Protect your investment
You’ve invested a lot in your new flooring. Whether it’s a laminate, bamboo or engineered floor, you’ll need the right tools and accessories to ensure your floor’s long life and lasting looks, both during installation and afterward. When you're looking to install yourself, you're going to want reliable tools that make a difference to your work, and to your peace of mind. BuildDirect has everything you need, all in one place.
Get started quickly and easily
Here are some ideas that will help you create comfort in your living and working space by making floor installation and care much easier. A flooring installation kit is an indispensable part of your do-it-yourself installation, and help you lay your boards just like the professionals. Kits come with pull bars to easily tighten the hold between the boards, tapping blocks to efficiently protect your boards when tapping them into place, and spacers to ensure an evenly laid out installation every time.
Lay it down right
If you have engineered or laminate flooring, you’ll also need underlayment. This is a free-floating way to ensure that your floors are secure, because the underlayment is actually not attached to the floor. Choose between solid cork floor underlayment, foam or foam/film flooring, as well as our specialized Floor Muffler brand floor underlayment complete with a moisture barrier.
Make it stick
You can achieve a glue-down installation that any professional flooring installer would be proud to call their own with our glues and adhesives. Whether you're gluing down your wood floor, or simply using a floor joint adhesive to strengthen the hold between your wood floor boards, adhesives from BuildDirect will give you extra strength and optimal stability that you can rely on.
Create a lasting space
Once you’ve laid your floor, help it shine with an all-in-one floor cleaning kit. Kits come with dry mops with replaceable terry cloth heads to help you keep your floor looking great for years to come. In addition, our approved wood and laminate flooring cleaners will get you the results you want without smearing, smudging, or waxy build-up. With these products at your fingertips, you'll make having a pristine floor that looks like new years after they've been installed.
