  1. This is not laying hardwood… change your title.

  2. It's backwards.
    People don't plan to fail. They simply fail to plan. 🤓👍🇺🇲

  3. Good job ! Thanks for the insight!

  4. I chose not to give it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. I have viewed this video past the half mark, and I never heard once about prepping the space. I did here that you didn't want to use any glue, and just wanted to work with the click and lock. Is there some suggestions for prepping the space before you begin.

  5. Does this work if the floor isn't fully level in all locations as the pieces will be clicked together?

  6. How is your Malibu flooring holding up over the years? I saw there is a click/lock version that you used, and also one that is tongue/groove. The tongue/groove version has a thicker wear layer (2mm) vs the 1.2mm on the click/lock version, but it would also be a little more work to install.

  7. Engineered Floors have a short life compared to Real Hardwood which lasts for decades if not centuries. That's why there so cheap.

  8. Unfortunately this video is about laminate flooring, not hardwood flooring. Whole different kettle of fish.

  9. After watching that, there's no way I'd tackle it myself. There were a few problems that were only easy to solve because a professional was on hand to say how to solve them.

  10. Why do you cover the floor with that material

  11. So if start on one side you have a full width board but what happens if you get to the other side of the room and only a half width board will fit? How do you figure this out so it doesn't look weird?

  12. What did you do with the wood “spacers” after you were done? Did you remove them? Thanks!

  13. This video is completely useless for a beginner.

  14. How is it holding up without gluing the tongue and groove together?

  15. I have all of my flooring… The contractor who was supposed to install them had an emergency and had to fly home. I still have the flooring. I want to install them myself. This is the perfect starter video. Hopefully by the end I see everything I need to know .. to install them. Love the vibe of this video 🤍 such easy explanation

  16. This was not a very good tutorial..skipped over important aspects
