Probably won’t pergo wet areas in mobiles anymore. Just had to repace master bath, second bath, utility room in a singlwide I own(laid less than one year ago). Even small amounts of moisture over time seem to warp and expand this flooring and with the cost of Pergo, I have done a trial of Flexitec and 12" square vinyl peel and stick to see which holds up better.
Flexitec is 16 per yard and 12’ square stick downs are about 9 per yard.
I am really thinking of using one color and pattern of 12" sq. in all rentals and buy several palletts at a time. A box costs me 18 and covers 20 square feet. My floor guy uses mastic and then sticks them and has had great luck with this.
How many times have you had to replace an entire room of vinyl when there is just a single tear from moving apps or a small burn or stain? With these squares, a putty knife to remove damaged tile, putty knife to lay a thin coat of mastic and voila repair complete.
I love laminated flooring for common areas and hallways and berber in bedrooms. I will see which covering (flexitec or squares) holds up best in “wet” areas. We have always used better quality products for sales homes versus rental homes, but with carpet and pergo going thru the roof we need to find cheaper, more durable replacements…we go thru 15 rolls of pad and 2 rolls of carpet every month in rentals alone!!! Carpet team also showed me a great application to avoid removing old vinyl (3 layers thick) and floating uneven floor. Luan (sp?), 1/4 thick and 5 per sheet and lays down fast for a great finished base…
Any other ideas out there??
