Keeping this in consideration, what is the best tool to cut laminate flooring?
Similarly, can you cut laminate flooring with a utility knife? A regular utility knife blade can be used to cut flexible, self-adhering laminate strip material. The caveat is that you must change the blades frequently so the knife cuts properly -- a dull blade will not cut effectively.
Also Know, how can I cut laminate flooring without chipping?
Correctly cutting laminate floor eliminates chipping, increasing the longevity of the flooring.
- Cover the finished side of a piece of laminate floor with low-tack masking tape.
- Make a pencil mark on the unfinished-wood side of the laminate plank at the required cut length.
- Don safety glasses.
Do I need a special blade to cut laminate?
The best circular saw blade for cutting through laminate for a kitchen counter is one with many fine teeth -- at least 40. Blades with carbide tips tend to last longer than regular steel. In addition, you should choose a narrow blade, or one with thin kerf, as it's called in saw talk.
