Replacing this sheet vinyl floor in a laundry room. We do need to give this a nice finished surface. So our floor will stick to it we're going to install quarter edge lean over top. If you only have one layer of the floor, you can go over the top of it with one more layer if you have any more layers than that, you should pull them because I have a sub floor repair here and my boards are four feet wide. I'm going to run my boards this way, so my four feet breaks over this scene.
I don't want to line up two seams on top of each other after we get a good sleep on the floor, we're going to bring in our first piece. It's fitting in here nice goes wall-to-wall and if you do have to put a seam in it make sure you have a factory edge that you can, but I'm using an inch and a half-ring-shaped nails to secure it. You should have one about every eight inches. Now this one worked out nicely. You can see my lean went underneath the door casing and butted right to the door. We got lucky, but my other door jamb over here is tight to the floor now.
So I'm going to need to cut a little bit off we're going to get to that in a minute. Let's get this board nailed off now you don't have to do this. My other door jamb worked out pretty awesome, but this one is cutting into it. There's no way that my lean is going to go underneath. So I'm going to cut this bottom off right here now you can either mark it like so or you can use the scrap piece of lean as a guy. Now our lean should slip right. It now door jams can be a little tricky cut.
Here's a way you can get around it. Take a scrap piece, lay it up to the door jamb and then just draw the shape of where your loan is going to go. That way, when you get your full length, measured and cut, you can just stencil this little guy onto your sheet. It'll go right in so this is a whole width of my board and then I'm going to need to cut this one a lot less. This one's a 22, this one's almost 25, so go ahead and measure from here to here and then in the corner as well, just to make sure the walls square after you get that mark, you can lay it in there next to the door jamb and just Draw the shape of where it's going to go.
That's going to go in the door. Jamb it's going to slip under the casing, come out and butt to the baseboard. Now I'm going to connect those two lines and I should have my perfect door. Jamb slipping. Make sure your butt joint here, that's the two factory edges, make sure that's been in tight, pull it back from the wall nail it off again make sure your nails at the seams are about eight inches apart.
