    Hello all, Been a long time since I visited DIYc. I hope everyone is well and safe. After a lot of thought, I finally decided to redo the flooring in my 2 storey home. The bedrooms on the second floor has parquet flooring, 2 bedroom has fairly new parquet floor (I am assuming based on the...

    Hi, My kitchen has a new wall oven in place of the old one. When we installed the original one it came with some molding which we glued on around the outside giving it a covered look. 15 years later the oven broke and the molding, some kind of laminate or vinyl that came with our cabinets from...

    I've replaced the laminate flooring in my house, and now notice that some threshold locations between laminate and tile flooring seems to be wrong. I uploaded images A, B, and C. It looks like I'll have to cut back some tile and replace some laminate planks with longer sections. I will also...

    So we had some water damage in our kitchen, not enough to render the laminate waste but looks like enough that the pieces of the floor no longer stay together (see pictures). It's only two sections of flooring where this is happening. I did buy some extra flooring in the event we sell the place...

    We moved into the house about 3 years ago which had Bruce oak flooring incorrectly installed without quarter round trim or stair nosing. Floor is uneven in many spots and will slide around. It also scratches so easily, from light things falling from the fridge to our dog's nails, so we're ready...

    Looking for some suggestions for how to go about updating our kitchen. Our house is about 100 years old, and the kitchen still has the original horsehair plaster. The previous owners re-did the kitchen about 25-30 years ago and glued large sheets of laminate from the counters to the cabinets...

    I'm hearing different thoughts on my basement flooring for underlayment. First of all, my concrete is in great shape with no visible mostiure issues. My laminate, which is approved for below-grade does not have a pad underneath. The salesperson suggested I use both a poly vapor barrier +...

    So... I have a 1960's ranch in Florida that had a planter in the floor... Long story short...planter was removed and pergo flooring needs to be replaced. This is an old pergo floor that has been glued together and is extremely difficult to get apart. I cut out portions of the floor with a...

    I've pulled out the last remaining carpet in my home and am going to install laminate. The room has concrete slab (in my basement) and is unheated. It is damp (has no history of flooding), but moisture is something I'm concerned about. I've just had a friend recommend I put down a vapour...

    Hello, I'm in the process of purchasing a mountain cabin where the average low temperature for 6 months out of the year is below 40 degrees fahrenheit. The average high temperature during those same months is ~20 degrees higher during the afternoon. Given there is occasional snow and lots of...

    I've read that you can put tile over laminate if you sand it with a 60 grit sand paper to rough the surface up. I'm putting 4x4 bright snow white tiles on the counter top (mainly to match a pre-existing white tiled wall). So, I've sanded the counter-top with my orbital sander, but I'm not so...

    Hey, I would like to install some laminate tongue and groove flooring on the wall as a kitchen backsplash. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with such a project. Nail and PL the panels on drywall, or just PL adhesive will do the trick? Thanks
  16. Painting
    Hi, It's my first proper painting job and I'd appreciate some advice. I've been doing some reading and watched a few videos online, but specific suggestions would be great. I want to paint two wooden pieces of furniture. One is a very small hanging display (not sure how to describe it, see the...

    We put laminate flooring down. In the kitchen and hall, there are step downs into another room. The subfloor is too thick to use the stair nosing that coordinates with the laminate floor. See below: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lcesari/12303296343/ When we removed the old floor, there was a...

    I pulled up an old carpet that had been peed on many times by a cat from a daylight basement with a concrete subfloor. So far I have neutralized the odor with a commercial grade enzyme cleaner and sealed the concrete. The smell seems to be completely gone :yes: Now, onto the new flooring. I...
