I am new to the forum so be niceâ€¦ just need some help and advice.
I have just bought a new house and want to remove the carpet and laminate it throughout. I have bought the flooring including the fibre board and plastic membrane but now I am thinking maybe it a bit too hard for meâ€¦.
I am going to see what it will cost to get the work done but does anyone have an idea what the charge is? Say I know it will depend on size, flooring, etc but I just need an idea?
Also, if I were to do it myself, what would be the best way to attach the beading to the skirting? I have been told not to use glue but I donâ€™t really want nail holes? I want it to last whatever I doâ€¦.
I donâ€™t want to buy a jigsaw and nail gun (and anything else I may need) unless I am sure I can do itâ€¦ and I am notâ€¦ :?
If i was unsure of how to do it , i would take a trip to my local laminate store and pick someones brain . People are often quite helpfull especially when they feel thay are talking about something they are experienced at . Im sure they will recommend a good process . I have done some myself and id glue rather than nail . Its very easy to split the wood even using small nails and a semi flexible glue would be more than sufficent on laminate , if it is laid correctly then there will be minimum movement . Its really not as difficult as you may think it is and i would say give it a go , you only need to lay a small area to see if your doing it right and if your really not comfortable there are plenty of floor layers around , however been your floor , i would imagine you will take more time and effort to get it right than they will .Have a go and good luck .
