STEP 1: —
REMOVING THE OLD FLOORING
We will need to create a blank canvas. So, we rip up all that old flooring, including the “smooth edge”. Depending on the size of the area we are renovating, and what flooring we are removing, this could become quite a large job, so asking for help from a friend or neighbour will help speed up this process.
STEP 2: —
LEVELLING THE AREA
We need to ensure that the area to be laid with the new vinyl planks is completely flat with no lumps or divots. This can be achieved with what is called a ‘skim coat’. Essentially, it is a levelling compound that looks similar to cement slurry.
STEP 3: —
LAYING THE VINYL PLANKS
Finally, once the skim coat has cured, it is time to lay the new vinyl plank flooring. We find the best way to run the space and set out the room as per manufacturers guide lines. We apply Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) to the floor with a paint roller. Then, we lay the planks top to tail in your desired direction, making sure that we leave no gaps between each of the planks.
