installing floating bamboo flooring?

bamboo flooring 3 Comments »

i’m having a problem with a gluess lock & fold floating bamboo floor when i keep installing a new row the boards keep snaping off why is this? i will lay the first board of the row snap it in fold down than the next board the end goes on then i elevate the board at about 25 degree angle which causes the other board to lift snap in place tap slightly .when i start the third board doing same the first board would come loose this even happen to the whole row one time; just don’t understand what i’m doing wrong.

Are you sure you started with the correct edge on the very first board. As I recall, one edge is intended to be the "down" board and the other is the one you snap into it. Try reversing what you are doing and see what happens. You should not have to lift any board other than the new one you are snapping into the other which is flat on the floor.

Another way to put it is, if you are starting on one wall, it is important which edge is against (of course allowing for the required expansion space) the wall and which is toward the room side.

Can just a few pieces of laminate wood flooring be replaced?

laminate wood flooring 2 Comments »

We had a water leak in the kitchen and three or four pieces of the laminate flooring have buckled when water leaked into our living room. Is there a way to replace those pieces without removing most of the floor? It just happens to be in the middle of the floor where the damage happened.
I don’t want to take up the whole floor to put the new pieces in. How do you do this when they snap together like a puzzle?

You must start and remove all the pcs from the damaged area to the nearest wall or cabinet. No other way to do this. Remove the shoe molding or base that is covering the end pcs at the wall/cabinet. They ll lift and unsnap. Place a pc of masking tape and number it on all cuts to replace the pcs just as they were.
Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar . I ve attended several installation seminars as well as installed a couple 100,100 s/f. GL
