Question armstrong laminate

Instructions state a t-moulding spacer needs to be placed if area to be covered is greater than 26 feet in width. The width of the room we are installing is 29 feet. Does anyone have knowledge about this?

Do we need a spacer since it is only a "little" bigger than rec.?

I think it would look better without a spacer, but don't want the floor to come apart.

Personally I would risk it (for 3 feet) - unless you have a convenient place to put this strip.

It wont cause the floor to come apart - but it may cause it to "buckle". The reason for this strip is for expansion and contraction.

Leave a little bigger expansion space around the perimeter.

Why not use quick step floors which can run over 40 ft without the need for any transitions?

Remember if there is ever a warranty problem if you do not adhere to the instructions for install you have ZERO warranty.
