How to Install Vinyl Tile Flooring (Self-adhesive and Glue-down)
Before You Start Your Resilient Installation
Step one is figuring out what type of resilient flooring you want to install. The easiest type to install is probably a self-adhesive vinyl tile, but it may not be the longest lasting depending on how much you are willing to spend. These are great for novice do-it-yourselfers who are installing in a smaller, less trafficked area like a laundry room.
Glue-down vinyl tile or sheet vinyl can be a little trickier to install, but not by much. They also tend to last a little longer, which makes them great in high traffic areas such as your kitchen.
Once you’ve made a final decision and bought your resilient flooring, don’t skip right to the installation. You need to let your flooring acclimate to its new environment first. Allow your flooring materials to sit in the room they will be installed for 3-5 days before installing.
