Measuring your home for SPC flooring is a crucial step in ensuring that you have the right amount of flooring material for your space. Here are the steps you can follow:
- Measure the room’s length and width: Measure the room’s length and width in feet or meters and write it down. This will give you the total square footage of the room.
- Consider cuts and obstacles: Take into account any cuts or obstacles such as doorways, cabinets, and baseboards. Measure the width of these areas and subtract them from the total square footage of the room.
- Add 10% for waste: It’s always recommended to add 10% extra to your total square footage measurement to account for cuts, waste, and any future replacements.
- Check the manufacturer’s specifications: Make sure to check the manufacturer’s specifications for the SPC flooring you’re interested in. Some manufacturers may have different requirements for the recommended overlap of their flooring.
By following these steps, you can ensure that you have the right amount of SPC flooring material for your home. Don’t hesitate to consult a professional or reach out to the manufacturer if you have any questions or concerns. A proper measurement will ensure a smooth installation process and a beautiful end result.
