    Hey Shannon. How can I fix a 1/4” drill hole in my vinyl plank flooring?

    The color is dark brown with black grain lines so color is easy to hide. Baseboards are in and it’s not bad enough to replace the whole piece.
    Some idiot (me) was drilling through a metal shelf rail and the drill shot through the metal and my plastic drill tray I was using to “protect” the floor. Ugh.
    Thanks!

    Great job. Most informative yet. You gave me a better understanding of the process. And I'm glad that you ran into a few snags and showed how you resolved them, as I'm sure I'll have more than a few.

    Shannon I really like the video, great information for a do it yourselfer, I was wondering why do you have to stagger the planks since you cannot see the planks (joints) like hard wood or laminate flooring, am I missing something? Thanks in advance!

    In this Video, you have used a Vinyl floor with Cork backing. I have noted, that his Product is offered at Lowes with CaliBamboo, Called CaliVinyl. I am not asking you to promote this company; however, how is your experience with this product, do you feel it is a great product? I am planning to purchase this product for my Place from, Bathroom to Kitchen and Living Room.

    Shows the basics if you're working in a square room. Most homes and definitely all older homes don't have square walls.

    If you would use a scrap piece of flooring to lock across both pieces, there would be no need to use your foot to hold both ends together. it's the process I use and it works great!

    Do you recommend putting a sub floor on concrete? I live in Fl and converted a patio with a concrete floor into part of the house.

    The hall floor, and that room have the same flooring, so I don't understand why you didn't continue from the hallway and come into the room and not have and transition at all. Its ideal to have a smooth transition from room to room, and you install a transition strip on purpose.
    I don't get it…why put one in when you didn't have to?
    btw….you have a twin. His name is Jason, a friend of mine e that is also in the construction trade. When I first started this video I thought he was doing an instructional video. It's mind boggling as to how much you two look like each other. I will share this video with him. He might say…..I don't remember making this video lol

    I own a little cafe and I would like to install vinyl planks but I don't know what should I do since there is vinyl flooring. My question is do I need to glue it down to secure it better in a high traffic area with tables, chairs and booths or the planks interlocking system is enough?

    Is sub-floor required, recommended, ideal, optional, or it varies by manufacturer? Or, can I lay click vinyl planks directly over concrete? If so, what do I need to do to prep the concrete (i.e., fill any small holes, make sure it's level, clean it, etc.)? Thanks!

    I'm having a hard time finding a video on coming up to an entry door with a threshold. I don't think your supposed to leave a gap between the threshold and vinyl. Do I undercut it as with the trim or what? Ps good video.

    I see a lot of how to's on You Tube. I am not a craftsman but I am pretty handy. I truly enjoyed this video. I had installed the older PITA flooring 8 years ago. It seems much better and now with a few insights I will probably redo the Open front area of the house. Thank You. I will look up Patreon.

    Shannon, could you not have started at the door and worked toward the outer wall. This would have negated the need for the threshold or am I missing something. I realize the direction of laying is a given but maybe, you could have planned to run the hallway into the room.

    Also, why was the plywood subfloor installed?
