New Flooring Completed!

Thanks to the guidance and photos from members of this great forum, my weekend project is done! Started Friday after work removing the old carpet and vinyl, finished the new Allure floor late Friday evening.

Beautiful job!!! See how easy it was. You will love it even more the first time you sweep it out.

I'll second that great job seems to open up your floor plan. I found when we had this type floor on other MH it was necessary to sweep floor before moving in slide so small stones didn't become embedded in wood floor or on rollers.

Great work! Was that whole coach, or just living room? Mine took a lot longer than a weekend, but I did the whole coach and I didn't have any help. We love our Allure flooring we have used our coach heavily this summer, and it is doing great!

I'm finishing up an installation of one of those power dust pans and a dedicated shop vac. Kind of a poor man's central vac if you will.

It was living room, kitchen, and hallway. I left the BR carpeted and DW wanted to leave the existing vinyl in the bath.

One thing about doing flooring is a 4 letter word- time. You cannot rush these kind of jobs. There are so many cuts and curves and different variations in elevations- slides, no slides, water and electric runs, etc that the job can get overwhelming at times. Ernie- knowing about these things

In our coach, the most difficult part of the job was removing the bizzzzzilon staples that held down the carpet and vinyl! Installation on the new flooring was a piece of cake compared to the demo.

Thumbs up New Floor!

Jim28730.

Good looking floor, nice bright color.

What did you put underneath it? Is the floor glued down? How is the chair secured during travel?

Thanks,

Henry.

The Allure is a "floating" floor, doesn't require nails or glue. Allure is very forgiving and goes directly down on the OSB that was under the carpet. You just want to be sure to pull out all of the old staples before putting the flooring down.

Since it is much thicker that traditional "peel-n-stick" flooring, you should not notice minor imperfections in the existing sub-floor.

I never have had my euro-chair bolted down. I suppose it could become a missle if I were to rollover the coach, but if that happens, a flying chair will be the least of my worries! Seriously, I have never had a problem with it moving during normal travel. The chair is much heavier than it looks.

Jim
