Are you planning on having beautiful new hardwood flooring installed at your home in the near future? If so, then you may be wondering what tools and materials will be needed to get the job done, whether you plan on attempting it yourself or simply want to provide the necessary materials for the experts who will be coming out to install the flooring for you.
There are a variety of tools and materials necessary to install hardwood or vinyl floor. For starters, of course it is necessary to have the proper amount of flooring needed to cover the area that it is going to be installed in. It usually does not hurt to purchase a few extra square feet of the flooring to ensure that it does not run out.
In addition, anyone installing this type of flooring will need a staple gun, pliers, pencil or chalk, and a measuring tape. The measuring tape is one of the most important tools to have when installing flooring, as it will be used to ensure that boards are cut to the right size and shape and that as little flooring can be wasted as possible. It is always best to double and triple check measurements before making any cuts. Lines should be drawn with the pencil or chalk and not anything permanent that will stain the wood itself.
In addition, a glue dissolving solvent is also good to have when laying the wood. In addition to the nails, it will provide a way for the flooring to stay securely in place for many years to come. Finally, having a broom handy for sweeping and cleaning up debris once finished is always a wise idea for those who like to keep the work area tidy.
