Installing Glued Flooring

floors, flooringInstalling glued or adhesive laminate flooring is quite similar to that for a floating floor. Here's how it's done: 

Step 1: Select your starting wall and make sure the subfloor is ready for the adhesive.

Step 2: Spread the adhesive following the manufacturer's recommendations. In most cases, adhesive is spread liberally and the excess removed to a final depth of about 1/4 in.

Step 3: Lay the first full piece with the small-tongue side facing the wall.

Step 4: Place 1/4-in. spacers between boards and walls to allow for board expansion.

Step 5: Continue laying the first row until you need to cut a board to finish it.

Step 6: Measure the distance between the wall and the edge of the last board, subtract 1/4-in. (spacer), and cut the board. The piece left over will start the next row.

Step 7: Begin the second row of boards with the trim from the last row (if more than 10 in.) .
