Installing Flooring

Get the basics for installing wood, carpet, and sheet flooring in our comprehensive flooring installation guide. We've gathered our best tips for installing carpet and carpeting a stairway—and step-by-step instructions on how to stretch and trim carpet. Learn to repair damaged carpet sections, too. Read our how-to guide for sheet-flooring installation, and learn about patching up sheet flooring instead of replacing it entirely. Laminate flooring can be an easily completed do-it-yourself project, and with our handy guide, you can replace your flooring in a weekend or less. Stairs can be tricky, but we have instructions for laying laminate flooring perfectly the first time. Check out our tips for repairing your existing flooring, too. Our carpet cleanup guide will keep your flooring in top shape and keep it lasting for years to come. Still not sure what type of flooring suits your style, budget, and lifestyle?
