In order to find the lowest price, the necessary tools will be the cell phone and the computer with internet access. In order to clear furniture, Anthony will need a space that is at least 50 square feet by 9 feet in height for stacking the items until after the laminate is down. A furniture dolly is an acceptable tool to safely remove large pieces. Removing the carpet will require safety gloves, pliers, utility knife, pry bar, safety glasses, a vacuum, a hammer, and a floor scraper (HardwoodInstaller.Com, 2011). Cleaning the subfloor will require a broom, a vacuum, a mop, disinfectant cleaner, and a bucket. Laying down the laminate will require that flooring be bought, as well as the padding, a chop saw, a table saw, measuring tape, flooring mallet, carpenter's pencils, a laminate flooring pull bar, and a tapping block (Smith, 2007). Trim work will necessitate purchasing the trim and nails as well as a nail gun. Finally, the clean up process will require laminate flooring cleaner and a dry mop.
