Materials Herein describes the tools that will be needed to complete each step of the project. 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.
