Types of Vinyl Flooring
Based on the method of adhesion, there are two types of vinyl flooring:

- Glue-down vinyl that requires a layer of vinyl flooring glue under it before placing the vinyl on the floor.
We provide versatile designs of vinyl flooring in Hythe, which are available on our website for you to choose from:

Process of Vinyl Flooring Installation
Appropriate vinyl flooring installation is necessary to ensure its longevity and keep it in good condition for many years. The process of vinyl floor fitting in Hythe is completed by us in the following steps:
- We determine the size of your room using a measuring tape and provide the suitable quote.
- Our vinyl flooring fitters then decide the required amount of vinyl for your room.
- If you want to replace the old flooring, we remove the previous flooring to make the floor surface dry, flat, rigid, and smooth.
- If your floor is not flat and smooth, we level it up by installing an underlayment made up of plywood and leaving the room for 2 to 3 days so that it can settle down.
- You can tell us about the type of vinyl pattern you want to install. Vinyl sheets are installed by cutting them to fit your room, and vinyl tiles are set in a specific pattern according to your preference.
- We then press the vinyl to the floor, ensuring no bubbles are formed after applying glue.
- Finally, the vinyl flooring installation ends when the adhesive becomes dry.
Does vinyl flooring require more maintenance?
You can keep your vinyl flooring looking best by sweeping it to remove dirt and running a damp mop on it.
What is the suitable temperature range for vinyl flooring installation?
The temperature range for sheet vinyl and its adhesive is from 65°F to 100°F for almost 48 hours before and 48 hours after installation. On the other hand, the temperature should not go above 85°F when epoxy adhesive is utilised.
How thick is the vinyl flooring?
The thickness of vinyl flooring ranges between 2mm and 8mm. In commercial areas, vinyl flooring of higher thickness is usually used because of more foot traffic in those spaces.
Do we have to remove the cabinets and vanities during the vinyl flooring installation?
No, you do not have to remove the permanent cabinets or vanities, as the flooring can be installed around them. However, you must remove the furniture or other appliances from the room.
