New flooring, new laminate click, tiles, of course, the first thing you're gonna have to do is get rid of your old stuff. Now, unfortunately, if you live in a bit older of a house or the flooring, it's just more of the old style chances are its glued to the floor. It's gonna be a pain in the butt most. The difficulty in this project is gonna be removing the old flooring. I recommend using something like this putty knife. Some people call them spatulas a few names for this tool. It's just a simple flat piece of metal with a handle. The official name for this tool is a joint knife. That is the official name. Joint knife crowbars work. Well too, you just got to be careful, you don't damage the sub flooring, that's the flooring underneath your wood flooring.
They even make special tools that pop the stuff up. You just have to be careful and really make sure it can get underneath the problem you're gonna run into some tools. Are they may not be flat enough long enough to really get underneath and pry it up? It's definitely a workout. Once you start doing a few of this, if they're glued they're gonna be a pain to get up and a lot of times, they're gonna leave a glue residue behind, which means you're gonna have to clean your floor's, but first things first tile By tile piece by piece, we need to rip up the old flooring, make sure you remove all the nails that were holding in your molding. Your edging floorboard usually found on things near stairs or other design features in your house, like the dividers between rooms.
You're gonna need some lockjaw pliers to get a mount and a bit of strength all right. One out. This would make it a lot easier when you're laying down the new laminate flooring, eventually, you're gonna get to a point where you've removed all of your old flooring. Congratulations: it's a pain in the butt, especially if it was glued down, but it's worth it because we've gotten rid of the old stuff and we can put it in the nice new stuff. Just a word for the wise: if you're left with sticky residue or a lot of dirt clean it up, you want your sub floor. The B is nice and even as possible.
If there are holes in it or goes a concrete, sub floor, you're gonna need to patch it up. If it's wood just make sure it's pretty even and clean, then you're gonna want to determine how much new laminate you'll need. So you'll have to determine the square footage required. That's how you buy a laminate flooring or even hardwood flooring. Your tiles. It comes in a square foot measurement, every box of a certain amount of square feet. So this is just pretty simple. Math goes back to your days of basic geometry for every room.
You're gonna put new flooring in you're gonna need a width and a length. You know the floor. I'm doing has kind of different sections, so I have like the main floor, a hallway to the door, a small bathroom kitchen, but it's just the same technique for all of them. Get your width, season inches and your length feeding inches then eventually you're going to get totals and square feet and then from there they recommend adding in 10 % extra we're all human.
