Laminate Flooring. Wednesday , July 25th , 2018 - 12:16:30 PM
Homeowners love the fact that laminate floors are relatively easy to install. Laminates for flooring will often come in a package of a number of tongue and groove planks-they can be clicked into one another. When installed, the laminate floors will typically "float" over the sub-floor on top of a foam/film underlayment. This will provide moisture and sound producing properties. Between the flooring and any immovable object, such as the wall there should be a small (1 to 10mm) gap. This will allow for the laminate flooring to expand without being obstructed. For a neater finish you can remove the baseboards(skirting boards) then reinstall them before and after laying of the floor for a neater finish, or you can fit small beading trims to the baseboard (skirting boards). You will require saw cuts around the edges, and around closet and door entrances.
Now that you've started laying your laminate flooring you will undoubtedly find that you need to cut some of your boards when you reach the far side, or the top or bottom side of the room. The best tool for the job is a laminate cutter, which is purpose-built to give a quick, easy, clean cut to your laminate, without creating the mess of using a hacksaw. As you proceed through the laying, make use of beater blocks, and pulling bars along with a hammer, to encourage the boards to sit tightly and form a good lock together. A beating block is a buffer between your board and your hammer, to prevent damage to the board, and a pulling bar is a useful tool when you reach a wall, and there is no room to hammer a board in place; instead you insert the pulling bar into the gap between your laminate flooring and the wall, and then hammer the vertical lip of the bar to encourage the board in place.
Resistance Laminates are highly resistant to stains, fading and moisture and many laminate flooring manufacturers offer warranty protection against them for a long period of time (usually from 10 to 25 years).
