Laminate.

DYI

Ease of installation is one of the features that has made laminate flooring the fastest growing product in the flooring industry. VersaLock® and LocNPlace® from Shaw or Amstrong¹s award-winning ArmaLock® system are among the latest in installation technologies that allow you to install your laminate flooring without nails or glue.

For Shaw laminate, the downloadable instruction manuals will provide the information you¹ll need to install your new laminate flooring. You'll also receive instructions for installing your laminate flooring in doorways, on stairs, and around pipes and fixtures, as well as the underlayment options available from Shaw Floors.

Armstrong ArmaLock® system requires no glue* and can be installed over most existing floors. Each piece aligns automatically, making installation easier than ever. The locking installation requires no waiting time before moving appliances or furniture back on the floor. And furthermore, there¹s no messy glue residue or fumes. *Except full bathroom installations. (Must use laminate glue, S-1800). Downloadable installation manuals are also available for Armstrong laminate products.

Remember that these manuals offer general guidelines. Check with your Great Floors associate to learn if the product you¹ve selected has specific guidelines you should follow.


DYI

Hardwood.

With hardwood flooring, you have several different installation options. Depending on the product you choose, hardwood flooring can be either nailed down, glued down, or installed with the floating installation technique. Consider your installation options as you make your product selection. Great Floors will be able to help you decide what will work best for your specific needs.

Great Floors offers both solid and engineered hardwood flooring. The type of flooring you select will help determine your installation option.

Solid, like the name implies, is milled from a single 3/4² thick piece of hardwood. Engineered is actually produced with three to five layers of hardwood. If you¹re deciding to install your hardwood flooring yourself, the downloadable instruction manuals at the manufacturer¹s site will provide the information you'll need.

But remember, these are general guidelines. Once you have purchased a specific product, you will need to make sure there are not product-specific guidelines you need to follow.


Other Products.

Easy to follow installation instructions, many complete with videos, are available for ceramic tile and stone, vinyl and carpet tiles on manufacturer or general interest DIY internet sites. Your Great Floors sales associate can assist you in locating the installation information designed for the product you select.
