Cover a few prep steps before you start installing new laminate flooring:
Measure your space to determine the amount of new flooring you’ll need, allow for 10-15% extra to account for waste.
Gather your tools: a measuring tape, hand & eye protection, mallet, pry bar, utility knife, flooring cutter of your choice, level, and a square corner measure. Our handy flooring installation kit includes all the necessary tools besides your saws!
Gently remove any baseboards or vent covers and thoroughly clean your floor.
Ensure the floor you’ll be covering is smooth and dry. This may be wood, concrete, or other existing flooring. Level your surface with gentle sanding if necessary.
