For you guys that have already put down new flooring that looks great, how about a few great pics to go with the words? I know I would like to see some.

This pic doesn't show much of the floor as it is taken in the hallway. I can take more later.

Boss, Is it the same if you build on top of cork flooring? Should the new cabinets and such be attached to the subfloor and then lay the floor? Thanks

Hardwoods in 63 Trade Wind

3/8 inch Teak. I can email you a pick or two if you like. I am very happy with the look and how they are holding up. Glued and nailed.

If you want to go with a real retro look Marmoleum is an option. It is a true linoleum available in tiles or sheet. But, it is more expensive than vinyl and installation calls for using a specialized adhesive..

Yes.. Please send any additional pics that you can. Also, it sounds like I could build onto this flooring, meaning that my first step towards rebuilding a gutted trailer is putting the new floor down, and moving forward with the rest. Thanks!

Who has had problems with changes in weather temps and flexing? Every type of flooring I've looked at, there has been a negative to it either shrinking or peeling up due to extreme cold/heat or just general flexing of the trailer. I am doing a full renovation and would like to lay the floor down before I put in cabinets, sofa, bed, etc.

Floating floor

We,ll be at this point in a few days and have decided to go with some tiles that Home Depot carrys. (Lowes does not have them) They stick to themselves at the edges but not to the floor. This would allow for some flexibility. They are recommended for use in bathrooms and kitchens Sorry I can,t for the life of me remember the name. We found them online at HD. Susan.

Was it called Allure? If so, I was looking at this too. But there have been a few folks on here that have said it come detached and curls up in the heat.
