    Hi Joe… Hope you are doing well this week. My wife and I have enjoyed your YouTube videos and they gave us the confidence to attempt this ourselves.

    To that end I have prepared 3 documents on Google Docs that I intended to download and attach here. Unfortunately, I didn’t get too far because with all the pics, they got too big to do that. However, Google allowed me to just publicly publish those docs in a webpage format. Hopefully they will come through. You may have to cut and paste them into a new browser window. So here are the links for your review:

    Thanks Joe!

    We appreciate you, may God grant you a blessed weekend!

      Thanks Joe! A lot of great info. I will further digest, review with my wife, and complete my homework assignment then return with answers for you to complete the blueprints.

      Thanks again and God Bless.

      Hi Joe… We are zeroing in on Mannington ADURA Apex or ADURA Max or ADURA Rigid. What are your thoughts on those 3 with respect to my layouts? The Apex and Max look to be the thicker (8mm) WPC and the Rigid looks thinner (5.5mm) SPC. Are any of these the drop and lock systems you said you are not a fan of? My wife is liking the Painted Bevel Edge Vs the Microbevel edge. Any thoughts on either?

      Thanks Joe!

      One more thing: There is one Apex color we like and the plank size is 8″ wide by 6 feet long. (Bigger than the 5″ x 4 feet planks we’ve been seeing) With that larger size? Any concern with our layouts? Will the thicker 8″ width actually help us in some areas? Or could I have very difficult issues around doorways?

      Thanks Joe! You are giving me much confidence with this project. Here are some additional pics you requested. It looks like the vinyl is right on the subfloor and it peels up real easy without much if any glue scraping. On the upstairs reducer transition to the bathroom it looks like I have a 1/4″ gap from the bottom of that metal piece to the top of the LVP if we slide it under. (I’m comfortable grinding away some of that metal piece if beneficial.) But I will go with what you feel makes the best sense.

      Thanks sooo much for your time on all this Joe! This is all great info!

      I found out that my Mannington order is not due to ship until the end of August. Not a big deal for me though as I just turned 60 and not as nimble and fast moving as I use to be. So I will have the perfect amount of that time for floor prep on the second floor, adding plywood to the master bed and laundry, leveling everything, and putting the stairs in. Might even have all the shoe molding rough cut and painted too. Having all that done ahead of time for when the planks show up… a blessing my friend!

      Just to tie up a couple loose ends… Top stair nose… I will add that to my Mannington order. For the transition to the bathroom on the first floor we will be virtually level with the tile so I’ll order a Mannington ‘T’ transition there. Not sure yet what to do with the second floor bathroom. (See my added picture above.) I want to order those parts tomorrow just to make sure I can reserve stock and get them shipped at the same time as the planks. Here is the link at Mannington:

      Final thoughts and recommendations on those?

    I would order the t molding and the reducer. It looks like mannington has changed their transitions. They were solid wood and now it appears they are not…. i must still be getting what is left in stock.
