Installation Blueprint - How it Works

  • Make a drawing using either your own software or use the FREE software I provide inside Laminate University. I even have a video showing how to use it! 
  • Share the file of the drawing inside Laminate University
  • Include any questions you would like me to go over with you
  • I will then make you a custom Installation Blueprint of your project, using a screencast video
  • I will show you where to start, share my opinion on plank direction, walk you through the steps of YOUR installation and answer any questions you may have.
  • I will also show you what videos you can to watch for the different steps
  • I will warn you of any problem areas and give you the solutions to get you through them.
  • BEST FEATURE- use it throughout your installation as you move from room to room. You can make a timeline of the video and watch as you go through your installation.  It’s like I am there with you!

Here is a video showing How it Works-

It is a great tool to add to your arsenal

You can see that the Installation Blueprint is a very valuable tool to have during your installation.

You can watch the video as you move through your installation and I guide you along the way.

You can also ask questions throughout your installation and we can always add more information to your Installation Blueprint.

It really makes your installation, worry free!

I also like to use video to answer your questions- Take a look

It makes sense to answer questions this way

Get detailed answers to your questions, that’s what we all want, right? 

Of course that is what we want! 

I like to answer questions visually, it makes it a lot easier for you and for me! This is a very useful tool and I am sure that you will enjoy using it. 

You can ask your questions right inside the University and your question will be answered and a link to a screencast video will be given to you. 

It’s that simple!

Where to start


There is planning involved if you want to have a successful plank installation.

My where to start guide will definitely help! 

You will also be able to share drawings with me and I will help you get started.

Installing the First few rows of plank

Once you figure out where to start, the next step is pretty obvious, install the first few rows.

The first few rows can be a challenge to get together and then into their proper position

and if done correctly you can expect a smooth installation.

This step is the key to your entire installation and in this video, I will guide you with a few but, simple steps

Installing into Multiple rooms AVOIDING TRANSITIONS

Most installations consist of multiple rooms 

I am sure that most would agree that it would be nice not to use transitions in those doorways.

This can be done!

and as a matter of fact, this is exactly how I do it on all of my installations and you can too. 

I will show you how to flow the plank into other rooms without using transitions.

If this is done correctly, you will never have an issue.

Installing planks into doorways

The most difficult areas to install laminate or vinyl plank is in a doorway.

Doorways that go into closets, bedrooms, stairways, exterior doors and ect….

They don’t have to be difficult!

I will show you a few tips that I use to help make this an easy task for you!

Installing plank in a hallway

Hallways can be the biggest challenge in a Laminate or Vinyl Plank installation.

There are doors, closets, twists and turns and a lot of cutting involved.

I have suffered the tears of a hallway installation and you do not need too!!

I will show you how to do this the easiest way possible. I have developed a method that simplifies a hallway installation. I know this video will be a lifesaver for you!

Easy Measuring Guide for all plank cuts

I will show you how to easily measure cuts that need to be made from row to row.

I will also show you how to mark and cut planks that go against walls, into door jambs, around corners around vents and more. 

All by using one quick and easy technique.

Floor Prep

Most projects need some sort of floor prep done before you can install your plank. 

There are some projects that need just a little prep and some that need a major overhaul to the floor. 

That is okay! I got you covered here. I will share with you some great techniques and tips on how to get this done. 

I will also share with you the products you should use so, you don’t buy the garbage that is out there. 

I know that this can be overwhelming to anyone who has never done this before but, with my help and my video, you will definetly get you through this. 

Installing Plank in rooms with angles

A project with angled walls and cabinets can be enough to scare any DIY’er and even a PRO away from trying this on their own. 


Relax, because I have just the video for you! I will walk you through many different situations that will apply to your situation. 

I will share with you some super easy methods to get you right past these angles. They are really not as tough as they would seem to be. 


I will share with you where transitions are needed and where they are not.

I will also show you the different types of transitions that are available to you and how to install them.

Sadly, most of the time a transition that is needed, needs to be modified some way or another. But the good news is, I am here to help with that! 

I share many tips with you on this subject and I will help walk you through it.
