How to install a vinyl flooring?
There is no shortage of options to consider when it comes to upgrading our homes. Installation of vinyl floor is one of those upgrades that can deliver a replenished, classy and long-lasting appearance to your home. In general, laying over a vinyl flooring on a flat surface is a pretty convenient task. Nevertheless, there are some important things to consider.
In this article, we tend to explain how to install a vinyl floor without causing much trouble. Once the flooring is laid over and the flooring is completed in one room, you will see how beautiful it is and how satisfying it is to you. If you consider laying click and lock planks, the process would be even easier.
It is important to remember that your vinyl flooring should be stored in a warm place. So, before being laid over on the floor, you should keep the planks in a substantially warm room. This is to ensure that the vinyl material become more flexible when they are heated up gently.
Once the heating process is completed, you can simply spread the vinyl materials and get an idea about how it accommodates the floor. We recommend you to start from the wall which is most visible to you. Then, spread the vinyl to the rest of the room and get an idea about the fittings. If the material fits fine, you can then start trimming it. However, before start laying the vinyl floor, it is compulsory to cover all the areas with a good understanding. Then, you can start trimming out the extra vinyl in the room.
When it comes to overlapping, it is better to overlap about 2.5 inches. At the completion of the general trimming, you should proceed to the trimming of the corners of the room as well. After this trimming, the vinyl should look very smooth and continuous on the walls.
Most of the people face a common issue when it comes to vinyl flooring. That is, the fixtures in the room. For instance, if the respective room has a sink or other permanent fitting, laying the vinyl would be a problem. However, this problem can be addressed in a smart manner just with the assistance of a custom template. All you have to do is to draw a template on a hard foam according to the fittings in the respective room. Then, the template must be laid prior to using the vinyl.
Make sure that the template you use is made on a hard foam instead of a soft paper. Otherwise, the template will wear off sooner than you expect. Make sure that you use a very sharp and safe knife. Using a blunt knife would spoil the template and the vinyl as there is no precision. However, if you feel that you are not 100% confident in laying vinyl on your floor, we highly recommend you to get the assistance of a professional installation service. Although these service providers cost some money, they offer excellent return on your investment.
