re: Vinyl plank flooring over concrete - clickboom
If it is glue down, like stated numerous times you don't need a vapor barrier. Just make sure slab is super clean and perfectly smooth or you will have issues. If it is a locking LVT (one that clicks together like laminate a vapor barrier is also not necessary. IF you use an underlayment for sound, ...

re: Sycamore trees - clickboom
This has to be one of the worst trees ever. I have a huge one in my front yard. It drops limbs constantly, the leaves are the size of dinner plates, it sheds its bark, and the seed balls are the worst. They are made up of sharp seeds and these very fine fibers that go EVERYWHERE. I wouldn't recommen...

re: Hardwood Floors on Slab in Baton Rouge - clickboom
Hardwood floors are fine on a slab in Baton Rouge. You need to do a calcium chloride test to make sure you don't have a moisture issue in your slab. Engineered wood floors are the way to go. Don't do bamboo it isn't all it is cracked up to be. I would check some local floor stores over Lowes. Don't ...

re: Anyone here jet ski to Sting Ray City in Grand Caymans? - clickboom
We rented a charter boat called Double Trouble. I think it was around $700 for the day and Daniel took us to a few snorkeling spots, Starfish Point, a lunch spot, and Stingray city. Best day of the trip by far. If I can find his business card I will post contact info. He cusses like a sailor too, so...

re: Thoughts on Excellence in Punta Cana? - clickboom
We went there for our Honeymoon in November of '14. We were very underwhelmed. The food was ok, no AC in the restaurants, I can remember sweat dripping onto my grilled lobster. It was partially being renovated when we were there so rooms were dated one pool was closed. First night we were there had ...

re: Engineered Wood vs. "Wood" Tile Floors - clickboom
Engineered wood floors are REAL WOOD! They are made for southern states and the moisture issues we encounter DAILY. If you go with engineered wood floors go with a hickory/pecan hand scraped. That way if it does scratch you can get a stain pen or sharpie depending on color and blend it with the char...

re: Anyone else get sunspots(Tinea versicolor) every summer? - clickboom
Use Selsun Blue with selenium. Put it on where you have the spots and let it dry. Then take a shower. Do this for a week or two and it should go away. Also Under Armour or similar shirts that breathe help too....

re: Engineered Wood floors - clickboom
Im not going to get in a keyboard pissing match about bamboo flooring. However a lot of distributors have gotten rid of their bamboo lines because of the amount of problems. The previous distributor and current distributor I work for both dropped their bamboo lines. Here is a good article on bamboo ...

Unfortunately the chick doesn't have to be fat to dent it. A 100lb woman has over 1600psi in her high heels when she takes a step. That is more than an elephants foot print. So the heftier the woman the more damage. 200lber could sink a boat....

re: Engineered Wood floors - clickboom
The wood tile is a good option, however it is hard and extremely cold. It has to be installed a certain way due to the natural bow in tiles over 18" or you will have a lot of lippage. My parents wanted to put tile through their entire house even after I told them not to and they regret it. While it ...

re: Engineered Wood floors - clickboom
Engineered wood is most definitely wood. All the way down to the core unless you buy one that has an HDF core. The top layer of engineered wood is either rotary peeled, offset rotary peeled, face sawn, or rift and quartered....

re: Engineered Wood floors - clickboom
Engineered is only way to go in Louisiana on a slab. It is designed to handle the natural side to side movement the wood tends to have and it holds up to moisture a lot better than solid wood. Lumber Liquidators is just that a liquidation outlet carrying stuff that other company's are getting rid of...

re: Let's talk lactose intolerance. - clickboom
I was lactose intolerant from 4th grade until I was 23 or 24. I took lactaid everyday and it would work about 30% of the time. One day I was in Walgreens about to buy lactaid and there was a product called Digestive Advantage: Lactose intolerance. At the time it was made by Ganaden now I think it is...
