    Default Elastilon

    I was walking through the Big Box Hardware store and saw this Self Adhesive Hardwood Installation system. I was wondering if anyone has come across this in an Inspection or have used the product in an installation. Wondering how it holds up. Thanks!

    Not sure how the inspector would know if that system was installed? All the inspector can see is the top surface of the wood/laminate/etc.

    Haha thats obvious but I mean if anyone came across a floor that came apart in some areas. I just raised an eyebrow when I saw this. Find it hard to believe it would perform well.

    I agree.

    It will probably work as well as any other peel-and-stick flooring works ... not very well.

    Similar to self-adhesive countertop backsplashes that are all the rage with local low-life house-flipping SOBs.
