New floor in an afternoon
Well maybe 2 days, because hubby and I aren't quite as limber as we used to be.
Truthfully, the hardest thing about installing this floating laminate flooring by Trafficmaster, is carrying the boxes up the stairs. The finished product looks just like wood flooring without all the work (or cash)...we got ours for under $2 a sf. There is virtually no waste because only the end pieces get cut and if you have them in the right direction (ask me how I know) the job is a cinch. Knee pads are a must, as is a utility knife and a square. This is the second room we've done with this product and we love it. It goes right over existing floors or tile with no underlayment. Because our house is 150+, we have rooms where this would not be suitable because the floors are not level.
