    floor insulation

    The wrong terminology just makes it a lot more fun. 😄 This is a new one. If I'm reading this right my math says you can go up as much as 2 and 3/4 in. (7cm) That would mean the entire house otherwise you'd have a huge height transition in places. The front door and threshold would have to be...

    floor insulation

    I'm having a hard time understanding this entire buildup. I'm thinking the original floors in a Victorian house would be oak or fir. You said the original floating floor. 🤔 Is is there any way you can draw up a side view of the layers of flooring and heating system etc. I think I'm kind of...

    Water damage?

    If you have any planks left over you could take a razor blade or a sharp chisel to see how easily the product's finish will delaminate or come loose on the edges. If the finish wasn't applied very well, water damage or urine would more easily allow it to separate or flake like that around the...

    not slippery for pets

    If the product has a Sheen or a shine to it it's probably going to be too slippery. Coretec or Provenza brand flooring has a lower gloss level and might be something that works for you. They are on the cheap end of vinyl planks but they're pretty durable products.

    undulating floor question

    The flatness specs for most locking type planks are a big deal. Typically the maximum difference allowed in 10 ft is 3/16 of an inch. If you laid an 8 or 10 ft straight edge on the floor, at no point should you be able to slide a Ritz cracker underneath the straight edge. How's that for a...

    floor insulation

    I'm no insulation expert, but I would insulate the underside of the house between the joists. I was going to do work for someone that had an older double wide mobile home. The mobile home has skirting all the way around it but had very tiny vents and not very many of them. Moisture was...

    All natural seaming tape/method

    Then again they could make the whole house natural with no chemicals. The comments below this video are interesting. I watched the TV one time where the floor in a structure was made using virtually the same mixture. They trialed it to a smooth finish and after it dried polished it with...

    All natural seaming tape/method

    They still make needles and thread just for that purpose. Wool is a natural product, but synthetic fibers are made from coal and oil. 😱

    Help. Bona finish issue.

    I think the room just needs some furniture. 😁 I'm sorry that probably didn't help much. But seriously, everything looks worse the room without furniture.

    Help. Bona finish issue.

    Do you have any way to post a couple of photos? What was your finishing procedure and how many coats.? I'm not going to be able to help you with an answer but a little more information might help someone that does... I think someone's name is Dan. 😁

    discontinued sheet vinyl (congoleum, i think in this case)

    I've seen very little vinyl installed in the last few years. Our local carpet one doesn't even have a vinyl rack up. I'm guessing that's not going to be an easy one to find.

    How to make my laminate floor matt again?

    Looks to me like mopping, sweeping and walking on it seem to polish the surface. I don't know if there's anything you can do about it. If the floor is holding up okay and there's no problem with the joints, I'm guessing you're just going to have to live with it.

    Question about scratches on flooring

    Do you have a scrap left over from the original installatiion? How thick is the top layer? I've seen some that have an extremely thin top surface and barely a 16th of an inch.

    Question about scratches on flooring

    I don't do wood flooring for refinishing but I agree with Dan. It looks to be a lock together floor. If it is a lock together floor that's floating and not glued down, there may be specific recommendations for recoating these types of floors. I'm not sure what product Dan means by screening the...

    That's pretty wild to watch. I hope it was a demo I can't imagine anybody wanted that in the house.

    Urgently need 80 to 100 sq feet of discontinued Armstrong Rustics Premium Reclaimed American Chestnut Aged Chestnut L6604

    You would want to check the thickness of the new vinyl product compared to the one you have. It might be a bit thinner. If you have that same product in a bedroom it might be possible to disassemble the bedroom and make that into the hallway, then do the bedroom in the newer plank. Yes I know...

    Oh those were cut down rolls.... That's fine if you're not doing seams but otherwise it's a job for Jon not Randy. 😁

    Urgently need 80 to 100 sq feet of discontinued Armstrong Rustics Premium Reclaimed American Chestnut Aged Chestnut L6604

    Wish I could help, but the solid vinyl planking has kind of taken over the market for the last few years. I don't doubt that there's some, somewhere. I know that doesn't help at all. How old is your material?
