Vinyl Floor Installation There’s so much to love about vinyl flooring. It’s an excellent way to enhance your home’s beauty while adding value. Its versatility allows you to choose from a wide variety of striking designs, colors and patterns. Vinyl can mimic hardwoods or look like ceramic tile. Plus, installing vinyl flooring is a great choice for high-traffic areas since it’s resilient and comfortable. Vinyl flooring comes in three formats. Vinyl tiles are ideal for smaller rooms and attach in any pattern you desire. Vinyl sheets are ideal for larger rooms and cut to the dimensions of your floor for a mostly seamless look. Vinyl planks are also more suited for larger rooms and can look like a single board or recreate the look of multiple smaller boards.

How to Buy Vinyl Flooring Vinyl flooring is available in either rotovinyl or inlay. Inlay vinyl is made by scattering a pattern of vinyl chips on a backing and melting them together. It’s somewhat brittle and tough to cut and seam, and is therefore not recommended for do-it-yourselfers. The other type, rotovinyl, is made by laminating a vinyl pattern between a backing sheet and a clear wear layer, and is much easier to install. Rotovinyl is available with either a felt or a vinyl backing. The felt-backed version that we’re using requires you to spread glue over the entire floor, whereas the vinyl-backed flooring requires only a narrow band of adhesive around the perimeter and along the seams. We’ve chosen to demonstrate installation of felt-backed rotovinyl over a new layer of special 1/4-in. underlayment plywood. Installation procedures and adhesives differ for each type of vinyl flooring, and vary from one manufacturer to another, so be sure to get instructions for the type of flooring you choose. Vinyl flooring is available in 6- and 12-ft. widths. You’ll save half the cost or more by installing the vinyl yourself. Higher-priced flooring has a thicker wear layer and may have richer patterns, but even less-expensive flooring will last a decade. Compare the flexibility of different floors by bending a corner of the sample. If the backing breaks easily or the vinyl seems stiff, you’ll have a hard time installing the flooring without tearing it. Home centers and flooring retailers keep a few rolls of sheet vinyl flooring in stock. You’ll also find samples of flooring that you can order. Take a dimensioned sketch of your room along and ask the salesperson for help figuring the quantity. Check the installation requirements and purchase the correct adhesive, seam sealer (if your installation requires a seam), trowel, floor filler and matching caulk.
