Preparation is Key to Installing Your Pergo Wood Floors - When you are getting ready to begin it is important to have everything you will need on hand. You will of course need the flooring, and the underlay. The underlay will help with moisture control and also gives you a barrier between the new floor and the old floor. This is very helpful in eliminating that echo sound you sometimes get from wood flooring. The tools you will need are a chop saw, a pull bar, measuring tape, and a mallet. One note, Pergo wood flooring is very hard so make sure that you have a good carbide blade in your chop saw, and the higher the tooth count on the blade, the smoother the cut.
Follow these steps for successful installation. Before you get to work make sure youve selected the correct size and type of pipe, fittings, and solvent. Put all the materials and tools in a well-ventilated work area because solvent cement releases harmful vapors. Fittings should be matched after the pipes have been cut in order to make sure they connect perfectly. Once the pieces are cemented they are permanent, any mistake leads to a pipe being cut so align them well beforehand. The distance between the faces of the fittings should be measured. Also measure the depth of fitting holes and add to the first measurement. This makes the total length. Flexible plastic tubing - commonly made of polyurethane materials - are great for cold water plumbing use and uses whereas polybutelyne materials are the preferred choices by plumbing professionals for hot water piping . This is especially the case when it comes to hot water pipes leading from or even adjacent to hot water heaters -both gas and electric. If you use a clamping arrangement to attach an insert fitting , as opposed to bonding cements, then take good care and attention to tighten the 2 clamps fully with a screwdriver of your choice and preference. Smokey the bear says fire prevention is always best and highly preferable. Highly trained and certified professional plumbers will advise you that even at lower temperature on the scale , rigid plastic pipe and pipes carrying hot water become slightly flexible . Hence these pipes should be supported with clamps every 3 feet approximately and as well allowed some wriggle room: To attach an insert fitting simply join the two by a good rigid insert fitting along with two small clamps. The procedure is to simply slip a clamp in a loose fitting arrangement approx one half of an inch for each of the two pipes being fitted or joined together.
