Series Woods XL Dark Vintage Oak Laminate Flooring Installation Guide
Laminate floors are the most popular choice of wood flooring due to the fact the are very easy to install, can be installed in all areas of the house (except wet rooms) and are suitable for use over any type of subfloor including under floor heating.
Click system floating installation is the most common and DIY friendly installation method because it is the easiest and the fastest to do, can be installed over any type of subfloor and it does not require any special skills or prior experience in installing floors as the floors just clicks together with no need for any glue.
All floating flooring installations must use an approved underlay. Over a concrete subfloor you will need to use a underlay which has a built in vapour barrier like Cushion Plus White Underlay, while over a wooden subfloor you can use the Cushion Standard White Underlay. For installations over under floor heating we recommend using Cushion Heat Flow underlay. Superior underlays like Cushion Ultra Silver Underlay and Cushion Premium Black Underlay can be used to give better support to your new flooring which prolongs the life and also aids during installation by removing some minor imperfections from the sub-floor. Also for improved noise reduction we recommend the Cushion Acoustic Pro Underlay, bringing peace and quiet to the room.
Each board has a click profile on all four sides to join the boards together simply insert the tongue into the groove at a high angle and then push them down; the boards will then click together.
You will need to leave a 10mm expansion gap around the perimeter of the room. To maintain this gap during installation spacers are provided in the installation kits (purchased separately).
After you have installed the floor you can cover this expansion gap with scotia / beading or you can replace you old skirting boards with new ones, this gives a much more professional finish. The 10mm expansion gap also needs to be left in doorways where the floor follows through from one room to another; we have a full range of door profiles available to match your floor.
The above is a brief guideline on the installation of engineered flooring; always refer to the manufactures installation guidelines contained within packs of the flooring or visit our Flooring Manufacture Installation Guides

Series Woods XL Dark Vintage Oak Laminate Flooring Maintenance Guide
Laminate Flooring is extremely hygienic and easy to keep clean. Here are our recommendations to keep your Laminate Flooring looking beautiful for many years.
Routine cleaning requires just vacuuming, dusting with a clean, dry cloth, or a damp mop to prevent loose dirt or grit from scratching your floor's finish. Use non-staining walk-off mats by the entrance of all outside doorways. Use a damp mop to remove footmarks and most stubborn dirt. Always be sure that your mop has been thoroughly wrung out.
We recommend that you purchase a maintenance kit with your order of laminate flooring from our range of laminate flooring accessories.
