Flooring installed in a continuous length. If the length of the flooring is very long, i.e. the full length of a mini home 74 ft., should a transition strip be installed somewhat mid way, to break up the length?
If it is laminate flooring it never hurts to PL the floor consistently throughout the install. If it is hardwood your perimeter should always be screwed down and screw holes filled with wood filler. This allows the inside hardwood not to shift.
Stewart here of sct floorcoverings. You do not need a transition in the room, but it is important to make sure their is a good expansion space between the walls and the flooring around the entire perimiter of the room.
On an area the size you mentioned on your post, I would recomend at least an inch expansion space-preferably an inch and a half. The reason for the expansion space is that wood flooring will expand when the air becomes humid, the expansion space allows the wood to spread out. If their is no expansion space cut the pressure will go back into the flooring area and the flooring will start heaving and separating over time.
Hi Sharon. My name is Patrick from the carpet place here in Stratford. Yes it should be broken after 25 to 30 ft so that your floor get to much of a bounce in it. Most laminate specify this in there warranty.
