Busy weekend this weekend

Published:

Going to install 300 square feet of free floating interlocking flooring.

Will be doing the kitchen, dining room and the hallway to the bedroom doors.

I only work 1/2 day fridays so I started on it this afternnon.

Houses in this area are constructed on concrete slabs. The area mentioned has vinyl flooring on it. The instructions say to remove the shoe moulding and to undercut the door jambs and trim.

I removed the shoe mould as well as the baseboard and the door casing. I also removed one jamb set as it did not have a door in it. I then undercut the rest of the jambs into the door jamb about 1". Trying to interlock the flooring is difficult when trying to slide it under the door trim and jamb. Should be able to manage sliding the flooring into the undercut jambs as those jambs are where I butt the end of the flooring into. Just lock it together and push it under the jamb. Going to put a threshold in each opening where it goes to the carpet. Need to overlap the threshold onto the interlocking flooring about 1/2". This will give a finshed appearance from flooring to carpet.

It is not recommended to put this flooring over humps in the floor or try to bridge low spots otherwise it will move up and down when walking on it. I have a couple high spots to take out to get rid of the low spots on each side of the hump. Took out one spot this afternoon.

Will work on it again tomorrow.
