    Yup, and 3/32" notch is probably too much.I think you may be right though, it says for felt
    backed vinyl.* I have never made a mistake....I thought I did once....but I was wrong! :DLooks

    If the vinyl is shiny on the back, I think you may have used the wrong adhesive. Read the
    container of adhesive again. It's sheet vinyl right? It's got a brand name and style/series
    name too. What siz...

    You never said specifically what flooring you used. Vinyl, does not tell us much. We also need
    to know which adhesive you used and if the flooring was set into it right away, or if the
    adhesive was al...

    (Sanded 3/4) plywood will be real close to what you want for thickness and is as smooth as you

    underlayment n...

    I'd mud (s...

    tile backer over concrete.We do not install tile backer over any plank or hardwood flooring.

  • Posted in thread: New house with 10 lbs. underlay, but doesn't feel like it on 12-17-2014 at 08:39 PM
    I too am surprised the sales person didn't have you step on both choices to feel the
    difference. If you wanted softer, shoulda gone with 6 lb. It used to customary to use #6 on the
    main floors and #8 ...

    Actually........the ideal way is to have the flange bottom on top of the finished flooring.

    clue on the ...
