Bruce® Laminate Flooring
 
Locking Laminate Planks - Wood and Tile Visuals
 
Getting Started
Always check each board for damage before installing
 
1.  Avoid narrow pieces at the finish wall.  Measure the distance between the starting wall and the finish wall.
2.  Divide this number by the width of the board.
3.  If the remainder is less than 2 1/2" (6.35 cm), cut off 2 1/2" (6.35 cm) from the width of the first row or, to balance the room add the difference to the plank width and divide by two.
4.  Roll out the Armstrong™ Quiet Comfort or Quiet Comfort Premium Underlayment or Moisture Barrier Sheeting along the starting wall, and cut to length.  Kitchen and bathroom installation require folding the underlayment up the wall 2" (5 cm).  Place additional sections with butt seams as the installation progresses.
5.  To minimize pattern repeats in the floor, always pull from at least three cartons of flooring while installing.
 
Wall Irregularities
All wall irregularities require cutting the first or last row of boards to fit the contour of the wall.
1.  Use dividers or a spacer turned sideways 1" (2.54 cm) wide to mark the contour.
2.  Cut to shape.
3.  Position the cut piece, using the pull bar to tighten the last piece in place.
4.  Place a spacer between the end of the board and the side wall.
5.  Two tapered spacers can be used as wedges to accommodate irregular walls.
 
Cutting
1.  A good quality carbide-tipped cutting blade that has been designed for composition and laminate materials such as melamine, coreboard, or other hard, dense, man-made materials is recommended.  When extra clean cut edges are required - e.g., custom installations - you may need more elaborate cutting equipment.
2.  When using a hand saw, cut with the decorative side of the board facing up.
3.  When using power saws, the direction of the blade must cut into the decorative side of the board to minimize chipping.
4.  Use a square to keep your cut line straight.
5.  Cut the marked piece in another area to keep the sawdust away from the installation site.
 
Installing the First Row
1.  Begin on the left side of the room and work right.
2.  Lay the first full piece with the small, tongue side facing the wall.
3.  Install second and subsequent full pieces in the first row by aligning short ends of boards and locking into place.
4.  Use spacers along all sides that butt up against walls to maintain 1/4" (6.35 mm) to 1/2" (12.7 mm) expansion zone.
5.  Continue laying boards in the first row until you need to cut the last piece.
6.  Measure the distance between the wall and the face surface of the last board.  Subtract 1/4" (6.35 mm), and cut the board.  (See cutting instructions above.)
7.  If this distance is less than 8" (20.32 cm) go back to the first full plank and cut approximately 8" (20.32 cm) from the end closest to the starting wall.  This will leave a longer piece at the end of the first row.
8.  When installing tile visuals, grout lines can be aligned or off-set.  If the tiles are being balanced in the room with equal-sized tile along each wall, measurements and adjustments should be done before proceeding to second row.
 
Installing Remaining Rows
1.  Begin the second row of planks with the piece cut from the last piece in the first row.  If the piece is shorter than 8" (20.32 cm) cut a new plank in half and use it to begin the second row.  Whenever practical, use the piece cut from the preceding row to start the next row.  End joints of all boards should be staggered 8" (20.32 cm) of more.  Grout lines on planks with tile visuals can be aligned, or off-set as long as end joints are staggered. 
2.  Install the long end of the first board at an angle to the board in the previous row.  Keep this board at its natural angle slightly raised off the subfloor.  Use a scrap piece of laminate to support the row if needed.
3.  Continue installing full boards in the second row by angling the short end of the next board in the row to lock into the previous board.  Position the board so that the long side of the board is close to the boards in the previous row and overlapping the grove of the boards in the previous row.
 
Installing the Last Row
1.  The last row in the installation may need to be cut lengthwise.
2.  Place the row of planks to be fit on top of the last row of installed planks.  Use a divider or a piece of the plank as a scribe to trace the contour of the wall.
3.  Be sure to place a spacer between the marking pen and "scribe" piece of board.  This adds the 1/4" (6.35 mm) to 1/2" (12.70 mm) space you need at the finish wall.
4.  Mark where the board should be cut.
5.  If the fit at the finish wall is simple and straight, just measure for the correct width and cut.
6.  After the last row is installed, use the pull bar to tighten the joints.
7.  When appropriate, cut the underlayment even with the top of the floor.
 
Installing Under a Door Jamb or Toe Kick
Installation of locking laminate through a door jamb or under a toe kick requires the lip of the groove to be reduced in size.
1.  Using a small plane or utility knife, plane or shave off 75% of the ledge of the groove.
2.  Be careful not to trim too much.  Excessive reduction can weaken the joint.
3.  After the groove ledge has been trimmed, place the board in position laterally and lightly pull the board into place using the pull bar.
4.  Sometimes, more than one passing may be necessary in order to trim the ledge of the groove to the correct height.
5.  Joint should be tight with no movement, however a tin, 3/32" (2.4 mm) bead of glue on top of tongue only, should be used at this juncture to ensure joint integrity.
 
Finishing the Installation
1.  Remove spacers and install molding pieces.  (See Coordinated Transitions and Molding Pieces)
2.  Always predrill transitions or moldings prior to nailing. To allow the floating floor to move freely, do not fasten the trim to the laminate flooring.
3.  For everyday cleaning, vacuum or damp mop.  To remove excessive dirt buildup, use Armstrong™ Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner (S-302) or Bruce® Dura-Luster® No-Wax Floor Cleaner.
4.  DO NOT WAX OR POLISH YOUR FLOOR.

We warrant to you (the original purchaser) that for the period indicated, the floor will not stain under normal household use when maintained in accordance with our recommended maintenance guidelines.
We warrant to you (the original purchaser) that for the period indicated, the floor will resist topical water damage, meaning that the planks or tiles will not swell, delaminate or peak at the seams due to topical spills, provided that liquid is promptly wiped up and the floor is allowed to dry.
We warrant to you (the original purchaser) that for the period indicated, the floor, in its original manufactured condition, will be free from manufacturing defects.
Underlayment Warranty:
Quiet Comfort™ Premium Flooring Underlayment

Quiet Comfort Basic Underlayment
What is covered and for how long?
Armstrong guarantees to the original purchaser that for the warranty period of your Bruce flooring, or up to 30 years from the original purchase when installed under any other brand flooring, when used in an indoor setting, that our underlayment:
  • Will be free from manufacturing defects
  • Is a barrier for moisture emissions up to 5 lbs/1,000 sf/24 hours when seams are properly taped.
What will Armstrong do if any of the things listed above happen?
If you make a claim and follow our service procedures within the first year after date of purchase:
Armstrong will provide materials either to repair or replace the defective area of the floor at our option. If the floor was professionally installed, Armstrong also will pay reasonable labor costs to repair or replace the defective area of your floor.
If you made a claim after the first year after date of purchase and before the end of your limited warranty period:
Armstrong will provide or pay a percentage of the reasonable material and labor costs (if the floor was professionally installed), for a repair or replacement, at our option, of the warranted product. This percentage will be based on the number of years from the date of purchase and the remaining warranty period of the product, up to 30 years after date of purchase. For example, for a professionally installed product, which is covered by a 30 year warranty, Armstrong will pay 24/30th (or 80%) of the reasonable material and labor costs on an approved claim submitted 6 years after the date of purchase.
NOTE: Any repair or replacement is limited to colors and styles of products available at the time of repair or replacement. If the original design is no longer available, Armstrong has the right to substitute another Armstrong design of similar value. The product must be of a similar structure and the customer may choose the design.

Care Instructions
For ALL Bruce Park Avenue Collection Laminate Flooring Installations
Routine Cleaning
  • Sweep or vacuum using the wand attachment, then follow with Armstrong recommended floor care products. The Armstrong™ Hardwood & Laminate Cleaning System Kit (S-304) contains a swivel head mop, washable mop cover, and an Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner* (S-302) spray bottle.
  • In very sandy areas or at the beach, sweep or vacuum regularly to avoid surface scratching.
  • For spills or wet areas, immediately wipe with a cloth or sponge and clean with Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner.
  • Laminate Flooring, like other types of smooth floors, can become slippery when wet. Allow time to dry after cleaning.
  • Do not use soap-based detergents or "mop and shine" products, as these may leave a dull film on your floor.
  • Do not wax or polish your floor.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or scouring powder, which can scratch your floor.
Tough Spots
  • Remove tough spots like shoe polish, tar and asphalt driveway sealer with nail polish remover containing acetone **. Then wipe with a damp cloth.
  • For other stains, please call the Armstrong Customer Relations and Technical Services, at
  • 1 800 233 3823
Protect Your Beautiful New Floor
  • Place a natural or colorfast mat at outside entrances to collect tracked-in dirt and absorb excess moisture.
  • For added indentation resistance, use Armstrong floor protectors on chairs and other furniture. The heavier the item, the wider the floor protector should be.
  • You may purchase Armstrong floor care products and floor protectors at http://www.efloors.com
Kitchen and High-Moisture Areas
For all installation systems, it is generally a good idea to use 100% silicone caulk in areas of rooms where excessive moisture may be present such as at kitchen sinks, dishwashers, ice makers and around pipes.
Full Bathroom Installations
  • ArmaLock® Installation System: 100% silicone caulk must be used around the entire perimeter and 3/32" bead of glue on the top of the tongue ONLY. Full bathroom installation for residential use only.

**May be combustible/flammable; please follow instructions on label.
 
Park Avenue™ Light Commercial Warranty Coverage
 
Since Park Avenue was launched in 2007, we have been vigorously testing this product with the goal of including a light commercial warranty. We are now confident that this Premium floor can withstand the punishment of light commercial applications. Therefore, Park Avenue will now carry a 5-Year Light Commercial Warranty in addition to its existing 30-Year Residential Warranty.
This is the same light commercial warranty afforded other Bruce laminate products meaning Park Avenue , for five years from the date of original purchase in a light commercial indoor setting:
  • will not stain
  • will not fade from sunlight or artificial light
  • will not show wear
  • will be free from manufacturing defects
When the Bruce laminate warranties are reprinted, this added benefit will be included and explain complete details.
Now each collection in the Bruce laminate Premium portfolio includes a light commercial warranty.
This is just another example of how Armstrong is on a continuous path to improve its products and services to make Bruce laminate floors the easy and clear choice.
