• 4 Simple Steps For Installing Self Adhesive Vinyl Floor

    If you are bored or fed up with your old flooring and want something new, vinyl flooring could be just what you are looking for. It is affordable, colorful and durable. Vinyl flooring comes in a variety of colors and patterns to be admired. Self-adhesive vinyl flooring is easy to attach to the floor and looks great.

    There are four major steps involved in installing self-adhesive vinyl flooring:

    1. Prepare the floor:
     The first thing you need to do is prepare the area where the vinyl floor tiles or sheets are supposed to be installed. This involves removing the old floor. Make sure the floor is flat, even, dry and without any bumps. Remove anything that might come in the way like furniture, appliance or any other stationary item. You do not need to remove anything which has been permanently affixed like cabinets or vanities.

    2. Measuring the room: You need to measure the size of the room where the vinyl floor tiles or sheets are to be laid. Make markings on the floor in the order in which the vinyl floor tiles or sheets have to be laid. It is quite important to do the measurement correctly or else you might end up being short on material. It is advisable to get little more vinyl floor tiles or sheets than the measurement requires. You might want to prepare a paper template of the floor. For this, you need to cut heavy construction paper into larger strips and lay it on the floor piece by piece until the entire floor gets covered and tape all the paper together.

    3. Placing the underlay: If the old flooring requires a lot of correction work, then placing an underlay is a better option. Use a vinyl grade under layer plywood and cut it into large pieces. Then place the underlying plywood carefully and leave it to acclimate for 3-4 days. For placing the under layer, a special staple needs to be used because using nails or screws will lead to bumps on the floor. These staples need to go all the way through the plywood. Use a sander to remove all the bumps and edges from the plywood.

    4. Applying the vinyl floor tiles or sheets: This is the last and most important step. Vinyl comes in sheets and tiles. You need to chalk down the pattern required to put the vinyl floor tiles or sheets down across the room. Self-stick vinyl flooring comes with adhesive on the back, so you just need to remove the sheet and stick it to the floor.
