Can I use Redgard with Bamboo Flooring?

bamboo flooring 2 Comments »

I am installing bamboo flooring in my house and I have a plywood subfloor. I was told I can use Redgard to waterproof before I install the bamboo flooring. I did some research and could not find anything on this. Is this true? Can I use redgard on the plywood before I install the bamboo flooring?

Red Guard is excellent for tiling. But I m not sure as to why you d need to do this. If your gluing the bamboo down, I m not sure if the wood glue is compatible w/ the Red guard as far as not reacting to each other and causing the glue not to stick.. If your nailing the flooring down then your not doing anything as far as water proofing or using it as a moisture barrier since your driving nails/staples thru it..And then you still should have a felt ot rosin paper under the wood to keep the sub flooring and bamboo from rubbing together. Although the Red Guard may act in this way. So at 40 $ a gallon and 120$ or so for a big bucket , I d question this practice. Plus to properly put it down you need 2 coats ..E mail me thru my avatar if you have any questions GL

Which is cheaper – Carpet or laminate wood flooring?

laminate wood flooring 4 Comments »

Can’t stand the smell of the carpet in our master bedroom and I’m looking to either re-pad and re-carpet or to get laminate wood flooring.

Does anyone know which is cheaper to do? Carpet & padding or laminate wood?

If they are an average , mid range type carpet or laminate , the cost will be about the same as the others stated . But the cost of labor for laminate will run you more since it is a slower process to install. An mid range carpet, installed, will run about 3$ a s/f ( with a pad to warranty the carpet) . A mid range laminate will run 2.25$ a s/f plus 2$ a s/f for installation. Prices vary from area to area but these will give you a basic idea. GL

Rejuvenate Floor Restorer on Laminate Flooring

bamboo flooring No Comments »

We installed laminate wood flooring in our hall, kitchen and family room. Shortly thereafter, our dishwasher overflowed and the shine never came back on our flooring. We saw your commercial and my hubby decided to try the floor products and WOW, the floors look brand new. We got such compliments and our floors are so shiny and rich looking. Thanks so much for making such a great product. We recommend it to all our friends with wood or laminate flooring. We don’t normally write about products but this really protected a big investment in our house. Keep up the good work.
