There is no more imitation from wood or tile because the materials that offered in the stores are ‘the real thing’ especially for waterproof vinyl plank flooring. To install these tiles what you have to prepare are just utility knives and a carpenter square. I was using rustic pine plank types here for increasing the waterproofness. Moreover, the texture is formed by wood grain.
For the special waterproof vinyl plank flooring, there is a type of planks that able to be joined together after adhered of each surfaces. I suggest you to choose this kind of planks because you just have to press them together and you will have tight floor ever on your home. For your information, vinyl flooring must be adhered with smooth and great cohesive glue. In other words, it will be useful if you have these kinds of planks, right? The level underlayment is also influenced the joints between the tiles and others. So, your DIY vinyl plank flooring can be perfect in the end.
Step by step waterproof vinyl plank flooring installation
First of all in installing waterproof vinyl plank flooring is replacing the old underlayment. If you think there is no damage, you can use it once again without removing it from this place. Plywood will be the replacement thing for the damaged level underlayment because these vinyl planks are also wood material. Try to replace with the same thickness of plywood. The floor penetrations should be considered firstly before you applying those waterproof planks on the floor. The penetration would help the underlayment in aligning their positions. So, do it measurement by checking the edge of the room before installing them.
In securing the underlayment of the waterproof vinyl plank flooring, you need some 8 inches screws in every direction and joints. I am not choice the screws’ type because it is on your demand. The most problem encountered is from the end of the finishing. Mostly, there are many planks that reach other room because there is no wall to prevent it. It is the time to use the knife to cut the planks properly. I am afraid it will be over-cut if using saws. The measurement of the cutting is less than two inches from the room gap.
