Laying a laminate floor for first time,struggling with edges


Postby inch high » Fri Jun 29, 2007 2:43 pm

Hi folks,

New to the forum and just wondering if I could pick your brains...

I'm laying some laminate flooring this weekend in my living room and hall, I dont know what to do with the edges. I've bought some beading stuff which I can attach to the existing skirtingg, bought I dont know how I would go about the doorway. Would I have to just leave the doorway with no beading? - otherwise the door wont close unless I chopped bits off the corner!

Other than that I've pondered taking the skirting off, laying the floor, then replacing the skirting. Bearing in mind the house is an ex-council one, and I reckon if I remove the skirting, I'll pull half the plastering with it!

Go to our laminate flooring project and you will see some sealant at the bottom designed especially for this. Your cut needs to be neat in and around the door frame and the gap is filled with flooring sealant. You will need a sealant gun to apply it which can be bought from the tool store.
