what if the seams don't "click"? I have tried three times and as I lay it I get gaps in the previous rows. Frustrated. I did parquay (?Spelling) years ago and it really clicked. I am using the kensington manor. HELP!

Hi so when you have 3 different size planks in one box they are fitted randomly across the floor and are not used just for the ends thanks

Laminate floors that have 3 different lengths in the boxes are designed this way to make them look more like the traditional random length solid wood flooring. There is no particular design or pattern. For best appearance place the planks randomly into the installation field mixing up the sizes as best as possible. St James recommends that the first and last plank in each row should not be less that 12”. Normally before installation we will lay out 4 or 5 rows to see what the length of the last board in the row will be. If the last board will be less than 12” then re-cut the first board in that row. Make sure to stagger the plank seams 6” apart from row to row so they do not line up. Seams should never be closer than 3 inches according to St James instructions.


Hi, The dream home Szechuan Ming that I purchased, comes in three sizes for the planks. What is the ideal design that can be used with these three sizes. There are equal number of each size - so for example, I cannot use just the long planks most of the time - I have to use the other sizes as well.

Thanks in advance

What "exactly" does the warranty cover?
