That’s why I created this SIMPLE  Course to follow and it’s for any skill level!   


I Designed this course to COMPLETELY ELIMINATE FEAR. Look, I know that many of you have either done small projects or you have not done this before at all.

I was in the same boat when I installed  plank for the first time 20 years ago. It was a disaster and YOUTUBE was not even born yet… I didn’t know the different tricks and tips that I now use and teach.  Now I am a Pro at it and have installed Millions of Square feet of plank.

Because I have been where you are, I was able to  design this course through the eyes of a DIY’er(your eyes).

I teach this in a common sense way that is easy to learn and easy to understand. With the tips and Methods I have developed, even newest DIY’er will get a Professional looking installation.

One Year of Access

You may just be in the Planning stages of your project – No Worries, your membership lasts for an entire year, so you have plenty of time to access all of the Easy to Learn resources made available to you inside Plank Bootcamp.

Vinyl Plank Reviews

With so many choices of Vinyl Plank to choose from, it can be very difficult to decide on which plank is best. NO WORRIES, Joe has your back! We went to Lowe’s, Home Depot, LL Flooring, Floor and Decor, Menards and bought some plank. Then each Brand of Plank was tested for Scratch Resistance and durability, how easy it is to cut, strength of the locking system, how many different patterns there are in a box, wear layer and ease of installation.

If you have a Plank in mind and you do not see a review for it, NO PROBLEM! 

Share the Brand with Joe and he will give you advice and the Pro’s and Con’s about that plank before you BUY.

Over 40 different plank were tested and we will be adding more!
