1.50 How do you remove laminate flooring that was put down and glued to the floor?

Q. I have this horrible laminate flooring in my house but it's hard to take off the sub-floor because the laminate is glued to the floor. I have been taking it out with a screw driver and hammer and it kinda damages the sub-floor. Is there a way to take out the laminate with little damage to the sub-floor?

A. That is a very tedious job. You will be sitting there forever with a pry bar though. You can also buy a floor scraper for about $20 at any hardware store. Generally found in the flooring dept. Take my experience though, all depending on what you re-cover with (ie. tile, carpet, etc) if you are going with tile, you need to have a glue free surface. Plywood is inexpensive and easier to remove that your laminate, Not to mention the time and aggravation you will save.

1.20 What flooring company made laminate flooring in Slovakia?

Q. I have a decent amount of click together laminate flooring that states it was "Made in Slovakia" on the back. The rest of the information on each plank reads D-9279 281005 305-SK 12:33. I still need a good amount however and I am looking foir more. Can anyone tell me who made this flooring and how old it may be? Thanks!

A. To thinks that you can actually get an idea to where it's made from in any of the info in the box or call the company. But what I know is that laminate flooring is a cool type of flooring especially if you lead a home a traffic day.

1.20 Company that sells flooring that I can install myself for under a $1 a square foot and has a nice design?

Q. Please include company name with phone number if possible and id really appreciate it if you can tell me the type of flooring or a picture of it.

A. Try this link http://decoration.com/p/interior-decorating/flooring/ good luck!

1.20 How can I make wood flooring with different colors and gains look the same?

Q. I am looking for a cheap flooring job in a room in my house, and it has to be wooden floors. I am friends with a guy that is a flooring contractor and he gets to keep all extra pieces that do not fit in the house. So he has all of the flooring that I need, they all fit each other, but not all of them have the same texture/gain and color. Is there any way to get them all to be the same? I was thinking that I would be able to sand them down and maybe stain them, but I'm not too sure.

A. Probably not. All woods accept stains differently. The only way to have uniformity with differing species and grains is paint.

1.20 What kind of flooring would you lay in a bottom level of a tri-level house?

Q. I live in a tri-level home. The upstairs has hardwood floors in all but the bathroom and it has ceramic tile. The main floor will soon be remodeled so its not an issue at this point. The bottom level has a bathroom, pantry and bedroom. We have gutted the bathroom and are trying to decide what type of floor to put down. Its a concrete floor as of now. What kind of floor would be best and should i do the ENTIRE lower level the same flooring? Im thinking resale value.

A. Any moisture at all in that lower level, I d do that whole area in ceramic..And if the house is a few years old, and you have no vapor barriers , again I d do ceramic. Using area rugs as needed. Any moisture issues at all or no vapor barrier I wouldn t do any carpet or vinyl since it can ruin carpet and the hydro static pressure can blow off any vinyl glued down. If this level comes off a garage again I d do ceramic.. If you have a vapor barrier and have no moisture troubles a glue direct engineered hard wood looks great and ceramic in the bath unless its a 1/2 bath then you can let it flow right in there but thats your choice. Any other flooring questions you can e mail me thru my avatar GL

1.20 What materials do I need to install Laminate flooring?

Q. I'm planning on purchasing and installing laminate flooring myself in my girls room. But I'm unsure as to what materials I will need to install the flooring. Other than the flooring itself, what materials will I need to purchase to install a laminate flooring over a concrete foundation on the first floor. Is it fairly easy, or would paying someone to do it be a much better choice? Hint: I'm trying to keep the budget for the flooring to $200 for a 160 sq. ft. room. Thanks!

A. PLus the under layment, which you ll need 2 100 s/f rolls you should get the installation kit , About 20$ This comes with a tapping block spacers and a pull bar. You also need basic power tools such as chop saw and a table saw. Everything can be done on the table saw , its just easier to have a chop saw. A skil saw and or a jig saw can also be used. You ll need a hand saw to under cut the trim and of course a hammer.And a basic utility knife for cutting the under layment. If your half way handy you can do this yourself. It isn t hard. Saving 300$ (+-) in the process. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar . I ve attended several installation seminars as well as installed a few 100,000 s/f. GL

1.20 Bamboo Flooring! How good is it? Anyone installed this type of floor more than 2 years ago and happy ?

Q. I live in Sydney, northern suburbs. I'm trying to find the optimum solution for a bedroom floor to replace the sick carpets with an alternative healthy floor. My ideal is bright sand color flooring. Timber seems not that tough as bamboo, but bamboo products are imported from China and the quality may not be as good. If anyone has a bamboo floor for a few years now, I'd like to hear from you, and if you are happy with the quality, please let me know where to buy it from.

A. Well we haven't had it for two years, but we have had it for a couple of months. we have the dark maroon color and it shows dust and cleaning streaks retty badly so i have to clean it every other day to. i wish i would have went with the lighter color now like you are talking about. as for scratches, since ours is so dark, the deep ones do show but i go over them with a matching stain. i have never noticed lighter scratches. but since you are talking about getting the lighter colored flooring, the scratches wouldn't show up very easily. we were very happy with the quality. it wasn't like hardwood flooring where you have to inspect each piece before you put it down, each one that came out of the box was in perfect condition. and the brand we bought was nice and thick.

1.20 What kind of flooring do I need that can be cleaned easily when an invalid has an accident?

Q. I have an invalid living in my house. He sometimes cannot control his bowels and makes a mess in the floor. I currently have carpet over hardwood floor. I need the carpet to be taken out and want to find some sort of flooring that can be mopped with Clorox or Lysol in water to destroy odor. I would like to avoid any type of flooring that would have to be glued to the hardwood. It appears that all vinyl flooring has to glued down. Does anyone have any idea what I can put over the hardwood that will stand up to some serious cleaning?

A. Try laminate flooring, it is easy to install by locking the pieces together like a puzzle and it floats(needs no glue). It also cleans like a dream, we just got it and love it. You can get the kind that looks like wood or tile. We have the ceramic tile type and it really looks like tile. GL!
