Easy Installation!

Need more convincing? How about vinyl wood plank flooring that is easy to install and doesn't require a professional to install it? Sounds great, right? Welcome to luxury vinyl flooring!

LVT comes in four different installation methods such as vinyl click, glue down, self-adhesive and loose lay. Each of these excellent methods is quite easy to install;

- Vinyl Click - This installation method involves using planks or tiles which "lock" into each other with a click mechanism. This is a great system as it is quick and easy to use and as such, does not require an expensive professional fitter. A D.I.Y novice can fit these floors easily. This is the best solution if you are installing over a moisture prone area as it can create an effective barrier.

- Self-Adhesive - This involves laying planks or tiles which have an adhesive backing onto the floor. While this a permanent solution, it is easy to work with and can be done by a novice floor fitter.

- Glue-down - This is another vinyl floor installation method which involves the use of glue to adhere the floor to the ground. This is a permanent solution and very difficult to remove, how the arrival of a new underlay known as "Viscoh 600" helps to make the removal process a lot easier. A roller is best used to ensure that the planks or tiles are properly fitted to the subfloor.

- Loose-lay - This is an installation method which involves simply laying the planks or tiles onto a subfloor where they are tightly placed against one another. The tiles or planks are often thicker than glue down and therefore, can provide a more pleasant sensation to walk upon. Once again, installation is easy and can be done without professional help.
