Installing a laminate floor is not as difficult as you may think.
You can install this type of flooring yourself.
See tools I used at bottom of page.
|Here is a view from the front door looking through the living room into den and dinning area.
All carpet, padding, and tack strips were removed and hauled off.
|Same view with floor started.
This flooring had no foam backing, so I had to lay the black covered foam down before installing the floor.
|View from den back towards front door.|
|Den into kitchen.
The black covered foam was installed over the linoleum before new floor was installed.
|The most tedious part of the job was cutting all the angles.
The bar, fireplace, and some of the wall were at angles. It wasn't very hard, just time consuming.
|Kitchen into laundry room.|
Tape measure, Jig saw, hammer, tapping block, pull bar, and square.
Follow the instructions for the floor you purchase and don't be afraid to try it. Like I said it is easier than it looks.
