The author breaks the process into 6 steps: have a clean floor, adjust the flooring to the temperature of the room, use an underlayment, have a saw on hand, be sure to space the seams apart, and use moulding and thresholds that match the color of the flooring.
- Before installing any laminate flooring, it’s important to have a flat, clean surface (typically concrete) on which to install it.
- At least a few hours before you plan to install the laminate flooring, set the laminate in the room where it will be installed, if it isn’t being stored there already
