How to Install a New Vinyl Floor

Vinyl floor installation is one of the very easiest floors that you can install. Because the vinyl planks have a sticky material on the back of the vinyl, you require less tools and less time then other forms of flooring installation.

As with all flooring installation jobs, your first step should be to sweep and clean the subfloor. This is important because any blemishes on the this layer will be visible once the vinyl has been successfully installed.

Once the floor has been cleaned, measure the space you intend to install over. times the width of your room by its height and add 10%.

Next, lay down an underlay. This is what you will stick your vinyl planks to, it also acts as insulation and makes your floor more comfortable to walk on.

Now place your first plank in one corner of the room and continue adding the planks in a straight line. To stick the vinyl planks down, first remove the protective film covering the sticky side and then firmly pus down on the vinyl to stick it to the underlay. Simply carry on laying your planks down next to each other until the opposite side of the room has been reached.

Any corners or overhangs which are found in the room must be measured, then cut a perfectly matched indent into the vinyl plank so it will snugly against the wall. And there you have it, your new vinyl floor has been successfully installed.
