When it comes to laying tile or laminates, Masaryktown floor masons know that it is not as easy as laying a few sections of flooring together and calling it a floor. There is a lot of extra steps and preparation that is needed in order to securely lay flooring in a room without damaging the tiles or making the job looked rushed. When working with laminate tiles, floor masons have to keep in mind that they are easy to install like tiles but they are more fragile and tend to have qualities more associated with hardwood flooring.
Floor Masons Should Have Gel-Filled Knee Pads
Knee pads are an important item to have in the construction or plumbing industry as a lot of professionals in these fields spend a lot of their time hunched over and working on the floor. Not only are gel-filled knee pads more comfortable than the ones professionals might wear for roofing and landscaping but with hard knee pads and laminates, Masaryktown floor masons can end up scratching the floor tiles while trying to prep and install them. Another great reason that gel knee pads are essential when doing manual labor is the fact that help distribute the force of your body weight better than other knee protection options.
Using Proper Tape for Laminate Floors
When it comes to laying laminate flooring, all underlayment seams must be taped. One might think that as long as the seams are sealed they can use any kind of tape, but this is not true. Some Packing tapes and house wrapping tapes are too rigid and may cause annoying crackling or popping noises with each step someone takes. When professional floor masons install laminates, Masaryktown professionals are recommended to use tape that is recommended by the manufacturer of the flooring or possible buy an underlayment that has built-in seam tape.
