each board into place after you've laid it. Pulling bars are used when you reach the end of a row and don't have sufficient space to use a beating block. When you come to cut your end-of-row boards, the easiest way to do this is to lay the board in position where you intend to place it, ad mark on either side when a cut will need to be made. Using your set square, join the marks up to give you a nice straight cutting line. Using your laminate cutter, or the saw you have available, cut your laminate board, first checking which side of the board should be facing upward to minimise damage (this will depend on the type of saw you're using). Do not forget to wear safety protection while you do this.
