If you’re looking to replace your flooring, you’ll love the benefits of vinyl plank flooring. Durable and easy to install, you won’t have to tear out your old flooring to install your vinyl plank flooring.
They come in a variety of colors and shapes as seen at the Vinyl Plank Flooring | Ferma Flooring store. The planks are very easy to work with and you can install them in less than a day no matter how large your floor is.
All you need is a floor and the vinyl tiles and a hammer to tap them into place. If you have a heavy duty floor roller to go over the top, all the better, however, you can bypass this step and we’ll tell you how in a minute.
To prepare your old floor, simply vacuum and or sweep it. Make sure that anything loose is removed from your flooring. You don’t have to sand it down or remove it to replace it. Just leave it as is.
Next, you’re going to remove your vinyl planks and lay then in a row end to end at one end of your room. This is your base layer.
You’re going to lay the next row out, but make sure that you vary the seams. This may mean that you have to cut one of the pieces of vinyl in half. This is fairly easy to do with a sharp Exacto type knife. Simply score the floor piece and snap it over.
As you lay your second row, take care to ensure that you’re keeping the proper sides together. It’s like piecing together a puzzle and the pieces lock into one another. Use your hammer to gently tap the pieces together as you go.
At the end of your row, look it over and ensure that all of the pieces are connected. Then, start your next row making sure once again to stagger the seams.
When you get to the end of your installation, look the flooring over and ensure that all seems are meeting properly and that your flooring is in place. If everything looks right, get your roller out and roll it over the entire floor.
Don’t have a roller? You can use something heavy, a few people or whatever you have on hand. Just make sure to press this or walk over the entire floor to press it down. The more you use it, the more this will happen.
