Floating Vinyl

14 posts in this topic

Hey All,

Just wanted to drop a line to see what you all think.

I seen there is this new vinyl out there that you put down over the top of the old vinyl. you pull your baseboard off, lay it down, without sticking anything on it, and then place your baseboard back on. Then when you walk on it, the new vinyl is to hold down the they exsiting floor.

Any thougths.

I have installed a couple jobs of it and seems to be working out fine.

but it seems like you would have alot of waste buying the huge one sheet.

You have to get it in one sheet correct, otherwise it will look horrible.

I've installed a lot of vinyl floors and will say. Regardless of what type vinyl you use, if your going to have seams its not a DYI project. You will not be proud of your first seam, or second, third, and ....

You would be better of getting peel and stick 1' squares.

With this vinyl you get a tube of glue, line the vinyl pattern apply glue to the joining edges,lay em lay flat on the floor push em together and walk away,let glue set and walla a real good looking seam.The problem is you get the ammount of glue for the seam not much extra! If ya can ask for extra glue and do a practice seam it will help! Its easy nice looking seam(if ya take your time).

Floating vinyl uses tape on the seam(one seam only). Which is probably the most forgiving or should I say, you can make a mistake and do it over.

What is the size and shape is the room? If you have an L then no matter what you'll have waste because you'll need that to match the pattern.

A Neighbor did his last year,the edge glue was basically the same as PVC glue,It fused the two edges together,a bit of working time maybe 5 min. but on the 12 ft seam it ate up 1/2 that time applying the glue and not being sloppy.Never know it was seamed unless you were looking in the right spot and closely!Course if you did it you would pick it out knowing it was there.

i just dont think i wanta do this.

I was thinking of doing the Snap in Looking Stuff, kinda like the hardwood flooring, but looks like Title with Grout.

What you all think of that?

I have some of that lock stuff that looks like tile. It is okay. It ios wider than the hardwood panels, so it snaps together a bit tougher, not as pliable. But works. My bro in law did his bathroom in it at cabin, looks nice.

But we just had vinyl done (by pro) and it is the tile look. Holy cow, it just looks great, way better than our snap and lock stuff we have. Easier to care foor. Ours was just small piece in new construction, but I really like it.

You might be surprised at the price.

Get a bid. If you remove the base and undercut the door jambs then clean the floor you've taken care of all the prep.

With the slump in the housing market, your little job will look more appealing. If your flexible on the date, all the better.

    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54" in the order of the pictures. Have a look!
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.
