When you do a home improvement project is STEP 1 to throw away the instructions?

 

“Oh, instructions you are my friend! How I long to know you, so well I can fly without you.” 

As a young flooring installer I loved reading all the instructions. I went to every workshop, read every flyer that came with materials. Hardwood and sheet vinyl often had instruction in the packaging or within the material package.

I worked with many old-timers and was a wealth of useful knowledge and over the years was promoted to installation supervisor of the same men that trained me.

I still enjoy keeping up with the changing industry and a large part of that is reading the directions. I am no longer reading them because I am going to install them but because I am going to recommend them, sell them and trust a qualified installer is going to perform an educated, quality installation.

Read them over and over until you could write them!
