Wanting a new Vinyl Plank floor but don’t know where to start?
We will help you sort through all your options…
Vinyl Plank flooring has reined as a popular flooring option for the last few years. Homeowners love Vinyl Plank for the durability it offers and for it’s waterproof attributes. Vinyl Plank can come in wood or tile visuals. Since Vinyl Plank is waterproof, it can be installed everywhere in your home including bathrooms and kitchens. For homeowners that want the same floor flowing everywhere, Vinyl Plank has been a wonderful option. There are a huge range of qualities and types of Vinyl Plank flooring and not all are created equal. Some of these products are fantastic and some are very thin and have fragile locking mechanisms making them suitable for only specific applications. There are glue down Vinyl Plank floors, click style and even loose lay options. Your subfloor flatness really matters when it comes to Vinyl Plank floors. Some products call for the floor to be almost completely flat, for the installation to meet the manufacturer guidelines. Some of these products are so thin that the distance between your joists become a concern as any deflection in the subfloor will cause the floor to fail. With these products you may need to install another layer of wood underlayment to ensure the floor is sturdy enough to support the product. In this case, the cost of the wood underlayment will eat up any funds you may have saved by going with the cheaper thinner Vinyl Plank. Condo boards require certain sound barrier standards. So many times, we have seen customers purchase product only to discover that they can not get them approved by their condo board. The world of underlay to meet these requirements gets even more confusing for the average homeowner. Every Vinyl Plank floor will have specific underlayment requirements and some absolute no no’s. For example, adding too thick an underlay can void your warranty and cause the floor locking mechanism to fail. Our professional assistance in narrowing down the best option for your space will be an invaluable asset to you. We know Vinyl Plank flooring products inside and out and we apply this knowledge extensively when it comes time for us to install your floor. Let us help you make the best choice in flooring and then we will install it the way it’s supposed to be installed.
Vinyl plank installation faq
That depends on the size and layout of the area we are installing in, as well as the scope of work we are performing. The crew we send to your home will also affect the length of time your project will take. Some of our installers work alone and some are teams of three or more. Typically, once we know all the particulars of an install, we can provide an accurate timeline that allows our customers to plan their project.
It depends on your specific product and your installation environment. Condo board sound requirements can really impact this decision. Some products come with an attached pad that is sufficient and others will require a separate one. Glue down Vinyl Plank may not require an underlay at all.
Great question! Unfortunately, the answer is not very simple, as cost is affected by many factors. Often people want a quick square footage price and that is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to most installations. A glue down Vinyl Plank install is priced differently than a click install. Installing Vinyl Plank on stairs is more costly than installing it on your floor. Any additional work required is very job specific and makes up the entire scope of work for an installation project. Removal and replacement of doors and furniture, finishing around railings, moving appliance etc. are all very common tasks that make up a typical flooring installation. Also, the condition of your subfloor is the biggest wild card when it comes to determining the cost of an installation. Some subfloors require repairs to ensure the floor can be installed to meet the manufactures expectations. A thorough estimation process is required to provide an accurate installation cost for each project.
Typically, we want your baseboards off. Vinyl Plank does require an expansion gap and we can’t install the planks properly leaving the required gap, if the baseboards are left in place. We can install the floor leaving a gap in front of the baseboards if needed. In these circumstances, installing ¼ round in front of the baseboards is a viable option. This will cover the gap and allow the baseboard to stay in place. In some homes this can be an aesthetically pleasing option, and in others it just doesn’t look proper. Nine times out of ten we are removing and reinstalling baseboards as part of the installation procedure, or the customer is performing this task themselves.
Yes, Vinyl Plank on stairs can be a beautiful and functional option. We can do stairs as custom as us making stair nosing right out of the product or as cost effective as installing metal nosing. Stair installations can give customers some massive sticker shock but don’t be shy to ask about all the options you may have. You might be surprised at the more affordable variations available.
Any floor can scratch under the right circumstances. Dragging a heavy piece of furniture with sand under the legs can make a scratch in just about any floor. However, some floors are better for resisting surface scratches than others. Researching a specific products resistance to surface scratches is an important part of the buying process. This will be an important consideration for pet owners.
