When we decided to get hands-on with the recent installation at Bake Shop Bakes in Tyrone, PA, it was because we knew there would be installation “quirks” that we wanted to be able to explain to our customers.
New technologies always have these, and the best way to make installation a smooth experience for enthusiastic DIY-ers is to be able to relate to and communicate effectively with them.
This blog post details one of these quirks, which you would really encounter with any flooring installation. What to do around corners, weird spaces, and in crooked rooms.
Now, we can replace any board in the doorway in less than 5 minutes with no need to shut down the restaurant for repairs. The best news is that we haven’t needed to repair any planks yet, because in the last two months the hard maple floor and the HD polyurethane has held up quite well (even through Easter and early summer)!
In your home, you know best where to expect wear damage and where it is less likely to occur, so this type of decision will be up to you! But anytime you reach a weird spot, a saw (usually a table saw) can be used to cut your Steller board into the shape and size you need in that location. Don’t forget to seal it with the provided sealant on the cut edge, then you can pop it down just like the rest of your floor!
