Any fan of HGTV will know what demolition is and what it consists of. Watching it on TV is fun. There’s nothing like watching someone else do a ton of labor. Doing it yourself, though, is a different story.
I know what you are thinking. An underlayment? The vinyl flooring needed a firm base. After doing some research online and speaking to a floor pro at Lowe’s, the husband bought the plywood sheets that would work as underlayment.
Here’s another term you might not be familiar with: nailing schedule.
A nailing schedule is the distance where you must drive nails – or screws, or staples – into a piece of wood. Three inches and six inches is what the hubs came up with.
Gluing a floor down is not easily done. You have to buy the right underlayment, the right glue, and the right notched trowel (a v-shaped trowel or a square shaped trowel – it really gets that specific).
At this point, we were beside ourselves in excitement to see actual vinyl tile laid out on the floor. I hope that you are, too!!! Stay tuned for the next blog post, where I will cover just that.
