Before you start installing laminate flooring

There are several things to consider before you begin to install a laminate floor. Careful preparation before beginning will make installing your laminate floor a quick and easy process.

  • Ensure that your subfloor is flat, dry, and smooth.
  • Always use underlayment under your laminate floor for soundproofing.
  • Laminate flooring and underlayment/vapor barrier can be installed over concrete, wood flooring, vinyl tile, linoleum, tile, or virtually any other hard, flat surface.
  • Take extra care when installing laminate flooring over radiant heating. Ensure that you read both the laminate flooring and radiant heat system instructions carefully before beginning.

  • Read your laminate flooring manufacturer’s installation instructions carefully.
  • Allow you laminate flooring to acclimatize to the room where it will be installed for as long as possible (min. 48 hours)
  • Inspect each laminate flooring panel carefully for defects or damage before installing it.
