1.20 Hardwood and tile flooring project. What to do first?

Q. I am redoing the tile in my entryway and installing hardwood flooring adjacent to that. Which do I do first? the tile or the hardwood? And why? Ive had conflicting answers from installers. Also, the tile was installed directly onto the floor, no subfloor. Im sure its best to remove it (im dreading that!) and redo it properly onto plywood or any other options??? Thanks for any input.

A. Remove the tile first and make sure that you have a fairly smooth surface to deal with. Some wood flooring will have a foam pad on the back of it so you can put it directly on the exposed ground. If not they make a pad to put down first. Then start to measure and cut your pieces to fit. Its easy but time consuming. I just did my neighbors living room and dining room.

1.20 Kitchen Floor Remodel...What kind of flooring do you have and do you like it?

Q. I'm wanting to either put in tile flooring, or slate flooring in our kitchen area. Right now we have vinal that Express Home Services installed. Which was a crappy job and the quality is less than zero. We will never use them again to install flooring. We ended up having to call and report them to the Register of Contractors because of their sloppy job. They even cut part of my carpet...Ugh..I was so unhappy with the whole thing. Anyway...our vinal is already coming apart and it's only been two years since we've had it put in. I know I don't want vinal again. I'm leaning towards tile, or slate. What do you have in your kitchen and is it easy to clean? Does it maintain its quality/durability? What company did you use and did you have great service? Please let me know what you have experienced, and any advice/suggestions you can give me to help me make the right choice, and to make me aware of anything that pertains to hiring someone/company to install the flooring itself. I just don't want to be taken advantage again like with Express Home Services. Thanks so much!

A. We have tile, they are about 1 ft by 1 ft. I love it! Its easy to clean too. One thing I recommend to you...if you pick tile flooring, look closely at the ridges in the pattern. Ours has a tendency to trap dirt in the ridges which regular mopping won't get rid of. I have to get on my hands & knees once a month & scrub with a brush to get into the ridges of the pattern. Next time we will go with a smoother finish! The house came with the tile, the guy we bought it from installed it himself. I helped my parents install the tile in their bathroom, and it really wasn't too hard to do. Consider doing it yourself! If you are going to hire someone, make sure you check with the BBB. Also, get recommendations from family & friends who might have used someone.

1.20 Name of a reputable contractor for installing a new kitchen on Long Island?

Q. I'm looking to completely gut and replace my kitchen in my 2000 sq. ft. 1964 colonial in Suffolk County, NY (worth about $500k). The kitchen is 16' x 12'. We want to demo it to the studs, replace the subfloor and wall insulation, add a small wall, run a new gas line from the sidewalk (about 50'), then install a new kitchen including new sheetrock, lighting, ceramic floors, cabinets, appliances, etc. We also need to gut an adjoining 12' x 16' den (new sheetrock, add high hats, replace two doors and continue the tile flooring throughout the den as well as the main foyer floor leading from the front door back to the kitchen. Question is, how long should a project like this take and what kind of budget should we expect for a job like this? Semi-custom cabinets, silestone countertops, GE profile appliances, etc.). Does anyone know of a reputable contractor in the area who could bid on this project? We're thinking of doing this in the Summer of 2008 and will be paying cash. Thanks!

A. Contact NARI (national association of remodeling industry) very reputable people that have to be certified and have anual furthering education hours. They will have a list of certified contractors in your area. www.nari.org

1.20 Did anyone ever use home depot contractor service?

Q. Im thinking of doing a bathroom remodel i thought it would be easy to use my home depot credit card to purchase and pay for contracting services all in one....has anyone used home depot for this???? is it inexpensive? i need tile flooring instal new pedestal sink and painting....

A. Yes, I've used HD.....HUGE MISTAKE!!! Understand that the HD credit card might have their name on it, but it is owned by Citi Bank. Regardless of what happens, Citi Bank wants their money. It took me 15 weeks (without a kitchen) before we finally got a half ass resolution. Google "Complaints about Home Depot" and be prepared for page after page after page. Once they got your money (and they want 100% up front) you can warm the bench until they decide to do something. Any other contractor will want a deposit with the balance due on satisfactory completion. Good luck!!!

1.20 Home remodeling question--adding a wall to enclose a dining room?

Q. I am extending a wall to enclose a dining room to a den. I read on a home improvement website that tile flooring underneath the extension would have to be removed. Does anyone know if only the necessary portion of tile can be removed without having to redo the entire floor? If so, what is the best way to do it? Thanks.

A. Yes, you can remove only the portion of the tile that will be located under the new wall. The simplest way to do this, would be to use a circular saw, with a diamond, or graphite blade (assuming this is ceramic tile). If this is actually vinyl tile, you dont need to remove it at all, just build right over it. You can get blades to cut ceramics, marble, steel, etc at your local building supply store... just tell them what diameter you need, and what you are cutting, and they can help you select the appropriate blade. The reason you remove ceramic tile, when installing a wall, is that securing the wall to the floor, will often crack the tile. By cutting out where the wall is to be installed, you avoid this. Once the tile is cut, then comes the fun part of prying out the portion where the wall will sit, hehehe. Have Fun
