Common Vinyl Installation

Vinyl flooring is renowned for its ease of installation, making it an ideal choice for DIY enthusiasts of all skill levels. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a novice, installing vinyl flooring is straightforward and yields impressive results. Various installation methods are available, each suited to different preferences and requirements, including tongue-and-groove, peel-and-stick, and sheet vinyl.

For tongue and groove vinyl planks, work from left to right in your space, with the first plank in the corner of the room. Ensure there is a ⅜” expansion gap from the wall. As you lay planks, add spacers around the edges every few feet to maintain this gap. Complete the first row by interlocking the tongue and groove connectors and aligning the seams. Tap the planks into a locked position with a tapping block and rubber mallet. When you come up to a wall or other object that you need to cut around, measure the space and mark on the plank with a t-square where you need to cut. There are several ways to cut vinyl planks – check the manufacturer’s instructions to see what the product you’re installing requires. Cutting methods include scoring and snapping or using a tile or circular saw. Continue moving down the room, ensuring that the planks are interlocked and all the seams have a tight fit.

Before you peel the backing from your peel-and-stick vinyl tile and get to work laying the flooring, first determine the pattern of your tiles. Follow the arrow on the backing to set them in the correct direction and determine if you want them staggered or in a linear layout on your floor. Then, beginning with a corner tile, slowly peel off the backing sheet and firmly place the adhesive tile onto the surface. Continue this process for the entire row. When you reach a wall or another object you need to fit around, use a t-square and a utility knife or snips to cut your vinyl tile to the correct dimensions.

One of the easiest types of vinyl to install is sheet vinyl. Once you unroll the vinyl sheet, use a utility knife and a ruler to cut the vinyl to fit the edges of the room and around any objects. To secure the flooring in place, sheet vinyl flooring requires an adhesive. A full-bond floor will need adhesive applied to the entire surface area, whereas a perimeter-bond floor will only need to be secured around the edges of the room and at the seams. After laying your adhesive, carefully lay the vinyl sheet back in place and press firmly to form a secure bond.

Wear Surfaces:

Vinyl No-Wax

This entry-level surface offers some resistance to scuffs and stains. However, this surface lacks the durability that is required to ensure it holds up in high-traffic areas. This type also requires a higher level of maintenance, including regular washing and occasional polishing to restore the gloss.

Urethane (PVC)

Compared to vinyl no-wax surfaces, urethane vinyl tile retains its new appearance much longer because this surface is more durable. This upgraded surface also requires less maintenance, stays shiny without polishing or buffing, and has more resistance to scuffs, scrapes, stains, and household chemicals.

Enhanced Urethane

Vinyl flooring is offered in several levels of enhanced urethane. This type of surface provides the greatest durability and resistance to scuffs, scrapes, and stains. Regular sweeping and occasional mopping are all needed to maintain these floors. This surface type also retains its shine the longest.
