Howdy to all. I was out in the shop this morning trying to find something and look what I found instead. A nice surprise. Wasn't it Nick that made the cups? Sure do miss that guy. Don't know about the hats. Anyway, it brought back some great memories of folks, some not with us anymore unfortunately. Life is going well for me and I hope everyone here is doing well also ..read more

Engineered Hardwood: Uptown Floors; other brands
Flooring Forum

Hi, I am shopping for engineered hardwood flooring for my 1200 sq ft townhouse. I "should" get LVP for the downstairs because I board dogs, but I want one floor throughout and I don't want that much plastic. I do have CoreTec tiles in my kitchen and bathrooms and laundry room. I am confused about the various finishing products and processes, the "insides" of the flooring sandwich, the refinish ability, and the value of getting a product made in USA or Canada or Europe. I would love a floor... Read more ..read more

Carpet to tile transition
Flooring Forum

I’ve got a tile to carpet transition and I’m planning on tucking and glueing the carpet in the gulley. The tile is higher than the carpet, so I’m planning on using a carpet shim, a tack strip and the top of the carpet should be level with the top of the tile, right? Will tucking the carpet in the gulley work with Berber carpet? The shim should be tight against the tile, and the tack strip about 3/8 inch from the tile, right? Thanks ..read more

I measured a very nice large home on Friday. It's going to have a wide plank LVP throughout. After drawing the layout, I went around with my 6' angle aluminum straight edge..... Oh dear The slab has 1/4 inch wide saw cuts about 10 feet both directions. Some may have been separate pours. Where they meet, some edges have curled up a little or one side sunk a little bit. The home is 36 by 75 and only 45' is concrete. Where the wood framing and concrete meet up, it's fine. The slab joints... Read more ..read more

Two jobs, one my measure, the second, was the shop owner.....ran a little short. Same product. Mine was about 1200sq feet. The product measures 5 feet by 9" wide. Is waste because of the width our issue? They add 8% to my measurements. I've always measured the same way ..read more

Hello all, We accidentally spilled paint on the our hardwood floor!!! We spent hours cleaning and thought we did a decent job. Unfortunately when the floor dried white markings appeared on the floor. I’m not sure if this is paint or we have scrubbed the stain off it? Is there a way to repair this floor? I want to avoid sanding the entire floor and re-staining if I can. Any help would be really appreciated ..read more

How thick should plywood be for hardwood flooring?

In the process of removing the 1/2" particle board and carpet in a loft so hardwood flooring can be installed (I'm not installing the hardwood, I'm having a professional do it. I'm just removing the particle board and doing the grunt work.) There's a 1.5" tongue and groove cedar subfloor that runs perpendicular over the joists/beams, and this subfloor is also the exposed ceiling for the bedroom and kitchen that are underneath the loft. Just for my own curiosity and education, what thickness... Read more ..read more

Howdy guys just a DIYer here. Redid my flooring with thicker stuff and now the gap, which was already pretty big to begin with, is even more substantial. Any ideas for a decent way to do this? I was thinking something like a transition strip with one of those angled pieces and maybe something underneath to make a sort of ramp. Ideas ..read more
