Vinyl flooring usually has preserve its common presentation, such as single in rolls of large sheets, however time also has reward vinyl in matters of style and nowadays vinyl flooring is available in more practical, much easier to setting up formats.

At Finish Build vinyl flooring tiles are always recommended for commercial uses. Due to the lack of weight FinishBuild vinyl flooring products are usually purchased in 12-inch squares that feature adhesive backing. The thicker the tile is, the better it will hold up over longer periods of time, but what we really think it is important is the acoustic properties this material owns. Installing tile is an ideal project for DIY eagers, particularly in smaller rooms or in this case fashion shows ramp.

Nevertheless, it is important to purchase all tiles from the same lot because, while other lots may be labeled as being the same pattern and color, slight differences in shade may occur. When it comes about setting your chalk lines, starting in the center of the room is what we usually recommend. After removing paper backing, press tiles into place. Keep into account that trimming your tiles at the walls and other edges. Subsequently we suggest you to roll tiles in both directions to set them steady.

What FinishBuild recommends:

3 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY InstallationWhen it comes to installing vinyl planks, let me tell you is perfectly doable. Since vinyl flooring planks come with an easy interlocking system, you can easily jump on the journey of actually doing it yourself. At FinishBuild we are here, once again, with the purpose of helping you on do the first moves.

First of all let’s clean the room. Before starting, empty your room of all furniture and make sure that the surface of the room is perfectly smooth by removing nails, debris and scraping up any old adhesive. Take into account that your sub floor needs to be dry as well as be smooth and as even possible because every lump, bump and crease may appear visible. Make a template of the floor using felt paper.


 

Materials you would use:

  1. Pencil
  2. Tape measure
  3. Hammer
  4. Vinyl cutting knife
  5. Sealant
  6. Broom

6 1 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY InstallationPhase 1:

Once we have a clean surface, there is an important move you should definitely consider if you are aiming for outstanding results: Level your subfloor​, generally vinyl planks flooring products can be install onto existed flooring surfaces. Therefore check the condition of your subfloor, if a surface is in poor conditions, you may need to substitute it. You can drill in a plywood underlayment with screws fairly easily, nevertheless it is important to screw heads below the surface of the wood. If you install an underlayment over your existing subfloor, make sure the surface is level. Afterwards, sealing is our next step. Paint a coat of sealant onto your subfloor. Protect the bottom of your walls or cabinets with strips of masking tape to avoid splash. Once the floor is sealed, let it cure for as long as required before you start laying your vinyl planks.

Phase 2:

Now is time for you to make an important choice. Decide on which direction you will lay your vinyl planks. Subsequently, measure the floor to work out where the middle of your middle row will sit. This is your middle line. In order to be double extra sure, I personally suggest (and if you have the time) to face vinyl planks on the floor to get a clear idea of how can tiles adjust to the space. This also can help you to get a visual plus of the vinyl planks you might have to cut in order to fit edges. Next, hammer a nail at each end of this line and then tie a string chalk line between them. Snap your string chalk line to mark your center line on the floor.

Now proceed to set each plank by laying the first row of vinyl plank flooring, whether is by peeling them off on the back for each plank (in the case they are the adhesive type) or by assemble them if they come with the interlocking system. Subsequently flatten them it into place, over the top of the center line and remember that each vinyl plank has a directional arrow on its backing paper. At FinishBuild we strongly suggest that in order to obtain the finest visual result, lay all your planks facing the same way.

Lay the second row of vinyl plank flooring next to the first. Stagger the second row so the end of each plank lines up with the middle of the plank in the previous row. When laying the third row of planks, use your combination square to make sure its joins line up with the joins in the first row and try to maintain this staggered pattern going the whole way across the floor.

Phase 3:

pros and cons of vinyl flooring destacada 8 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY InstallationOn this phase you must let go the extra vinyl material. Some of your vinyl floor planks will need to be trimmed to fit around the floor corners. Take into account that in phase 2 you can be aware of how much material is not going to be longer needed however, this phase allows you to measure and mark out your lines on each plank and make your cuts with a trimming knife. In order to get finest results, go over the cut line two or three times instead of trying to cut all at once. When your trim is finished, remove the backing paper and stick the plank in place hoping for the best. We recommend you (in case you have adhesive type) to curve and bend the board as you lay it down, visualize that when installing part of the vinyl plank would be against the floor while the part yet to be placed is in the air. Successively, roll the board down and onto the surface of your floor. The aim with this procedure is to avoid the development of air pockets, however you can also help yourself with a piece of fabric on your hand to press the boards to the ground.

4 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY Installation

To sum up, after installation, clean adhesive from tile surfaces with wet cloth. Fasten trim and moldings to the wall, not the flooring. In addition, avoid heavy traffic on the new installation for at least 72 hours while adhesive sets.

Did you know that statistically speaking, garages are one of the most common areas for storing items of any kind? Whether is for dog food, gardening items, tool kits, sports items, or even old paint cans, no wonder why Americans often go for self- storage space renting.

Nowadays, garages are an important part of American households, since they are a vital extension of houses, garages usually tent to pack memories, projects we never dare to accomplish and any other promise with never reached, don’t you agree? We all have a trace of this, and whatever your reasons are, FinishBuild understands that sometimes finding yourself in clutter spaces can affect your mood toward others. Therefore we invite you to check our:

Garage organization draft: Purpose

Regarding sport items you regularly used, we suggest you to place them close to the garage door. Purpose defeat any other argumentation in garage organization systems, therefore in the case of rarely used items try to place them in spots where you rarely look, the highest-to-reach is a good example.

In the Garage, items you use together should be side by side. In order for you to find them without losing time, items such as gardening tools and lawn chemicals, should be stored close to one another, same situation with nails, hammer and carpentry tools.

In the case of bulky equipment such as lawnmowers, wheelbarrow and ladders, try to locate them in corners, where they can stay steady and protect you in case of being bumped or knocked over by your car.

What FinishBuild staff recommends

When it comes to your garage, our number one advice is: avoid items on the floor whenever possible. Since this area regularly provides shelter to your car, you might not want to be way-crowded in case of emergency. Subsequently, you might be surprise on how much freedom and positive aspects can you get from a free path. Nevertheless, the advantages of garage space can be wisely profitable if you consider these ideas:

 Set a proper base: 

pros and cons of vinyl flooring destacada 8 300x300 DIY Garage Ideas: Genious Item Organization

Regarding flooring garage products, we consider that it does not have to be focused on a particularly chic look but a more serene and functional base, for this reason FinishBuild suggests you to try with a more neutral and long lasting material such as sealed concrete floor that can be also colored with some covering products like epoxy painting. In addition, we believe that an extra safety measures are never overrated for these kind of areas, therefore some vinyl sheet to protect high traffic areas can also enhance your household garage.

On the other hand, is highly recommendable not only to seal properly you garage foundations but also any other area that might cause you a future air or water leakage. On this way you might definitely be adding some extra safety measure on minimizing the danger of contaminants such as car drain, paint, solvents or gardening supplies toward other area inside the house or into conditioned spaces. 


Set proper illumination:

Garages should be able to provide you a suitable illumination atmosphere in order to allow you to find items you need, or even to provide you a time to time work area. FinishBuild suggest to add white lighting, opt for 4-foot fluorescent light bulbs which work well in cold temps. On the other hand incandescent bulbs are also another options in which you can find the halogen and xenon bulb types. These kinds provide a more focused lighting than fluorescents are highly useful for detailed projects. Even though Halogens produce the brightest most focused light also generate the most heat, therefore we suggest you to consider which is best for you.

Overhead Space:

finishbuild thinks about school gym flooring options 2 300x300 DIY Garage Ideas: Genious Item Organization

Garage would probably not be one of your gathering room first option, this is why FinishBuild encourages you to take advantage of upper space around explore to install some drill shelving units around your upper garage area. In addition, also keep into account that ceiling is an unlimited spot for hanging long, flat items you do not use every day, such as ladders and seasonal sports gear. Thus, make sure that any shelves you hang from the ceiling don’t interfere with your garage door’s operation and that there is enough clearance to avoid scraping the roof of your car.

Containers:

For easy and quick storage, we advise you to purchase stackable clear-plastic bins with covers, they not only will help you to gather small handy tools but also help you to maintain them dry and ready to go. Try label them in order for you to keep a control of what you own. These clear jars are available in different sizes for sorting hardware and small items. However do not get to excited, buy just the amount you think your garage require, remember that plastics have a wicked influence on Mother Earth. On the other hand, if you aim for privacy, lockable cabinets are also a good choice for storing chemicals products and other items you want to avoid to your kids to get into.

Open Shelves:

When choosing storage units, you have the last verdict. Open shelves are another viable options for those who prefer direct access to tools and any other items in the garage. These shelves are less expensive, and the absence of swinging doors allow you to scan what you have stored. For some users cabinets with doors give the excuse to stay disorganized because you can hide the evidence, which might apply for some, in any of the cases it is a matter of preference.

finishbuild thinks about school gym flooring options 1 300x300 DIY Garage Ideas: Genious Item Organization

Tool hanger:

For the DIY’s, a tool hanger is the best option for men who are always using carpentry or engine tools on their daily basis, subsequently we suggest plywood drilled structure to hang tools for more accessible and comfortable work.

Adjust big items to the wall:

Even thought we might think of endless solutions to avoid items around your garage, there are some that just not would be able to hide. In the case of well-proportioned items, we suggest to gather wheelbarrows, ladders, and any other big items and even hang them on the wall instead of leaving it on the floor. It does not have to be suspended, with the use of some plumbing hooks screwed to the wall (1-1/2-in. hooks) you can attached them to the wall to maintain them steady.Be wise and drill a pilot hole and then drive in the screw hook to hold the wheelbarrow upright. To release the wheelbarrow, just turn the hook.

Care is equal to love:

Last but no least. Break-ins are common, therefore secure the entry door with a dead bolt and keep garage windows locked. And no matter how short periods you might think you would be away of your garage door, always close it.

Destacada 300x138 What You Need To Know About Berber Carpets

As a homeowner who is always looking forward to improve your spaces and make the most of them, it is very probable that you feel attracted by all the different colors and textures that you can find in the accessories that the home market has to offer. In this opportunity we would like to share entertaining information about Berber carpets, which is a style of carpet among all the types of carpeting you can opt for. But before to start mentioning the pros or cons of this eye- catching home accessory, let’s make some research about the origin of this amazing style of carpet. Berber carpet owns its name to a tribe of people located in North Africa; they make their cloaks base on the same multi-leveled loops, using heathered and flecked yarns in order to create unique loops from the largest ones to tighter loops that help to give the yarn special interest and definition.

At the beginning, Berber carpets were thought to be installed only in basement rooms or home offices; but then thanks to how versatile they are, this style can excellently fits in any type of décor, what makes it now a really popular choice for all of the areas of your home. Today is possible to find both traditional and modern Berber carpet designs that are exceptionally distinguished by its different knotting patterns, dyes as well as textures.

Opting for Berber carpet: Pros

Berber is one of the most durable styles of residential carpet; this is the most popular selling point of this type of carpet. Even though Berber is made in looped and thus the fiber is stronger than it is in cut form, this does not necessary mean that all Berbers are the most durable among the carpet styles. The key to select a good quality carpet is by comparing two products with the same pattern of composition, and choose that one which has better durability for the same amount of money.

a1 300x200 What You Need To Know About Berber Carpets

Since there are many types of Berbers, it will be very important for you to learn about them, in order to determine which one will provide you the best value for what you have paid. Moreover, this type of carpet is available in different prices that can be comparable to other cut- pile carpet styles. The fact Berber tends to be lower priced is mainly due to olefin fiber, which is a less costly material than any other fibers, like nylon or wool. Another reason why you can fin really affordable Berber carpets is because of their manufacturing process, which is less demanding than saxonies or friezes.

Additionally, this type of carpet can be found in unique designs and color schemes. Berber carpet generally has a flecked color skin, what gives it an amazing ability to match with multiple interior design schemes; and at this point we might want to highlight that in order to prevent wear patterns, and have your Berber carpets looking awesomely the whole year you should clean it every six to 12 months.

Fortunately wool Berber carpets are so versatile that they do not only provide your spaces with great appearance but also with comfort as they offer you a cushion sensation underfoot as you walk on them. Furthermore, Berber carpets contribute to insulate the room where they are installed, in both temperature and sound; this advantage make this style of carpet an excellent choice for your children’s bedroom or playroom, your family room or any other place of your home.

Opting for Berber carpet: Cons

Berber carpets are made from a loop construction; this can represent a con as there is the possibility of snagging or running, because objects can get caught in the loop and pull it out. However, it takes a lot of force to actually snag a Berber but there are some ways to prevent this from happening.

Another con you may find when having Berber carpets in your spaces is actually a contradictory statement (opposite to one of the pros we have mentioned), because many homeowners think that cheaper Berber have a rough feel and then they get cheaper olefin Berber carpets, finding them very comfortable and this is not an attribute of this style of carpet.

Rather than being stain resistant, we might define Berber as a great spills resistant alternative for your home flooring; spills then to sit on the surface of the carpet, so if you can notice them early, you are likely to prevent them from sinking into the fiber. On the other hand, most of the fibers of Berber are natural and non- toxic, they do not support bacteria growth; this brings you to another great attribute about this type of carpet, and it is due to the fact that Berber is fairly easy to clean and for instance, traditional Berber comes in multi- colored design, so it is easy to hide soiling or any other kind of stains that can occur. Basically this con can be omitted from our disadvantages list; we rather keep our thoughts positive and leave this at one less con.

Berber carpets have become a common option for high traffic areas with considerable heavy use for instance, offices. This way we can see how they have moved our from basement and have gain place in all areas of the home, Berber carpets can now be installed on stairs or railing posts. With Berber carpets there is no need to concern about your pets damaging the carpet, or the carper catching your pets’ claws; however in case you have a cat that really enjoys to sharpen its claws, there will be the possibility of damage the carpet material by repeatedly kneading the carpet, for this particular scenario we would like to recommend you to select a good quality carpet, this style of carpets take a lot of force to tear out one loop. And for more formal areas such as living rooms or dinning rooms, you can choose for a solid color that helps reduce the casual feel that a traditional multi-colored Berber can provide.

According to Chinese culture, strength and softness is exactly how a Chinese person was supposed to conduct himself in society which happens to be Bamboo characteristics. This trendy flooring material can elevate the elegance of a space almost instantly. At FinishBuild we care about your flooring aspects but most of all, we give special attention to the feeling that well-finished surfaces can provide you. Similar to hardwood and yet, still distinct and different, comes Bamboo flooring to add some long-lasting support. Bamboo is a natural surface covering material that has many of the properties of hardwood flooring, even though it is actually produced from a type of grass.

6 reasons for choosing bamboo flooring 6 300x300 6 Reasons for Choosing Bamboo Flooring

What FinishBuild loves about bamboo flooring is that it will bring you joy, stability and well-based memories. Sustainable but also eco-friendly, Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Because this material grows so rapidly, it can be harvested frequently without damaging the ecosystems of bamboo forests. Nevertheless, choosing Bamboo flooring is a great choice that US households make every day in contribution to Mother Earth for those interested in green building materials.

 Bamboo has been used through history not only because of the strength of the material. Bamboo sticks are hollow and it has become a symbol of the internal capacity of a modest person to accommodate the opinions of others. For these reasons, in China, bamboo was also eulogized in songs and poetry. With the stability of planned building, Bamboo flooring would be a great decision for flooring in an endless number of home applications.

 

The Benefits of Natural Bamboo Flooring

1.Ecologically Friendly: Bamboo is made from natural vegetation. The bamboo plant is a highly renewable resource, which means that while it takes a tree 50 years to reach a height of 10 m, a Bamboo can easily reach the same height after only 50 days, and after five years it can be used for commercial purposes.6 reasons for choosing bamboo flooring 2 300x300 6 Reasons for Choosing Bamboo Flooring

2.Water Resistant: Bamboo belongs to the lily family and is native to shady, tropical rainforests where there is plenty of water. This material is slightly more resistant to water damage, stains, and warping than hardwood materials, although it is still a concern. As people are becoming more ecologically conscious they are demanding products that reflect these values.

3.Price: When it comes to prices, Bamboo flooring is valued at about the same level as most hardwood floors. Prices you can find in the market might rank from $2.00 per square foot – $8.00 per square foot. Bamboo flooring is a relatively economical material considering it is a natural resource and the resilience properties it carries; however prices per square foot would depend on a variety of characteristics.

4.Quality: Bamboo, is extremely strong, because of the principles of mechanics Bamboo happen to own much greater flexural and stable capacity than a solid structure. These variations allow bamboo to combine its lean elegance with immense strength; no wonder why we already are seeing bamboo bicycle and bamboo houses.

6 reasons for choosing bamboo flooring 4 300x300 6 Reasons for Choosing Bamboo Flooring

5.Long-lasting material: Thanks to its large number of fibers, Bamboo remains connected with very fine fibers, which are the secret that makes it unbreakable, these fibers run the entire length of the bamboo stem connecting all the segments. However, FinishBuild experts says that the darker the bamboo the less long-lasting it will be. That is due to the dark kinds are caused by a process known as carbonization, which places the bamboo under a high level of heat and pressure. This both changes the color and weakens the material.

6.Refinishing: Over time Bamboo flooring might discolored, scratched, or marred. FinsihBuild is glad to work with Bamboo Flooring because its surfaces can be refinished, sanding it down and subsequently re-enhance with finishing coats to add a fresh new look.

Bamboo gives and provides by empting its interiors, so if you are into a humble but strong and also stable lifestyle then this Chinese Plant would be the best companion. FinishBuild is glad to have the opportunity to learn from Bamboo who when in the storm times, it bends with the wind. And when the storm ceases, it resumes its upright position. Its ability to cope with adversity and still stand firmly without losing its original ground is moving.

Options like drill in a plywood underlayment with screws fairly easily, with the screw heads should be below the surface of the wood, can be a suitable loophole. If you install an underlayment over your existing subfloor, make sure the surface is equal.

Cleaning spaces are very important when laying tiles or any type of flooring products. Due to dust, debris and wood chips can cause bumps in vinyl plank flooring, you should thoroughly sweep before moving on to the next step. Use a broom first, and then pull out a vacuum with a hose attachment to pick up the remaining particles. Avoid tracking new dust and dirt once you’ve cleaned the subfloor.
