Adequate spacing should be left, about a1/4 inch, between the wall and the panels to be properly installed. The installation can be done by a professional, or it can be a DIY project. The panels will need to be staggered so that it will provide you will a strong floor support. When you use the cut off from the previous row, it will help you save money by not having to use as many panels.
