I'll get whole flooring and all interior doors replaced for the main level
of my house. Laminate to replace carpet, do it myself. For doors, get a
carpenter to install pre-hungs. Doors include 4-fold doors for a couple of
I think the best sequence is:
1) remove existing doors/frames.
2) lay laminate flooring
3) install doors on new flooring.
Advise please. Thanks.
That's the way I would do it. It means I wouldn't have to fit the flooring
around the door jambs.
By the way, look at engineered flooring before you make up your mind on
the laminate. The price is similar for some grades, and the engineered
stuff can be refinished.
I just did this in my home. Ripped out doors, installed floor,
installed new doors. BTW, if you can install laminate/engineered
floors on your own... you can install a pre hung door. it's super
easy. google it...
