In Plank Bootcamp, Joe will teach you how to:

Choosing the Best Plank Direction

I decide Plank direction using 3 Key Factors. Lighting and Joist direction are not on this list. However, the condition of the floor over rules all 3 of these key factors.

In Plank Bootcamp, you will learn about these key factors so, you can choose the best direction for your installation.


Find the Best Place to Start

I don’t just start anywhere. Several key factors help me decide where the best place to start is.

Don’t make the the install harder, use this guide to make it easier! 

You will be able to use these Key Factors and find the Best Plank Direction for your project!

The Plank Bootcamp Guide will quickly help you make this decision.

Get the Perfect Layout

Using the Plank Bootcamp Guide, you will be able to get the best layout possible.

You will be able to use this guide for any size layout – one room or an entire house.

A good layout will also help you avoid causing difficult situations.

Use the Plank Bootcamp Guide to easily find the Best Layout for your project.

Cheater Board Series

The Cheater Board is an amazing tool! It will save you more time on your installation, than anything else.

Using Plank Bootcamp you will find  a cheater board video for each situation you will encounter.

Each of these situations will demonstrate using the cheater board and installing the plank. 


Install Around Walls and Reconnect

There is nothing worse than going around a wall only to get to the other side and you are unable to reconnect. This is a Nightmare….

There is also, nothing more satisfying then going around a wall and coming to the other side and reconnecting perfectly.

In Plank Bootcamp you will learn my Fail Proof Tips to get around and reconnect.

It works with walls, cabinets, islands, fireplaces and more.

Wood Subfloor or a Concrete Slab

Whether you are on a concrete slab or a wood subfloor.

There are some major differences in installation and tools you will use. You will find these in Plank Bootcamp. 

Find what tools and installation supplies will be different. I also will show you how to use them. ”

Don’t waste money on tools that you might not need. And don’t forget to get the tools you will need.

Floor Prep can be HARD

Humps, dips and different height levels will cause joint failure on most Plank.

Many skip this step or even worse, they try to fix something and cause more problems then what they started with.

Using the correct tools and the right product and the right methods is crucial to get the floor flat.

In Plank Bootcamp you will find Easy-Goof-Proof methods to get the Prep done right.

You Don't Have to Use Transitions

Most of us Hate Trasitions in doorways. I never use them and never will.

There are some crucial steps I take to make this work.

Using Plank Bootcamp you will easily be able to continue plank into other rooms never using a transition.

In fact, when using my methods in Plank Bootcamp it will be easier to continue into a room, than it would be to break it at the door.


So Many Difficult Areas

Most installations are going to have a few difficult areas that you will be faced with. some of these are –

  • installing into doors
  • closets
  • hallways
  • angled walls
  • bathrooms
  • kitchens and more

Using my Plank Bootcamp Guide you will be able to easily overcome all of these difficult areas.
