Considerations Surface Do you have a concrete slab, first make sure the surface is clean and even. Level out any unevenness before laying out moisture protection mat. Moisture protection mat is to prevent the moisture from the concrete to penetrate and destroy the floor. Moisture protection has channels that air can migrate through, and thus be ventilated floor. Mat is just 2 mm in height and rolled out on the ground with overlapping accordance with manufacturers installation instructions. When moisture protection mat is in place, you can roll the impact sound insulation, which should be flush. Impact sound insulation is to take up minor imperfections and reduce noise when you walk on the floor.Chipboard, plaster, plastic mat or existing wood floors in all these surfaces you can add your new floor on top, provided you do not have any moisture problems.
You should also take into account how much the new floor is based on height. It could be that you have to cut the door linings and plane down the door, on the new floor built too high. Carpeting should be torn away before laying the floor. Adhesive residue from the carpet must be removed before putting on the impact sound insulation. Remove all baseboards in the room. Make sure the surface is still, clean and dry. If you need to putty the substrate, select a provider approved by trowel.

The floor makes you selected often have their own installation instructions in the package. Start in one corner, from left to right. A basic rule is that you put the floor in right direction.
This is so that the seams do not show as clearly as the sun is on. If the room is not square but oblong tries most often lay the floor after the long wall, even if it is wrong in regard to the amount of light. This can help to start the plant at the wall having one or more doors. Also note that in the final row should not be thinner than 30 mm. Measure therefore the entire surface first, it turns out that the last line would be slimmer you cut a little from the first row. Place the first row and cut the last plank against the wall. The piece you cut off, you can use a so-called start bit, the bit that you begin the next row, provided it is longer than 500 mm.
Make sure that it is always 500 mm between the joints in the rows next to each other. When you cut the last board, you can add it to the wall with the space you need for the wedge. Then draw a line on the plank where it meets the plank as it should be merged with. In this way you get the right length of finishing the piece. When you put 1-2 lines, add spacers between the wall and the floor. This is done both on the long side and the short side of the floor. The distance should be about 5-7 mm depending on the width of the room. This is so that the floor should be liquid, and be able to move a little in all directions. Make sure the floor is straight, then you can not rely on that wall is straight. Measure therefore a straight line to follow.When you add the last line, it is likely that you need to cut the width. Proceed as follows: Place the last plank on top the second to last row of boards. Then draw the cutting line with a waste piece, which you along the wall. This follows the wall’s contour and migration marks where the plank to saw.
When the floor is in place, remove all wedges and replace Skirtings. Tip Saw radiator duct When you will be cutting the radiator duct, measure was the plank pipes will end .Then drill holes where you marked (remember that the holes should be slightly larger than the pipes). After the holes are drilled, take a handsaw or jigsaw and chainsaws as pictured. When the plank is in place where you glue the piece you squared away. Remember that you need to wedge it under the drying time. Cut the architraves / frame Place a waste piece of the floor on the ground. Then take a hand saw, lay it flat on the overflow bit and saw. In this way, the cut will be straight and high enough for the floor to fit in.
Always use a jigsaw when you cut with the jigsaw, think of how the teeth of the blade are directed. Is the teeth facing upward toward the saw, please go back so you can see the back of the plank when you saw it. Otherwise there is a risk that there will be chips on top of the floor.
