Yes. The quality of most of what yards round here offer is very poor. I normally don't recommend DIYers to do them partly on material quality grounds, and partly because they don't understand the need to use flooring crampsIts getting harder and harder to get flooring quality boards not long ago available in sizes from 4" -9" , has anyone els got this problem
You have to do your own - groove the edges then rip loose tongies from 1/4in plywood. Works very well, but it requires a router, a cutter and a table saw - unless you can find a very accommodating timber yard. Are there any?I cant understand why people are that keen on ply floors if they don't have t& g edges or am I missing something
There's one to cause arguments. I fix everything when I'm doing flooring because I was taught to do it that way. Never found a reason to change and I'm always concerned that cutting corners just leads to problems in the longer term (like squeeky floors)I'd be screwing anything down, but with floor boards is it necessary to screw EVERY board down (which would be quite a task) or can you get away with every few and let the T&G do the rest?
