but would doing this void the warranty ??


I’m just beginning to install 1600 square feet of locking laminate. I have short, sculptured baseboard that i do not want to remove or replace. Luckily there is just enough space to slide it underneath. I couldn’t find anywhere online with a method to do so. Basically need to start the ends of each row, under the baseboard. I was going to trim the locks and glue together where needed to get it done. Then I find your video! Perfect, will be a great help. Especially using the small planer. Thank you very much!

Paul J Kimberlee says:

Useful tips thanks. I don’t have one of those little block planes, I found a sharp chisel worked really well though, much better than a knife for me.

I’m doing a laminate floor in my daughter’s room. I’m at the part where I have less than the width of a plank at the closet and wall. I really wasn’t worried about it though. That’s because I knew extraordinary people like yourself have already done clear concise videos on YouTube that walk me though the problem and solution. Thank you. Ill let you know how it goes.

John Dee says:

Great Just what I wanted to know.a nice trick. |Thanks

Jose Romo says:

First off thank you sir for making these videos as they have helped me out. Second would you make a video of how to terminate laminate at the threshold, then how to cover that, or into another room like a sun room without a threshold but some end cap ideas.

Thank you

Daniel Nelson says:

Thanks man. This saved my day. Liked and subscribed. Keep it up.

Why did you glue so many boards and not just the one that goes under the door?
Thank you

Julie Ibarrondo says:

I want to thank you so much for your straight talk.. ( example) not saying a million other things that take away from the point that needs to be understood. And also for sharing your professional advice with everyone. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time out to do these videos. May you always be successful in what you do Joel..

2QUICK says:

Do we need to leave spacers in there between the wood and the walls? I took them out and in no time at all it seems I have gaps in places where it seems the pieces have separated a bit. Several of them, not all of them. Thank You!

sharmclair says:

Phil Barrie says:

Hi thanks for the tips Brill. Phil

James Prather says:

Thank you for this tip. Very helpful. One question. I noticed your floor ended at the door threshold. Since it’s floating, how do you hold it down at the threshold?
