The laminate installation process
Laminate flooring is a versatile material designed and engineered for easy installation. You can install laminate floors in almost every room in your home. It's also much faster because there is no need for adhesives or special tools. It's a great weekend project for many DIYers with some experience. However, we still recommend getting a professional installation to ensure everything goes right and to make sure the job is covered under any warranties.
During and after installation
Laminate flooring is designed for a "floating installation" that doesn’t require glue, nails, or staples. Instead, laminate boards have unique tongue-and-groove edges that connect by simply locking into place. Once complete, the entire floor “floats” above the subfloor, expanding and contracting with the temperature and humidity changes in your home.
After installation, if you are sensitive to dust and odors, you should establish good ventilation. If you have questions about floor maintenance, we would be happy to answer them for you. Feel free to contact us at Kopp's Carpet & Decorating.
