I was wondering what I should use for a straight edge to check for low an high spots. I currently thinking of renting a 8-10′ screed from a local hardware store to use. What would you recommend to use and what length?
<div>Attached is the requested drawing. I will be installing luxury vinyl plank through out the entire house. The product is Dahlonega Peak Luxury Vinyl Plank – Foam Back by DuraLux. If possible, I will be removing the existing carpet and tile as needed. If it is recommended, I can plan on removing that all before starting to lay the plank. I will need to at least keep one bathroom in working order during this project.</div><div>
I already have 70 boxes of the plank waiting to be installed. I still have yet to get any additional tools or materials for the install. I do not have a jigsaw nor circular currently to cut the plank. The only tool currently at my disposal for such a task is a utility knife. This project would make a good excuse to get something to make things easier to cut the plank.
As for the underlayment, I am currently planning on picking up the most basic plastic type. This is a single story home with a concrete slab in Phoenix, AZ.
At this time, I cannot think of any other questions. I’m looking forward to your advice on this project as well as any recommended tools. I know of a few tools that I plan on getting based on a couple of your videos I’ve watched so far.
Thank you for your time,
