Is High Pressure Laminate Flooring A Good Production That Is Easy To Install
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Sitting under the awning of my Fifth wheel trailer in Lake George NY wondering what I will write about today. I came up with the idea that I would write about High Pressure Laminate flooring is it an easy product to install and is it a durable product?

The first thing you have to do in the room that you want to install the high pressure laminate flooring is remove any quarter round there is in the room at the base board if there is any. Otherwise you have to remember to purchase some quarter round to install in the room after you install the high pressure laminate flooring.

We will start by talking about the installation foam underlayment for the high pressure laminate flooring. It should be rolled out and stapled in a few places making sure there are not staples sticking up to interfere with the laminate.

The High pressure laminate is very easy to install, but my suggestion is that you buy the installation kit that they have with the laminate flooring. The flooring should not be installed tight to walls you need to have at least a ¼ of an inch or more expansion space, refer to the installation instructions to the particular product that you are installing for the proper expansion dimension. To cut the laminate a miter saw can be used and a table saw to rip any of the pieces needed.

There is also A maximum area that can be installed before you need to install an expansion joint into the floor. Read the installation instructions for large areas before your start installing high pressure laminate in areas any larger than average size rooms in a house.

If you read the instructions for installation of the high pressure laminate and follow the instructions precisely you will have no problem with the installation work if you have a background in carpentry. Always remember to use up all the pieces as you go with this system. The piece you cut off from the start of a row you use it on the other end of the row as a finishing piece. Working in this fashion you will have minimal waste.

As far as the durability of the high pressure laminate flooring it holds up very well in high traffic areas. We installed a high pressure laminate flooring system in my Daughters’ kitchen and dining room area 9 years ago this spring and the product looks as good as it did when we first installed it. There is a family of five living there with 2 dogs. The only thing she does to the floor is follow the instructions for upkeep on the product.

In closing I would like to say that a high pressure laminate flooring system is a good product for high traffic areas, it is easy to install and the upkeep is very minimal.
