Flooring Tools and Accessories for Proper Installation

Installing your new flooring like a pro is easy when you start with the proper flooring tools and accessories. The Home Depot carries all of the products you need from the top name brands you trust. Underlayment, adhesive, grout, and sealers help to provide that flawless finished product. Getting your new flooring cut to size is easy when you use carpet tools, a laminate floor cutter or a tile saw.

Types of Flooring Accessories

Underlayments
The type of subfloor you have in the room helps to determine the proper underlayment. Underlayments can act as a moisture barrier and help to prepare the subfloor for the flooring you are placing on top. This is especially important for basement waterproofing.

Adhesives
Glue-down carpets, hardwood floors, and engineered hardwood floors require a layer of adhesive.

Mortar, Grout, and Caulk
Tile and brick work is not complete without caulk sealing the spaces between the tiles. Grout and mortar comes in many different varieties and can easily be tinted to coordinate with the overall look of the tile. Caulk is a final step in many flooring applications and helps to seal any final gaps between the flooring and the baseboards or quarter round.

Sealers
Many natural stone tiles need a layer of sealer to help to prevent dirt and stains on the porous material.

Underfloor Heating
Keep your hard floor warm and cozy throughout the cold-weather months by prepping the area with underfloor heating. This thin underlayment features a warming coil that helps to warm the floor from beneath when it is turned on.

Floor Mouldings and Trims
A professional floor installation wouldn't be complete without the proper edging and trim for the job. Tile edge trim provides a clean finished edge and allows for smooth floor transitions. Floor T moulding and trims are imperative with hard floors such as vinyl, laminate, and hardwood as well.

Flooring Tools
Cutting tile, hardwood, and carpet to size is easier when you have the proper tools on hand to complete the job.

Tile Tools
Cutting tile requires precision. Tabletop tile saws are compact in size and help to trim tiles to the proper size. Manual tile cutters are also an option. Suction cups, replacement blades, tile nippers, tile leveling systems, and trowels are also necessary.

Carpet Tools
Carpet tape, razor blades, tack strips, and knee kickers are a few of the essential carpet tools needed to complete the job. Stair tools and a heat bond iron are also handy to have on hand.

Wood and Laminate Tools
Laying down hard flooring is easier when you have a flooring cutter, pull bar, level, rubber mallet, and square at the ready.

Installing new flooring is a great way to completely refresh the look of a room. Hardwood floors deliver a traditional elegance while plush carpet makes any living area cozier. Take advantage of the professional installation services offered by The Home Depot or make flooring installation a fun weekend warrior project to do yourself.
