Hello,

We are currently renovating our first home and have basically gutted it - all trim, doors, and floors have been removed. We are about to install our new flooring which is a cork click ' n lock panel floating floor system but want to know if we need to reinstall the doors before doing so or should we install the doors after the flooring goes in? From what we have read, it sounds like we are supposed to undercut the door jamb and slide the flooring underneath but that is with the door installed already. Two main concerns are scratching of the floor and the correct placement of the transitions between the bedrooms and hallway if we install the doors after the floor.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,

lolli & Tim

Much simpler in a case like this to install the floors then hang the doors.
