    I wouldn't use laminate in a kitchen. Spills can ruin it.

    When you were using "idiot" and "Lowes" in the same sentence, I thought the story would be
    about one of their employees. :D

    Yeah, I was just thinking about nooks & crannies and closets and other cutouts and trims.Then
    there is also a seam to consider if the room is bigger than 12x12IVC vinyl is 13' 3" wide.

    Looks like celotex. Some of it contained asbestos. I would have it tested.

    A solid sheet vinyl like IVC is very DIY friendly.

    I hammered it together a bit better but when one crack closes another one seems to open.
    Perhaps there is 1/16" difference that my laser gps did not register? Not sure i have patience
    for this discipl...

  • Posted in thread: Possible asbestos floor tiles lifting and more. Still non-friable. Repair advice? on 08-30-2014 at 08:12 PM
    It is my understanding that if the tile measures 12" x 12", it does not contain asbestos. If
    smaller dimension (on a full piece), then no guarantees.That is wrong. 12x12 tiles were made
    with asbestos ...

    Hmm.. so they need to do some self-leveling first?I don't think you understand. The floor is
    probably not stiff enough for tile. Gypcrete is thin and flexes. There is no way to stiffen it.

    It's actually a 1982 Fleetwood.Still a good chance the floors are particle board, with the
    flooring installed under the walls.:(

    A 1970s most likely has particle board floors. They all rotted. I would just replace it with
    plywood a sheet at a time. Just be aware that 3/4" particle board was 3/4" thick. 3/4" plywood
    was not 3/4"...
