Proper Installation Process of Wooden Laminated Flooring

Home is a single word, which is made up through a lot of small things. These little things should join perfectly to express your efforts. Each thing in your house should be well maintained and arranged properly. Flooring is also one of the main things which cannot be ignored after visiting someone’s house. Out of the many available flooring options, people are selecting laminated wooden flooring now-a-days. These laminate wooden sheets come along with many benefits compared to other floorings and hardwood flooring. Unlike hardwood flooring,you can get them in many designs which are covered by the laminated coating on them, they are inexpensive, more durable and maintained easily too (using some cautions). However, if they are not installed properly, they can downgrade your impression on others. With the help of some few steps,this flooring can be easily fixed in the exact look you want to show to your guests.

Step 1: Prepare them for installation: Shrinkage is the main problem may people experience after the installation of wooden laminate sheets. To avoid this, one should always put the opened box in the room at least for 48 hours. This may seem to be strange but according to experts, this will help them to adjust with the room/ area temperature and you will not have to deal with shrinkage problem in future.

Step 2: Check out the surface: While the wooden laminates are adjusting with the temperature, you can check for the cleanness on the surface. It is always better to clean the surface area prior to the installation, so that the wooden flooring will occupy the same space without any problem. Also, make sure the floor is totally dry before the installation.

Step 3: Set a barrier for moisture and bring out the floor padding: To fight with the moisture and provide better strength to laminated wooden flooring, lay down a plastic lining on the floor. After that bring the moisture resistant tape and cover this plastic lining. Next you have to bring the foam floor padding on it and tape it too. This will prevent squeaking and creaking noise, but make sure to check for any overlapping, that may cause unnecessary rise in the floor.

Step 4: Check the planks for unwanted length: There might be some planks which do not fit into the row. You need to trim them first, so that they occupy the correct space.

Step 5: Let’s prepare the first row and put spacer: Bring the wooden board and start laying them from the longest wall. Keep an eye on their joints and alignments. You also need to place spacer on all side, for the wooden expansions (preferably a 3/8”)

Step 6: Give shape to the next row: After finishing with first row, come on the second one. Cut a short piece of wooden plank (close to 8”) and lay it down in parallel to the first row and place a spacer. Bring a hammer and hit this until it completely joint into the first row. Do this process for all other rows as well, until you finish the whole room flooring and do not forget to put spacer at the end of each row of laminated flooring.

What Type of Wooden Board is Ideal for Your Home?

Man-made wood boards are getting name widely due to their multipurpose usage. Selecting these boards for your home could be a tough task if you do not know much more about them. Some provide moisture free surface along with your own printed material, on the other side some could also help you to build a thing which will stay long enough. There are also some cautions along with these particle boards and require maintenance too. We are going to share some well-known wood boards.

  • Plywood: We have selected this at first place because it is the well-known name among the others. This is made through the tiny wood veneers, which further glued together at certain pressure on a certain temperature. This process will form a thicker, flexible and more flat sheet. This layer is went through a lathe, so that the extra thin layer could be removed. These boards don’t shrink or warped due to change in atmospheric moisture. These are divided into WBP (water and boil proof) and Marine (used for boat building and exposed situations). Plywood is the best cost effective furniture material, which can be a good product for wardrobe, dressing, build in media centers and bookcases. Apart from that these can be used in roofing and laminated wooden flooring too, as can carry the load and also work as a skinny layer before laying the tiles. However, their unattractive edges must be covered with a molding or veneer to gain the better look.
  • Block board: On second, we have blockboard in our list. Unlike these boards are made through the solid wood waste and covered by veneer both on its back and front. This wood waste come from the softwood trees like pine, mango or cedar, thus these are inexpensive and light weighted. Unlike plywood,blockboard is less prone to bending from the middle and it can take both nails as well as screws. These boards are also available in large size compared to plywood and supports resistance from fungi, water, chemical and heat. Talking about the usages, it can be used where furniture length is too long like panels, benches, tables and designer door. However, sometimes there is a gap in between these solid woods and due to that the quality and strength of the furniture get affected.
  • Particleboards: These boards are made by bonding the wood waste particles along with adhesive to form a smoother surface board. These wood particles include small wood chips and saw wood waste. Particle boards are available in normal, medium and high densityform. They are used in fire doors, self-assembly furniture, wall lining and partitions. But they tend to breakdown and swell easily once getting in contact with water.
  • Medium Density Fiberboards: Theses are generally hardboard, glued along with wood fibers under pressure and heat. Unlike plywood or particle board, MDF is flat, dense and has no knots. Also there is no internal void or wood grain like blackboard. But these are developed using for maldehydes, which can cause skin allergy, respiratory and eye disease. MDF board provides fine grained wood quality without having a single grain in them. Due to the high glue content these can even dull the steel cutting tool. However, these boards can be broken into pieces while inserting nails and screw due to this glue content. These can be used to make storage units, wall panels and display cabinets.

How to Choose The Right MDF Board

Medium Density Fiberboard, normally known as MDF boards are the first choice when it comes to choose the pocket friendly wooden furnishing for your home flooring and panels. These boards are generally made through the waste particles of both soft and hard wood. Due to that these provide feel of hardwood but save lot of money for you. One can experience the same polish or high gloss, touch and hardwood quality by selecting these for home decoration. Today, these boards are getting enormous fame and there are many industries offering versatile MDF, but to choose the right board for your flooring always remains tough task. Popularity brings more demand and less supply situation, which can impact the quality too. Apart from that there are dedicated MDF boards for every work, so it is always better to do some work prior to start your work. To save your precious time on this, we are explaining some detailed features, which can help you to look out for the right product.

  • Exterior Observation: Sometimes your first impression is enough to portray your character. The same thing goes correct prior to selecting these boards too. To identify the best boards among several wooden boards, you must observe the smooth finish. Unlike particle boards, MDF uses very small wood waste and hence the surface brings you the perfect exterior look. On the other hand, these boards provide a uniform color attribute, which provide additional support in polish.
  • Take a close look on the box content: It is well known in wooden industry that there are some content which are always kept away from customer side. MDF boards are developed by using formaldehyde along with wood particles. If these boards are manufactured through low formaldehyde than you can feel safer compared to those where the fixation uses more formaldehyde. Higher formaldehyde provides better finish to board but makes you live in a hazard prone environment. The side of this chemical can be easily checked online. We suggest you to check the box/ pamphlet details of MDF manufacturer closely because no one wants to build a thing for his child that is unhealthy for their house members.
  • Ask for the quality result: Particle boards, plywood, harwood, laminated board or any other wooden items are given a standard quality clearance certificate. This quality paper explains how the product performance is calculated under diverse situations. You are going to select a wood material for your home, and it should be able to perform under every critical condition. Prior to your final decision, it could be better to check whether the MDF board is certified water resistance, able to deal with scratches, what will be there impact when contacted to fire and does they are able to provide a last long durability to your home? One should check for the green and red label on the board, which represent fire and water resistant respectively.

Whats is HDHMR and Advantages of this Boards

Before explaining anything about HDHMR, one should know the true meaning of this word. HDHMR stands for High Density High Moisture Resistance. It is basically an upgraded term of plywood, used to develop tough and robust wooden usage. Explaining the definition, HDHMR board is made by combining fiber chips, forest wood waste through a homogeneously construction process. These fiber chips are pressed together to form a single layer, removing small wood content to form a robust higher density board. These boards are mainly used where moisture and mould wooden boards are required like kitchen shutters, packing industry furniture, outdoor fixture, etc.

The first main attractive thing about HDHMR board we want to focus is, water resistance. As you can see in the name the term, High density is achieved through the combination of the hard wood particle board along with the special glue pressing technique. These hardwood particles when pressed through the glue, they form a unique water resistance layer through the board. Due to this feature, these boards will take over plywood in kitchen furniture soon and can be used as laminated flooring.

Due to pressing technique small unusable particle get removed from these boards, which makes them termite free too. In plywood making process some content of wood get stuck, which provide easy access to termites in terms of food; but if you are using HDHMR board than there is no need to worry about termites. Due to pressing technique of HDHMR board, several small fibers of wood combines till the time it required density is not achieved.

HDHMR board has a multi dimensional bond with single layer glue architecture, hence it provide higher moisture resistance compared to normal plywood. Where normal plywood catches moisture and there layers start to peel off, HDHMR board will not losses its strength.

Unlike block board, HDHMR boards are made with fiber chips and come with pre paint/polish surface. This feature helps them in veneer pasting along with smooth finish and glossy shine. The high gloss is again protested by water resistant feature.

HDHMR board is developed using homogeneously method, which add benefits of carved, mould and routed during the construction process. Because of the multidimensional bond the HDHMR boards comes with higher screw strength, sometime close to 10 times more than usual block board and plywood. Also when talking about the cost effectiveness, HDHMR take over on other wooden boards.

Compare to others, they are available in half of the cost.  One should also not forget that all the boards are made up using wood chips/ fiber or peeled trunk. HDHMR board has one unique difference compared to others. The construction process of HDHMR board uses fiber chips taken from plantation trees, agriculture waste and 95% of forest wood waste. This unique process excludes the hardwood peeled trunk unlike the block board and plywood.

In the nutshell, these points make HDHMR the first choice for homemakers who want to have designer doors and give luxury look to their house.

Particle Board and Its Usage

Particle boards are created with the combination of wood waste including wood chips, wood fiber, sugar cane fiber and saw dust. These wood scraps are grounded on each other along with glue and go through a pressure machine to form boards.

As these boards are totally made from machines, they can be prepared as per desired measurement.

While the making process, these boards are covered with glue formation, which again provide a pre laminated layer (usually for decoration purpose).
