Greg Crum New Construction Blueprint
Thank you in advance for your help! I am finishing paint this week and hoping to start our TRASITIONLESS laminate installation very soon. Below are a few pertinent details and please let me know if you need any further information.
- This is new construction on a concrete slab.
- No trim, doors, cabinets, vanities or toilets are installed. I planned on doing the laminate first and setting everything on top of the laminate (unless you advise against it). I was going this route for easier installation, as well as flexibility down the road. The only items installed are the shower pans.
- Carpet will be installed after the laminate.
- Unless indicated otherwise on the room label, laminate will be installed in the respective room. The exception to this is the Mechanical room and the Porch. Those will remain concrete. My apologies for failing to label those!
- We purchased this laminate product. Let me know if you need other images beyond those provided via the link. Also, we are able to return this flooring so if you have concerns, please don’t hold back!
- The home will be connected to our garage/shop through the breezeway on the northwest corner. We will normally be entering the home through the breezeway but our guests will be entering through the double doors on the east.
My initial questions are what I’m certain you always address:
- Where should I start to minimize working backwards?
- Which direction will prevent transitions?
- What is the best transition product or method from laminate to carpet?
- Do you recommend the QuietWalk underlayment or should I simply install directly on concrete?
