I purchased the WPC Driftwood from you guys about 2 months ago and going to install it today. I thought I saw and installation manual but can't seem to find it. Would you have that?
We Ship Floors
great, thats good. Do you have transistion pieces available? I cant seem to find them
Yeah, are located at the bottom of the specific product page you are interested in.
Why do you recommend NOT installing cabinets on top of the floors?
Because the floor has to float - the weight of the cabinets will pin down the flooring and restrict movement that the floor needs to avoid buckling
like move? for expansion etc?
Yes, you click the planks together and "float" it
so, you could get seperation, ok
If part of your floor is secured down, you could have issues
The whole room moves as a unit.
What about heavy couches and furniture?
They are not an issue. Items that are actually bolted to the floor and walls is the issue.
They do not allow any movement at all.
right, ok, makes sense
We had an issue one time in a salon.
Turned out the chairs were lag bolted to the floor.
This caused the floor to come apart in areas.
yeah, its new construction, so I wanted to do all the floors and then install the cabinets in the kitchen. Its alot easier and way less cuts, plus it looks better
so i will have to rethink that
You can....just put luan were the cabinets are going
Yes...plywood that is the same thickness
So the cabinets set on that
so ranges, dishwashers? would they be a problem also?
You're going to have to use a piece of quarterround around the bottom.
They should not be an issue.
The bolted/screwed down stuff is the problem
forgive me for pressing this, but the cabinets just sit on legs and then are screwed into the wall.
lol, you must be shaking your head right now.
i hate quarter round!
I mean you can do it....just don't call us if it comes apart...lol
yeah, i hear ya
You would have to go around the edge of the cabinets and cut an expansion if it gives you a problem.
So its not like it cant be done....just know that going in
so is this all floating floors, right, not just wpc?
The underlayment acts as a ball bearing.....allows the floor to move around
ok cool - perfect, thanks for all your help!
