laminate flooring


Postby richardanderson » Wed May 06, 2009 8:48 am

Having to do this job without assistance is proving tough. Can anyone give tips for laying a 10 metre run of boards? I've managed the shorter runs - 4 metres in an odd shaped basement conversion which made four rooms into an open plan. The rooom is roughly L shaped and has beam supporting piers to profile around but it is the long straight runs which I have to tackle next.
Cheers.

Simply Build It

Sorry, can,t see the promblem.
If the boards at the edges are right, and the flooring is locked together correctly(no gaps) then the long runs should fit together ok
It looks worse than it is, just time consuming, but if you can do the edges and cuts, the middle is the easy bit.
