Questions before laminate installation.


Planning to do a laminate floor installation within the year. I have 3 questions:

1) How can you tell if the walls of a room are not square? I don't have a good eye for that.

2) How can you cut the laminate pieces lengthwise without a table saw?

3) Where can you buy those two special tools for locking the pieces together?

Thanks, Mark

3,4,5 the corner (I promise you the room is not square, should be close though)

2) How can you cut the laminate pieces lengthwise without a table saw?

Circular saw, safety goggles, gloves, clamp it securely to a workmate or similar bench

3) Where can you buy those two special tools for locking the pieces together?

Big orange or blue store

Thanks, Mark

Hope this helps and have fun

You can also use a jig saw to rip the planks.
