Tool Tips for Installing a Laminate Floor

[adsenseyu3]

When you start any DIY project, you go through several stages. The first stage is deciding on your project. Then you move on to research. Next, you make a plan, get the materials and gather the tools. My husband and I recently went through these stages when we installed a laminate floor in our bedroom. We bought the flooring material – Armstrong Farmhouse Hickory laminate – read the instructions, watched several YouTube installation videos and assembled our tools.

Tapping Block

Now we were ready – or so we thought.

We got off to a slo-o-o-ow start. We struggled installing every flooring plank. They just wouldn’t fit right. One side would go in, but the other side wouldn’t. When we tried tapping the planks into place with a block that we created, the edge of the laminate would chip. We were spending more time cleaning up chipped pieces than installing laminate boards. What we thought was going to take a couple of hours became several hours, and we didn’t have much to show for it.
