Re: My vinyl wall stripe experience and how-to tips

I know this is an older thread, but I had a question on installing the vinyl. I just ordered my vinyl.

Re: The other costs of a porcelain/ceramic tile floor


Your cost should be pretty close to that. There are many different options that are similar to the ultra flex and each contractor has their favorites. They are latex/fortified and have a...

Re: The other costs of a porcelain/ceramic tile floor

If you are using a 12x12 tile over concrete, you would be in good shape with using Mapei's Ultra Flex II. If you want a slightly better bond, you could use their Ultra Flex LFT. It is made for...

Re: 30x40 Garage/Shop

Great build. Love it, and I am going to steal a few ideas.

I was wondering what the depth of the cabinets ended up being? I looked through but didn't see the measurement.

Re: Racedeck and pets?

I had the circle track with an older lab and she had no problem when wet. No experience with the free flow, but I would think it would be even safer.

Re: H&C Anyone have any experience with it?

I used that a couple of years back and wasn't impressed. It didn't hold up well and the finish wasn't very nice looking. Scratched very easily I did all of the prep work correctly.

Re: Racedeck flooring Question

I also used the free flow right over the drains in my garage. The slope is very slight, so there isn't any problems with it.

I will try and post some pics soon.

Re: Finishing my garage

Garage looks great. And so does the Camaro. Seems very well thought out.

Do you have any pics or any info on the door tracks for the storage area? Not sure how they work.

Re: Great Garage Makeovers

Re: Ceramic tile installation questions for the experts!

One piece at a time. You don't have to wait to do the seams. Make sure you use a latex/polymer modified thinset over the plywoood/ under the hardi-backer board.

Good luck

Re: H&C Shield-Crete or SW Tile-Clad or Other? HELP PLEASE!

Re: click/clack problem with plastic tiles

I put down landscaping felt/fabric. Very thin and moisture won't bother it.

I laid out an area with and without and there was a big difference in noise. Hardly any with the felt.

Re: 24' ceramic floor tile

Porelain is definately more durable. There are some ceramics that are suitable, but porcelain overall is stronger and has a better glazing.
