Good day all,
I'm looking to borrow/rent and enclosed for a month. My gf is moving in with me and I'm going to try and redo the flooring inside our house first. Around a 20 foot would be preferred, or longer works too.

I would need it for the entire month of March and it would be kept at my place.
If anyone can help me out, it would be appreciated
Thanks in advance :beer:

Don't have a trailer. But I am a hardwood flooring specialist. Let me know if I can help somehow.

Did you sells yours? Another option if you can't find a trailer is to get a pod. We used them for our last move. They will drop it off, move it and store it if needed.

Thanks,
I am in search of 9 sheets of 1/4 plywood to shim up my carpeted areas, to match the lino floor.

We looked at PODS Keith, and we'd be about a grand for the month. Even with it sitting in the yard, so thinking of an enclosed. And ya..... I sold my enclosed a couple of years ago and haven't replaced it yet.

Home Depot sells 5/16 ULAY for that.

¼" plywood is a tough one to find, unless you go with a Luan or that really crappy plywood...

We had a hard time measuring the height, and thought it was 1/4" Which would explain why it's difficult to find, so 3/8's makes sense, thanks.
Yes we are doing laminate

Don't got a trailer. But far as the floor goes look into vinyl plank flooring. We just put that in our kitchen and love it. Way easier to install then laminate.

Vinyl plank is the way to go, we install a lot at work, I'm going to pull our laminate out and do vinyl plank in our whole house, if you get the right one it's really strong, we have a sample glued to the shop floor for a month now, drive fork lift on it daily and it's like new!

Laminate actually DEGRADES a renovation...

It is the first thing people pull out of the house when they first buy it or do a reno.

There is a lot of nice click together vinyl also.. It is a floating floor and requires no adhesives.

People here definitely prefer wood. That being said, I would much prefer a laminate over vinyl products. And removing a ton of k3 to be able to install any nailed down floor can be an expensive or time consumming job. You get what you pay for, if your only dropping $1 a foot on product your not going to get a very nice floor. I'd stay clear of home Depot or timber town type products. And don't cheap out on underpad. You put down a nice underpad in will help with the floor temp and sound.
