Installing a new floor could be tricky. If you're not sure how to handle the installation yourself, you can find a qualified pro to help.
Before installing wood or laminate flooring, unpack it and let it sit for one to three days in the space where it will be installed so that its temperature and moisture become acclimated to the levels in the room.
Keep some extras
A little extra flooring on hand is great for repairs down the road. Keep a few cartons of your product in a place where the temperature and moisture will not damage the flooring, like under the bed or in the top of a closet. This keeps the product readily acclimated and available should you need it.
Flooring installation can be very difficult. Every floor has specific angles and corners that means to think before installation. For example, by starting your installation at strategic point, you will avoid waiste.
Validate your measurements
Validate your measurements before doing cuts or installation Make sure you have enough of material to cover your floor. It’s always smart to buy 10% more flooring than what you think you need. This allows for mistakes and bad pieces.
Laminate floorboards within a given package often have a similar pattern. To reduce repetition, pull boards from multiple packages when installing.
