We are getting ready to install Lifeproof LVP and would love if you would help us with a blueprint. We have a few questions.
1. I’ve uploaded a floor plan, do you need measurements or will this work?
2. Our laundry room has already been done (had a flood and contractor installed) so we need to know if it’s best to use a transition or to try to remove the boards in the doorway and start from there. (See photo).
3. What is the best way to handle the stairs? We are using cap a tread and there is a significant difference in the height of the product compared to the LVP. Plus, I’m assuming we should run the floors the same direction as the laundry room which means the top step will but up against the “short end” of the LVP. Do we just use a reducer transition?
Thanks for taking the time to review our project. Here are the answers to your questions.
1. Yes, we are excluding the areas with the diagonal lines. I crossed out the raised platform in our closet because it’s actually the headroom for our stairs. I have attached a photo. We won’t be replacing the flooring in the bathrooms.
2. I think we will go with your suggestion of putting a t-mold at the threshold of the laundry room.
3. I watched your video on the stair nose, and I get what we should be doing there. Thanks.
4. It’s weird, the box says the planks are 8.66 in x 47.64 in but I measured and I’m coming up with 7 3/16 in x 47.5 in. I did attach a photo of the whole plank and a close up of the end.
Thanks so much Joe! We are starting our project this weekend so we’ll let you know how it goes and if we have any questions. I figured out the mystery of our floor and I’m so embarrassed. I grabbed that piece out of an open box and it turns out it wasn’t the floor we are using but a sample that was put in there by mistake! The planks are as you described and the size listed on the box. I’m glad you addressed the stair nose again as we had to special order that part and won’t get it in time for the start of our project. I’m glad we don’t have to wait to start the floor.
