Avoiding Common Laminate Flooring Mistakes
Installing laminate flooring can be a big undertaking, but it’s certainly a rewarding one. There are some common pitfalls to avoid during the installation process. If you sidestep these landmines, you can look forward to enjoying quality flooring that lasts you for many years to come. Let’s take a closer look at some common laminate flooring mistakes and how to avoid them.
Prepare for Installation
By far one of the most common laminate flooring mistakes is to go into an installation unprepared. Installing new floors is a big task and to be successful, you need the proper tools and a lot of patience. Check out the subfloor before you start installation.
Subfloors are typically cement or concrete and can develop weaknesses over time. Placing laminate flooring over uneven or weak subfloors leads to the new floors being compromised and it will eventually buckle and damage the laminate locking system. This leads to creaks and can create micro gaps in the new floor.
Choose Quality Material
Another laminate flooring mistake to avoid is to resist the urge for going for the cheapest material you can find. After all, your flooring is an investment, and should be treated as such. This is why it pays to invest in quality laminate flooring from Mat Floors.
