When installations are required in our homes, perhaps you never hesitate to call a local handyman. Whether you are short of the skills or time to conduct the installation, hiring a hired hand basically makes sense. On the other hand, maybe your mind is mechanically oriented. You prefer mulling about how everything works, and paying someone else to fit something would never be an option for you. However, taking a do-it-yourself approach can potentially be disastrous. Errors in installations can consequence in wasted materials, time, and money. Therefore, heeding tips on the laying of laminate flooring will prevent your work from becoming as hard as the nails in the flooring.
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.
