So make sure you follow the Pat guidelines. When laying your specific floor, fitting a wood floor can really improve the look of a room, but if you've been putting it off because you thought it was too tricky, then stick around and we'll show you just how simple it can be and even if you've done It before we've got lots of handy tips for you to save time. Before laying you wood floor and you'll be ready to start laying your first board a handy tip at this stage is to make sure you let the wood packs sit in the room for at least 72 hours, so they can acclimatize to the temperature in the room To lay your flooring, you're going to need some basic tools, a force to go fitting kit has all you need to lay your flooring.
Otherwise, you'll need a pencil, a tape, measure, safety, goggles, a set square tension, straps wood glue, a dust mask spaces, knee pads, a pull bar, a tapping block, a hammer, a drill, wooden drill bits and either a saw or a jigsaw, depending on how you're going to Cut the flooring right we're good to go, select start fitting, get your first piece out and check it over. It's a good idea to do this for every piece as you go, you'll see that one side has a tongue and the other a groove lay it down.
Working from the left-hand corner of the room with the tongue facing the wall now for the spaces use about two for every piece of wood, these will make sure there's an adequate gap around the floor for it to expand and contract we're going to work across in Rows, but never in columns so now take another piece and, with the glue run a line inside the groove and attach it to the first use the tapping block and Hammer to get the two boards nice and snug easy now for Row. Two because we began Row one with a full piece. We don't want to do the same for this row, because the joins will match up creating weak spots and the pattern can look wrong.
So the best way is to cut the first board of row to 2/3. The length of a full board just like this now to cut your first piece, you can either use a handsaw, a jigsaw or a circular saw if you're going to cut with a handsaw or jigsaw make sure you draw a line straight down the board. So you get a perfectly squared edge, you can use a set square for this line, the board and the blade up correctly and moving away from your cut through the board. Don't worry too much about having a rough edge to the end.
