So I'm gonna lay vinyl flooring in this laundry room and, as you can see, they've got a few spots that need to be fixed. There are a couple trouble spots: some water damage these spots need to be fixed and repaired before it put down the vinyl floor. So the first thing you want to do is identify the spots to repair, so we can fix the sub floor before you lay the underpayment, then you want to remove and cut away any loose flooring so that the sub floor is nice and solid.
Then we'll start patching the holes with this imploringly mud to make sure that they are reinforced and nice and solid. Then those holes you can patch with the plywood. Then you can start installing quarter-inch underpayment to give the surface a nice smooth surface. Before you lay the vinyl down, then you want to make sure that you staple down the underpayment staples about six inches apart and then a lot closer on the seams of one unit. Make sure you use lots of staples around any trouble spots and then, when you do the scenes, you want to make sure that your staples are one to two inches apart.
This will ensure that those seams will never curl up or come up on the vinyl. So we're almost ready to install the vinyl so just clean and sweep up all debris and then you're ready to lay down your vinyl flooring. You're gonna rough cut the vinyl about two to three inches extra on the walls. That way, when you glue down the floor that moves a little bit, you have extra on the side. Then it won't be short. So all you do is fold over one half and I'll get ready to glue down the one half you want to spread the glue out with your trowel and make sure that the trowel is ours at an angle so that it gives you a nice, thin layer And you don't have any excess anywhere so definitely make sure that you don't have this much glue on the floor. You want to make sure they have a nice, thin layer.
Okay, the floor is ready to lay the vinyl down and make sure when you roll your vinyl out that you don't get any wrinkles in it as you roll it out, pull it out nice and easy that way. It all goes down and there's not gonna. Bean big bubbles or any damage to the vinyl floor for a small area like this, you can just use your hand to push out the bubbles. If you have a big area, make sure you use a roller when you're ready for the other half just roll it back and expose it one or two inches. This is the amount of glue that you need to spread at one time.
If you use too much, it gets kind of messy and all you're gonna do is just go back and forth back and forth. Getting the excess on the trowel as you go, this side can be laid down and all you're gonna do is push out the bubbles. Just let the camera is shown here. You want to push away from the center towards the walls. You don't have any bubbles in the middle of the floor, then you just want to finish trimming out the edges that extra two or three inches that you had on the walls finish trimming that out nice and close.
