Matt H Blueprint request
Hi Joe, I registered last week for the plank bootcamp + support bundle after watching many of your videos. I’m excited for this process and appreciate your offering this service. We are close to deciding on our flooring. We’ve looked at many various LVP, laminate, and engineered wood products. The top contenders are Mohawk Ultra Wood and Rev Wood (mostly driven by color, grain, appearance). These both use an HDF core, but one has a real wood veneer and the other a photo laminate surface. The Ultra Wood is a 7 X 81 dimension and the Rev Wood is a 7.5 X 47 dimension. I’ve attached a floorplan and will also follow up with a link to a video walkthrough of the floors. I plan to do the entire first floor, the stairway, and the upstairs hallway. Some questions for you that would help with our material choice…
– What are your thoughts on installing directly over the tile with an HDF plank product? The existing tile is in good shape (not cracked or loose) and generally flat/level with thin grout lines. I would need to raise the subfloor height in the living room if I go this route and raise cabinet height (we are installing new cabinets) to match the new floor height in the kitchen if I go this route. The other option is to have the tile removed by a local company. That’s an added expense, but there would also be time/cost in raising the living room floor and cabinet height in the kitchen. I would appreciate your thoughts on going over the top of the tile vs. tile removal?
– We really want to avoid transitions… There are a number of doors on the first floor. Is this possible given my floorplan and product choice?
– Other thoughts you may have as we consider our flooring choice?
BTW – I consider myself to be an advanced level DIY’er. I’ve got a full array of tools and have done many projects including cabinet installation, baseboards, paint, plumbing, electrical, tile, etc. I’m meticulous and willing to take my time, go slow, and learn. Thanks so much. I will post a link to a video shortly.
