Bruce Place Basement Wood

Work was done by James at Super Floors LLC. He installed vinyl COREtec Pro 7 Biscayne (5 boxes).  Wood was purchased from Lynnwood in Beltsville MD

We chose this waterproof, natural-wood look for the basement and high traffic area. We may consider installing same type in the kitchen.

Painting was also done in the bedroom, Rec room and bathroom

Atlantic Street Kitchen & Floor

We ripped up the kitchen floor all the way to the sub floor and installed a new kitchen countertop and cabinets.

Previously the last contractor had installed concrete and tile (not even self-leveling compound). The floor was level but the excess weight was causing stress on the joists.

Kam demoed the floor, sub floor and  underlayment. To her surprise she found vinyl tile underneath the underlayment

Kam then installed OSD directly over the old vinyl and then poured self-leveling compound.

For the floor moulding, she chose 8" moulding and then installed quarter rounds around the moulding.  She chose 8" because the floor was not completely level.  This helped tremendously.

Then she installed the subfloor and the roll-out vinyl -- be careful with the vinyl -- it's easy to scratch (especially when moving the fridge).

If there are any nicks or scratches, use clear silicon sealant.  Kam used silicon sealant also for the moulding and trim.

The new Whirlpool range from Home Depot works great.  Decided not to get 5 year warranty

We installed laminate countertop over three cabinets we purchased from Home Depot

Final product looks amazing and the tile matches the countertop.

French Drains on Lebaum

If you have a leaky basement, you should look at installing french drains.  Water comes from the foundation and is sloped down to a trench that is dug in the perimeter of the basement.

The trench is filled with crushed stone and is covered with a fabric to keep small particles from entering the stones.

The drain is connected by PVC pipes to a catchment that sends the water outside.
