We're going to be installing laminate floors in our second bedroom. I've done the sub floor repair, that's covered in a previous video and we've prepped the floor. It needs to basically broom clean and just need to sweep it. You don't have to go crazy with it. This is particle board sub floor over a plywood sub floor, and we just had to do some. That's still what we just had to do a little bit of patchwork on a few spots where the particle board was in bad shape and to do some over here. It really should let that putty dry longer than we are, but we're gonna get started anyway.
So the first steps gonna be to put down the underpayment and it supposedly quiets it. As you walk, that's actually the name of this quiet walk. It has, I think, and we've been happy with it and I really do think it keeps the floor warmer. So your mileage may vary so we're going to roll it out now and cut this section and then lay and secure the next section and it starts. You know could have my assistant standing on the other end and my other assistant sitting here to help weigh it down that shouldn't be an issue, I'm a kitty, all right, no cats, all the way. Just you want to get it to piece perfect because the tapes come off. So you don't want to over a lot.
That's on me: okay, right now, it's overlapping, okay, we're going to start with the full course on this wall, because we've measured the room and determined that once we get to the other end, we should have more than I think it's maybe an inch or something like That I mentioned a horror you have to have actual material for the work as if you're doing less, it's going to be an impossible feat to get that in America at the stay. So we're lucky enough that this room is set up where we could use old pieces to start with, so it is going to lay them out and once we leave out we're gonna get our spacers fairly sure, okay, okay, we've laid the spacers out and on The end we put two in and then we put them here - probably every two-foot.
Now this wall we have determined is not perfectly straight. It kind of bows in on the middle, so these spacers down here aren't even doing anything not touching anything. So we may put a few more spacers in once. We get this first and second course laid just to help support it, while we're a hammer and rest the planks in so. The next thing to do now is to measure our first cut and that's pretty easy and there's a little trick that I have but make this goal hack a lot quicker. Okay, first cut: you could measure it and transfer that measurement to the point here and cut or you could do it the quick way. Okay, so my lip is gonna be facing towards me. So what I'm actually going to do just take this plank.
