Completed Flooring Project

I finished putting in new floors. Used Shaw vinyl plank flooring. This is the gunstock color. Easy to put in, just cut with a box cutter or blade and the pieces just snap right off. Lowe's also has this in stock, so any unused boxes are being returned for a refund. Yay!

Looks great. You had a lot of intricate cuts!

You satisfied with all the edges? Some folks end up using quarter-round moulding around all the edges, but I don't care for that look.

Some were better than others. I used a Dremel with a plastic cutting disk for the tougher corners. You just have to be patient. Smaller gaps I might fill with similar colored wood putty.

A bead of colored caulk might make a nice edge treatment.

I have yet to decide whether or not to use molding. I might wait until after I put furniture back in to see how it looks.

I just checked that out at Lowe's. Looks like the stuff to use! There's no glue to melt in the Arizona heat, plus it's waterproof. Lowe's has some "Blue Hawk 4 in 1 Underlayment" that the salesman was pimping pretty hard.

Has anyone ever used it, or should I start a separate thread?

I did not want to use underlayment because I wanted the floor to be able to breath just in case water got below the subfloor.

Nice job- you talked us into using that product. We took samples from HD and I think we'll go with the bamboo or cork. Do you have an idea of how much it took to cover your floor?

I ended up using about 8 boxes. I purchased 12 kept 1 extra and returned 3. Remember I used the Shaw vinyl plank click together from Lowe's. The home depot stuff glues the seams together. There is another thread that talks about the issues that arose using the HD stuff.

This may be a dumb question so please excuse my ignorance . Did you put any underlayment down first? Or just put it down on top of what was under the old carpet? (Is that the subfloor? Or is it further down?)

Not a dumb question, though perhaps a tad lazy.
The OP explains his underlayment decision in post #10.

Carry on
