1.20 Laying engineered wood flooring over vinyl flooring?

Q. Can engineered wood flooring be installed on vinyl flooring? I'm in the middle of home improvement project and have decided to lay some engineered wood flooring for my kitchen. The particular brand that I've bought requires glue-down installation. The problem is, there's vinyl flooring that's been laid with cutback and it's not going to come up without a significant amount of work and then re-preparation of the sub flooring. I've been to the local home improvement center several times and can't really get a straight answer as to if this is possible. I've searched the Internet and its about 50-50 yes and no. I'd really like anybody's input into my situation, as I am under a little bit of a time constraint to finish the project as this is my new house and I've got to move out of my old house in in a week. Thanks in advance to your answers!

A. If you are laying down Bruce or Armstrong flooring, they have instructions for laying over vinyl flooring. Basically you can't lay the flooring over more than 2 layers of vinyl. You want to make sure the flooring is stripped, not sanded, especially if there is a gloss on the floor. Don't sand if its a resilient floor, it may contain asbestos. Also they recommend specific adhesives that will bond with the floor.

1.20 Can laminate wood flooring in two adjoining rooms be mismatched?

Q. We are moving into our first home and we are replacing the carpet in the living room with laminate wood flooring. The floor in the dining room is already laminate wood and joins up with the living room floor. We are trying to pick out new floors and are wondering if we can get a different color wood floor for the living room or if we need to match it perfectly with the dining room. Would mismatching the wood look tacky?? Calling all interior designers! I need your help!

A. What you are asking is a question of personal taste. I (being a wood lover) think it's kinda cool to bounce to contrasting wood off one another, But thats just me.

1.20 What type of flooring would look best in a room with yellow walls?

Q. Im getting new flooring in my room and the walls are yellow. What color of carpet would look best in it or would hard wood flooring look best and if so what type? And its a small room if that has anything to do with it i was thinging of bamboo flooring, would that look good to if i picked that

A. Bamboo flooring is not only a beautiful choice, available in many stain colours (light to dark), IT is also an environmentally friendly and sustainable product. Great Choice. -stain colour : light

1.20 How long do you have to leave concrete floors to dry before laying hardwood flooring in a new house?

Q. We are considering laying hardwood flooring in the living/dining room of our new house. The floor is concrete and we have been told we need to wait for a period of time before laying wood flooring. The time period varies with who we ask, but we've been told anything from 3 months to 2 years! Does anyone have any direct experience of this? Is it a load of rubbish or is it genuine?

A. Would have thought that after a week or so when the concrete was set it would be ok to lay flooring. Maybe the flooring contractors are trying to put you off until they can fit in the job!!

1.20 Do you need a professional to install wood flooring?

Q. I am thinking about doing it myself but my sister ect say you have to hire someone.I am not sure i have to.

A. Most hardwood flooring goes for $3-4 per sqft. while installation will run you an additional $5 per sqft. Sit in on one of the Saturday seminars at Home Depot or grab a book on do it yourself flooring tips for around $10. It's not as hard as people make it out to be and with a little confidence in your own abilities you can save over 50% vs. professional installation.

Wood Flooring

 Flooring - Wood Flooring When it comes to choosing flooring materials for your >, Kansas area home, there is nothing to match the beauty of a fine wood floor. They enhance almost every kind of décor, and give room a warm and cozy feel that will only increase as the years go by. A hard wood floor is long lasting and with some TLC, your hard wood floor can last for years of beauty. There are also a variety of wood floor styles and types to choose from, giving you a number of options that fit within your budget.

 flooring company in Kansas City When it comes to choosing a hard wood floor for your >, Kansas area home, consider not just the décor in the rest of the room, but also the kind of use the room has, and your life style. Certain species are not advised for use in certain parts of the country. Your formal living room will be accented by a darker color of wood, while kitchens and family rooms need wood flooring that is of a lighter shade, and not a dark or bleached wood floor. The high traffic and risk of spills in these area call for a different style. Bathrooms on the other hand, do not work well with wood floors. Oak hard wood floors and cherry hard wood floors are still the wood species of choice for their long lasting style. Consider color variations in each piece of wood that is installed, because each piece could have been sourced from a different tree. Take in to consideration the thicknesses and widths of the boards or planks. All companies have their own color, sizes and styles, so make sure that your floor installer and you are on the same page on all the specifications. For instance, a natural oak wood floor is called by dozens of different names in the flooring industry.

Wood floorings are one of the more expensive choices in flooring materials. However, the quality of the wood determines the pricing itself. You can expect a cheap wood flooring to have more imperfections and more number of knots. A higher priced wood will offer fewer variations in color, although this is dependent on the species too. Expensive wood also gives you a wider width, and allows you to stain and finish your wood flooring to bring out a richer color. Installation costs also vary a lot, depending on the labor rates in your area, as well as the sub floor preparation. To ensure that your expensive new wood floor lasts long, keep water, dirt and sand away from your hard wood floor. Water discolors the wood, while dirt and sand cause scratching and dulling of the color. Use floor rugs outside the door, and just inside the hallway, and place area rugs at different points throughout the house to take some of the wear off the floor. Never use regular floor cleaners or soap solutions. Special neutral pH cleaners will keep your wood floors residue free. Insert felt strips or padding under the legs of your furniture to prevent scratching and lift the furniture off the floor when you have to move it. To protect areas near large windows from the damaging effects of the sun, use heavy curtains.
