Heres our video on installing a floating wood floor! For more info and complete details visit: BarkerEnterprisesLLC.com
You guys seem really reasonable and down to earth, one of the best video’s I’ve seen for this stuff so far. Thanks for sharing.
Couldn’t have come at a better time!….Thanks!!
What about if I am installing IKEA cabinets? Should I install the floating floors first or after words? If afterwards, what will they floor butt up against?
Wrong. There no moister barrier. Floor will not last a year.
with a floating floor you dont need glue and how about a moisture underlayment
where is the underlay “This is incorrect” !!
If its floating, shouldn’t you address the damp problems first ?
If I already have wood floors that are uneven, will the cement underlayment stick to the wood thats already there?
Please don’t be tempted to fit this type of flooring like this, the method is totally wrongYou MUST have a moisture barrier or fibre type underlay for a floating installation
Moisture barrier? Awwww, heck, who needs one…..if I were the homeowner, you would rip that crap up and do the job right or I would put a lien on your business. Also, it’s common practice to use “set nails” every few feet.
before laying the wood floor , is necesary remove baseboard?
Where is the moisture barrier????OOPPSS
nope. i think you should watch a few diy movies your self bud.
had a laminate job that we had to force in every single board with a “block”
Our home is 80 year old and we have many low spots on the floor, I had no idea what to do until this video! Now it seems obvious. Thank you!
why do you stink you know it all Handyman skip on the prepping part you all show the easy part. show how to get a straight starting line when the walls are bowed. 2 thumbs down.
install cabinet first before floors…leave at least 1/4 inch for expansion then cover it with quarter rounds moldings to finish.
Is the moisture barrier truly necessary?
Dud you need to lay moisture underlayment underneath a floating floor when it going on a cement floor. I’ll give this floor 1 year and you’ll be doing it over again. Good luck.
I’m perplexed? maybe im retarded but wtf was he doing with that glued up lil pcs of molding?
not only no underpad never showed how to do the hard part of the flloor no help !!!!!!
These guys are trying to make a living at something they know nothing about. Come on guys do the job right your name is on the work.
how not to lay a floating floor. What this video. Never ripped up the old flooring, never laid down any barrier. Good job no job
I think You did a job job guys, and I have had floating floors installed with or with out the moister, barrier, it all depends on what is under the floor your installing.
we are about to take our laminate and disgusting carpet out of our front room and dining room which has a cement sub floor and put in wood. My husband wants to do it himself as it is a smaller area. I hope he can. Thanks for your great video.
TERRIBLE.. No underpad?! Its going to make clicking noises whenever you walk on me..
Been watching a few videos and this has to be the most helpful one so far. Aside from the stuff that has to go under it.
prefinished floors. they look good. id rather install and sand it myself. but this floorin looks good.
wow I don’t know.
you showed absolutely nothing
Where is the underlay! (uk term) and the boards you put in the end joins are to close together!
I have a feeling that someone nailed his finger.
Man using that nail gun in the way you are will get someone hurt.
