While replacing the floor heat registers this week with modulating versions, had a good look at how the original carpet had faded and worn in 4 plus years use. That has to be about the cheapest grade carpet found.
The living area is half carpet and half vinyl. Removing the carpet is easy - a box or carpet cutter will do a great job and a pair of wire cutters pull the many staples.
OK, carpets removed (slide carpet stays) - now I'll need to remove that OEM vinyl which extends over 2 feet under the carpet. I can feel the end of it when I walk over it in my bare feet. Is that vinyl fully cemented down or is it a 'floating' version where only the edges are cemented (stapled?)? Or does it depend on when the 5er was built and our 2014 HC was built in mid 2013
We haven't decided on what kind of flooring product to use yet but will probably be one of the engineered material wood look floors. Picking it out - that's my DWs part of the project
