Install laminate flooring on a lean surface?

Postby Guest » Wed Apr 22, 2009 5:17 am

Someone plans to install some floor covering material on a lean subfloor. And he wonders if laminate flooring is a good selection and how to do the installation work.

Laminate flooring(L) is of a “floating” type. Unlike hardwood flooring, there is no nail used to fix L during the installation. In fact, the whole area of L is like a big tile put on the subfloor free. The laminate flooring can be installed with the follow way:

1. The installation area should be less than exceed 4*6m.

2. Make the lean surface straight and dry.

3. The lean must be less than 30 degree if the height installation area is over 2 lengths of the planks.

4. Set up a straight row of firm holder such as cement to support the laminate flooring at the bottom of the lean space. Use copper accessory to cover the transition space between laminate flooring and the holder..

5. Make the long side of the planks be upward if the height of installation area over 2 widths of the planks.
