Vinyl is a versatile flooring material, and that is one of the reasons it is so popular. It can be installed from the basement to the attic on many subfloors and existing flooring materials. In addition, both sheet vinyl and thicker luxury vinyl tile and plank brands can be placed over a concrete slab. PSLflooring.com in Port St. Lucie, Florida, offers a large selection of LVT and LVP flooring and sheet vinyl, too. We carry brands by Bruce, Armstrong, Cali Bamboo, and more.
Luxury vinyl installation
Vinyl plank flooring is usually designed for floating floor installation. That means the floor does not need to be attached to the concrete subfloor. Instead, LVT installation is either glue-down or a floating floor over the subfloor.
Sheet vinyl installation
For your sheet vinyl flooring project to be successful, concrete must be level and clean. In addition, holes and cracks must be repaired. Concrete is a poor thermal insulator, but the underlayment part of the installation process adds warmth underfoot.
Types of underlayment
Underlayment, or padding, is laid on a concrete slab before vinyl flooring is installed. More specifically, a vapor barrier underlayment is used with concrete to keep moisture away from the floor. In addition, underlayment reduces noise and adds softness underfoot.
