Toilet installed over laminate floor

Completed installing toilet over laminate floor. Attached new underlayment pad, eased flooring under floor flange, sealed all edges with caulking (silicone for once) and added back moulding to prevent water from going out behind toilet. The screws to attach flange to floor were #6 x 3/4" and I used #6 x 1 1/4" stainless. One of the original screws was not even attached to the floor. All six screws went in with little effort once I found the holes with an icepick. Fun part was putting nut on bolt at the back of the toilet. Thank you duct tape inventer. Could not have done it wthout all the help here. I am real happy with the outcome. Time will tell if this works. Thanks. Jack

Jack, I see your photo up in post #15 of the flooring. I'm surprised you didn't need to make a cutout for the toilet valve pedals. My flooring prevented the pedals from moving all the way down.

That was the reason I wanted to place flooring completely under the toilet so I would not have to cut out for flush pedal. It works great! Pedals go all the way down with room to spare from laminate. Previous pics show where I had done a cut-out for the pedal. All I could think was that there would be a place "stuff" would collect I could not clean. Although I have not "used" toilet, trust me it is getting flushed and checked very often. Thanks for all your advice. Jack

I'm going through the same problem with new cork flooring.Anybody know if this flange will allow me to install the toilet like normal on top of the flooring.The threaded part of mine is about an 1" to 1 1/4" and if this one listed hear measure's the 1 3/4" I'm thinking the description specifies.

Looks like I'm going to install the original closet flange on top of the new cork flooring and cross my fingers it works.Looks like I have some flex in the black tank and the 1/2" extra depth of the new floor should be ok.I'll post pictures soon.
