Once you finally choose your ideal type of vinyl flooring, you're going to have to get it installed. While it's usually recommended to get an expert to do it for you, it may not always be possible, or you may want to simply know the different methods that are out there. Here are some of the most popular installation methods, and their pros and cons.
- One method of installing vinyl flooring is the glue-down method, where an adhesive is spread along the floor and the flooring is laid on top of it.
- This method provides a lot of stability to the flooring, making it the perfect option for high-traffic areas like hallways.
- Also, this method will help your vinyl flooring to absorb heavy loads, so you won't have to worry about heavier furniture leaving ugly indentations in the floor when removed.
- However, this method makes replacing vinyl flooring a quite tedious process -- most of the adhesives used for this method are very durable and hold the vinyl flooring down with surprising strength.
