OK, here goes. I bought this investment property and I'm fixing it up. I'm
to the point of installing some sort of flooring material in the laundry
room/rear entry. Right now the floor is 3/4" plywood. When the previous
owners installed this floor they made it 3/4" taller than the large closet
in the room which houses the furnace and hot water heater. The problem is
the furnace is an updraft model which has the filter laying flush with the
floor. The first thing I did was cut a piece of the floor out so I could
slide out and replace the filter and then I replaced the flooring. (btw-the
filter looked to be 10 years old and was almost sucked up into the squirrel
cage). Having the ability to remove this piece of flooring seems to be the
easiest way to access the filter. Now comes the hard part. I need to
install some sort of finished floor material to the 3/4" plywood that can
withstand the rigors of this setup. My first choice would be vinyl sheet
goods, but I'm worried it will eventually peel and curl. The area of this
trap/access door will see a fair amount of traffic because it will be in
front a doorway going into the kitchen from the laundry room. Any ideas?
Yes, I realize I could raise the furnace, but I was kinda thinking about
getting away easy on this project.
