Hi Randy.... I'm the other Randy here. Most of the installers here row cut instead of straight edge their seams. I used to think a straight edge was the propper tool for seams, but these guys taught me different. I row cut most seams now. If the rows are bowed a little, then stay tack them so the pieces are straight and put em together. (after sealing of course) I use thermo on almost all seams now, but don't build it up real deep so that it will ooze up.
Hi Randy... Just reiterating what these guys have already said. Row cut both sides - if your rowcutting tool allows you to place the blade on either side - place it so it cuts closest to the row. Sometimes on these medium/low density products (this one looks like one) the rows are far enough apart that even if you row cut them - if you cut closest to the edge on both sides (instead of to the yarn row) you end up with what appears to be a missing row right at the seam. Does that make sense? Looks like this (where the | is the row): Looking down the row at floor height: |_|_|_|__|_|_|_| That gap in the middle leaves an area at the seam where the yarns on either side don't have any support so they fall into the gap.
Nice description and visual, Tex.
