Ernie, could you clear up some things for me?

Quote:
Your coach has OSB- oriented strand board. When you remove the tile and whatever material they adhered it with, there will be some of the OSB that comes up. You can remedy that with some Durhams Rock hard water putty,
Ernie, are you saying that you use the putty to fill in any holes after the old flooring is taken up? I assume you sand it smooth after application.

Quote:
The OSB in coaches can be up to 30 feet in length with no seams. All coaches I have done I go over that osb with new peoduct.
I don't understand exactly what you are saying here? The installer told me that he would not glue the tile directly to the OSB ?? I'm not sure what you are saying here??

Quote:
As for installing underlayment, if you go this route you will have many seams as it is impossible to get that in without cutting it into pieces. It must be screwed and glued as you don't want to have that material bow up, like what happened in a prior post
The installer mentioned that he would have to fill the cracks where the pieces joined and sand them. Is this OK? What kind of glue would I use to glue the plywood to the OSB?


I really appreciate your input!

Our installer coated the OSB with rock hard water putty, then sanded it smooth. He glued our vinyl flooring onto that. That was three or four years ago, and it still looks absolutely beautiful!
Jim, are you saying the he coated the ENTIRE floor with the putty? That sounds like a lot of work!

Make sure that the screws or nails are covered with a good putty and glue, you don't want anything to telegraph thru the vinyl.

good luck, Dave

Dave, what are "ring nails" ?

I didn't see a need for plywood etc.

What kind of sealer did you use?

It took him a couple of hours to spread the stuff. He sanded it the next day. Took another couple of hours. He laid the floor the next day after that.

Fear not, oh lonesome one. We are here to help (well when the boss isn't looking anyway).

First, Ring Nails, actually ring shank nails. Normal nails have smooth side to their shanks (the long part with the point on one end and the flat top on the )that offer some resistance to being pulled out. Ring shank mails have rings cut into the shanks. These rings tend to grab the wood and resist pulling out a lot more than smooth shank nails. Another variation is the spiral shank nails.

Rock Hard Water Putty. A quick search on Google (wonderful tool that Google) reveals that a company named Durhams produces a power that you mix with water to make the putty and then you spread it over the surface and sand smooth when dry. Itís sold in Lowes, HD, Walmart, etc.

BTW, no harm or insults implied, just having some fun.

Thanks for the info! Good to know that I didn't run everybody off with my questions!

One more question about the putty. Do you apply it with a trowel?

I use a 12 inch broad knife that sheetrock installers use. Mix up the Durhams like pancake batter. I'm here- just started on an Adventurer.

Ernie. Are you saying osb, then water putty? Or are you recommending osb, then 1/4 inch plywood, then the putty?

Thanks

I haven't found a floor, yet that I have to add underlayment to.
I do, however, have to add plywood to a slide to accommodate the stairnose trim.
