Is it any good? Waste of money? I cant find a lot of good reviews on
it, but my Menard's says they arent even going to carry glue-on vinyl
anymore because everyone ncluding contractors love the no glue.
Anyone have experience with either the sheet type or the tongue &
groove tile type? Which kind?
Totally no-glue, or the type where you put just a dab at the edges and
at doorways? I'd have trouble trusting totally no-glue, unless it was
super-thick and stiff. Does it have a tacky no-slip backing like
commercial carpet tiles or something? (I note that at work, they
sometimes have to cheat and add dabs of glue to those, where the keep
moving around, like in doorways and where people make sharp turns on them.)
But having said that- 60-70 years ago, when poor folk had painted wood
floors, linoleum 'area rugs' for kitchens were quite common. Even as a
kid in the 60s, I saw a lot of them demoted to garage floor duty when
the kitchen got redone.
I used 'Loose Lay' vinyl to cover my computer work station desk. If it's
made to walk and drag chairs around on, what can go wrong on a desk:
I also put it on my wet bar on the other side of the same room:
Then I used scraps for kitchen cabinet and drawer liners. Great stuff.
I'm shocked, just shocked. You only have nine monitors. How can
you possibly work with so few?
I don't understand why they make gourmet cat foods. I have
known many cats in my life and none of them were gourmets.
They were all gourmands!
What do you do if the room is too wide for a single-roll-width? Not
being snarky- a new kitchen floor is one of the things on the list for
this place, once more-urgent stuff gets done. I'm lousy at pattern
cutting, so I'll probably hire it out, just want to know what to expect.
Ask at HD about tape down sheet vinyl. I learned about it a couple of
years ago. They use a double-sided clear tape. The trick is the floor
prep and install, so you must have an installer that knows his
business. It was a nice install, at a condo belonging to a neighbor.
Someone that installs floor goods every day would be a good place to
I used a good brand from HD, I forgot the name but it looks like
stone, for 10 kitchens in 07, its been fine. Mine needed the floor
primed and you had to use the 100lb steel roller to break the seal and
activate the 2 part Epoxy. If you dont roll what I bought the warranty
is void. 2 part glue - epoxy that you break a seal seems to be the way
to go, the apts are abused with excess washing water and have held
