How To Install An Engineered Wood Laminate Floor?

If it is to be installed in a newly constructed location, it must be structurally complete and closed, including exterior doors and windows, so as not to increase the moisture content within the space.

Tools And Accessories To Install

  • Broom or vacuum cleaner.
  • Hygrometer (humidity meter).
  • Tizer.
  • Taco to hit.
  • Measurement meter.
  • Safety glasses.
  • Circular saw.
  • Miter saw.
  • Masking tape.
  • Rubber mallet.
  • Ruler.
  • Metallic trowel.
  • Adhesive.

Floating Installation

A leveling product should be applied since it is important that the floor is very even. This leveling must not tolerate imperfections greater than 3 mm, measured with an aluminum ruler over a length of 3 meters.

Cut

When cutting a wood panel, a square must be on hand to mark the lines straight. If you use a jigsaw, you must put the drawn face of the panel down. If a circular saw or handsaw is used, the drawing should be facing up.

The jig tends to fall out of the cut line. Therefore, you must hold the panel with the press and firmly grasp the saw with both hands. Try cutting with a wide blade, as the edges of the panel are less likely to break.

Adhesives

When the installation is glued, in general, urethane adhesives are used, which also serve to adhere to solid woods such as parquet. In such a case, it is very important to verify the humidity of the slab or substrate before installing and the quality of the adhesive that will be used for said installation.
