What is the Luxury Vinyl Installation Process?
Not all types of luxury vinyl brands and products utilize the same installation methods. Always check with the manufacturer instructions which installation method works best with your new flooring. As for any new flooring, we recommend investing in professional installers to get the job done.
Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are made to fit together like puzzle pieces. A new and common installation method is known as floating floors, which can be installed over most subfloors and even an existing floor, if they feature a cork backing. There is no adhesive needed, making the installation process more efficient. Before your floors are installed, professional installers make sure your subfloors are clean, dry and free of any imperfections which could transfer through the surface of your new floor.
Where can Luxury Vinyl be Installed?
With luxury vinyl flooring, you can have high end wood and stone look flooring installed anywhere in your home. Most popular places include kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms. Luxury vinyl features realistic looks, so your guests will never be able to tell the difference unless you tell them.
