Hardwood removal can be demanding, but it actually worth’s it there are several ways to remove a hardwood floor but we chose the smartest option. However, if your wood is in good condition, consider selling or donating as there are people who are in the market to purchase old hardwood floor pieces
Okay, so the fastest way to remove old hardwood floors is to cut the boards into smaller sections. This is helpful because hardwood planks are all different lengths and make it really tough to remove quickly, So, you can use a Circular Saw or worm to cut lines into your hardwood, perpendicular to the direction the wood is laying. And cut each section about 1-2 feet wide. And remember to set the thickness of the blade to that of the hardwood. Using a Pry Bar and a Mallet you can start prying the wood. Because of the large number of nails used to install the hardwood, it is recommended to use Nail Claw as it’s faster also to remove staples.
After that you can get a vacuum cleaner to clean up the saw dust and metal particles.
Linoleum Removal Calgary
Our Flouring removal services are extended to linoleum floors removal. Unlike carpet, if you have to discard old linoleum or vinyl, it takes a little more work. So, here are the steps to free up your floorboards.
Removing linoleum floor covering is a challenging and time-consuming job. The sheeting is held down with a strong adhesive force and it requires using a scraper to lift and chip away the old covering but be very careful.
Tools you will require for the job, ranging from a hammer, chisel for really tough spots to a barbecue spatula. Likewise, a scraper – a spade with a flat blade – can be used if the adhesive is not too strong. And a Sander to removes the small bits glue.
Once the sheeting is removed, attack the adhesive with a scraper and work your way systematically across the floor.
Once the linoleum tiles are removed, careful use of a heat gun can help soften the glue left on the floorboards – but it still requires a lot of dogged scraping.
**Take Note, linoleum floor coverings are large, bulky and unwieldy. Have a plan in place for their removal from your property when you are finished. You may need to hire a trailer and its worthwhile checking out dumping costs at your local waste facility.
Bathroom and Kitchen Renovation Calgary
Renovation is very good, but before renovating it there are some things you have to takes note before doing that in order to ensure a successful Renovation.
• Choose elegant fixtures: A pedestal sink with graceful lines is more attractive than a blocky cabinet vanity. A classic claw-foot tub is like bathroom sculpture. Even enclosed in a deck, the simple lines of the lip have an inherent beauty that surpasses most acrylic versions.
• Test bathtub before buying it: Bigger isn’t always better. A 60-inch tub is fine for most people. It offers enough room to stretch out and provides a secure foothold, so you don’t float into oblivion when the tub is full. Assess the angled back and lip for comfort and neck support –- a tub for two people slants at either end and has taps in the middle. If you only have enough space for a small tub, buy an extra-deep one.
• Select Original flooring: Ceramic, marble and stone tiles are all excellent durable and water-resistant choices for a bathroom. Subfloor heating coils will make these hard surfaces warm. Well-sealed hardwood floors offer natural warmth and act as a foil for the other hard, cold surfaces in a bathroom.
• Hang a stylish mirror: One beautifully framed mirror over a sink is more attractive than many surfaces covered with mirror. Supplement it with a wall-mounted adjustable makeup mirror, and consider installing a lighted, mirrored shaving niche in your shower stall.
• Use found space: Take advantage of space between wall studs by recessing a tall storage cabinet into the wall to maximize vertical storage while saving floor space. The cabinet should have an interior depth of at least three inches and a door flush with the wall.
• Use quality materials: Top-quality drawer slides and hinges mean cabinet doors will stay closed and drawers won’t stick. Stay away from drawers that are stapled together or made of particleboard. For cabinet interiors, wood veneer is more durable than melamine, laminate, MDF or particleboard.
• Determine cabinet heights.
If you have eight-foot ceilings in your Kitchen, choose cabinets that go to the ceiling. They offer more storage, enabling you to use extra wall space for artwork or open shelves. If your ceilings are higher than eight feet, leave 15 to 18 inches above the cabinets.
• Decide whether to paint or stain.
Though stained-wood cabinetry is forgiving, most finishes date quickly and aren’t easily altered. Brush-painted cabinets can lend a unique personality.
• Use an island that works.
Beware of placing a bulky cube in the middle of the room. We like islands that have an open, airy look. Ideally, an island should be unencumbered by appliances, but if you want it to house a dishwasher-sink combo or a cooktop, try to maintain the light look of a leggy harvest table.
