Installation is the responsibility of the owner/purchaser and the installer. Only an experienced, certified laminate flooring installer should perform your Universal laminate flooring installation. Installation-related failures are not covered by the manufacturer's warranty. Preparing for Installation For aesthetic purposes, hardwood flooring is often laid on the longest wall. However, the homeowner/purchaser, in consultation with the installer, should make the final decision on the direction the planks will run before proceeding with the installation.Start Installation

You will need to prepare the following tools:

l 4-in-1 screwdriver

l Hand or power saw

l Hammer

l Puller

l Measure tape

l Pencil or chalk line

l Tapping Block

l Last-board pullerExterior wall is a good place to start the installation. A straight wall usually can be used as a reference point for establishing a straight working line. To establish a working line in a good way, the installer should measure both ends an equal distance from the wall and capture the chalk line. Undercut or notch the door frame to accommodate the floor thickness by placing a piece of flooring on the subfloor as a height guide for the saw cut. Remove door thresholds and molding and replace after flooring is installed. Always leave at least 1/2" of space between the floor and all walls and vertical objects for expansion. When establishing a working line, measure the distance to the wall at the width of the plank, plus an additional 1/2" of expansion space. If the exterior wall or other working line reference is not square, the working line may need to be adjusted. This can be accomplished by scribing and cutting the first row of boards to match the wall, creating a straight working line. Universal Flooring Supply is not responsible for damage caused by failure to prevent adhesive/glue exposure or the use of adhesive/glue removal products.Installation Process
