And does the disc really tell you how to do this. I doubt it. I've just ploughed thru a 7-page guide from B & Q and this is what it said on the topic: 'You have to make minor adjustments to doorframes and skirtings to ensure your new flooring fits comfortably.' That's it! Seven pages of instructions on the easy stuff but when it comes to the tricky bit, they chicken out.

Yes,its easy!All you need just to take your door out until flooring is comlete,just like you do with the skirting boards.My example:remove all doors and skirting boards in a room before laying a laminated what is says under instruction,which is comes whith flooring.when flooring done doors and skirting boards can be fixed back

On the subject of laminate flooring I am about to attempt to lay some in my utility room. The slight problem being apart from the three doors and two waste pipes is that there is a drain cover cover in the room that for insurance purposes has to be easily accessed. Some form of lift out section in the flooring is what is needed but quite how I am going to achieve this has so far defeated me. Any suggestions would be welcome.
