Spring and fall tend to be the best times of the year to replace your residential laminate flooring. Read on to find out why you should plan your laminate flooring installation during these months.
You’ll have plenty of ventilation and fresh air
If you are getting new flooring installed, you may want the windows open for ventilation to get rid of fumes and unpleasant odors. There are a lot of chemical processes involved during laminate flooring installation, such applying floor adhesive, stains, sealants, adhesive removers, and so forth.
All these chemicals can emit toxic odors and fumes so proper ventilation is important.
You’ll be able to have the doors open
When you’re getting flooring installed, the doors will be open a lot. The flooring installers will carry out the old flooring while carrying in the new one.
These professionals will be going out frequently to get tools or supplies from their truck. If this installation process takes place in summer, you home will heat up really quick and your AC will have to work overtime. And if it happens in winter, you home will get super chilly inside.
So, if you want new laminate flooring installed before the holidays or in time for the summer, plan ahead to ensure the best results.
How long does it take to install laminate flooring in Alameda County?
The duration it takes to install a laminate floor depends on the size of the job. You also have to add time for laying the flooring through doorways and potential obstructions.
Begin by giving yourself at least 3 days after the flooring installers unpack the flooring and before they lay it to give it time to adjust to the surface. This adjustment is essential to prevent expansion of the particleboard core which is susceptible to moisture.
During this period, the installers will prepare the floor by leveling any uneven sections, eliminating any existing baseboards, undercutting the doorjambs, carefully cleaning the subfloor and placing a vapor barrier.
Laying the Flooring
Next, the installers will lay the flooring. To give you a general idea, it usually takes 2 or 3 hours to lay the flooring in a 10-by-20-foot room. It will take an extra hour or two to fit the flooring around cabinets or other obstacles in your bathroom or kitchen.
You can multiply this figure by the number of similar-sized rooms (where you are getting the flooring installed) to get a realistic estimation for the total required time. Expert installers can finish a thousand square-foot space in one day (or two at max).
