I want to use the same flooring throughout the entire house. (1300 sq ft double wide) We don't want to spend more than about $2500. & plan to DIY. Has anyone used the wood look vinyl planks sold at various home improvement stores? Does it hold up, buckle, scratch, etc? We live on a 10 acre farm so we need durability. We have partial laminate now and the biggest drawback is the tick tick of dog toenails & wanting the same flooring throughout. I'm not set on any product yet & would greatly appreciate all comments/suggestions. Thank you!!! Reply CrystalMHL October 6, 2013 Hello! You're in luck, we laid the cheapest floating floor/laminate that Lowe's has (around .68/sq ft) and I can tell you not to do it. It scratches very easily and the boards are manufactured in a way that makes at least 10% of the box not fit in properly so they are useless. It's one of those old lessons where you really do get what you pay for…lol…and yep, I have to keep the dogs nails trimmed short to keep them from clicking (but I think that would happen with any flooring).. I was just so anxious to get rid of the original 30+ year old flooring that I didn't really care about anything else..Plus we were able to get the whole house done for less than $500 plus padding. It will work for a few years anyway and I'm as happy as can be to not have to look at that old vinyl or carpet anymore With your price range of around $1.90 sq ft. you should be able to find a great flooring that will have a good finish that doesn't scratch easy. Maybe a flooring store has overstock or close out for the amount you need, that way you get a better quality for a cheaper price. I'm sure you'll find something that works well cause there's so many choices out there in every price range. Good luck!! Reply Shannon October 16, 2013 I’m thinking of a kitchen remodel of my 24 x 56 2001 Southern Energy. There is a wall behind my built-in ‘china cabinet’. Could this be a load bearing wall? How can I tell if it’s definitely load bearing? Reply Crystal Adkins October 16, 2013 Hello Shannon! I have just the article for you Note: I always recommend having a professional inspect your home before any modifications, especially the major ones. With that said, if there’s a will there’s a way..lol http://mobilehomeliving.org/removing-walls-in-a-mobile-home/ Reply Ideal Home Improvement November 1, 2013 This is a great checklist. A kitchen remodel is a complex and time consuming process. Preparation is key, especially when it comes to setting the budget.
