In this video, we learn how to install a locking hardwood floor with Lowe's. First, prepare the sub floor before you begin installing the floors. After this, grab all of the tools you need to install the flooring properly. Place spacers between the flooring and the walls and start to lay it down. Lock the planks together on the first row. Then, lock the sides to the next row and use weights to keep the floors from moving. The ends must be 6 inches apart on each row. For a locking floor, cut off the front end and not the groove end with a circular saw. When installing the rest of the floor mix planks from the other boxes so you don't have similar colors and grains. When finished, cut the planks to fit the rest of the flooring and re-apply your base boards to the room.
