wood floors

Length x weith= sq foot . Thats how much wood you need to buy is that correct. I was reading you should buy more than you need might have some pieces that are no good . when you put down wood floors do you have to pull the base board off the wall. What are some good brands of flooring .Does lumber liquadators carry good product.Dont know much about it I do know carpet sucks in high traffic areas.

Yes, length multiplied by width will give you the square footage. You then need to add for waste and culls. The more you spend on the product and the higher quality you buy the fewer culls you will have. Waste should be determined by the seller after he sees a plan of your area to be covered.

You can remove the baseboards and reinstall them after the floor is in or leave them and add shoe-moulding or quarter-round-moulding after the floor is in.

Lumber Liquidators????? You been watching too much Ty Pennington!

For a straight rooms, no jumps or turns, I usually add 5%. But you usually have to buy full box lots, so you usually are covered.
