http://howtoinstallplankflooring.com Hey everybody Terry Bradley here again with how to install plank flooring. And today were going to look at some common problems or issues that people may have when they're installing plank floors. So come with me and we'll see how problems can arise when people install plank flooring. 4 Major problems to avoid when installing plank flooring: 1. Floor Acclimation (Prevents Buckling) 2. Proper Spacing Around structures 3. Proper Staggering 4. Room Transitions 0:35 Wood Acclimation - Make sure to adapt your new wood floor to the temperature environment inside your house. Currently outside it's about 85° and humid and inside it's about 69° with no humidity so you're going to have to let your wood acclimate, or adjust to the cooler dryer environment, for about 72 hours before you can start laying the floor. Always consult your manufacturers guidelines. This prevents floor buckling! 1:26 Spacing Around Structures - You need to leave about a half inch or so spacing around structures like walls, door jams, kitchen islands and things like that because as the house settles your floor begins to flow a little bit and you need that spacing for it to move with your house. If you don't leave enough spacing your house will settle and your floor won't have room to move and it may buckle. The spacing allows you room to lay your quarter round to keep your floor in place as your house settles. 2:21 Proper Staggering - You want to make sure you stagger floors about 6 to 8 inches on top of each other. In other words you don't want to lay your floor where each piece of wood is lined up with itself. Have you ever noticed how bricks on a house are stacked on each other? It gives the house the stability. We want to copy this because it gives your floor stability and keeps it from buckling of moving as the house settles. 3:05 Room Transitions - When you approach a vent or a doorway you have to make sure to take the correct measurements with maker tape. (See video "how to lay plank flooring" below) As beginners we need to make sure that we understand how we get this custom fit around Vents and doorways when coming out of the rooms. That eighth of an inch cut is so important when it comes to making that room transition look perfect!
