Hey! how's it going?
Just a little note on plywood versus luan.
Several years ago I was laying a vinyl floor as part of a kitchen install for a home improvement center.
Instead of sending the normal luan, they sent the 1/4" recommended plywood.
When I questioned then, they said that's what manufacturers were recommending.
Each sheet contained several football inlay patches. Just to be on the safe side I skimmed over with filler and sanded smooth.
The vinyl was I believe Armstrong, it was over 1/6" thick. The cushy type that showed marks from chairs.
Two days later I noticed that every football was showing through the vinyl. Customer was not happy, to say the least.
Needless to say, from that point on I only used luan and have never had any problem.
Unless they changed that process, I would never use again.
Maybe it was just a freak thing, I don't know...lol
Thanks for participating
