Excellent video

Quick2000 says:

Is underlayment always necessary? I know some laminate comes with some sort of padding or something attached, which makes it more expensive and so I need to find out if I need any such things before I begin this installation. By the way, I have not watched this video just yet.

Good video

k ly says:

the best thing to do when using a tap block, is cut a small strip off a piece of laminate and join just the top to the bit of laminate your taping in and use the taping block against the small strip. that way you don’t bust up the joints especially if you have cheaper laminate

Where do I find red spacers like those shown in the video? Need 1/2″ gap around each wall.

rachinc says:

You don’t even show the part where you take off the spacers. I want to see the space that is left behind when the spacers are removed. And I want to a step by step guide of you putting floor trim on top of that space between the wall and the floor board where the spacers used to be

Rob Barron says:

Too basic to be a proper self-help video. This is just a fancy advert to get you to buy a whole load of tools…. some of which you don’t need! A couple of useful hints but there are MUCH better training videos out there in YT land than this one.

HIDDENRAINN says:

Laminate flooring or Vinyl which one is the best??

Quick2000 says:

if you started every other row with a half of a board this would not look good? I see you ask for random or all sorts of sizes to start rows, but I thought a full piece to start then a half piece for next row to start would be OK. Is this not the case?

David3188col says:

Is it better to orient it towards the greatest light source or longest wall because these two are not the same in my condo? Thanks
