Installing Laminate


We installed laminate floors throughout the entire first floor of the house. This includes kitchen, bathroom, living room and dining room. Now, we are removing a wall and an lower adjacent cabinet to install a kitchen peninsula. The big question is, now that I will have exposed concrete where the wall and kitchen cabinet were, can I fill in laminate in this area without removing all of the laminate from where the wall came out all the way to the closest exterior wall of the room. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS A WAY TO PUT IN THE EXPOSED AREA WITHOUT HAVING TO REMOVE HALF OF THE FLOOR ON THE FIRST FLOOR. HELP!

I wish I could tell you that, but I'm afraid you have some floor replacement to do.

Do you have the exact same product as what was first installed (existing)?

Installing Laminate


Well you can remove as many planks as needed and start with new ones as long as they are not glued. The question is weather or not it will finish up with a full plank when complete.

got pics?

Installing Laminate


floorwizard....it is not glued and I don't remind replacing a few rows from one end of the house to the other, I just don't want to take all of it out from the wall removal point all the way to the end of the house. essentially, can I put in say two rows form one end to the other if the house with existing being on both sides of open area. I thought I could angle up the existing side and the newpiece and then force down nto place????

Depends on the locking mechanism but usually that will not work...you will need to do much more than that. the last plank will be much like a single plank replacement and is very hard to do. If you can unclick and reclick it takes more time but is much easier.
Maybe someone else can go into it further for you.
