Bar on top of flooring?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am replacing my old bar and am looking at laying some new vinyl plank flooring down at the same time. Can I do the flooring first and then build the bar over the top, or would you recommend cutting the flooring around the bar?

It seems like the bar would be more stable down on the subfloor since most vinyl plank systems that I see have a chushion underneath. Once you do this it would be pretty much a permanant fixture though. If you have it on top, you might be able to move it arround according to need etc.

My bar is attached to the subfloor. The wood flooring was installed up to and around the bar.

Since my bar was never intended to be moved it is not an issue for me.

I would secure the bar to the subfloor the the planking around that. The flooring needs to be able to expand and if you have the bar secure on top of that you may end up getting seperation in noticable spots around the bar becasue the open floor will be expanding and the stuff under the bar won't be able to. I did the same thing at my last house and basically ruined the flooring.

My bar is built right over the flooring. It is also bolted to the floor and can not be removed.

See sig for pics.
