Preparing for Laminate Installation
Preparation is important for a successful laminate floor installation. We'll give you detailed information ahead of your installation, but here are some things to know now.
The versatility of floating floor installation allows it to be installed directly over most existing floors, including wood, concrete, vinyl tile and vinyl sheet, and even carpet. That means you probably don’t have to pull up old flooring or deal with the mess of repairing a damaged one before installing your new laminate floor.
An underlayment is recommended for laminate installation. Underlayment serves as a moisture barrier and will help quiet floors in areas with heavy foot traffic. It also makes your laminate floor sound and feel more like a real hardwood floor.
The room where your new laminate flooring will be installed will need to be empty, so you’ll have to remove all the furniture.
All our installers are employed by Biron’s Flooring only and not sub-contracted. We take pride in educating our installers by sending them to training and certification courses.
During Your Laminate Installation
On the day of the installation, be prepared to greet the installers and direct them to the work area. You should also plan on being available during the installation in case the team has any questions.
Once the installation begins, make sure children and pets are kept away from the work area. Our installers use a variety of tools and techniques that can make the work area hazardous.
When the installation is complete, you should do a thorough walk-through. This will allow you to see the final results and ask any additional questions. We want you to be 100 percent satisfied with your laminate flooring!
