30 to 35 pounds
Likewise, how much does a box of flooring weigh?
All manufacturers are different. A good ballpark number to work with would be approximately 1.5 pounds per square foot for engineered hardwoods. Solid domestic(oak, maple, walnut etc) 3/4" hardwoods weigh in at 2.8 pounds, while exotic hardwoods weigh 3.8 pounds per square foot.
Vinyl flooring naturally expands and contracts in the heat and cold. Stop the floor between a quarter inch and a half inch shy of the wall to allow for this natural expansion. If the floor is installed flush with the wall there is no room for growth in the hot months and the loose-lay floor can easily buckle.
