Tiles used on floors tend to be thicker than wall tiles. Also, floor tiles are subjected to flexing as people walk over them. Therefore, if floor tiling a wooden floor, use a flexible cement adhesive and grout designed to give and take without cracking.
each tile is one square foot so you need 55 tiles
You would need a commercial sander machine. However, you will also need various grades of sandpaper, both for the machine and manual use. First, carefully remove all baseboards. Take care using the sander near walls. With the machine, you begin with the bigger grain sandpaper-- it sort of blasts through the toughest varnish and stain. You switch to a finer grain then, so you don't destroy the wood. You'll need to do manual sanding or… Read More
The maths is; 6 inch = 0.5 foot & 24 inch = 2 foot therefore 0.5 (height) x 2 (width) x 75 (Sq ft) = 1/2 × 2 = 75
Vitrified tiles are often used outdoors due to their water and frost resistance.
Floor wax was something all 1950's housewives thought of a LOT ! Nothing was more important to a 1950's housewife than a shiny kitchen floor ! In fact, a popular consolation prize for losing contestants on 1950's game shows was floor wax !
It is likely they would do so. Hover boards do not hover.
Try dampening a rag with mineral spirits and try it on a small hidden area of the linoleum. If it is okay, repeat on the polyurethane spill. Use a clean area of the rag each time so you do not spread the polyurethane. Wash the floor thoroughly after you are done; dispose of the rags since they are now a fire hazard.
all of these tiles will be tricky. "Large Format Tiles" are considered anything with a dimension greater than 15" in one dimension, and all of these tiles qualify for that designation. In order to set tiles of this size, you need to have two things in the substrate: stiffness and flatness. For flatness, the typical requirement is not more than 1/8" variation in 10' in any direction. (Keep in mind that a typical floor is… Read More

yes you can all you need to do is go to Lowes and buy some self leveler in the flooring department, just know that if you don't go wall to wall with it could crack and make a mess also I would advise to spread on concrete adhesive before using. If you have a wooden floor you can use treated 2x2 and lay them down 16" apart and put at least 12 inch plywood on… Read More
If a ceramic tile floor, first sweep up all dust and dirt then use a machine to scrub the tiles. If a carpeted floor, vacuum up all dirt/dust then rent shampooer to clean the carpets.
Say 28 = 7 x 4 feet 3 of 4 inch tiles = 12 inches = 1 foot so 4 feet = 4 x 3 = 12 tiles so 7 feet = 7 x 3 = 21 tiles Answer: 12 x 21 = 252 tiles
Melamine is an inexpensive rugged thermoset plastic that is readily adaptable to a wide variety of uses.
The reason your wood floor is squeaking is it's rubbing up and down on the nails that secure it to the joists. To fix it, you buy a "squeak ender" kit, a container of wood putty the same color as the floor, and maybe a little varnish. This comes with special screws that have heads that snap off.

To a degree yes. The skim coat is normally laid and then polished. Its frequently colour to the customer requirements. The surface is provides a high traffic protection to the floor Its no really suitable for industrial settings like warehouse of engineering or where heavy metal wheeled vehicles will cover it. Places that would use this are Theatres etc as an example its used in the Harry Potter World in London. Additionally its also easier… Read More
Are you saying that the floor has a little bounce to it or sinks a bit in some places? The wood planks that make up the floor must be laid over a subfloor of plywood that has been made level and smooth across the entire floor area. The wood is probably not the problem. What the wood is sitting on is.
It seam's to me that if you apply water repellent before water proofing you defeated your purpose, and if your going to put tile down the concrete absorbs the moisture from the mortar which makes it bond.
It depends on if the varnish is water based or oil based. Water based can be removed by gently rubbing with a nail brush and soap (it depends how long the varnish has been on the surface as the varnish will harden ). It its oil based then the job is really very difficult as the only way is to use very careful and small amounts of thinners which WILL an effect on the vinyl… Read More

Covering a hardwood floor with a laminate is not going to solve your squeak problem. The old floor will still squeak until you address the squeak and fix it. Wood floors squeak because a nail loosens at one end of a board, the wood swells and rubs due to weather, etc. But the problem can be easily solved. If you have exposed joists underneath, you can have someone walk above you and find the squeak… Read More
The idea is to multiply length x width, to get the area in square meters (assuming the room is rectangular). Then multiply that by the cost per square meter.
1 yd = 3 ft 1 sq yd = 1 yd x 1 yd = 3 ft x 3 ft = 9 sq ft → 180 sq ft = 180 ÷ 9 sq yd = 20 sq yd → 20 x 11.50 = 230 [whatever: pounds, euros, dollars, etc]
Answer Take a warm iron and some paper toweling and put the toweling down, hold the iron over it briefly and keep doing this until the wax gets warm and bleeds into the toweling. Be careful the iron is not too hot! Then take a light grid piece of sandpaper and lightly go back and forth on the red stain length-wise (do not press too hard) until the dye is out. After the dye is… Read More
try using a little mineral spirits on a soft cloth .
Start by sweeping the laminate flooring. It is also good if you clean the baseboards. Collect the dust and dirt particles and then throw them away in the garbage. With the help of a bucket mix 2-tablespoons of oil soap with a gallon of warm water. You can also provide the room with pleasant smell by adding at least 10 drops of any scented oil available.Just make sure there isn't too much oil poured as… Read More

Floor tiles are tiles made for use on a floor. They can be made of ceramic, terra-cotta, linoleum, vinyl and other materials. Ceramic tiles are a type of tile made from hardened materials (like clay). People put ceramic tiles everywhere - around the bathroom, kitchen, pools, etc.
In a more concealed spot, try a small amount of Nail Polish Remover on a Q-Tip and dab it on the flooring. If the laminate finish doesn't change much, try a dab on the marker. If that removes the marker, do the whole effected area. Don't sand. I've always tested a small area before I've done the rest. Spray deep woods off on it, wipe it up with a paper towel. This may take 2… Read More

Depending upon the severity of the buildup, there are commercial products available as well as professionals who specialize. If in the early stages, an effective and non-toxic removal can be achieved with a paste made of baking soda and white vinegar. Apply and allow to dry, scrub and rinse, and the scale should clean off.
Purchase a can of ( AFTA ) at Home Depot, usually located in the carpet section. Very little goes a long way. Try to gently scrape the gunk off of the floor. Sometimes a small spray of WD40 and a few minutes will work to remove the rest. If you are trying to remove wax or Mop and Glo, use ammonia water to mop the floor. Let it soak a few minutes and then rinse… Read More

Carpet Cushion or "padding" is just as important as the carpet itself. There are various different types of materials used in carpet cushion. Many years ago, natural fibres (horse hair etc) were used to make a "felt" pad. Synthetic fibres are now used. Felt is used typically were there is commercial traffic and a greater need for sound/acoustic insulation. The large majority of carpet cushion sold/used today is made from rebonded urethane foam chip material… Read More

Sometimes you can fix such problems yourself and sometimes a professional would be best. Good luck with… Read More
CERAMICS The word ceramic is derived from the Greek word κεραμικός (keramos). The term covers inorganic non-metallic materials which are formed by the action of heat. Up until the 1950s or so, the most important of these were the traditional clays, made into pottery, bricks, tiles and the like, along with cements and glass. Clay-based ceramics are described in the article on pottery. A composite material of ceramic and metal is known as cermet. The… Read More
Almost for certain, you have water damage in your sub floor which is weakening the floor, causing it to sag, causing the tile to crack. Yes you could replace the sub floor and flooring, but find what's causing the water damages and fix that first. or a joist could be broken

You can remove varnish from tiles by making a paste that contains two parts calcium carbonate, one part trisodium phosphate and some water. Using a putty knife, spread the paste over the varnish and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Use a plastic putty knife to remove the paste and varnish, scraping along the tiles as you go to remove as much of the varnish as possible. Rinse the tiles with warm water and pat… Read More
there is more than just one style of hardwood, but basically if its 5/16 thick you use 1 inch staples, if its 3/4 inch you use 2 inch nails and you lay all wood across the joist
If it is a water base poly, my guess is that a red food coloring or artists watercolor or acrylic paint which also thins with water could add a tint or even real color, depending on the amount used, to give you translucence. You could try it with as little as a tablespoon full of poly and a small dot of watercolor or drops of red food coloring, etc. Mix them on a newspaper and… Read More
Vapor retarder (commonly known as Vapor Barrier), is commonly used to keep moisture out of a defined area space or material. The 2006 International Building Code defines Vapor Retarder as follows: VAPOR RETARDER. A vapor-resistant material, membrane or covering such as foil, plastic sheeting or insulation facing having a permeance rating of 1 perm (5.7 ´ 10-11 kg/Pa × s × m2) or less, when tested in accordance with the dessicant method using Procedure A… Read More
It would be better to remove the old tile, then put your new tile in it's place. If you tile over the old there is a chance it could come off and your new tile with it. I know of an adhesive swimming pool tile border made of 4mil liner, its a peel and stick called borderlines adhesive tile manufactured by Jedco Products. All the internet websites carry it and it looks great, it would… Read More
Carpet is almost always held down around the edges with nailed down tac strips. You just grab an edge somewhere and tear it up off the floor. You'll then have to remove the tac strips. Try pulling up a corner maybe and looking underneath. You'll see. note: it's possible it was glued down but you remove it the same way. The glue leaves a mess though and you gotta scrape it off. Hope not.
Be sure the hole are free of contamination, oils, and dust. The affected area is best to be a rough texture to allow for bonding. Patch the affected area with a stainable polymer modified patching material or you can use gray portland cement with some sand aggregate. If using the polymer patch option, be sure to apply TWO coats (one filler and one finish). If you decide to use the portland mix, scrub some re-emulsifiable… Read More
If you can pull up the carpet to get to that area, then you can screw or nail through the offending/sqeaking floor board into the subfloor and then put back the carpet. If you have a basement try to find where it sqeaks from below [while you are in the basement, have someone step on and off the offending spot]. Once you know which board(s) is loose, screw a screw into it from the floor… Read More
Depending on the type of carpet, mix a weak solution (about 5%) of clorine bleach and use a spray bottle and brush it in with a stiff brush. Test it first in an inconspicuous area to see if the fabric will fade. If the carpet is colorsafe you can brush the mixture into the carpet then use a carpet cleaner to pull the mixture back out. That will often pull the mould stain out, depending… Read More

You have to use a floor scraper and scrape it off. It is a grueling job but if you're lucky it might just come off easy.
The following works on VCT tile glued to a cement floor - primarily in a space less than 900 square feet (any more than that I would recommend at least looking into an air-powered scraping tool): The flat end of a heavy crow bar can slide between the tile and floor serving to remove the VCT. It's a lot of work (repeated chiseling motion is necessary - but this seems very effective). Another tip is… Read More
You can use a water-based polyurethane ( or oil-based if you prefer). Go to Home Depot or Lowe's where there is a big selection. Some of these products zero in on their uses for particular projects.

Answer Mix up a paste of bicarbonate of soda and water. Best to use a paintbrush or something similar to paint the paste onto the grout. Leave for a few hours and then wash off. Grout should be sparkling white. For really stubborn stains, use the same paste on a soft toothbrush and some old fashioned elbow grease. There is a product from Australia that is a broom on mop off grout cleaner no nasties… Read More
One solution if you want to put in a little more work yourself, is to try and find a wrecked LS1. The 2000's should be good pickin in the more urban areas, as long as the windows are still in and the carpet hasn't been left in the elements for too long. Try calling several salvage yards in the area and just tell them what you are looking for. If you want to just pay… Read More
If you've got the money honey! Yes of course you can. Just be aware of the cost for teak boards....sort of like the Rolls Royce motto....if you have to ask the price, it's probably too expensive. Dave
If it is just one scratch, most home centers sell a stain pen you could touch up the scratch with. If there are scratches all over you'll need to sand and refinish the entire floor. You'll need to seek out a rental business and get yourself a floor sander and edger. Try to get a vibrating orbital sander, they are much more user friendly than a disc sander. When the sanding is done, follow the… Read More

150 square feet. Just multiply length by width - the answer is the square footage.
To find the square feet of a room, multiply the length times the width. 12 feet X 12 feet = 144 square feet.
Nine of them exist in a square yard and 144 square inches equala a square foot.
That depends on your individual preferences and needs. There are excellent carpets as well as excellent wood floors. Carpet will keep a room warmer but wood floors won't stain and are easier to clean. Wood floors will typically last longer than carpet. They can be refinished to get scratches out after years of wear. Good quality carpet generally has a life of approximately 20 years. Carpet is also never advised in rooms like kitchens and… Read More
Kits are available to make sure the toilet flange is level with the new floor. These kits are adjustable because of the differences in thickness of flooring and material, any subflooring laid down, grout, infloor heating etc. . Ideally, you want to seat the toilet on the wax gasket, and attach the mounting bolts, and have the toilet flat on the finished floor. These kits are easy to find and use.
One squre yard = 3 linear feet [lf] x 3 linear, or 9 square feet [ft2, sqf.] per square yard. Therefore, 9 ft2 x 44 yards = 396 ft2.
This depends on the age and whether it has a basement or not
The bumps you are referring to are called "staple bumps". They are the result the fastener (staple or cleat) not being fully seated during installation. This is an installation-related error. John T. Sparks Ceritified Flooring Inspector
You can use strippers and or aggresively grind the surface. The matrix of the terrazzo is a resin and strippers will usually not affect it. When putting something on a surface it is always a good idea to try it in an incospicuous area to make sure it will not harm it. Grinding may be a job for a professional but if you have expierence then it is rather easy.
I also am looking to contact the manufacture to find more information on the warranty process. Our local Big Lots has provided me with a phone number (after going through multiple chains of command - took 5 levels of bosses to find a contact number). I have tried the number and it just rings, no recording or contact hours. Here is the number they gave me - 1-800-726-9209. I will watch this post to see… Read More
How about renting a commercial floor cleaner?
Multiply 12 by 20 so 240 square feet. Length times width.
I pay my subcontract installers $5 per foot on if over 100 sq foot. They provide labor, all tools, thinset and clean up. They must be insured for $250k. (located in CT. would vary by area I'd guess)
This is like asking how much does a car or a house cost. The average price for decent quality residential carpet is around $2.50 per square foot.
Grout residue can be removed with commercial products available at home centers and hardware stores. The grout removers generally contain an acid which reacts with the lime in the grout cement, dissolving it.
You can remove candle wax spills from wooden furniture or just about any type of wood surface. First you need to soften the wax with a hairdryer set on medium heat to melt the wax. When the wax starts to melt wipe it off with a soft cloth, you will see it move like butter. Wipe the area with a mild vinegar solution and polish as you normally would for a great shine!
