Sleeping beauty much happier with new SECOND floor!!

Okay, so I spend a little cash and bought this flooring called Flexitech, nice stuff. One does not even have to glue this down. If there are seams, you use double sided tape, no problems.
Again, stay away from self stick vinyl tiles. This stuff is junk!!! I am planning on writing a letter to the company to vent my disgust. Of course they will come back with the , " I didn't follow the manufacturers directions" line but that's okay, they will hear it from me!
I am still waiting to hear back from my a/c guy. If this unit works, I would have saved about $800, so hopefully no problems. These picks show the new flooring which is halway done and some of the new vents I installed. The middle opening is where the a/c unit will sit. Spent a while bracing!!
Enjoy the picks!

It sure looks nice. Here's hoping it fares better than your last floor.

I like the flooring. Can you tell us where you purchased it and the "model" of it?

Purchased this at a small flooring store in Oklahoma city. It's called flexitech and comes in different mm thickness. It bends , does not crack or chip. very durable stuff. little pricey the thicker you go. as far as the "model", its a log cabin "plank" pattern, dont have the # handy.
Hope this helped.
another suggestion, purchase in one full sheet if possible, this cuts down on seams. i have one seam and used double sided tape after double cutting. no seam visible. wish i would have gone this route to begin with. live and learn.
