Drop & Lock Laminate Flooring Installation Tips And Common Problems




What do you think about this video?

Josh G: excellent vid it made my floor installation a breeze thanks

Kim Wojo: Thank you so much!! When I get frustrated, I watch the video . . . again. :)

frozentootsiepop: Very informative and well made video. Thanks. I plan on installing drop and lock flooring in a bedroom next week. The room has no trim. Should I install the trim first, then install the floor with the expansion gap and then install the quarter round on top? Or install the floor then just count on the trim to cover the expansion gap and skip the quarter round?

Tomislav Zvonimir: Hi, i have a problem. I bought some laminate and they are all same long size 1,5m. So i can't mix smaller ones with the long ones. That leaves me with a 0,5m gap at the sidewall. Now i have to cut an entire box of planks in smaller pieces to fill the whole gap. The problem is i can't lay them down as they won't clip properly on the shorter lenght. What should i do?

Kevin Zazvorka: How come no answer to JN2013

Kevin A. McDaniel: Wish I would've seen this before I started on my daughter's bedroom.

Laura Kondrick: Good information. Thanks for the video!

Beverly Roxby: It looks to me like this guy has the tongue side and ghe groove side mixed up. It's clear enough from the video what he means, but still...

Brian Milligan: Great video. Thank you! 

Marcelo Urias: Thanks for this video. It saved my project. I was three rows down when I got suspicious I was going backwards....if it wasn't for this video, I was in for a day of grief.

Len Breccia: Great video thanks

Billy B: I never knew this type of locking system existed until I went to install some flooring I bought. I have been trying to figure it out for a week now. NOW I KNOW!! :-) ty this was very helpful.

Kenneth Settles: Thank you for making and sharing this video. It's very informative, and explains it fully without a bunch of unnecessary fluff mixed in.

JN 2013: How would you go about when installing a drop and lock flooring transitioning as one uniform continuous flooring between multiple rooms where it is not possible to start from one wall working to the other side of the room due to walls not being square? Would you mark out a middle line and drop and lock the floor in two directions from that middle line, with one of those directions being what you in this video describe as the wrong way? 

Michelle Riley: Thank you so much for this video, I have literally made every mistake you mentioned in the video and was about to give up but I decided to look for helpful video's so I am going back to rectify my mistakes and hopefully it will be easier :)

Brian Hamilton: This is very helpful. Thank you!

Stephen Reiher: Thank you. After installing my first house with Angle-Angle, I went to do a room in my new house with a different flooring. I thought I was going nuts! But now I can see what to do because of your comprehensive video. Long side first.... thanks!

Thomas Sinclair: simple and informative...thanks

Rich Gale: Right watched the vid now time to try it...wish me luck lol...thanks for the video...best one I've seen.
