Like most things in life, however, it's not always as easy as it looks, and it always helps to have a few handy pointers to help you do the best job you can on your laminate tile flooring project.
Now, let's talk about casings. You need to trim them up a bit, so your floor slides easily beneath. A simple trick to get this right is to just lay a piece of underlayment in front of the casing, and then slap a piece of scrap flooring above that to find your level. Mark it and now you know where you need to cut. That will work for door jambs as well.
A simple trick to keep your underlayment from sliding around, is to just put a little bit of tape at the seams to hold it together. Be sure to use thin masking tape, or something else that won't leave a gummy residue. Remember to never overlap your underlayment, or you will end up with a bumpy, uneven floor.
Finally, when it comes time to tap your laminate tile flooring planks in place, be sure to use a tapping block. This will not only help you tap the planks into place more easily, but will also help you to avoid damaging your new floor. You can find tapping blocks at any big-box hardware store for a very low price. They're definitely worth it!
We hope these few tips will help you make your laminate tile flooring installation project go smoothly. Denrich Flooring, in Upland, CA, would like to wish you good luck with your project, and congratulations on your lovely new floor!
