You will need some tools for your DIY floor installation project – concrete grinders, hammers, sealers, floor buffers, knee pads, grinders, and more. And you don’t know what a compound meter saw is? Floor installation is not for women. Seriously, men also make floor installation mistakes. Tapping laminate is a no no. Laminate flooring is designed to click together. You will damage the planks if you try to hammer them together. Don’t glue or nail the planks to the sub-floor either because this can cause floor buckling. And if you don’t know what type of planks you are about to install, don’t even think of doing it yourself. There are different types – laminate, bamboo, cork, and hardwood flooring. If you don’t know where to start, you are about to make a series of mistakes. You may install flooring in an area of high humidity, over under floor heating, or you may omit to glue the planks. And if you don’t know the difference between preparation and installation tools, hire someone to do the job.
