Technology laying laminate on wooden floor

After leveling the floor and cleaning it from debris, a springy damping tape is laid to damp sounds along the walls. So that the seams of the substrate do not fall on the joints of the boards, sheets or roll substrate roll out across the floor across the direction of the laminate lamellas.

It fits only the smooth side up and is interconnected end to end, without overlap. To avoid shearing the substrate, all sheets are fastened together with building tape. If the damper tape is not used, you can put the edges of the substrate a little to the wall a couple of centimeters. In the future, the excess is cut off. In order not to crush the porous material while walking, it is not recommended to lay the entire substrate at once – it is better to lay it out as needed.

Laminate on boards without plywood

After leveling the floor and cleaning it from debris, a springy damping tape is laid to damp sounds along the walls. So that the seams of the substrate do not fall on the joints of the boards, sheets or roll substrate roll out across the floor across the direction of the laminate lamellas.

Installing glass in a wooden house do it yourself

The process of installation of PVC windows in a wooden house involves strict adherence to technology. The first thing you need to carefully make all measurements. First, determine the distance from the floor to the window sill. To do this you need to take into account the height of the person The resulting distance equates to 80 or 90 cm. When making measurements, you should take into account a comfortable indent to the window. Sill should be higher than the dining or writing desk. When it became clear with the location of the window sill, it is worth going to the sidebar of the openings. They will be below the sill by 5 cm. This distance must be provided for the foam.

Cut the opening by applying the level. Using a plumb line to carry out the marking of vertical marks. The upper limit is determined based on the height of the structure. (more…)

Adjustable floors on logs with their own hands

Adjusting the lag is a very important operation, in which one cannot do without a level better than a laser one.

However, you can even use a hydro level, just then the adjustment will take longer.

The main task of adjustment is to align the surfaces of all bars fixed in the floor in a horizontal plane.

The height of the lag is changed by twisting the bottom fastener.

Lag adjustment with a laser beam:

  • set the floor level;
  • loosen all the nuts of the first beam and adjust the two extreme nuts to achieve a flat lag position;
  • tighten all other lower nuts to the surface of the timber;
  • tighten the upper fasteners;
  • repeat in turn with the remaining lags.

After fixing all the bars with a grinder or hacksaw, the protruding ends of the studs are cut off.

Lags on heels have mostly positive reviews. (more…)
