    Some people have commented that they can hear the vapor barrier when they walk. Has that been your experience?

    Hi Mr Jones, thanks for your very informative videos.
    I just purchased about 500 sq ft of Nucore Cabinwood from Floor & Decor. I had them shipped to a tropical island to install in my home.
    I’m now seeing the fine print that it needs to be installed at temperatures below 80 degrees F. My daytime temperature is about 85. Does this mean that I should install it at night or does this mean that it the product will not work at all at my average temperature? It will not be getting any sunlight except for a small patch near a window if the curtains are are drawn and only in the morning.

    Thanks and would appreciate a quick response

    Just tried earlier to post a question but I’m not sure if it went through so I’m doing it again.
    I purchased 500 sq ft of Nucore Cabinwood from Floor & Decor and had it shipped out to the Caribbean for installation in my house.
    I’ve only just now noticed that it’s saying that it should not be installed above 80 degrees F and I think our average temperature is about 85 degrees F.
    So does this mean that I will have to install at night?
    Or does it mean that the flooring will not hold up even after it’s been installed?
    If it’s the second case, should I just glue it all down and what is the best method to do this?
    The flooring will not be getting any sunlight

    Thanks and I appreciate your videos very much

    This looks awesome! Just so happens we just bought this exact floor (brand and color) for our new kitchen. And thank you for making it clear that it is best to make your starting pieces more random lengths. The directions for DIY’ers will normally just say to use the part cut off of the previous row to start the new row. If it is done that way, you will quickly see a pattern develop where every third or fourth row has the same length starting piece, so the overall floor becomes a repeat pattern that starts over every third or fourth row. A pattern is never a desirable outcome for wood floors.

    The only criticism I have is that is appears in a couple of different places that your end pieces of adjacent rows were too close together. It could have been a trick of the camera angle…so I wanted to mention it for the benefit of any new DIY’ers so they don’t see this and do it at home. I was always taught that the end seams of adjacent rows, should be no closer than 8 inches.

    Thanks for the tips and for not using a box with no doorways or odd angles. This is what more should be showing on YouTube. Real world applications.

    Just finished installing approx 750 sq feet after studying your videos. All went well but 1 question. Ever seen a panel pop a week/2 weeks after the install was finished?

    Thanks so much for this series. I am about to lay my first viynl floor and I am sure you saved me alot of time and frustration. I am so glad I found a video done by a tradesman who took the time to show all the angle cuts and jambs. The manufacturer video showed an install on a square box with no thresholds that left me with a lot of questions. You answered all of them. Thank you sir.

    Hello, can i install lvp on 4 slabs that are leveled individually but not altogether where they meet?

    Wish I could watch this. Seems like there would be some helpful info, but the screeching of the saw in the background is unbearable.
