Are you ready to be floor-ed?
Because I just tricked ya!
You thought you were getting the big reveal this time ’round but instead I have a surprise for ya. =)
Well, not really a surprise, but more of a “I forgot about this and was so proud of it that I just had to share it with you”.
While we were moving the washer back into its place the foot of the washer caught the bubble and tore a hole in the flooring. Unfortunately, I forgot to get a picture of the tear.
I went to Home Depot to price out some replacement flooring. I looked into replacing it with vinyl but decided against it when I found this resilient tile flooring by Allure. I liked all that it had to offer, which you can see in the photo below.
When I went to talk to someone about the flooring, to get a better understanding of it, I found out about Allure Ultrra Plank flooring. It basically has all the same factors except that it is in plank form and is waterproof. WATERPROOF!! That means if there happens to be some flooding there won’t be any bubbling!!
Paul removed the baseboards and I got started on the allure ultra resilient plank flooring. It’s a click and lock installation with no glue required. My kind of project. This is the size of one plank. As you can tell, it is not long enough to fit the full length of the wall.
I’m almost finished here. Cutting each piece was a bit harder than I imagined it would be. I didn’t realize how thick each plank was going to be. I had to make several slices in the plank, on both the top and bottom, and then kinda seasaw it until it “broke” apart.
After Paul put the baseboards back up I went to fill them with the DAP that I had from our faucet redo.
There is our new floor which
we I love!
Have you had to install flooring? How did you decide which type you wanted? Was it an “emergency” to get it done or did you take your time? Even though we didn’t have to get it done as quickly as we did, I’m glad that we did some research and ended up going with the water proof planks. =)
